Do you LOVE the ring?

I wouldn’t worry about it at all. A ton of rings look similar and you even have different stone types. You should not feel awkward at all, you have a beautiful ring and someone who is made for small similarities would be ridiculous.

If you found it by creeping on Facebook then you obviously didn’t know she had that ring when you picked out yours, so there’s no real problem. Plus, I think the differences in metal and stone shape are enough to set them apart.

 

All that matters is that you love your ring and how special it is to you!

i would just play it off like i never saw it on fb. when she asks to see it, she’ll probably be like “whoa, that looks a lot like mine!” and then you just be like “oh really? no way! we chose mine at Jared’s, where did you get yours?” etc etc… it’s just a coincidence after all. :]

It sounds to me like they look pretty different, so I wouldn’t feel awkward. I don’t think anyone else would notice! I don’t even know by this description how they can be the same ring. . .

I think the gold/white gold and cushion/round make your ring different enough. Also, 4 years have passed so she may not care all that much. As long as you love your ring, that is what matters.

@Kant: If you LOVE your ring why should it matter?

 

If she says anything just say something about having good taste

Out of curiosity, what is the ring? Do you have a link to a picture of it on the Jared’s site?

I think you’re completely overthinking it.  I’d love to see a picture so I can see what it really looks like.  There are some differences between the rings and the color of the gold is different.  She’ll probably notice that it’s similiar, but I highly doubt she’d take out a magnifying glass and start grilling you.  Jared is a very common place, and if it was me I’d be happy that a family member considered my style so beautiful that they subconsciously wanted something similiar.  Be happy with the ring and let it go.  It would be different if it was your sister and there was some sibling rivarly drama or something…a couple is different.

Yeah, let the awkward go. For one, it sounds like there’s enough differences that you’re obviously not trying to copy her, and also… imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!

Not the same thing at all, but when we’d been dating for a few months, Fiance got new glasses and I kind of choked when I saw them–he’d gotten the men’s version of my frames and didn’t realize it at all. Things like that are just odd, and even if you’re not close with her, I’m sure it’ll just be funny.
