Meh. I wouldn’t be offended. Either she didn’t mean anything about it, or she sucks. If you love your ring, then your ring is awesome 🙂

There are worse things to be called than “cute”. It doesn’t seem like she meant anything by it.

I’ve heard cute from people before, and I think my ring is rather large on my finger. I think some people just use the word cute instead of pretty/beautiful/lovely/whathaveyou. 

Your ring sounds gorgeous, btw!

I’ve gotten “cute” too. At first I was like “oh…?” but I love my ring so I didn’t let it get to me.

Don’t be offended!Smile I say cute all the time, it’s just a word I use. I use it instead of pretty, beautiful…etc. I tell people their rings are cute all the time no matter how big or small they are.

I think at first I would be like “ugh, cute!?, what!?” but when you really think about it, cute is good too! I think your ring sounds gorgeous!

Sometimes I think that “cute” is passive aggressive, but in this case it sounds like she just likes your ring and felt like an explanation was needed as to why she noticed you weren’t wearing it (probably didn’t want to feel like a creeper lol).

@mg1363: Exactly! She obviously likes your ring because she looks for it and noticed it missing. I think she meant it in a nice way and would be embarrassed if she knew people take offense to it.

I had a friend say that about my ring which is a little bigger than a carat emerald cut solitaire is cute.  Kinda like this “Oh….its cute.” Sealed  But she is wearing a two carat center stone surrounded by another carat or so of diamonds that sits a good centimeter above her finger.  The center stone is cloudy.  Mine is perfect.  Some people thing size is everything.  I like quality but I was offended at first too.  As long as you love it, right?

I love mine and I even told my Fiance that I go for the “cute” factor when I look at rings.  I wanted a ring that would have a cute look to it.  Some people might think it is a good thing to call it cute.  It could be the setting that she finds cute.

If she noticed that you didn’t have it on then obviously it made an impression on her. Perhaps she had a bit of ring envy herself?

I use the word cute all the time, not necessary for jewelry but still it’s a generic word we through around and doesn’t necessarily imply anything negative. As long as you love your ring that is all that matters….there is always someone with one bigger and smaller so it’s silly to compare.

I really don’t like when people refer to anything wedding-y as cute. People have said I look “cute” in my wedding dress…not exactly the look I’m going for. However, like everyone else said, it’s just another acronym for pretty/lovely/great…that’s what I tell myself and you should too!

I wouldn’t be offended. I have a friend who calls EVERYTHING cute. It’s just her word. She called my wedding dress cute haha. It’s just one of those things that bugs me a little every once and awhile but I ignore it.
