@gatorlovesturtle:  Don’t feel bad. My ring has my forever setting, but the stone isn’t “real” — it’s a CZ stand-in. That’s how I’d describe your ring, as a stand-in. Not fake. I personally believe it’s not possible to have a fake engagement ring without also having a fake engagement. An e-ring can be whatever you want it to be.

@gatorlovesturtle:  people hate on trivial things to feel better about whats wrong in their own relationships. your ring is more than quite a few have gotten from their mates. Some would  trade emotional distance or infidelity in a second for your ring. Keep beeing proud (not a typo)!

People are rude. I wish I had a snappy comeback to help you out with. How about “He’s working on another ring but he loved me so much he wanted to give me this one right away.” Or “FI wants me to wear a more expensive ring but I prefer this one.” 

You know what? Scrap those, because they’re giving in to people’s assumption that your ring is not enough when it totally is! How about you tell them to mind their own business?

Psh, whatever. Forget them.

All I have to say to the haters is… at least it’s on your finger and not still at the store!

Who cares? You love it, that’s all that matters! I really wish I hadn’t fallen in love with a $2500 moissy, if I found a ring I loved for $5 it would be mine in a heartbeat!

Honestly I think your proposal ring is beautiful. People who are too blind to see it’s beauty I feel sorry for. It shows that what’s important to them isn’t a wonderful partner to go through life with, and it isn’t even about a beautiful ring, to them it’s about status and materialism – how tragic for them that their life lacks so little meaning. I love big diamond rings, but I also love all stones, I love smaller stones, I love silver, gold, platinum, I love a lot! But I have perspective and can see things for what they really are, as you obviously can too. Congrats, you have a wondeful engagement ring and I’m sure your second will be just as lovely and special but in a different way to you and your SO.

People are petty! And you are absolutely right! The cost of the ring makes zero difference on how much a person loves another person! My mom and dad have been married for 40 years with nothing more then a plain wedding band! I have friend who forced her husband to spend large amounts of cash on a ring that she wore for maybe 3 years then ended up divorced! It is not and should never be about the size of the ring! Congrats on the engagment!

I’m shocked that people who are supposed to be your friends could be so rude. I actually really like your ring! It’s dainty, cute, unique AND something special to you. People are just jealous. Don’t let them get to you.
