So something happened a few weeks ago that I didn’t know how to respond to.I have a very good size ring. I never asked for a certain size or anything. My fiance works really hard and is very good about saving his money. So when he went to purchase the ring, he bought what HE wanted to buy.
So an friend of mine wanted to check out my ring and she made a comment about the size. She also said “well my boyfriend isn’t rich, so I’ll never see that”. I was just shocked by that comment. I said “my fiance isn’t rich either”. I feel like I didn’t exactly respond like I should have. I was just speechless. I felt like I should have said something to defend my Fiance but I just didn’t know what to say.
When someone has made comment about your ring, what do you respond with?

If they say it is gorgeous/big/sparkly/wow/whatever… say “thank you”
If they say something disparaging about their own ring or their potential future ring say “your ring is/i’m sure your ring will be beautiful.”
done and done. 🙂

It sounds like she’s really just jealous, but not in the meanest way.
I would’ve said the same, “My fiance isn’t rich either…” and maybe added, “So I guess he’s been saving. Either way, I’m very excited for our future!”

@CorgiTales: & @DoxieDoll: Thanks, those are very helpful. I’m going to remember them for next time (hopefully it won’t happen again)

I’m sure your ring is so gorgeous she couldn’t help herself from being envious. I wouldn’t worry so much about what others think. People have to make snide comments about everything.
