Thanks ladies. My cousin is 19 and normally really sweet. I guess part of the reason why she said it is cause she knows about the fiasco with my ring in the first place. My dream ring was a radiant in a dainty halo, 2nd choice was radiant in a rose gold pave band, with a a matching white gold pave wedding ring to get the two-tone look (I wear all three tones of gold regularly), so I think maybe she just thinks my Darling Husband was a jerk in pushing his choice or something and that I ended up with a ring that’s “not me”.
It’s true, I was not a solitaire girl, but I am trying to make the best of an emotional and bad situation with my ring and I was SO happy with the reset! In a, it’s not what I wanted but at least now I like it, kind of way.

Personally, I would never take fashion advice from a teenager. When I look back at the choices I made as a teen, I CRINGE. Teens like of-the-moment fads, and rarely appreciate timeless beauty.
Your set is fantastic – please don’t listen to her.

Teenagers are just mean, and trendy to a fault.
I’m in my 20s and I think your set is gorgeous, and I want rose gold for myself as well. It’s beautiful!

Never take jewellery or music advice from a teenager.

MrsAAA: your ring is classic and beautiful, and besides as long as you love it, that is all that matters 🙂

I think rose gold/yellow gold actually is becoming trendy, and I am guessing we’ll be seeing tons more of it in the next few years. Your rings are lovely, don’t let a teenager get you down!

I think it looks beautiful. Do not worry about what anyone says, all that matters is that you love it.
By The Way – Your nails are on point! Great color choice!

Solitaires are classic and timeless, you can’t go wrong. They may not be trendy right now like halos are, but that will change. It’s beautiful now and will always be! If you love it, show it off proudly :).

I have a real old lady ring. My engagement ring was my grandmother’s. My beloved grandfather bought it for her, in 1923. Some people have commented about how small it is (1/4c), especially because I’m a big girl. Of course, to me it’s priceless.

Your set is pretty much what I want! Solitaires are classic and beautiful.

What?! No way! I think your ring is gorgeous, and I looove that cushion. As a 26 year old not “old lady,” I would totally wear that set.

MrsAAA: I think it is beautiful and timeless. I am a 42 year old woman though – so I count in the old catagory! Ha, ha. But seriously it’s lovely. Your cousin is a kid and doesn’t likely know much about wedding sets to give a valid opinion. (Rose gold is actually very popular/trendy or so I thought.)

Yeah, I am pretty against the idea of choosing rings based on what others would like or not like. That is a pretty sure path to regret.
I have rings that are 80-100+ years old which would therefore be legitimately not only “old lady”, but “old, dead lady” at this point and I don’t care as I love them and don’t buy or wear my rings to be trendy, but because I enjoy them and I think they are lovely. I would not care if every other person on the planet hated the style of rings I like (actually, I would prefer it as I would probably get a lot of choice and some awesome deals!)
Also, she is a teenager. I don’t know how old you are, but the last time I gave a shit about what a teenager thought was well, when *I* was still a teenager. I don’t even give a shit what other people my age think about my rings or other style choices, so cannot even imagine giving more than a second’s thought to a teenager’s opinion.

MrsAAA: Solitaires are timeless – absolutely nothing ‘old lady’ about them and rose gold is very trendy at the moment – I’ve never met a granny rocking a rose gold ring-set. Your set is gorgeous, don’t pay any mind to the peanut gallery.

Well I think part of the reason i feel that way (please see my 2nd post in this thread) is that ultimately a solitaire is the only ring setting I did NOT want before getting engaged, but my Fiance refused to consider anything else. I always wanted something with diamonds on the band. It’s not that I care so much what my teenage cousin thinks, she just reminded me of what I was thinking all along :-/ Which sucks
