I think it’s gorgeous.  Also, I think only you and your husband get a vote.  🙂

I can’t imagine saying something like that to a DiL. If it makes you happy that’s all that matters. Enjoy it!!

@MrsJ2Bee:  I think your ring upgrade is absolutely stunning 😍 and your Mother-In-Law should know when to keep quiet about matters that don’t concern her.

Beautiful ring Bee, not sure where the mothership comment is coming from but I wouldn’t give it much thought.

Beautiful ring. It’s not your MIL’s business and she was rude to call it a mothership.

Well that was certainly rude of her! Not her ring, not her business and she could use a lesson on keeping her unsolicited opinions to herself. Is she the type that criticizes your choices regularly? I know people like that and they really try to suck the joy away from others.

Your ring is absolutely gorgeous and you should not give her comment any headspace at all. The design and size are perfect and look wonderful on your hand! Wear it with pride and joy 💜

My mom always tells me everything she hates about my ring. Seriously – she’ll message me out of the blue about it, but I just ignore her. It’s cliche, but it’s true: if you like it, then that’s all that matters! Ignore her.

I don’t see why your MIL’s opinion would matter! I think it’s a beautiful ring.

It may not be everyone’s taste, but who cares what she thinks.  You’re the one wearing it.

Is your Mother-In-Law wearing it?  

If not, it’s none of her business.

You like it, you wear it!

I am a Mother-In-Law. Who cares what she thinks?  Do what makes you happy. It’s none of her business.

Why does she get to have a say? Also, where’s your hubby on this… why can’t he set boundaries with his own mother and say “no mom, WE both love it, and no one gets to have an opinion about it. If you don’t have any creative and positive feedback, then we’re not interested.”
