I don’t care what anyone says about my ring.  It’s what I wanted, and what my Fiance chose to give me although I would never have expected what I got.  All I asked for is that I got to wear my grandmother’s wedding ring, and that’s the only thing I cared about.

@Jabberwocky:  Brilliant.

My aunt told me my ring “obviously” isn’t an engagement ring because it’s a band, not a solitaire. Um…OK. Weirdo.

All rings deserve love. Why can’t we just live in ring peace?!?! ๐Ÿ˜‰

@Jabberwocky:  That was hilarious.  “You eat babies”.  I guess bc I have an asha with a diamond setting I guess I eat babies and am a faker.  LOL!

@honeybee1999:  Yeah it was my sister’s voice of reason in my haze of feeling PO’d at some point.  Funny part is that I don’t even remember what I was annoyed about, but I remember the comment from my big sis ๐Ÿ™‚

Gemstones were the prefered stone choice since the Victorian era. I think a gemstone can be as unique as the person wearing it. I vote blue sapphire, that is what I have.

@Jabberwocky:  Well said.

 

While gemstones are new on my engagement ring radar I think they are stunning and equally appropriate for an ering.

It would be so boring if all engagement rings were exactly the same. Gemstone rings are beautiful and stunningly unique!

Bless you, it must be frustrating. Mums rarely mean it badly so if she’s usually a good person I wouldn’t take it personally ๐Ÿ™‚ 

My mum is totally cool with my Moissanite. She regards all gemstones in the same category, it’s the metal she was worried about. “Sweetie your ring is lovely but…but will Platinum last? Will it go green in water? What about the Palladium in your wedding ring? I know you’re allergic to gold but would silver be better?”

Not only is it a marketing thing but it is also a location thing too. If you were here in the UK it is perfectly usual to have a gemstone ring!! Sapphires are particularly common following Princess Diana and now Kate wearing that beautiful ring!!

“As long as you’ll be happy with it and it’s what you really want, and as long as you aren’t choosing it because of affordability, then I’m happy for you.”

 This comment alone annoys me. Everyone assumes that a gemstone other than diamond means that you’re ‘cheaping’ out. My gemstone costs MORE per carat weight than a diamond so tell me how my Fiance is being cheap? This comment just sounds so passive aggressive.
