    I’d probably be upset. If it was someone I didn’t really know, it wouldn’t bother me though.

    @HeartsandSparkles  hmm its pretty so I can appreciate wanting it too… like you, she saw somehting she liked and went and got it.

    I don’t think its all that strange – Its nice really!  She loved it that much!  

    Be proud that you have a pretty ring too and its still slightly different 🙂

    It’s weird, but I wouldn’t let it bother me…for long, anyway. But if you think of your aunt as someone who is always wanting attention, then I could see why it would bother you. I can’t really relate b/c I adore both of my aunts, and would think it was super cute that we had matching rings, and would probably take pictures of them together.

    @HeartsandSparkles  I would understand finding it weird if you had a really unique ring or something custom made, but your ring is a very classic, normal style.  I think it is a compliment that she likes the classic style of your ring and found it so beautiful that she wanted one.  I’d feel very complimented and not at all offended.

    I would personally be upset, but I probably wouldn’t say anything. Imitation is a compliment but an engagement ring is a piece of jewelry that represents the commitment you and your partner have. I feel that that is not okay, she should have asked you first. There is nothing really you can do about it now except be gracious. If she then goes and gets the same car as you or the same haircut…… Serious problem

    it wouldn’t bother me at all, really. i guess i might think it was a little strange depending on which aunt it was/my relationship with them lol
