    No one has ever asked me where it’s from either.  If they did, I don’t think I would feel weird telling them which site we purchased from.  Fk em, it’s on my ring finger, not theirs.  Haters gonna hate.

    i voted Yes but i wouldnt let it bother me..my friends would question me and ask wouldnt you want to see the diamond first before hand what if its not what you expect it to be…true enough but I honestly would rather get a wholesale price rather then the retail price.

    No, not at all. Most people don’t even ask where it came from, and in the few situations where we have talked about it, getting it online wasn’t strange at all. But – my group is pretty tech savvy. Heck, I met Fiance online… so what is getting a ring online?!

    No one has asked me where my ring came from.  Even still, I wouldn’t be embarrassed to tell them.

    @babybee92:  Really?  The only stigma I associate with the Internet is that it’s AWESOME.  Online shopping is putting brick and mortars out of business.  I don’t think it’s far fetched at all that someone would purchase this type of jewelry online.

    No. I feel like anyone who knows anything about jewelry knows that you’re likely to get a much better quality diamond (and care about having a quality diamond) from a bluenile.com rather than Kay or Zales or whatever. And people that don’t know better? I really couldn’t care less about their opinion lol. I guess I could see why some people might feel judged if getting your ring from like, Tiffany, was the norm in your group— but most people I know got their rings from mall stores where I wouldn’t want a ring from anyways.

    @babybee92:  Someone once asked me how much he spent, which I kind of thought was rude, and although I had an idea, I just said, “oh i dont know!  I would never ask him such a thing!”  It kind of put her in her place I think and I didnt even really mean it that way.  Fi gets me things and I dont open it and automatically interrogate him about how much he spent.  I know if he couldnt afford it he wouldn’t have gotten it for me.  Same way I dont get him a present and tell him how much I spent on it right when he opens it! lol. 

    People probably ask you because they want one too!

    Only once. But in my head I was thinking “you wayyyyy overpaid, fool!” to the guy who asked.  He bought their rings at a notoriously overpriced place.

    I think it’s really odd (and actually kind of rude) for anyone except a close friend to even ask a question like that. If anyone did I would prob just give them a blank look and say “Why do you ask?” And if your close friends are judging you for where your ring came from, they’re jerks.
