Im sorry but a round halo is NOT a cushion shaped halo. AND if you haven’t seen her for 10 years, why would you care what she named her daughter or what she buys? She’s had her ring for 10 years, who knows what her tastes were then, from the time frame, you weren’t around to know if she picked it herself or received it and always hated it.. that doesn’t mean she can’t like something completely different now. Move on!

If someone was copying my major life choices, like my child’s name, I’d cut them off.  That’s creepy behavior.

seriously, who cares? It’s not like you custom designed a completely unique ring- when you pick a popular style, other people are going to have the same style. Take it as a compliment that she liked your ring.

GIA wants to sell it for $27k so she went through EGL? Wut?

It doesn’t work that way.

My best friend just named her baby Emma even though she KNEW I had that name picked out since I was a kid. She justified it because her DH had a dream that they called the baby Emma…. This wouldn’t be SO bad if it was for the fact that she alwas seems like she is in CONSTANT competition with me, so I TOTALLY understand what you are going through.

But, her having a similar ring doesn’t take away any specialness from your ring. If anything its sad she can’t have her own taste and just copies yours. Its kind of sad for her.

@cmbr:  aaaaaand this. EGL and GIA are gemological grading standards (labs). They don’t determine prices at all.

I can see how the ring thing would be annoying considering everything else.  Normally I would say that the ring thing is no big deal.  But between copying two major things (ring and kids name) and also trying to make you plan your wedding around her it sounds like she is very competative and a bit self-absorbed.

Sometimes I think I know what I love, but I try to keep an open mind and try on all sorts of styles when I’m shopping for something important. Oftentimes, what I actually end up picking is completely different from what I consider my style – maybe that’s what happened to her? She has a different typical style, but fell in love with the ring she picked when she tried it on. It might have nothing to do with your ring – or the beauty of your ring may have just opened her eyes to the style.

I guess I don’t really see the issue. However, about telling you when to get married? Nope – not her decision!

um halos are super popular right now, a round halo and a cushion look totally different and really who the heck cares? If you don’t like her, don’t be friends with her. But, this is super petty and high-school.
