BelleEtoile:  You’re right, it’s not for your wellbeing. It’s just painful to watch and it would appear that I am not the only person who feels this way.

On page 3, you distinctly said:

BelleEtoile:   I found out yesterday it is not infact a lab created diamond which I am upset by, I was not told the truth to by my fiance and you ladies do not need to remind me anymore, I am already quite aware of the situation.

But then Olivepepper handed you a ready-made possible explanation 2 posts later when she said:

Olivepepper:  I would be very angry at that uncle for misrepresenting the stone. I am sorry it came as a (nasty) surprise to you. 

You then switched to blaming it on your uncle. Come on now. You also specifically stated in this thread: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/wedding-ring-suggestions-that-go-with-my-solitare-e-ring/ that you did your research on lab-created diamonds and therefore knew the costs associated with that option and presumably would’ve realized that a 4 ct hasn’t been invented yet That is the thread where you said ‘I have a friend who works at Cartier who could have sworn my stone was a  D color flawless stone, and she was floored when I told her it was grown in a lab!!’. How is that possible??? How could an actual jeweler from Cartier not realize your ring was a sapphire and not a diamond??? Not to mention how a Cartier jeweler somehow didn’t know there is no such thing as a 4ct lab-grown diamond.

And it’s crazy for you to expect people to belive that your fiance somehow didn’t know what he was purchasing, especially given the tens of thousands of dollars difference between what he thought he was getting and what he actually got.

interchangeable:  I think this sums up how many of us are feeling! Thank you for putting all together!

There is a reason many posters believe you are full of baloney. That is because if it looks like baloney, smells like baloney and tastes like baloney then we can all logically conclude that it ain’t beef wellington. It’s pretty obviously baloney.

But instead of just fessing up or slinking away, you are determined to think we are all just too dumb to know the difference between beef wellington and baloney. Even though many of us have experienced both, in some quantity, in our lifetimes.

Quit feeding us baloney and telling us its beef wellington! Seriously. Give it up.

I think the saddest thing is that the Bee is, in general, very accepting of all stone types and ring choices. Why lie?

Sapphires are lovely , but if you knew your grandmother’s ring is a sapphire , why no correction or comment to all the PP who specifically called it a diamond as well as to the many others who quite obviously implied it was?

“That is one massive diamond !!! How lucky for you to have a piece of your grandmother and Great Grandmother !!! And someday you can pass it to your children !!!”

“She stated the original ring was from 1912 and the diamond was upgraded for the 25th anniversary”

“I’d consider selling one of your very large diamonds”

playdohpants:  Exactly. It’s sad to me that someone would want to invent a life she sees as *succesful* for a bunch of complete and utter strangers she’s never met and likely never will. although I guess that’s the point of inventing it with strnagers because you have less chance of being found out. But I will never understand what someone gets out of inventing an alternate reality and it’s really just very sad.

If you tell the truth, there is no need to keep track of all the lies. I heard this before and thought it was appropriate.

interchangeable:  I have a habit of doing that. I do like to think the best of people in general though.

In the end, only the OP knows the real story, the rest is just speculation.

I’m kind of late to the party here, but I’ve been on the Bee for almost two years now, and I’ve seen more than a few of these type threads where someone gets caught not being honest about a ring. All I can say is, I think most people here are more apt to have respect for someone who admits they lied and move on than one who digs the hole deeper.
