    I’m sorry…can you elaborate a little more on your story. I’ve seen your ring and it’s gorgeous, but I am not sure I get the story. Lol. Probably because I would never be confused with YOUR ring… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’ve had tourists comment on my ring, “So is that an engagement ring or…” Its not a typical engagement ring I guess. Very modest and the diamond looks small because of the wider band. (Maybe they were used to seeing HUGE diamonds)!!

    Whatevs! I love my ring, its me ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Jaxxmom:  Ooooooh I see. Awww I’m sorry ๐Ÿ™ Your pink sapphire (that’s what it is, right?) is gorgeous. I wouldn’t mistaken it for anything else. Well, I am about to be in your boat. I have decided on a ruby engagement ring and the reactions I get from people when I even tell them is…..kinda rude. LOL. Oh well. Your ring is beautiful, and it sucks you experienced that ๐Ÿ™

    Thanks for clearing that up for me. I can be a little slow sometimes. Hehe

    well that’s no fun. I think the issue here is that aring on your left hand doesn’t necessarily always mean engaged/married to a lot of people. I had a few friends that refused to wear their everyday rings (ie rings they got from parents or heirlooms) on their right hand. I do hate that people assume that if it isn’t a diamond then you’re not engaged/married. But here’s the main takeaway, does it really matter what they think? Nah. In this case it’s her loss for being so quick to make an assumption (or maybe she legitimately did not see your ring!)

    I had another thought – perhaps because you were only wearing one ring, she figured the coworker with the two bands (obviously already married) would be better to ask. She may have assumed you hadn’t got that far in planning yet so it was better to ask the already married one.

    Most new people I meet tend to dig to get an answer out of me before they ask if I am engaged/married.

    Ther conversation usually goes… oh nice ring, what kind of stone is that? It is silver?

    Then I answer and just say it’s my e-ring.

    @Jaxxmom:  I’m going to be honest: when I see a gemstone engagement ring with no band, I assume the wearer is engaged, but I never bring it up in convo, just to be safe. Kind of like I never ask a woman about her pregnancy before knowing 100% she’s pregnant. I think PP’s right, the woman probably just went for the sure thing, and assumed you’d chime in if you were engaged. Since you didn’t, she probably just assumed you weren’t.
