lavender9 : May I suggest a white lie? Next time they comment, simply laugh and respond saying your fiance wanted to buy a 2-4 carat ring (whatever would have been on the upper end of reasonably affordable) but you insisted on a smaller one due to you job/hobby/general clumsiness. Then change the subject.

anonymousbee001 : lmao it’s saud all the time, especially on these boards. I pay it no mind. I’m confidant in my own individuality abd choices and don’t deny others thier right to thier own opinion. I actually, typically have very unpopular taste, i rarely like what the majority likes and often like best what they hate. It only bothers me when things i like get discontinued that i wanted to be able to continue getting. That sucks. Beyond that, most people’s opinions mean squat to me. I do however find it highly amusing, while a bit bizarre, when someone who doesn’t even know me becomes distraught and overly invested in my opinion. Like why do you even care? 🤣🤷♀️

nykkee : Overreact much? You think too highly of yourself. I was simply making a matter-of-fact comment to add to the conversation: succinctly, your initial comment evinced more sour grapes 🍇 than cultivated taste. Given your garbled, stream of consciousness collection of run-on sentences, it seems to have hit a nerve.

I met my sister again and told her I was extremely unhappy with her comments. And also told her that I was the one who asked my Fiance not to get a large ring. Unfortunately there are quite a few snobs in our family but I have to learn to ignore them.
