(Closed) Do other bees negative opinions about e-rings (like yours) upset you?

posted 4 years ago in Rings
  • poll: Do you get upset if another bee says something that could be taken as criticism on your e-ring?

    Yes, I get sad/angry, so I say something just as hurtful back!

    No, I don't care at all. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I know what I like.

    A little. But the negative thoughts gets "stuck" deep inside, and I think about them often.

    Negative comments on Weddingbee have affected my ring choice!

    Yes, and I let them know that it hurt me!

    I have cried because of what someone said on weddingbee.

    Comments on weddingbee have changed the way I look at my own ring! (In a negative way!)

    I am ashamed of showing my ring on weddingbee.

    I just laugh at criticism!

    We can’t all like the same things. I love my ring, and that’s all that matters.

    I take comments in the spirit they were made, just like dress posts. 

    For example, I think mermaid wedding dresses are absolutely awful looking on everyone. I can say that here, and even if people in this thread have a mermaid dress, they can just eyeroll me and move on. 

    But if someone made a “I said yes to this dress and bought it!” thread and I wrote on it that her mermaid dress was hideous…that’s extremely nasty. 

    Generic comments are fine…but straight out “I hate your specific ring/dress/decor/photo/face” is pretty awful and would hurt my feelings if it was directed at me.

    Does it bother me? Nope. I have different diamond tastes than the average bear, and the only thing that ‘bothers’ me is when people thinking $$$ = quality. So i spend time trying to educate people on that.

    I’m totally one of the people who is vocal about disliking invisible set rings and simulants passed off as diamonds, however I only usually do it where people are soliciting advice. “what do you prefer, diamonds or simulants” “What do you think of cluster rings” etc. So yes, there are dissenting opinions.

    eta – you could say the same thing about anything wedding related. IE the garter toss thread, or when people ‘hate’ on burlap or mason jars haha. If it’s what you like, then great.

    To actually answer: No, I can’t begin to get upset over something like that. We all like different things. So many people dislike yellow gold &/or stepcuts. My own mom didn’t like anything but rounds in white metal. *shrugs* that’s life.

    I’m getting a ring with a halo. We know how much EVERYONE loves halos. 

    Not everyone will agree. That’s okay. I would never go into a ring thread think how ugly it is and comment about it. I will give my opinion if it is asked. But even then, you can say “hey, it’s not my thing, but are you happy?”

    Not at all. I knew what I wanted before I ever found this site, and I am still confident in my choice. It is the right ring for me, and it doesn’t have to be the right ring for anyone else. However, while I will comment on generalized threads with honesty (like “What do you think of this kind of ring?”), I will not say anything negative when a poster is simply showing their ring. If someone has posted their ring, saying something negative (when they haven’t asked for reviews) is just uncalled for and rude, IMO.

    Having a preference isn’t a hurtful thing. Everyone likes certain styles better. No biggie. But I do cringe a little when it’s worded in a way that might make those bees feel bad. 

    trying to make someone feel bad about their choice is crappy, no matter what the reason- and I’ve seen that on the high end and the low end.

    Everyone is different, if we were all the same, then there would not be so many beautiful rings…

    Except maybe there would because I love shiny things!
    I would look daft wearing them all! I love all rings because they are shiny and awesome.

    My ring is mine and my precious…..

    The only thing that really bothers me is when bees get all high and mighty about their diamonds and bash anything other than a diamond as “fake”. Um, no, I chose Moissanite for very specific reasons, thankyouverymuch. Doesn’t mean we didn’t have money for a diamond or otherwise.

    As for the style of my ring, I LOVE it. I don’t care what anyone else thinks, but it does make me smile when people love it just as much as I do. 🙂
