So, I was at my friends bridal shower a few months ago and one of her friends XXX was wearing a very pretty emerald cut, three stone diamond ring. I went over to her and said, “your ring is so pretty,” at which point she commented and said, “thanks its a family heirloom.”
Fast forward 4 months later and I am at my friends house talking about e-rings and very excited that my bf just bought mine! She told me that her e-ring was lab created through Nexis Diamonds and I asked her how she heard about the company she said XXX told her about it because she bought her emerald cut ring there first.
I was shocked bc the girl lied to me so I told my friend who responded with “oh yea, she lies all the time about her ring, sometimes she’ll say she inherited it, sometimes she’ll tell people its a 2 carat etc etc etc”
SO, I ask you ladies- have you ever had an experience where you found out after the fact that someone was lying to you about their e-ring? Why the hell would someone offer excess information about their ring as a lie if I never asked in the first place!? It’s not like I even have my e-ring yet!
*I am not offended by her and would never say anything about the ring too her obviously! But I am writing this thread just to spur a conversation if anybody has had anything like this happen to them.

That’s awful! Why would you do that??? Sounds like she’s embarrassed by her ring, how horrid

It’s silly that she feels the need to do that, but I wouldn’t call her on it. Clearly she’s insecure and feels the need to lie about her ring. I’d forget about it and focus on how exciting it is that you’re getting your ring soon.

She is probably sensitive about the origins of her ring and offers that before anyone can ask where he bought it. I would let it go and not consider it a slight towards you.

That’s really wierd. I’m not sure if anyone has ever lied to me about their ring. Honestly if they feel the need to lie, maybe it’s an insecurity. It’s not hurting anyone so I wouldn’t say anything to embarrass her.

I don’t think it’s that big a deal. It’s a little odd that she wouldn’t stick to the same story for everyone, but whatevs. No skin off your back.

She’s insecure about what people may think about her behind her back if she tells them it’s a Nexus Lab created stone….as if anyone would give a hoot. I’d just smile and nod and silently feel kinda bad for her ways of thinking.

While it’s nobody’s business where anyone’s ring’s from, if you go the sim route, if you don’t feel confident about your decision, then you should probably choose something else. I find the need to lie about it just odd.

Eh, some people are just insecure and tell wild stories about things to impress others. Honestly, I wouldn’t let it bother you or mention it – it’s bad enough she feels the need to lie, and she really isn’t hurting anyone but herself in the long run.

I’ve personally never run into anyone who’s lied about their e-ring, no. Maybe she’s insecure about it, or maybe she likes being “mysterious”? Who knows! I wouldn’t mention it, either.

To be honest, I do get offended when anyone asks about my ring (cut, where they got it, how much Fiance paid, etc.). It is none of your business. And she may feel pressure to lie about it since those are, oddly enough, common questions.

Well… obviously you guys are gossiping about her ring anyway, so can you perhaps see why she’d do it? It’s no one’s business.

@KatyElle: Who is gossiping about her ring? If anything it is just her behavior, the ring is still very pretty!
ALso, I would never say anything to her about it, I am not insulted because I know she tells other people the same thing, I just find it bizarre and was curious to know if anyone had a similar experience with someone.

@ohmybears48: Why would you be upset if someone asks about the cut of your ring? I’d be pissed if someone asked me how much Fiance paid tho- I’ve been asked that AND been asked how many carats it was. Rude. Ppl ask all the time where he got it b/c it’s handmade and the goldsmith’s work is recognized in this town so I see that as a compliment. But I never understood where strangers get off asking how much rings cost.

@Kant: Heh. Yes, she is not a very good liar, anyway. 🙂
