jennmariee :  Or just don’t say anything! I don’t think babies are cute. It’s VERy rare that I do. So I just don’t utter a word. Say you’re happy for the couple and that’s it!

pinkcorsage :  Sounds like it! Well, you’re better off without that person! They’re probably so miserable that they tried to bring you down! Best wishes to you and yours! πŸ™‚

southerngal2016 :  Oh that’s a gorgeous ring! 

I’ve been given weird looks when they find out how big the stone is and I tell them it’s 3/4.  I’ve never gotten any harsh comments, most of them are “Well it’s not my style, but it’s very you.”I really don’t care what people think, I’m the one that has to wear it. πŸ˜›

nerk :  Thanks, hun! I appreciate that! Sometimes I just sit there at work and stare at it (especially when it wants to get my attention by sparkling like crazy………LOL!). I was in a meeting one day just staring at it and a co-worker asked me if she needed to take it from me and hide it! LOL!

My fiance keeps telling me he wants to upgrade it to a bigger and better quality diamond. I love it as is and said if it’s any bigger, it’ll snag on things and stab him even more than it already does! I believe the center stone is 1/4 carat and there are smaller stones on the sides for a total weight of close to 1/2 carat. It makes me smile and I’m happy with it! That’s all that matters! 

I’ve had people tell me that’s not their style of ring as well. One of my old friends bragged about how a guy bought her a 3.5 carat ring…….needless to say, the engagement ended a few months after that. Bigger isn’t always better! πŸ™‚

I must be living in a different universe.  I’ve had: a very small 3 stone, a quad, a morganite, and now a moissanite, and not a single rude or mean comment.  Guess I’m blessed 😊

A story from the other perspective – I once had dinner with BF’s (not newly) engaged friends who I’d never met before. About halfway through the meal the woman said “Oh, I didn’t show you my ring yet!” and held out her hand. I’ve never been very interested in jewelry and didn’t know how to react… it was very awkward! I was feeling very put on the spot and can’t remember what I said but I bet it was something like “oh… that’s nice….” that may have made her ruffle.

So far with my new ring I haven’t gotten anything to horrible . My mom is the only comment I can think of and she just was like well aren’t you a lucky girl your husband so does love you .. I think people who say these things just don’t understand they are being rude and most people are just jealous .. Everyone has different tastes and value set as well and the finances .. People just need to calm down and just love all the sparkles ! πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈ

cheezybrie :  Exactly, it’s on my hand, no my moms. She was worried about the message it would send… really?? I told her to buzz off. Then she came home one day from work saying, “did you know princess Diana had a sapphire engagement ring? That’s what you should tell people.” I was so disguisted! First off, who didn’t know that Princess Di had a sapphire (now that Kate has) and secondly, I do not need to justify my ring to anyone. Ugh!

mrshmc1204 :  I know, like no non-diamond can’t be expensive, right? My sapphire ering was more expensive than both of my sisters diamond erings!

My SIL said let me see your ring and when I showed her she  said ” ohh it looked bigger in pictures”. I was really excited bc I had the ring for only a day and when she said that I really wanted to lash out bc I feel she doesn’t realize the cost of a large diamond.

Rudest things I’ve heard are it’s very large oh it’s a cluster and is it real? What does it matter if it wasn’t! Hubby picked it because he knew I would love it. I have a daisy cluster and totally in love

The day I got engaged, I showed my sister and the first thing she said was my ring was for amateurs.

I don’t think these are mean comments, but more like unnecessary:

My FI”s best friend’s gf: “Oh, I thought he would get you something daintier like your other ring”

My best friend: “it looks like something from sailormoon”

Everyone that has asked to see it in person has said it’s beautiful/gorgeous/so pretty etc, but when I posted it on Facebook, only 2 people commented on the ring and the rest were just congrats, which I was a little surprised by. I find it doesn’t really photograph well, but in person, it’s so sparkly and has such beautiful detail on the profile which everyone looks at IRL. I couldn’t care less if anyone doesn’t like it because I picked it out and I LOVE it, I’m just glad that anyone who hasn’t liked it so far has had the decency not to say something rude to me about it!

My one friend said it sounded gaudy when I described it but says she thinks it’s beautiful now that she has seen it. And I sent my best friend a photo of it in the store when I first tried it on, and she said “that’s nice, what is the stone in the centre?” and I was like “..um…a diamond..” l always thought that was a really strange question.
