I think that sometimes people say things without realizing it will hurt the other person.
I wouldn’t think anything of it honestly.

I don’t think she intentionally meant to hurt you, but she implied that your ring is not as nice as hers, probably without realizing what she was really saying.

I would probably stew about it for a while and then get over it. You know your ring is awesome and that is all that matters. 🙂

I don’t know, that’s weird, I’d be reacting the same way you are.  It sounds like she was taking a dig at you for whatever reason.  I guess just try not to let it bother you, unless she keeps it up.

@nickels: That comment would have upset me/rubbed me the wrong way too.

Maybe she had a past experience with her hubby (when they were younger) where she told him about someone else’s ring and he felt bad after he saw it?

You aren’t wrong for feeling the way you do, but I wouldn’t bring it up/discuss it with her unless something like this happens again.

I think the way you responded was perfect and very mature.

Um… yea I think thats really weird. And kind of rude. But people are just weird about jewelry/money/whatever. I’d try to forget about it 🙂

That exchange is kind of weird. But don’t worry too much about it. Maybe she read too much into you gushing over her ring. She may have thought you were jealous or that your Fiance would be upset.

I don’t know that she really meant it to be offensive, but I think I would have been annoyed too. Some people just don’t fully think before they speak.

@nickels: Thanks and welcome!

I feel that way about the boards too. (Hence why I’ve got so many posts!!)

It doesn’t sound like an intentional dig.
