veramae :  I don’t care for flashy, fancy rings, and it has absolutely nothing to do with envy. I have an under 1 CT diamond because I like simple, and maybe it’s silly of me, but when I see a huge ring on someone, I almost immediately think CZ, not that it should matter to them. I live in a town full of wealthy oil and ranch people, and the wealthy women tend to have rings that are not flashy or huge, but extremely well cut. I think really fancy rings are a bit of a new thing over the last few years, and maybe older people don’t like them. Someone in my family recently proposed and the ring his fiancee wanted is the talk of everyone. She is from a small town, and some have referred to it “Small-town Classy” and not in a good way. It’s a double round halo around about a3ct princess cut with a twisted shank. It’s probably a good 5 cts altogether, but it looks like it came out of a gum machine. Even her fiance who paid for it thinks it’s outrageous! 😂

I can’t believe some of the rude comments people have received. I haven’t really had anything rude happen to me with my ring, but you know what? You can never please all the people all the time. As long as you and your FI/DH are happy then that’s what matters right!? 🙂

CorpseBride88 :  I acutally LOLed when I read your comment because I can totally relate. When my husband (then fiance) friends asked to see my ring after we got engaged, most of the comments were nice but a few weren’t.  Some told me my ring was “too big” and I don’t know if I should take it is as a compliment because of the tone she said it in. I have a round stone with halo as well. I slowly learned that no matter what people say as long as you love you ring, none of their opinions matter.

I only have received one rude comment (but I’ve had my ring less than a week).  A woman a work with said my ring was “obnoxious”.  There were other coworkers that immediately jumped down her throat and told her off for me.  This woman has a bad attitude about everything and always has snide comments about marriage (she’s been divorced for a long time) so it doesn’t surprise me that she said something negative about my ring.

Otherwise I’ve only received compliments.

rainchris :  Pretty sure this thread is for talking about rude ring comments we’ve gotten from other people, not for posting our own rude comments and judging other people’s taste. Talking about people’s engagement rings behind their backs or caring at all what someone else’s ring looks like is a lot tackier than large diamonds in my opinion!

 I JUST made a post about how people weren’t providing comments at my ring at all, which I found really unusual. People who have said something about my ring said it was beautiful or pretty….I do remember the instructional aide at my school (I’m a teacher) saying my ring was “cute.” I know she meant well, but it unnerved me a little because it’s the fanciest and most expensive jewelry pieces I own.

Most people have said something like “oh… It’s so plain…” Then correct themselves saying they meant “traditional” or “classy.” Oh, OK. I’ve also gotten a lot of rude comments about how ugly and “old lady” yellow gold looks. 

I always wanted my ring to be traditional, classy, and timeless. I never wanted anything trendy. To each their own.

Dot8791 :  yellow gold is beautiful! And plus it doesn’t have to be rhodium dipped like white gold does every once in a while, which is nice!

I actually had three strangers over the past weekend comment on how nice my ring was! I’ve never had a random person I didn’t know say anything to me yet about my ring until this last weekend so that was nice. Here’s hoping I don’t run into any terrible comments like some of the bitchy people you ladies have come across!! Ugh how terrible 🙁

I love your ring OP! My sister has an aquamarine which I have been drooling over for years!

The only mean comment I’ve gotten was “oh.. but you have small hands, so its okay”

Seriously, some people are just rude!

The rudest comment was when we were shopping for his ring. It wasn’t aim at the ring but totally at us. The girls obviously thinking that seeing an exotic looking Asian girl with a white guy automatically screams “sex-trade or prostitute got lucky because he proposed!” They kept asking me about the differences between dating an Asian male and a white male. I never dated an Asian guy ever. But I told her that he’s a kind human being (in my own language) and that’s all that matters. I said “look, girls in our country get branded as a prostitute because they go off with a man twice their age and he’s so fat and ugly and they expecting him to pay for everything including jewelry and clothes and rent but I’m only here to pick him the nicest wedding ring ever.” They backed off. Haha. My fiancé is one year younger than me. He’s 29 and I’m 30. We work real hard and love the luxurious lifestyle. These girls at the ring store are obviously timid and jealous and fall into that category where they think white males are more superior than them so they would likely go out with men twice their ages just so they can get things paid for. Not my case homie I’ve been raised in Straya! (Australia lol).
