@SweetieP:  i sort of found this too. I have a simple solitaire and the reactions are fairly  subdued. I dont care because i love it, but still usually its “oh thats nice and classic!” blah blah. 

Still positive though! And within the last week i actually have had 2 compliments from strangers on my ring.  

So really, i dont care what others think. I know in 40 years i will still love my ring.

Uh… I like it when people say my ring is pretty. But, aside from that, I don’t really car what they think because it’s MY ring and *I* think it’s pretty.

@SweetieP:  My e-ring is a delicate claddagh with a sapphire center stone in the heart and a tiny diamond in the crown. My former boss’s reaction was “Oh, that’s it?” I wasn’t sure whether to be insulted or laugh out loud at her rudeness.

People have certain ideas in their mind about what an engagement ring is, or what they’d want, or what their best friend has… and sometimes they’re tacky and rude about it. Ignore it.

Just because the poster has a round doesn’t mean halos are dated.  I received my ring years ago when halos were not a trend.  I love the minimalist basket of the ring, and it looks perfect on my hand.  My dude designed it for me, and I’m going to rock it.  I get a lot of comments on the size since it’s modest.  I didn’t want a big rock, we went to Paris and Germany for two weeks instead of a bigger ring and it was amazing!

@SweetieP: not everyone is going to be excited over your ring.  It’s ok.  You are excited and that’s all that matters.  I would just take it in stride and be awesome.

I think I get what you are trying to say…for stay at home moms…or women in general…other peoples opinions don’t usually matter…I work in healthcare…and honest to God it is like freakin high school!!!  I find myself caring about other peoples opinions waaaay more often than I should…or that my friends do!  I am sure it is beautiful!  I have the same ring…just a blue diamond πŸ˜‰

Not to mention…many women get jealous of others rings…so they will NOT make a big deal about it…on purpose…  πŸ™‚

Have you considered that maybe you’re projecting your own feelings onto the people commenting on your ring?  Maybe you’re a little disappointed that you didn’t choose a halo and you’re reading that into the reaction of others.  The mind is a very powerful thing.  Just a thought.  πŸ™‚

@SweetieP:  Yea, i can see what you mean lol. I’m new to the city im in now so no close people to me to get a different response than “oh…pretty”. I am going home to visit for the first time since i got engaged last month in 2 weeks and will see all my family and friends that i’ve grown up around..maybe i’ll finally get some real excitement.

@SweetieP:  I’m sure your ring is beautiful! 

I think I know what you mean about the compliments.  I have a simple solitaire, too.  No extra bling or intricate band.   Yes, it is pretty and Darling Husband picked it up all himself but I’m sure whem my sister (she’s getting engaged soon!) gets her ring, the reactions are going to be much different than mine. (FYI.  I helped pick sis’s ring and everything so it’s going to be all dandy between us. Wink
