I’ve gotten a couple of comments like ‘oh is that an engagement ring? I wasn’t sure because it’s not a diamond.’

 

So the only way you know someone is engaged is if they have a diamond on that finger on the left hand? I wanted something different so I got a sapphire and I love it!

Well, my ring hasn’t come yet…so it’ll be interesting I guess to find out.

I just wanted to say that you’re right…what your ring is doesn’t matter. All that matters is what it means between you and your fiance.  So, good for you for cutting her negativity out of your life. I bet your ring is gorgeous.

I have a diamond engagement ring, and here’s a comment I just read:

“We can afford a diamond, but ethically, we chose this instead.” 

I agreed with most of what your post is saying, but do you realize what you said implies that you think if a someone has a diamond, they have worse ethics than you? I’m glad you like your ring, OP.

In front of both our fiances… her fiance looked so embarassed and mine was a little peeved

A girl I know recently asked me to try it on, which I thought was kind of odd, especially because it was a few months after we got engaged.

I’ve had three people immediately ask me what my Fiance does after they saw my ring. I also had a few say wow he must make a lot of money. My ring is modest in my opinion, it’s a half carat with a micropave halo and doesn’t look huge on my finger or anything. I always just feel weird when someone immediately makes a financial comment after seeing it.

People always assume my 2 carat moissanite is a diamond and make comments about how huge it is (aka expensive).  It cost $1300 for my entire wedding set.  Yes, we could have afforded a nice diamond as well, but we didn’t want a diamond for much the same reasons as OP.  I think it’s hilarious that people assume we’re loaded because of my ring.  You should never assume anything about people’s financial or relationship status from their ring- there are any number of reasons their ring is different than what you would expect.

Agreed about the ethics point… My diamond ring was also mined and produced through transparent, ethical channels. Ethical diamonds are vital to the future of Africa, its the country’s most valuable natural resource….

But anyhoo…

My only negative comment was on here! Crazy pants said my ring was “grotesque” and then went on some rambling rant about how Im a dreadful wench who must only be appeased by baubles…. It was amazing, I should have screen shot it. All because I jokingly called TheGrid’s ring a promise ring (its a 2 carat solitaire if you havent seen it) lol. 

One lady at a estate/pawn shop was like “well Im sure youd like an upgrade before the wedding” actually… no. Im good. Really good. Got my dream ring, dream size. Thank you.

DH’s aunt told me it looked like a yellow diamond… center diamond colour is F, and the halo diamonds are D; not at all yellow!  I also had a girl tell me that her ovals “are not a desired cut so they’re not expensive” (what?).  I think comments like that are a reflection of the speaker’s own insecurity and pettiness.  Haters gonna hate!

Someone in my Sunday School class at church asked to see my ring and said “Oaww, it’s cute.”

Like NO [email protected]#$ … it’s not cute! It’s almost 1.6 ct three stone diamond ring that my fiance spent a lot of money on and sacrificed hard for! Grrrr!

My mom and my sister think my ring is “too much” and don’t like it at all. It doesn’t bug me, I love my ring very much. My FH picked it, and I thought it was beautiful the moment it was on my hand, and that’s what matters.
