lesbeeinlove :  Just look slightly surprised and say “Why do you ask?” If there’s a long awkward silence, let it linger. If they come back with “I just wondered is all” ask “Why do you wonder?” It won’t take long for them to realize what a tool they were to ask.

I say “I don’t know how much it cost”. And that ends the conversation. I get it all the time… I find it’s women I know who have a ring that someone can look up on a website that ask me, if I had a ring bought in a local jewelry store, anyone could find out by searching it, however since my husband designed my ring, no one knows. I heard from a friend a few women were trying to figure out the cost because they wanted to know if it was more than theres, even though my diamond is smaller but has a halo. Unreal that some people are so nosey that they ask such a private question lol.

When I see my cousins and friends who I grew up with at my Destination Wedding next year, I am sure the first thing they will ask me how much my ering cost. They will be very unimpressed to know that my ering only cost £350 when all their’s cost between $20-$25,000. However, my partner and I own more properties than anyone we know so I don’t need to justify my ering price to them. I’ld imagine my cousins and home friends ask this because they subconsciously link the value of the ring to how much your partner loves you (which to me is absolutely rubbish)

No one asked me. It is not their business. Easy answer- “Enough.”

I have never had anyone who is close to me and genuinely cares about me ask this question.  I think this is because they don’t care and they are very happy for me.  I have only had distant relatives or friends ask this.  I just assume they are either jealous/not happy for us or they want to make sure what they have is better.

yes! I have had that question asked. I say something like, “I’m guessing a lot.” and then I laugh. Pssh people are funny.

1judejude :  my cousins have always said to me that you should get the most expensive diamond your husband can afford. Don’t settle for anything less. No wonder I have always been the black sheep in my family 🙂

My answer is “I’ll forgive you for asking if you forgive me for not answering, OK?”.

I just say “I’m not sure, it was a gift.”

lesbeeinlove :  Ugh, people.  I don’t know what response they want, but I think a look of puzzled disgust should be enough.  Sometimes words aren’t necessary.

lesbeeinlove :  To quote a Seinfeld sitcom line I love, “We paid what it cost.” Hehe, that should shut that question down with a laugh.
