Your finger. Your choice. You ring is not ugly at all, only different. People tend not to like things they are not used to.

Wear what makes you happy whether it be clothes, hairstyles, rings, whatever. THBBPTHZZ (raspberry sound) to everyone who disagrees…

Beautiful ring! 🙂  Don’t overthink any comments that people make! It sounds like nobody is calling it ugly, but they are more just caught off guard beacause it’s not “traditional” but that’s what makes it awesome- the fact that it’s totally YOU! Very special! Congratulations on the engagement!!

It’s really pretty! Different is good. Embrace different. Don’t ever be afraid of it. I can’t believe people have given you those reactions. Since when does an engagement ring need to look a certain way? It is an attractive ring!

Your ring is beautiful and unique and, most importantly, it’s the ONLY one that you loved in your shopping experience. I think you should remember that when people say things that feel less than flattering. Their comments haven’t sounded rude- just less effusive than one might like regarding their engagement ring. If you get in the habit of saying “I love it. It’s exactly what I wanted.” then the questions will die down.

I think it is along the lines of someone that wears a gorgeous emerald green dress as a bride. Technically, it is actually much more beautiful than a traditional white dress, but it isn’t what is expected. I think of your ring that way. Much more beautiful than an ordinary solitaire, but not what is expected. 

Kinda like people who rock their own style rather than follow the fad no matter how ugly it is. 

I think you are incredibly lucky to find a ring that you love and that suits you. Congratulations!

I seriously LOVE your ring! I am a huge fan of unique engagement rings. I mean absolutely zero disrespect to anybody who has a lovely solitaire or halo or three-stone ring, etc, but my favorite rings are always the ones when you can truly say it’s unique! My ring is a solitaire, but in a uniquely-shaped setting (shaped like a flower/rose) and I actually had a couple of customers at my part-time job ask “is that an engagement ring?”. They said it was pretty and I dont’ think they meant anything rude by it, it’s just funny to think that some people are so thrown-off by seeing anything but the norm worn on your left finger! (I imagine ladies with colored gemstones as their e-rings get that too!)

Don’t let those comments get to you — it’s a truly unique ring and incredibly beautiful!

lillylou :  your ring is gorgeous! I love different! This is one of the rings I wear on my ring finger (I alternate multiple rings/sets) and I’ve gotten some snide comments on it too (looks like a cocktail ring, isn’t really a wedding ring, etc). I love it and that’s all that matters. There’s always going to be someone who doesn’t like what you have.

Haters gonna hate. All that matters is if YOU like it. There is absolutely nothing wrong it. I think trends are geared towards simplicity right now. But trends come and go. It’s not my style, but who cares – I can’t even figure out what I like. If it’s on your left ring finger, it reads engagement ring to me.

Stunning!

Now, do the introduction in a way that will guide them to be less doubtful. “Look at this picture of my gorgeous ring!” “I love my unique ring, and I want to show you the picture!” “This isn’t everyone’s ring, and that’s one thing I love about it!”  

Anyone who can be rude after an opening like that is really, really, really rude. And you can reply “How rude.”

cassandra7 :  Great advice! And this made me think of something. There’s rings I’m not crazy about in pictures all enlarged – but when I see them in person they’re gorgeous. They still shouldn’t be dicks, but maybe in person they will like it better.
