Nope, I don’t care what anyone thinks. I’ve had a few unkind comments due to it being yellow gold, not white metal. I look at it every day and feel so happy and lucky and really that’s all that matters.

I’ve never come across a negative comment, and hopefully I never will!  I don’t think it would bother me for more than a fleeting moment, if that (just long enough to realize that the person I’m speaking with is acting like a turd because really, who says that!). 🙂

I only get irritated if someone feels the need to comment negatively on the fact that my ring isn’t a diamond- as if it means Fiance doesn’t care bout me enough or that our engagement isn’t real. 

Otherwise, I realize other people have different styles and they just aren’t going to like my ring, just as I don’t like some rings because it’s just not my style. Like PP said though, I’m always polite, because it’s just a difference in style, and that’s no reason to make someone feel bad bout their ring!

I’ve never had a bad comment about mine.

@MrsFuzzyFace: wow, I can’t believe someone would actually tell you that! (And for the record, I love mine, and nope, no one has ever said anything negative about it!)

Actually, I had someone day they didn’t like my ring. She said it wouldn’t go with everything was the reason. I of course said… “it goes with me”. That is what is important. He know’s green is my favorite color, and not emerald.

nope.  no one has said anything about my ring.  i don’t like it because i don’t like the shape and there are too many diamonds. 

when i wore a bigger ring, the only thing people could say was how big it was.  it started to bother me so i bought another ring that is smaller.

I dislike both diamonds and gold, but would never tell someone that I hated their “normal” looking ring.  I didn’t get an engagement ring, but a necklace instead. (I asked for it instead of another ring to wear on the same hand as a wedding ring, because two rings on one hand bugs me.)  People have been everything from thinking it’s beautiful to being confused because it’s too “untraditional”, but no one has said they hate it.  I’d shrug if they did. 🙂

No, doesn’t bother me. I know a girl that went on & on about marquise diamonds on facebook. About how she doesn’t like them & everyone gets them these days. I am sorry to burst your bubble miss but I don’t know anyone at all that has a marquise other than my mom! The only thing that would upset me is someone actually having the guts to say something like that to someones face about their ring!

I have a sapphire e-ring and i get lots of compliments but soon after the compliments, I get asked whether I helped pick out the ring. I can kind of tell by the way it’s asked that they’re basically asking whether my Fiance cheaped out on me with a sapphire or whether it was what I wanted.

ETA: Oh, and it WAS what I wanted!

@Lemma: yikes, how annoying!

for the question, it wouldn’t bother me unless it was my SO’s opinion. if HE doesn’t like the ring on me, then I’ll reconsider. for everyone else, I don’t care! I would be flattered if people actually liked my ring, of course, but I’m not wearing it for them. ;P

@patchy: Meh, it doesn’t actually bother me that much. At least they’re sneaky/polite about it.

The comments that ARE getting old are all the comparisons to Kate Middleton’s ring. My grandpa says “Sapphire, like that Kate Middleton!” every time my ring gets mentioned.

No it doesn’t bother me at all. I didn’t pick a conventional ring, so I didn’t care if people loved it. Rude comments just bother me because they are rude and unnecessary, not because I really put stock in other peeople’s opinion of my life choices so no need for the bubble wrap over here, in case anyone was concerned Smile
