I had the opposite experience, but I can assure you it was not a good one either..!! here is why..

One of my best friends got engaged and got a round cut solitaire, beautiful ring, timeless, elegant and looks great on her too!! =)

The problem was her mum. When I got engaged she asked to see a picture of my Ering and my mum showed her and she was shocked!! She could’t believe how much more beautiful my ring was!!

So when I got back home and visit them she wanted to see the ring in person and she couldn’t stop complimenting it. Which is not a big problem you’d say, but what she was doing was comparing my ring to her daughter’s (my friend’s stone was a little smaller than my smallest stone in my trilogy) and she kept saying that my friend’s ring was … I don’t know the exact word in english, but something like “small and insignificant”…..O__O I felt terrible!!! so mortified and embarrassed!!!! she put me in a bad position and made me feel sooooo uncomfortable!! =((  it made me feel like I was bragging about my ring ( when I obviously wasn’t!!) I felt like I was competing with her daughter  and both me and my friend felt very uncomfortable.

yes, my ring is bigger, but it is not huuuuge or super fancy as her mother made it seem, and even if it was, that doesn’t mean anything!! I love my friend’s ring as well and I made sure that she knew that and that i did not agree with her mum’s opinion!!  Her mum was trying to make her feel bad saying that her Fiance was a “loser”  or not “good enough”, because he couldnt afford a better ring!!!

I totally disagree, she is with a GREAT guy, who loves her and worship her, they’re so in love and she is very lucky to be with him.. in my opinion a  good relationship is not defined by the size of your Ering stone!! so shame on you (my friend’s mum) for even thinking something like that!!

(I don’t have a pic of my fiend’s  ERing, but here is mine)

I often get, ” It’s SO sparkly!” and “He did such a good job!”. I also had a random stranger keep staring at my ring for a good 30 minutes while we were waiting to be seated at a restaurant. I have a 1 carat round brilliant, so it’s not like it’s a massive rock. Maybe she was staring because it’s so “sparkly”. It was just really strange. Fiance even noticed and said something to me later. He thought it was because she was jealous since she was much older than I am and her ring was nowhere as big or “sparkly” as mine.

We recently moved and made firends with the neigbhors.  They were offer one friday having drinks and chit chatting with the wife noticed my ering.  She immediately wanted to show me hers since she never wears it.  She had me follow her to her car and to her apartment but could not find it.  She panicked immediately told me to go back to the my apartment and to not tell her husband.  Ten minutes after I got to my apartment her husband asked where she was.  I had to say “I didn’t know”.  

Well, long story short he rushed out of the apartment to look for his wife and an hour later they both returned.  It really put a bummer on the night and frankly once they had left for so long I really didn’t see the point of returning. 

All of this because she had to prove she had a ring too.

I had my share of comments! All nice, but embarrassing or awkward. One time I was standing on the bus and a girl on the other side loudly gushed over how nice it was and asked if it was real (and the bus was PACKED: hence, why I was standing)

Another time I was paying for something and the lady helping me asked if it was real and went on about how nice it was

When my young niece first saw at a family gather she loudy said “HOLY MOLY uncle Mike, great job!” and then proceeded to point out how much bigger it was than her mothers and FI’s sister rings were…and they were sitting beside us

One day when I was bringing my cat to the vet the veternarian assistant saw it and was like “Hey, we both have halos….yours is much bigger though”

Latest one was when I was checking out at sobeys and the cashier saw it and was like “What a beautiful ring…very flashy and noticable”

 

So these were all positive comment, just awkward for me because I never know what to say, and I’m not a flashy look-at-my-ring type of person. I actually even started spinning it around so the diamonds are on the inside of my hand and it just looks like a plain bands from the top, just so people don’t comment on it

@valyintheworld:  I think your friend’s mom must really dislike her daughter’s Fiance for other reasons… nobody could really be that foolish to just be like that out of the blue, or at least I hope not.

I work as a receptionist, and there’s a credit card machine directly to my right, and a snotty, insecure, competitive receptionist on the other side of that. She’s constantly trying to out do me, and absolutely hates when anyone is even polite to me(she’s an absolute nightmare to work with). 

Anyway, all day long, I stand up and reach to the right to run a patients credit card, and as I’m waiting for the transaction, I always hold the patients receipt/billing slip in my left hand as I read the details off it. i get wonderful compliments multiple times a day from my patients, as its right in their line of vision. 

But, the best(?) part is, every time someone mentions it, the snotty girl rolls her eyes, makes a “psshhhttttt! sound and snorts And makes her distaste very obvious. It makes me so happy that someone simply complimenting me upsets her so much 🙂

When I got my rings I sent pictures to one of my best friends since she lives across the country. She showed an acquaintance of hers the pic since she got the message while they were talking and the girl said, “holy shit, did your friend marry a relic?!” (meaning an old rich guy). I don’t think she meant it as an insult, and considering my friend group is college-aged & most of our married friends went the route of getting an inexpensive ring to upgrade later, I can understand it but still think it was a tacky thing to say. Especially because I used to live in that town and I’m sure since I got married quick people are having allll sorts of interesting things to say lol.
