@MrsJ2Bee:  Tell her it looks like the mothership because it is!

My head is swimming in some choice words for your incredibly rude Mother-In-Law, but I would probably get kicked out if I posted them. 😉

Your set is absolutely gorgeous!!! Please just ignore any negative comments and enjoy it!!! It looks lovely and perfect on you! 

Some people just LOVE giving out unsolicited thoughts and advice, just smile and change the subject.

What a cowbag. It a) looks like a ring not a mothership and b) looks wonderful on you. And for good measure C) what has it got to do with her?

Roll your eyes – move on is my advice!

It’s stunning and only your and your hubby’s opinions matter in this case. Your mother-in-law has no business saying anything about it, whether she likes it or not.  Don’t let her opinion deter you from loving your ring!

@MrsJ2Bee:  keep the ring. Swap the Mother-In-Law because only one of those things is nice and worth keeping! 😉

@MrsJ2Bee:  that is a beautiful ring!  As for your Mother-In-Law, it’s none of her business and if she didn’t have anything nice to say she shouldn’t have said anything at all.

@MrsJ2Bee:  It looks gorgeous. You love it and your husband loves it. Your MIL’s opinion doesn’t matter.

Honestly, I would take “mothership” as a compliment, but I’m a sci-fi geek, so….

PPs are right, no one else gets a vote. If you love it, you love it!

@MrsJ2Bee:  No it’s not too much, it’s a blingy set but looks nicely proportional to your finger. The band looks too snug, though.

The mothership comment would have made me laugh. Enjoy your flying saucer, ignore your MIL!

I don’t even know what mothershio is supposed to mean in this conteat. But it looks great and I’d enjoy it and ignore Mother-In-Law. Easier said than done I too tend to ruminate about negative comments but don’t be like me!

Sounds like your Mother-In-Law is jealous.

Who gives a fuck what your Mother-In-Law thinks? 🤣

My in laws think I’m OCD because I want to live in a clean and well cared for home and I could give two shits about what they think when they’ve had rodent infestations in their home for as long as I’ve known them.

Seriously- she isn’t paying for your ring. Her opinion means nothing.

I think it looks very nice, perhaps your mother in law wasn’t trying to be rude. I don’t know her, but maybe she just meant it as a compliment and wasn’t trying to be derogatory. I like to give people the benefit of the doubt, sometimes people mis speak.

It actually only truly matters if you love it! … some people will say you and your spouse… but you are the one wearing it…so I say as long as you love it than that is all that should matter!

It’s beautiful, congrats!
