A co-worker who I’ve known for like 10+ years told me I was becoming a “Stepford Wife” because my ring is “HUGE and expensive” and I never come into work without having my hair, make-up and nails done anymore.

Uhhh ok?  My ring is not huge, it was expensive but not as expensive as everyone would think it is, and I’ve ALWAYS made sure I at least have make-up on everyday, my hair is a day to day basis usually just straightening with a straightener, and I’ve always painted my nails.  I wanted to ask “Jealous much?”

When I was in college (I had a different ring at the time) a guy who had a crush on my told me he would buy me a bigger one….I didn’t know how to react so I just walked away. I loved that ring and there was nothing wrong with it, it was a beautiful emerald cut natural saphire.

@gemgirl6:  The thing is most people know I am a jewelers daughter, and they know I would not have anything fake. I just dont understand. Maybe it is the opposite, maybe they think it is small or too simple. IDK. lol

I don’t know how much this has to do with my ring specifically, more so the fact that I even had a ring.

A girl I know through mutual friends (we are merely acquantainces) saw my ring for the first time since I got engaged (she had heard about it through said mutual friends) and literally the only thing she says is, *takes my hand into hers to get a better look* “I HATE YOU!!!” She then walked away. Literally, not another word

Seeing as she is merely an acquantaince I thought it was quite funny that she acted so rude (didn’t even realize it – poor girl haha). I also have heard from mutual friends that this girl is obsessed with getting engaged – supposedly it wont be happening for a while. So I believe her comment was one out of jealousy – didn’t bother me because it doesn’t impact my happiness Smile

@mimi123:  beautiful ring and a really beautiful story!!!! it would be a real honor to wear such a lovely piece of family history. I would also take it as a compliment from FI’s family….you don’t hand over a heirloom piEce to just anyone!!!

I would put my engagement ring on my middle finger and flip off the bitch who made the nasty comment.

@cmsgirl:  Thank you–you are so right–I felt very welcomed into the family getting that ring. I had been nervous about being accepted into the family as they are Jewish and I am not, but I couldn’t have been more far off!

As for the friend, I didn’t respond to that comment in the moment, but the other friend who was with us cut her down for the comment. We’re not friends anymore but I miss her. It’s so weird sometimes how getting married ferrets people out of your life.

@NurseMandie:  Your ring is so nice–I like the way the outside bands wrap around it like that!

I live in Korea where 99% of the diamonds in E-rings are round brilliants.  I have a 1ct Radiant. When I visited a jewelry store in search of a matching wedding band, this sales woman was handling it like it came out of a gumball machine.  After “looking” through the loupe for a good 2 mins, she said “Cubic?  CZ?”  I was a bit offended and said “No, it’s a diamond.”  She then had the nerve to get out her diamond tester, and had a look of surprise when it tested positive!  I couldn’t help but have the smuggest smile on my face when I walked out.

@atreyu547:  I agree that there’s nothing wrong with smaller rings or smaller diamonds (in fact I often prefer them myself, more ladylike and elegant in general, IMO), I would make sure never to accidentally imply to a woman that her diamond in her engagement ring is “too small,” because many people associate diamond price with diamond size (there is a relationship, of course, but it’s neither the only nor most significant of the factors that determines price… however, it is the factor that an uninformed public most easily understands). And why does that matter? Because some people in our society try to make negative judgements on people soley on the price they assume an engagement ring cost, i.e., if it didn’t cost “enough.”

Since I would never want to give the impression that I think there’s anything wrong with a choice of a smaller diamond, I would never want to imply that “what I’m noticing about your ring is that the diamond is smaller than I had expected.” It’s just really not a message I want to even risk sending. So, no “cute” rings from me, unless it’s got Hello Kitty on it or something.

“Oh pretty. It’s not like a normal ring.”

???

So it’s abnormal? It’s a round piece of metal that fits on my finger. Those seem like pretty normal attributes for a ring!

It wasn’t a bad comment but it made me giggle. The lady at the wedding rental company saw my ring and exclaimed, “OMG you’re ring is gorgeous! It reminds me of the Eiffel Tower!” Hah, well I guess I never looked at it that way!
