My old workplace was like that, they told me that if I get engaged my ring should at least be 2.5cts based on his job. When we bought our house they said the size of the house shows how much he loves me. And (this is a good one!), we were in a meeting one day and a girl came in wearing a Pandora bracelet and my boss looked at it and after the girl left she said “ugh, Pandora, guess she couldn’t afford Tiffanys”. Leaving that job was one of the best moves I’ve ever made!

For the record, I think your ring is very pretty! She definitely sounds like she’s jealous to me.

That is such BS.  Your ring is gorgeous and you should just ignore her comments.  I just don’t get people who care what a ring costs.  What matters most is that someone loves you enough to give you a ring and wants to spend their life with you.

Ok, from one sapphire girl to another, your ring is HAWT! My ring is under a carrot and still looks perfect for my hand. That chick is a materialistic-copy-cat-HATER! caught sippin’ on the Hateraid. Pay her no mind and start looking for another job. I can’t wait to either.

@jessyrez:  That is utter bullcrap. My fiance could have afforded a lot more than he spent on my ring but i capped it at 6K. Who cares how much it cost? It shouldn’t matter if he tied a peice of string around your finger. I would tell her to shove it.

My SIL told me that my husband should get me at least 1.5 carats because I have fat fingers.  So at least they didn’t insult you personally.  🙂

I work with a couple people like that – just ignore it.  If you aren’t happy with your own life you look for ways to make other people feel bad about theirs.

People who say hurtful comments are just jealous!! (I had a similar situation, people were calling me cheap because i have a sapphire halo ring and the bees made me realise the girl who was hurting me was just jealous, thannks bees!!) 


Your ring is absolutely stunning! If it is good enough for royalty it is good enough for anybody =] Don’t listen to the haters xx

first of all… your ring is GORGEOUS!  I love it….

second of all…. she’s just jealous and obviously jealous of you in many other ways.  she needs to grow up and live her own life.

and third… what is RHR?  I’m “newer” here and learning all the abbreviations, but for the life of me, I can’t figure that one out!  (sorry!)

@jessyrez:  I’m sorry but that is horrifically bad manner.  I would have told her so as well – your future husbands income is none of her business…nosey bitch!

@jessyrez:  She obviously appreciates your style – which you can take as a compliment – but is also extremely jealous and competetive with you, for whatever weirdo creeper reason. I love your e-ring.. Its beautiful, unique, and definitly stands out amongst a sea of diamond rings!  Don’t let that mean small minded girl get you down.


@orchidaloha:  The mindset of some people these days just blows me away. I know a few well-to-do people who would never flaunt thier financial status with over the top expensive name branded jewlry, or by buying a home that was too large for thier smallish family or whatever – because lets face it, there is nothing creepier than being alone in a house that is much too big for you, especially at night. 


But, as many as there are frugal and discreet wealthy-ish people, there are plenty of those who are not as frugal and totally rock those big fancy homes and 2+ diamond rings (as well as not so wealthy people who pay for those things with plastic Wink


Point is, you just can’t judge a book by its cover!

I suppose it would be inappropriate to hide a flask of rum in your desk and create a drinking game based on your coworker?

Your ring looks perfect on you. You don’t mess with perfection just to say you have something bigger.

Wow…just.  Wow.  Because the money he spends on you is an indicator of how much he loves you.  *eyeroll*


Your ring is lovely – it reminds me of Princess Di’s/Kate Middleton’s.  Gorgeous and classy!
