@futuremrskgt:  I think yours and mine don’t really count as “funny”, they count as “rude things people say about your ring”.

@Ms_Midori:  Definitely! I literally laughed out loud and it made her squirm, which was quite pleasing to me considering the comment she had just made 🙂

@futuremrskgt:  You’re really a better person than I am Laughing. I really don’t know what I would have done…probably walk away in mid-convo.

A co-worker told me, “I think your ring is stunning…and I don’t even like jewelry.”

Whenever I work with a particular co-worker, who is a few years younger than me, always just swiftly grabs my hand and says “your ring is seriously blinged out!”, ..lol …it’s just the way that she says it that makes me laugh.

On a plane last week the guy sitting next to me (in his 60’s) goes, “Whoa! That’s some ring! What’s that? – 2 carats?” I was really taken aback because I haven’t had a man comment on my ring before and because it is about 2 carats so I was surprised at his knowledge!

BetterSherm:  That’s pretty mean.  Even if I am not particularly fond about the style of someone’s ring (that’s never about size, By The Way….everyone just has different taste on styles), I always say something nice about it.  We all have different tastes (and budgets)….

My mother asked to see it a few months ago ( we had been married 4 months at that point and I had been wearing the ring for a year and a half before that and shes seen it a ton of times) and she said ” oh! its not as small as I thought!”  -.- I love my ring, and the style and the diamonds. Shes an odd one..

My stepmom refuses to comment on it….but only after she found out my center stone is technically larger (though her set has a higher total weight). *sigh* Literally – “Oh it’s nice – what size is the diamond?” “Like 0.8 carats or something?” “..oh. well.” *walks away* Well then.

My grandmas are always asking to see it and commenting on the sparkle, which does make me happy. 🙂

 

The rudest comment? From a coworker I see occasionally. I was talking to a coworker I’m close friends with, and she walked up, said congrats and in the same breath: “So it’s a gemstone? *sneer*” “No, actually it’s a blue diamond! 🙂 ” *she looks at it* “So are you sure he’s not lying to you and just telling you it’s a diamond when it’s not?” Uh, thanks, I guess?

I had a fake ering until the fiance found one he liked (and then caved to pressure and insisted I help pick haha) and had this gorgeous elderly lady come in to work and ask me all about it. I switched jobs, and she came in shortly after we’d bought the real thing, and she came up to me all excited and asked if I had the “real one yet” and I showed her and she proceeded to ooh and ahh over it for a good 5 minutes haha! <br /><br />I also get asked if it’s real a lot. I don’t dress up (picture denim shorts, singlet and flip flops and I have a very young face, so if I’m not dressed or made up I cna look about 15!) and one particular trip to the jewellers to buy a RHR for my engagement party, the assisstant kept giving me these big gaudy pieces, and I mentioned I had to be careful about choosing because it can make my ering look fake, and the jeweller, completely shocked, askes “IS IT REAL?!” I was like, ummm yes. And it’s not even that big!

A coworker walked by my desk and literally fake fell over and shielded his eyes and said “That’s blinding, its a health and safety hazard!”. It is NOT that big or sparkly but I died laughing.

claireos:  This might be a little late but I have a split shank with a halo as well!!! Mine is with a cushion moissanite center. I think your ring is gorgeous!
