On top of les’ point, maybe she just felt uncomfortable with talking to you about anything personal at that moment since you were the one conducting the interview. Interviews are usually a high stress situation and most people would consider the interviewer as someone ‘off limits’ at least during that process for that reason let alone that you are told when reading about preparing for an interview to be informative about your work experience but not too personal.

I totally had people ask me if my Engagement Ring was one… 0_o but DH works in the diamond industry and people assumed thats what i would get. Now that i am married and wear my wedding band i havent had anyone ask.

I’m not sure why you were offended I looked up your ring and I wouldn’t assume it was an engagement ring either. Now days people wear lots of different rings on different fingers and the average person doesn’t think engaged unless its a diamond with some kind of obvious solitaire. To me you could have easily gotten in on the conversation, but you chose to make it awkward. When you have a non traditional ring you shouldn’t expect others to react in a traditional manner towards it. You have embraced being different for a reason

My former e-ring (garnet in gold) wasn’t seen as an e-ring very muchly. I actually had a guy ask me out as I wore it! He was horribly embarrassed when I told him I was engaged. My new ring will look even less traditional. It’s just something I’ve got to prepare myself for.

People usually assume my ring’s an engagement ring. Part of that is because sapphires have grown rather popular in my area in recent years. It’s also similar enough to Kate Middleton’s ring that it’s not some mindblowing thing that it’s an engagement ring.
You might be reading too much into the recent incident. Another thing may be that pink sapphires are not as traditional as say, blue sapphires, rubies, or emeralds, so it might be unexpected as an engagement ring.

My guess is this has more to do with the fact that your co-worker is already married, not a snub that your ring doesn’t look like an e-ring. Personally, I would find it more helpful to ask for floral recommendations from someone who’s wedding has already happened, as they have seen the finished product. If I had reviewed some of my vendors before the wedding it would have been very different for some of them than after the wedding occurred. For instance, I would have giving a glowing review about the person that did my cake, because before the wedding she was amazing to work with, until the day of the wedding she did a 180 and made things as difficult as possible, and I would never recommend her to anyone.
