@hfwildcat:  WTF was she talking about – it is gorgeous, and DEFINITELY an engagement ring!  Sorry she was so rude, but just know that your ring is amazing!

My Fiance works with a girl who told her finance that the ring was too small for her and until he could get the one she wants (which is $25,000) she won’t marry him. Sounds like your co-worker

It’s a beautiful ring, congratulations!

who the bleep would call that a promise ring? Perhaps you’re a lot younger than the average? Either way it’s beautiful and classic!

Your ring is absolutely gorgeous. I would never ever think that was a promise ring. It’s actually my dream ring and I’m super jealous of it!

Slap the heifer!  Just kidding!  And even if it was a promise ring, it’s YOURS!  It’s a beauty!

Are you younger than the “standard” engagement age in your work/social circles?  I can’t imagine her thinking it was a promise ring from the beautiful ring itself!

We’re on the young-ish side, and when we called my fiance’s grandmother, she happily congratulated us on our “pre-engagement.”  We just laughed and said “no, real engagement, all proper-like, with a ring!” and all was well.  I had a coworker ask me about the ring about a week after we got engaged, and apologized for “just kind of assuming it was on my right hand.”  It’s funny how folks seem jump to the least-obvious conclusions!

Congratulations! Your ring looks just like my friend’s engagement ring except your center stone is a bit larger.  Maybe your co-worker needs glasses?

That’s really dumb. Your ring looks like a proper engagement ring, so don’t listen to the haters. She’s probably just bitter….is she single or has she been waiting a long time?

Besides, three stone rings are traditionally supposed to be yesterday, today and tomorrow, right? If this was a promise ring, wouldnt the bigger stone be the “tomorrow’ (right-side) one?

Wow, that was incredibly rude of her. It’s a gorgeous ring. And hell if that is a promise ring, with an .82 center, holy crap would the actual ring be MASSIVE. Congrats1

In no way would I look at your ring, and think that it’s a promise ring.  It’s beautiful!  Congratulations!

It doesn’t look like a promise ring to me. Maybe she thought that because it was a three stone and not a solitaire that it may be a promise ring? I have had people ask me if my three stone was an anniversary present, because they only equate a single stone to an engagement ring.
