Respond with, “Actually no, it’s MY ring.” It’s stunning!

So pretty!! I can’t imagine someone asking you if you were Princess Diana, I would literally just crack up because that person is a nut.  I can see you getting the Will and Kate comment though, maybe say something like… well we both have excellent taste! or something like that, if it was me personally I would just smile and change the subject.

What is the ring’s history, if you don’t mind me asking? If it’s vintage, it may just be a great opportunity to tell the asker what makes your ring so special (while also correcting them).

I see the similarity, I suppose, but quite honestly, I would never look at that ring and think it looks like Kate’s.   Just because it’s blue doesn’t make it the same.

First off, gorgeous ring.  I wouldn’t feel self-conscious about it all.

And for the come-back reply, I’d make some sort of “fun” comment that acknowledges the similarity… something along the lines of…

YES, my Fiance thinks I am a Princess too

YES, my Fiance is a Prince

YES, my Fiance considers me his Queen

YES, my Fiance treats me like royalty…

You think this is great… you should see our castle !!

 

PS… Sorry, I don’t get your reference to “I inadvertently chose a Will & Kate E-ring”.  Not sure how you couldn’t have realized that when you made the choice… that there is a similarity and that comments might ensue… as the Diana ring (now known as the Will & Kate ring) is truly is the MOST FAMOUS piece of jewellery in the last 35 Years (prior to that it would have been the Taylor-Burton Diamond in 1969 = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taylor-Burton_Diamond … and lol, I’m saving up to acquire that one sometime in the future myself *wink* )

“Call me the Duchess!” then I would laugh and say it wasn’t intentional.

First off, stunning ring!

I’d probably pull a statistic like “Actually this one is about 100 years older than hers! Don’t you just love the color?”

or

“I just went with what I loved!”

@KatyElle:  “Actually this one is about 100 years older than hers! Don’t you just love the color?”

Exactly… it’s an antique and I guess people from way back then thought that it was a good idea to match blue gems with diamonds all around… gee

I’d probably say ” Why yes, I AM Princess Diana” but that’s just me : D

Everything about your ring is just so gorgeous! I think I’d just respond with, “Yes, it’s an antique, classic setting. It is so perfect for me”.

For what it’s worth, my ering has a sapphire center stone with two side diamonds and I get the “just like Princess Diana/Kate” comment simply because it’s a sapphire.
