honeylamb:  I adore your ring! And what’s more, the story behind the diamonds is moving. I love it when people take a sentimental piece of history and include it in something as special as an engagement ring. Perhaps the lack of words from others is that they simply have no words to explain how lovely it is!

honeylamb:  I just took a look at your ring and it’s gorgeous. It looks great on you, it’s dainty and has a huge amount of sentimental value. But it doesn’t look like the typical engagement ring and it probably has less sparkle than a solitaire would. I’m assuming this is why people are reacting that way. It’s not an out there, sparkley in your face ring that many people seem to think engagement rings should be. It’s not worthy of a “it’s pretty”, it’s worthy of a “that’s beautiful!”.

I’m not generally a bezel or yellow gold fan (they are beautiful rings jsut not my style!), but my god, I literally LOVE your ring.. The band for one is so so delicate, the gold looks amazzzing with your skin tone, and the side stones with that gorgeous center stone is just stunning. I’m with some girlfriends right now and we all agreed that your ring is fabulous. I feel like what other posters have said hit it on the nail: the majority of people are not used to seeing bezel settings and yellow gold isn’t as popular now. With that being said, someone elses lack of excitement or opinion does NOT mean your ring is any less beautiful, unique, or less special. Don’t worry about others; you love it, and that’s what matters. But if it helps, we all love it as well; it is seriously a stunning ring. I love when people go for something different and rock the hell out of it. Don’t let others get you down, you have all our support on here

Most people were never taught (and apparently cannot figure out) any manners whatsoever. The ONLY proper reply when seeing someone’s engagement ring is, “It’s beautiful! Congratulations!” 

And while there have definitely been rings I didn’t necessarily feel that way about, yours actually IS beautiful. It isn’t even that unusual. The only explanation I can think of is that many people have never seen a bezel, because they are not commonly shown in mall (maul) jeweler’s cases. Even so, that is no excuse for not responding properly to your ring. 

Regardless of how people have responded to your ring, it IS beautiful, and there’s an even more beautiful history behind it. Wear it proudly. Next time someone has no comment or says nothing, fill in the silence with the details (tell them about why you chose a bezel setting or where the stones came from, or how the proposal happened, etc.), and be proud of your gorgeous ring!

honeylamb:  Most people have no originality or taste! Your ring is gorgeous (IMHO) but it’s not what they’re used to seeing. If you like it, really that is what matters. Maybe you should test the waters by asking someone after they ask to see it “What do you think? Different, huh?” And give them an opporunity to think about it a little more and realize that you want a reaction. 

I was surprised after i got my e-ring a lot of peopel didn’t even ask to see it. I feel like I always ask newly engaged girls to see the ring. But I am utterly obssessed with it and stare it all day long, so it’s their loss. Embrace that POV!

Your ring is gorgeous and unique!! I am shocked that people are responding like weirdos…seriously, what’s wrong with them? And I’m not just saying this to make you feel better. You love your ring and it has a very sweet story behind it. That’s all that matters.

I would love to drool over your ring in person. It says more about that person than your ring if they are so rude!

Your ring is beautiful.  5 pages of other Bees telling you so is enough for you to know that. 

How about this thought though:

People generally don’t care about your ring–unless it’s a copy of their dream ring.  I have seen this in action.  Two girls got engaged in my office; one has a simple solitaire and the other bedazzled in double halos.  The simple solitaire got congratulations and the love.  But people OOH’d and AAH’d at the double bezel.  Conclusion is that most women in my office like bling.

In short, you love it, and other people love it.  Sadly, not everyone will.

I went and had a look at your ring and in all honesty I thought it was going to be some gawdy hunk of rubbish, but it’s beautiful! I love it! Almost classic and trendy at the same time Love!

Look, I’m gonna be honest with you here.  I really don’t like bezels.  But I went and checked out your ring on your other thread, and it’s really pretty.  I love the way you have the diamonds set on the side.  I like how delicate the setting looks.  It’s different from any of the other bezels I’ve seen.  I think you should be proud of it.  Also, fuck them.  Enjoy your ring.

I just looked up your ring.

 

Honestly? It’s GORGEOUS. Classy, beautiful – just elegant. Maybe some folks are feeling a little petty jealousy? If a friend of mine was just given a ring like that, I’d be gushing over it. Can’t imagine why people are acting indifferent. It’s truly beautiful!

Your ring is beautiful, most importantly is it is beautiful to you. I love it when people stay off the well beaten path of “normalcy.”
