Oh, and another good one came from HERE! 

“Are you SURE that’s 0.75ct? You didn’t miss a decimal point somewhere in there?”

I have never had a rude comment about my ring (at least not to me face). 

When we first got engaged DH proposed with a gold band and said we would pick out the engaement ring together. It took me 7 months to choose a ring, and 2 months to have it custom made. During the plain gold band phase several people would say “oooh, let me see your ring” and I would proudly show off my gold band, and their faces sort of drooped like they didn’t know what to say. But no one ever said anything rude. 

My ring is a white sapphire and I expected people to ask “is it real” but no one ever does.

Wow im so shocked at these comments. I haven’t had anything rude said about my ring yet, but then again I have only been engaged for a few weeks. I have a yellow diamond (K) so i’m expecting to get comments about that. But I think its beautiful with rose gold.

I’ve had mine less than a week so the comments have been minimal, but my aunt already reached out to reprimand me on choosing my own ring. Apparently it’s “the wrong way to get engaged”. Mmkay. Thanks.

I’ve had a few people see mine is also aquamarine then abruptly change topic but I think the rudest was a male friend who’s planning to propose soon.  He went on a half hour tirade about how unnecessarily large it was… it’s not even that big?

A coworker at work told me”Your ring is so cute maybe in three years you can upgrade!” Mind you my ring is well over a carat that is not small!!! 😡 I did not ask her for her opinion!!! I am extremely happy with my ring and I am not upgrading!! People just need to keep their pieholes shut!!!

Not sure if necessarily rude, but a co-worker told me ‘the Titanic couldn’t hit that!’. I have a round 1ct, halo ring.

freckledfrida :  Your ring is beautiful. When Darling Husband took me to choose a ring twenty years ago, he said that he didn’t like clear stones, but that I could have any colored stone that I wanted. I chose an emerald-cut green tourmaline, and no one said anything unpleasant that I recall. In fact, I already knew a woman with an aquamarine engagement ring and another woman who had an emerald engagement ring, so it wasn’t any big deal to me not have a diamond. I kept hitting it on metal shelving at work, so at work my stand-in ring was a heart-shaped blue topaz, which looked a lot like the color of your aquamarine (I still have that ring, too).

Style Me Pretty has articles on non-diamond engagement rings practically every day, and many Wedding Bees have non-diamond engagment rings; it seems to be a big trend. These critical people are so behing the times! 😉

I tried to take a photo but I can’t seem to get one in focus tonight!

“Only 2 carats is your dream ring? 3-5 carats would be mine” … Hope she finds someone to give it to her 🙄

thorncastle :  Your ring is beautiful and defintitely not small but I wouldnt look at it and think its huge! He was probably insecure with what he was looking at for his fiance to be ::eye roll::

booski :  I HATE that I’m not even engaged yet but when i mention that i do not want a diamond engagement ring thats what i hear all the time!! I don’t understand how any engagement ring is Fake.

banjoream :  She’s just being obnoxious and jealous. Theres nothing wrong with liking really big stones like that but cmon a 1 Carat is pretty big let alone 2…
