so my fh proposed a week ago, and completely caught me off guard. He has been acting weird for awhile now, but more recently took me clothes shopping for plans he had weeks later, all I was told was it was a surprise… 🙂 well I like to know things and guessed we were having pictures taken, he smiled and I knew we were getting pictures – why else would he buy new clothes for me?
he took me to this outdoor place he loved to go as a kid and had hired a photographer to meet us there – it’s fall here, my favorite time of year and i was anxious to get pictures taken… While I was so focused on what and how to pose for pictures my fh grabbed my hand and pulled me toward him, got down on one knee pulled out my ring and asked me to marry him… While the photographer was getting it all on camera – I was very glad to have pictures of the moment.
So here is my ring – 1/3ct.
I am slightly disappointed though more recently I have had someone twice say how “cute” my ring is and “oh… I expected more from you…” It hurts to know not everyone can be happy and I did not think my ring was “to small” but the way they acted, especially while showing off their obviously bigger rings, was enough to make me feel like mine was not good enough. :/

Your ring is BEAUTIFUL ! ! And the story that goes along with it is fairytale <3 you have a very loving man and a warm future together.. THAT’S what matters. What matters is that he took the time to pick out a stunning ring that has the sentimentality to last you both a lifetime , and that YOU love it. I know words and expressions of family/friends can hurt. But that shittiness is on them, not you. ENJOY this time! BE HAPPY AND THANKFUL FOR THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE AND YOUR FUTURE TOGETHER <3

Congratulations!! It sounds like you are engaged to a thoughtful, kind, loving man who proposed with an absolutely beautiful ring! ❤️ I’m so sorry that other people have made you feel ‘less than’ with their thoughtless comments. Enjoy this moment! It’s yours and not theirs!

Congrats and your ring is beautiful. I have a small ring myself and I absolutely love it and would pick it over any big ring any day. When I showed my friend who had a rock 4 times bigger than mine (it was huge) she was complaining that her ring was too small and her FH must not love her as much. I felt like that was her way of making me feel bad about my ring but needless to say, they broke off their engagement while I am happily married. Moral of the story, Ring sizes don’t prove anything. It’s the love you share with eachother that is important.

Cute: attractive or endearing in a pretty way.
Don’t let the word “cute” bother you, many (most) people use that word in a positive way. Myself for example, I know for a fact that I’ve commented on many posts here saying how cute I thought something looks or would look, from rings to cupcakes to decorations, it’s just the word I use. If someone calls my ring cute I say “Thank you, I love it”. As for “I expected more from you” I would simply respond “what?” because that doesn’t even make sense. I want to say your ring is “super cute” because that’s my vocabulary…..but let me word it differently……your ring is gorgous and sparkly and not at all small, don’t listen to idiots.

People are assholes. ignore them and enjoy your engagement, beautiful ring, great memory of a terrific proposal, and lovely fiancé. (for what it’s worth I got the “cute” comment on my ring from my first marriage. It was a .88 Tiffany & Co. solitaire. one of the classiest rings I can think of. Wtf?)

Your ring is beautiful! DH proposed to me with a little vintage ring that belonged to his mom. Since then I have aquired other rings. Don’t let others ruin your happy

Congratulations on your engagement! 🙂 That story is beautiful! 🙂 Your ring is absolutely lovely and stunning, and represents that important moment in your life – what other people might feel about it does not matter in the slightest. Just enjoy this time in your life! My engagement ring is so small that most people do not even realize that I am engaged (if they don’t know me), but that does not matter to me at all 🙂

Congrats! And your ring is beautiful – very unique! I don’t know why people are always so focused on the size of the ring. They should just be happy for you that you are engaged and excited for you on your new journey! That’s what I always get excited about for people when they tell me they’re engaged and whatever ring they flash for me, I’m just so happy for them that they received such a precious gift from the person that loves them so much, no matter what size. So ignore those rude comments and ENJOY this wonderful time in your life! You’re getting married!!! 🙂

your ring is gorgeous and the proposal sounds perfect.
The ring I would love is nothing like anyone would expect an engagement ring to look like and it’s ‘cheap’. When I get it, I’m bracing myself for the weird looks and comments from people. But I will love it and it’s not the ring that’s important.
if you have a great man and you are happy together, don’t let other peoples thoughtless comments make you feel bad x

I agree with other posters I think the intial getting of the E ring can cause mixed emotions. We have to realize no matter how pretty our ring is people don’t really care what jewelry you have. They will also always have something to say. Also we always make the ring bigger in our mind so that can lead to disappointment. It really is beautiful the bee isn’t usually a good place to come to feel better about your ring there is always bigger here lol doesn’t necessarily mean better.
