People are dumb.

Don’t let it get you down!

I had a stone that was less than .25 carats for my first marriage.  And I had a couple of people ask me that, too.  I just said, it sure is!  it’s a promise that our wedding in March will be awesome.

Usually shut them up πŸ˜‰ 

Good luck!

Brush it off doll.  I’m sure you’re ring is gorgeous!!  She was just being a d*ck…and yes, some people absolutely do not think before they speak.

I’m sorry you had this experience. I know plenty plenty plenty of women with 1/5, 1/4, 1/3 & 1/2 carat rings & some even under, like .15 or .10 its whatever the wearer loves & that’s all that matters. People expect bigger stones sometimes because maybe they expect to be given a bigger stone, but don’t let that get you down. Not everyone wants a bigger stone, I didn’t! & I’m sure your ring is gorgeous!!!!!! πŸ™‚ But you know maybe she just asked because she hadn’t heard of your engagement & though if you was engaged she would have heard? Once you wear your wedding band with it I’m sure that will never happen again. My ring is 1/5th carat marquise. & I actually picked it over a .50 princess cut! Hubby was surprised I’m sure! LOL I don’t think it looks like a promise ring at all & I wouldn’t ever ask someone if it was a promise ring no matter how “small.” Anytime I see someone post a new pic on facebook of a ring on their wedding finger I ask if someone is hearing wedding bells in the near future? lol Here is my 1/5th carat marquise precious on a white gold band & my 4mm plain white gold wedding band. πŸ™‚

My engagement ring by its self:

I was asked that the other day too, mine is not small but it is a sapphire.

I just shrugged it off, all is good.

Sometimes size doesn’t matter… Someone looked at my ring and asked “Is that really your engagement ring?” WTF is that supposed to mean? lol. To top it off they had a disgusted look on their face… =S

Oh wow. People have no idea what they’re saying and how it makes others feel!

I’m so sorry πŸ™ don’t let it make you feel any different about your e-ring! If you love it, that’s all that matters!
