ppl like that usually have something in their life making them uncontrollably miserable. they have to tear down others, talk down to them, or treat them as lesser equal to lift themselves up. ive been cussed up and down in past retail and health care positions by ppl like this who just cant recognize anything positive in anybody else because they cant handle being jealous anymore. i feel sorry for them for about two seconds and then just move on with my day. its not ur problem if she doesnt like ur ring or wedding.

She doesnt feel that she is better than you…she is jealous of you or very insecure in her own relationship and life…absolutely ignore her comments as by you reacting she is gaining more power for her almost bullying ways…bullys like to make you feel bad because they feel bad.

Gorgeous ring. Don’t listen to her.
Do you know anyone with a big diamond in their ring? Maybe they can come visit you at work and you could introduce her to your “friend” and they can say something about her “little” and “cheap” diamond. That’s the problem with being judgemental about diamonds or whatever – there’s always someone with a bigger/nicer/more expensive one!

The only thing that’s cheap is her!
She clearly has issues and she’s saying these things because she knows you won’t say anything back. You need to start standing up for yourself.
She has no right to make any of those comments especially about you being a bad mother.
Just remember why you picked your ring and why you love it. I think it’s beautiful!
Also everytime she says something negative just say to yourself “she’s really unhappy” because she must be a very unhappy person to have to go around being so rude to other people. Ultimately feel sorry for her and be glad you’re not her!

It sounds to me like she’s just a bitch and she’s making rude comments to you to make herself feel better about being such a bitch.
Your ring is beautiful by the way!

Your ring is BEAUTIFUL, and she sounds like a sad, mean person. Distance yourself from her as much as you can… why have her bad juju messing up your happy??

@bouncybee: tell her “you don’t have to like it, you’re not invited anyway”.

My first instinct was to tell her to go eff herself but you are better off taking the high road. The best thing you can do is be happy and content with your life, baby, ring, marriage and man.
Btw, your ring is stunning! She is just jealous.

I can only take so much of someone else’s BS before I put them in their place … In this case, I would probably say something along the lines of “I guess Princesses Di & Kate’s fiances were “cheap” too. I am sorry you feel that way but until you are sheltering, feeding and f$&:ing me, your opinion doesn’t matter. I surely hope your fiancé soon realizes what a classless, materialistic, immature, bullying bitch he is marrying.” then walk away.
Dont let this wench live rent-free in your head … EVICT her from your thoughts!

I find this despicable, for so many reasons. Setting aside her rudeness, even *if* the ring were “cheap,” what difference does it make? It’s a symbol of love, not of net worth. That’s the first point. Second, when did “cheap” take on such a derogatory connotation? There are a lot of individuals and entire cultures, collectively, who scoff at excess and outwardly displays of showiness. Cheap doesn’t mean poor. Cheap doesn’t mean classless. Cheap doesn’t mean bad, either. As soon as we stop feeding into this mindset, the less people will feel it’s okay to demean people for their financial choices and purchases. You should have said (even if it’s not true): “yep. It sure is. We got it out of a gum-ball machine for $.25” and left her standing there looking stupid.
Edit: And your ring is beautiful, btw!
