i think she might be channeling her aggression to some of the comments she might have received from others over her beautiful sapphire ring

Her defensive nature makes me think maybe she wanted a diamond but got that instead so she feels the need to blatantly say that! Either that or she’s just a tactless, grumpy lady!

I find that literally amusing.  Why ARE people so petty?  I don’t get it. 

If it were me, I would have again complimented her ring, told her that it’s so pretty as I do really love sapphires, and that the future Queen of England also sports a lovely sapphire engagement ring.  And then ask her if she thought it was beautiful/get her to agree  that Kate M’s ring is gorgeous . 

Then I would have smiled at her and said “and it’s so great how WE just love how the beautiful DIAMONDS set off the blue in the sapphire.”

Everyone thinks their ring is better for various reasons… whether it’s a big diamond, small diamond, band, sapphire, etc etc… it seems like many brides are very vocal about their ring! It’s ok to love your ring, but you don’t have to dog other people’s rings. Boo!

I agree that she just might be defensive on any comment she gets on her ring-perhaps others have not been as supportive. I wear a peridot, as personally it means a great deal to me. I love it…but admittedly some people have been like “You didn’t get a Diamond?!” Still, agreed, given you were wearing a diamond she was WAY out of line.
