(Closed) Do you really care what others think of your er?

  • poll: Do you care what others think about your engagement ring?

    Yes, I care what others think about my ring.

    No, I don't care what others think about my er.

    I don't have a strong opinion either way.

    @Xu:  awww, the ring board and the dress board where people share their photos are why I come to this website. Show me some bling! If I don’t like it, I won’t say anything.

    I don’t mind the posts that start out “what do you think of my ring?”

    I think that some people  here ask for ideas in settings or in wedding rings to go with ER’s because they are looking for options, for ideas, and the people on the board know ER fashion.

    @juliana192:  I posted a “which ring?” thread between my two favourites more out of curiosity really, and I actually found that it helped me to realise that I did have a secret favourite in my heart of hearts. When people said “choose the solitaire!” it didn’t make me doubt my 3 stone; rather it made me think “aww but I love my baby!” So I got the 3 stone and it is perfect 🙂 In that sense I found the poll very useful! I think sometimes it’s good to get totally objective opinions – my friends IRL would never say a bad word about any of the options in case it’s the one I eventually chose.

    @chica95110:  no, I don’t care If someone dislikes it because I love it, but I do enjoy getting compliments on it

    I’d only ever post to show it off and not to ask if people like it or not. I roll my eyes when I see posts asking “which ring do you think I should I choose?”, “which ring do you like best?”, etc… Who cares what other people like? What about what you like??? Everyone is different and it’s down to personal choice whether or not people like a ring. I couldn’t give a hoot if people don’t like (or have a strong opinion of) my ring, it’s mine and I love it and that’s all that matters, not what others think. In saying that, it is very flattering when people compliment it, hehe 🙂

    Nope. If someone looks at my ring and decides they don’t like it, I can assure them: not a single fuck will be given.

    I cared when I first got my ring because I got a lot of “oh, it’s cute” comments and one girl I worked with even said it didn’t look like an engagement ring because it was so small. It’s a 0.3ct solitaire that was an heirloom. When I first joined the Bee, I posted a thread asking if my ring was boring because I was debating whether or not to have it reset. Now it’s paired with a sparkly wedding band and it’s even more beautiful. 🙂 I’ve decided not to care because I’m the one who has to wear it, not them!

    No. Don’t give a flying fig. I love my ring and that’s all that matters.

    I love my ring. It’s a 1/4 carat princess cut solitaire. I have tiny hands, so it looks plenty big on my finger. We didn’t go into debt over it, we paid cash. Would I like a bigger diamond? Maybe one day, like a 10 year anniversary or something. I still get giddy when I look down at my ring!

    my husband took me shopping for the ring many years ago.  At that time, his budget would have covered a 1 carat solitaire.  However, I don’t like diamonds, and I wanted a colored gemstone.  I chose a channel set black opal instead of the diamond.  I knew when I made the choice that my high school friends would be baffled by my decision.  Their reactions, most were confused or negative, didn’t bother me.
