NBee:  Not worth worrying over. Unless your ring is truly speshul, no one will notice that hers is almost just like yours. Most of our rings are not truly custom, noteworthy or unique. That they are special to us is what really matters. Joe Public doesn’t care.

I’d try hard not to feel smug about getting a bigger/better stone tha hers. Hey. I’m only human.

But too many times do we take friends’ feedback to heart about other stuff, rings wouldn’t be much different. Loved a movie? A Subaru or Toyota? A Mac or PC? A Whirpool or Kenmore? Great, I’ll look to one of those for my next purchase. You loved the customer service and costs of James Allen for the e-ring? Great, thanks for sharing their info.

Just my $0.02.

So he told your Fiance he didn’t like the ring he chose (why would any guy even say that? do guys even have opinions on rings? and how rude to criticize something as important as an enegagement ring)… and now he’s buying the same one for his FI? Yeah, he does sound lazy. But he’s not your Fiance so it shouldn’t bother you and clearly the girlfriend is probably aware of his laziness by now so… she probably won’t care either.

Are you asking if this would bother us if we were in your situation? Or hers? Of both, YOU should definitely not care. I’m sure there are a bunch of women with the same ring as me… they don’t have the same MAN and that’s all that matters to me.

It’s a little weird that you both would have the same ring, but you could be ring twins. If I were her I might feel a little disappointed that he didn’t look for something that reflected my personality, but like they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

I would feel weirder if I were her.

I would be a bit upset if I were you, but not much you can do about it now anyway.

Eh.. No fucks to be given by either party..

Surely she already knows her SO is lazy and unsentimental.

Nope, wouldn’t care in the least – unless maybe you have a highly unusual ring that is unlike any other rings around – which is highly unlikely.  I still wouldn’t care but she might but that’s not your problem.

NBee:  If I were you I wouldn’t care…but I would hope that his girlfriend REALLY did like the ring and wasn’t just being nice about it. You can say you like a ring and not want it to be the one on your finger.

NBee:  maybe he had absolutely no reference before as to what kind of ring she wanted. he saw her gush over yours and figured it was the safest possible bet.  it’s less risky than guessing. 

as for ring twins: nobody is going to really notice or care. 

mrs.akjp:  LOL, I was thinking the same exact thing!

Maybe after they left the dinner the girlfriend said “omg that’s the exact ring I would want! It’s perfect”.

sporkette:  I tell women all the time that their rings are very pretty. I completely mean it too! I love seeing women with fun shaped diamonds and unique rings. As for me…my dream ring would be a round solitaire which is as far from unique as you can get. I love all the different rings out there…they just aren’t what I want!
