embarrassedbee: I would. Go over to her and be like. ” yep its a big ring for a big girl with a big heart and an amazing SO. ” while smiling and thanking her for noticing. That will get in her head.
PS. My set looks like snot and is ugly as hell. Coworkers comments

Jealous people can be so mean sometimes.
I had the opposite problem. When we got engaged we were poor college students, so there was no ring. My grandmother felt bad and gave my husband her engagement ring, that she could no longer get on her finger, because of arthritis. I always loved the ring, but the center stone is less than 1/4 carat – maybe 1/8th?. I was 5’9 and around 162 back then. You can not believe the number of comments I got from people about how small it was, in comparison. I could have smacked them on the head.
Don’t let people suck the joy out of your life.

This woman is clearly rude, but if it’s truly eating up at you observe her with other people. My guess is she’s just as rude to everyone else! Although that’s not acxceptable it’s a way for you to stop personalizing what she said.

mrspereira: You’re right! I’ve started watching how mean people behave with others and although I was angry that they were making everyone else feel rubbish, it stopped me feeling like their prime target, that it was something about ME that was triggering the problem.
If someone can say something that vile to OP with such ease then she must be doing it ALL THE TIME.

I cant believe someone would actually let words so hurtful flow from their lips.
What a BITCH, apparently she was never taught any manners. You learn what you live.

Either she’s totally clueless socially, or this was very intentional.
After that last talk, I would have called her out saying “Calling me “large” was rude and hurtful. Not only did you find it necessary to point out that I am “big” you also made the point that my ring “would” look impressive on a size 5, which as you were so kind to point out, I am not. I’ve racked my brain, but really can’t think of a single reason you’d speak to me like this. Have I offended you in some way?

embarrassedbee: She’s a jealous bitch. That’s the ONLY explanation. Actually the only other explanation is that she’s just completely socially ignorant. You know her – you can figure out which one.
Sorry OP that that pathetic IDIOT sucked the wind out of your sails. Sorry I just have zero tolerance for petty low people. Feel sorry for HER – not yourself. 🙂

Surely I’m not the only one who wants to see a picture of your lovely big ring?
Ignore the bitch, she’s totally not worth it.

I would probably not be able to resist telling her that you don’t mind her small comment, since you know it comes from a small brain.

I would be sharing that little nugget with the whoooole office. I wouldn’t hide how upset it made me either, not in a heavy way, just an “I wish I hadn’t let it get to me, but it just really floored me” kind of way.
I can’t imagine it will go down well.
Congraulations on you engagement Bee!

embarrassedbee: honestly don’t feel bad! She’s not going to lose sleep over it so why should you!
She obviously has no manners, is a rude cow or just too stupid to notice. Don’t talk to her again, leave it in the past and be excited about your future!
By The Way, any chance we could get a look at your ring?? I’m sure I’m not the only one here wanting a look at this pretty 🙂
