I dont really think there’s a such thing as too much bling.  I think youre ring looks great on your hand.  Personally, I dont really think too much of someone being flashy, or showy, or as you put it “materialistic or maybe I’m trying to look richer” unless it were a HUGE center stone.

@smitten248:    Your ring is gorgeous!!!  Rock it with pride.  Sometimes people can be a little envious so maybe that’s what it is with their reactions.  But don’t let what anyone else thinks stop you from loving your ring!!  It’s a beautiful symbol of your love and committment.  It’s so much more than “bling.”  It’s not just any old piece of jewelry, it means something very important.

Besides, it really is a perfectly beautiful ring and not over the top, at all!  Don’t let the haters steal your joy! 

Here is my ring:  I love it and my Fiance gave it to me and that is all that really matters to me.  I could not care less what any other person on the planet thinks of it, besides myself and him.

I would not lookat your ring and think anything along the lines of too showy or materialistic.  In fact, my first thought would be “What a cool way of setting a princess stone!” 🙂  And this is coming from someone with a smaller tcw.  So no worries!

I think it looks beautiful.

I know it can be hard to not hear any comments on your ring other than that. When we got engaged I thought everyone would notice my ring and tell me how beautiful it was. And only one person did. And she’s in the diamond business. What I realized was that really the only people who notice rings are either the ones waiting (like I was) or the ones engaged. I guess people just see it, think shiny, and then don’t care lol. Don’t get down about it, just be happy that yall are moving forward in your life!

First: only one person in the world needs to love your ring, and that’s Y-O-U. Nobody else has a say. 

Well, maybe your Fiance, but even then, you’re the one wearing it. You chose it, you already said you love it. Don’t let other people influence how you feel about it.

Your ring is beautiful!  You shouldn’t feel weird about it at all.  I’m sure whoever made the comment is just jealous.  I am!  lol

@smitten248:  They may just be asking cause it’s a very different and unique setting from the “typical” solitare e-ring.  If he did pick it on his own, I think it would be difficult to pick something like that so unique and be sure you loved it.  So they could just be curious and not making any judgement on the ring itself.

@pinkshoes:  That’s a very good point, it is an unusual setting and very unique.  It’s very pretty!  That’s probably exactly why they’re saying what they’re saying, not that it’s too much bling.
