@Zhabeego:  Much better solution than mine ;o)   I’d still throw sarcasm in there…”That’s a funny way to say congratulations!!!”

I’m not a show-y person, I’ve never gone up to someone and shoved it in their face or anything, but when you get engaged, everyone wants to see.    I don’t know if it’s the class of people around me, or the average size, or that people just aren’t that shallow around here, but noone has ever said anything but ‘oh my god, It’s beautiful!!’.

I have a 1/2 carat center with two small baguettes, and I LOVE it.   It’s even a bit bigger than I had hoped for.   That being said, if anyone had the gall to say anything about it, I probably would have said something to the effect of ‘well it’s a good thing you’re not wearing it then, eh?’ and left it at that.

Some people have no filter guy >.<

A lot of people are rude which sucks but I have also seen a lot of threads on here where the comment wasn’t meant to be rude but just wasn’t what they wanted to hear and they got offended. I think on WB we get used to people ooh-ing and ahh-ing over e-rings but in person usually reactions aren’t as extreme (at least in my experience – maybe for other social circles it’s different ๐Ÿ™‚

I totally agree! I really admire some of these women who have had rude things said to them in person and they handled it with grace. I really don’t know if I would be able to. I haven’t had anyone be rude about my wedding ring (to my face anyway) so I’ve been lucky in that regard!

I can’t imagine intentionally offending someone, but I did it by accident once!

A girl I used to work with came in on Thursday with her new e-ring! It was about .1-.2cts, and a 3 stone. I thought it was lovely and understated! So I said “It’s so elegant!”

She did not take it in the complimentary nature in which it was intended.

Then I got engaged that Friday. And came in on Tuesday (long weekend) with my MASSIVE 1ct center and channel-set stones in the band!

And she looked SERIOUSLY angry.

@krayzay87:  LOL I am totally stealing that response!  

We went ring shopping for the first time yesterday (EEEEE!!!!) and we both fell in love with an expensive (for our small budget) setting. Which mean a small stone to compensate.  If he gets exactly what we were admiring yesterday, it’s actually a little bit out of budget.  With a center stone of .37, it was gorgeous and I really hope he gets it, but I can already hear the rude comments about big enough, expensive enough etc.  How about you shut your mouth enough?

@mrspinesol:  Mine is a pink sapphire and I just started telling people straight up it was a pink sapphire (I was getting tired of being asked if it was a pink diamond). You’d be amazed at how people kind of dismiss your ring when they see it’s not a diamond.

I think everyone gets something rude said about their ring regardless. Too big, too small, to much this, not enough that. Yadda yadda yadda. Honestly, after you’ve been engaged for a while basically no one says anything to you. I wish I had said what a PP said about “that’s a funny way to say congratulations”. That would have come in handy a few times. ๐Ÿ˜› But, honestly, no one has said a word about my ring in a long time.

@krayzay87:  Someone made a rude comment a few weeks ago about my 3+ ct old mine cut center stone e-ring.  It took a huge force of will power for me *not* to say anything.  Ugh.

This weekend was my college homecoming and the first time I’ve seen a lot of people since my engagement. No rude comments, but I don’t like when people try to guess the specifications of my ring. It’s super embarrassing when someone guesses too high “omg what is that? Like 3 carats?” Uh..close but not really, thanks for making me sound like a douche when I correct you. It makes me sound fake modest to say “no, it’s only 2 point blah blah blah” Or one of my old tennis teammates is ring shopping for his gf and he looks at my incredibly eye-clean stone and says, “oh that’s a VS2″…my response “uh..no, it’s actually VS1?”  Awesome. I’m still a douche, but when the hell did your eye become a loupe with 10x magnification? I got a ton of really nice compliments to go along with everyone’s well wishes but wtf at the street gem connoisseurs out here!
