Well you want opinions for the question “Is my ring to small for my finger?”

Although the ring is not my taste, no it doesnt look to small. I think it suits your finger well.

I can understand why some might think you are fishing for compliments because of how you phrased the question. “Is my ring too small for my finger?” Nobody will say: “yes, I think it’s too small” (even if they think so).That would be as rude as that girl who said it to you. I don’t think it’s an appropriate thing to say anyone’s ring is small. That’s just rude. I also understand that your insecurities make you want reasurrance. Nothing wrong with that. And no I don’t think your ring looks small on your finger.

@AllieBee12:  just because it’s a larger stone doesn’t automatically mean it’s bad quality… Undecided

Small is in the eye of the beholder.

@debbieotoole:  From what I remember in England, it was not custumary to get a huge friggin’ rock like in the U.S, so this suprizes me. Though I haven’t been in 10 or so years, things change. I think the person what just beig a jerk-face to you, and you should just blow it off.  Honestly, who says that? If you came up to me with a micro diamond, I would have the tact to say how pretty it is, never comment on the size of a diamond!

Just a thought… maybe the woman was being sarcastic? Who on Earth would consider a rock over 1 ct. “small” ?

@joya_aspera:  

I realize what is going on, really I do. I’m just surprised by some of the behaviour. I try to be kind to people, it’s who I am. But to have people run back and pick out posts to prove that she has relationship problems? That’s where I think the line should be drawn.

To those of you who disagree:

She simply asked for an opinion. I gave mine, it’s a lovely ring no matter where in the world she is. I would hate to think she is sitting behind her screen upset (in any way, shape or form) because some internet people are bullying her. We all say and do things to make us happy. Let her be happy.

@Arshim:  I do agree that people should have the right to an opinion, if asked. The operative phrase here is “if asked”. (she did not ask for relationship advice or guidance on what people think she should ask) 

I’m sorry, I just think bullying is very easy to identify and it breaks my heart.

Take care and be well.

I was not giving relationship advice I just think its weird she spends so much time and energy on a ring. Yes you have had 3 engagement rings. You said so yourself. I was not attacking you just simply stating take your energy and time spent about a materialistic object and put it towards your relationship. You could have the best relationship in the world I do not know. What I do know is you spend a lot of time and energy on a ring. it’s a piece of jewelry only you need to like. Who cares what others think about it. To be honest I get annoyed when people comment on my ring. They ask me why I wear it to work. My response is always its just a ring he bought it for me to wear right? I think your ring is great I just think there is a more deeply routed problem. Maybe insecurity or something I don’t know but if you put it on the internet its public and also if you ask for opinions you will get mixed reviews. When I first saw the post I thought she originally was asking about the ring size not the size of the diamond. Its all about perception  forums are like text you never know if someone is being mean or joking..

@debbieotoole:  I’m sorry but under no circumstances is it okay to call anyone, let alone a stranger, a ‘bitch’. You asked a question – you will get responses. LilMsMicro might have been sarcastic but she may not have also. That may be her honest opinion – that yes, she thinks you ring is too small. But the fact is it is her VALID answer to the question you asked. Sure, it may have sounded a bit sarcastic which I’m pretty sure was the aim and probably was not necessary but it’s infinitely more rude to call someone a ‘bitch’. 

OP, if you are so proud of your ring that any negative reactions towards it causes such a vehement repsonse from yourself, then my advice would be to cherish your ring for the lovely symbol that it is and refrain from asking for opinions on it or showing it to others on a public forum. There’s a 95% chance you will be told something unflattering at some point  and clearly, you are in no way receptive to this oppoing viewpoint.
