lovelytay:  Honestly, sisters get so used to speaking their mind they forget when to hold their tongue. I should know, I am one 😉

I’d just let it roll off your back. Some people always have something negative to say no matter what you choose.

lovelytay:  I went through something very similar with my oldest sister, she also helped raise me, so I respect her like no other person in the world.  When I told her that I loved halos for my engagement, right away she went on full campaign mode, lol.  Like full out “it’s not classic. It’s not gunna last. It’s just trendy” etc etc. She has a classic Tiffany & Co knife edge, six prong solitaire. It’s stunning and gorgeous.  It’s just not my style, I love it for her, but not for me.  

It was shell shocking to encounter resistance from my closest sister, she was practically aggressive when the trigger word halo was brought up. Once I realized she was doing this because she had the best of intentions and she only wanted what *she knew* was best for me. I was able to let it go. I just ended up avoiding setting her off with the topic of halos, hahaha. I could talk to her about anything and everything else.

Eventually I came to my decision and it was a halo that I couldn’t get out of my mind.  It was everything I was looking for: low setting, a Verragio, super sparkly and totally my funky style.  Once I got my ring, she was still the first person I showed pictures to. Once she saw the pictures, it’s like all her hulk mode disappeared – she was so happy for me. I’m sure if I ended up geting a purple ring pop, she would be just as happy for me.  

Whenever I spend time with her now, she finds moments to get excited over my engagement and my ring.  She even excitedly tells me how much she loves my ring style for me and how it fits perfectly with me.  I still do the exact same for her, her ring is so her. 

 Don’t let others dictate what you want to rock on your hand.  The cost of a ring can also alter or affect your lifestyle.  It’s for your hand only, nobody elses. All the best Bee!

I honestly don’t understand why people would tell you what is the best choice for you! My younger sister got a silver ring with cz, not expensive at all and i was happy for her, because she was happy and excited that she was marrying a man she truly loved. And i would never say anything to hurt her feelings and destroy her mood.  What makes a difference is your love, your relationship, your family, not the material of your ring. Rings are good addition to good relationship between two people, small thing to make your day better when you are sad, but not the thing that gives you ultimate happiness! I wish you to be happy no matter what people are saying about your engagement ring!

lovelytay:  haha I would always say my ring finger doesnt deserve a down payment for a car. I would just rather spend my money elsewhere and still have my dream ring. I dont touch the ethical debate threads on WB with a 10ft pole because honestly I dont care.   

I know you were expecting support from your sister but 99% of the time you want them to be brutaly honest and she was. Diamonds are drilled into our heads since we were kids and you here sim you think cz. You can always try to convince her on the stones merits or just get the ring let her think what she wants and then let her eat her own words when you tell her the truth.
