nordiclight :  Right? I’ve been friends with her for 10 years, and she’s usually the nicest person, so I got caught off-guard. I guess some women are really competitive about these things. 😳

I love aquamarine erings! I was actually thinking about getting one myself (or a morganite-they’re both absolutely beautiful!) I think as long as you’re in love with it, who cares!! I feel like there’s always going to be someone that doesn’t like your ering but that doesn’t mean that they should explicitly say it outloud!

I know a friend of mine that just got recently engaged and this other girl saw the ring and LITERALLY said, “Oh, it’s cute. A little small for my hands” I was COMPLETELY shocked. Some people just plain rude. My friend replied, “Well thank god the ring’s on MY hand” haha, I would honestly just say a witty comment and move on.

I’ve gotten a semi-rude comment about my ring from a friend of mine. She’s got a dark blue oval sapphire with a round diamond on either side of it. She’s super proud of her ring, and she HATES just having a straight up diamond. Now her ring isn’t my cup of tea at all, but I still told her it was really pretty and commented on certain details that I loved (i.e, the curve of the band, the shape of the stone). 

Before I got engaged, I had a picture of my ring on my phone. I showed it to her because I was excited and she literally just went “Oh…it’s uh…” and I told her that I knew it wasn’t quite her style to which she replied, “Yeah no. Not at all. I hate diamonds and I think halos look tacky.” When we finally got engaged, she never once asked to see the ring and won’t comment on it at all. 

She recently showed me a picture of a marquise gemstone set in yellow gold (also not particuarly my cup of tea, but I’m not the one wearing it so no big deal!) and she asked if I was in love with it. I simply said, “I prefer the pear shape to the marquise and white gold instead of yellow, but it is certainly a pretty ring!” to which she responded, “I thought you would have loved it because you like the weird shapes. But this one is much prettier because it doesn’t have the halo or diamond.” 

Which is pretty much my ring.

I’ve had mostly positive experiences with people and my ring.  Even my loud mouth aunt said she liked it, and that was the one I was most worried about.  She tells me on the regular if she doesn’t like my outfit that particular day. 

I did have a 12 year old tell me that her mom’s ring was much bigger haha.  That was a strange interaction because I didn’t really know the 12 year old but I just laughed and said that my ring was the perfect size for me 🙂

kmartin2017 :  I got the exact same thing from one of my students (9 years old). I was thinking, well, your mum is married to a doctor and I’m marrying a flooring salesman, so that would account for a lot…

Some people were just silent when they saw me ring. One girl said that I probably should’nt show my ring too proudly (because in her opinion, it is small). 

His mom said “at least it isn’t too small that you have to squint.”

One of my coworkers said my bands are so tiny that they look like they will break, and compared hers to mine. 

I love my ring. I wanted a thin band because it looks better on my fingers, which are kind of slim but short, and I don’t think my ring is tiny. It’s only 0.5 carats, and has diamonds along the band, but I think it is perfect. My husband was in school around the time he wanted to propose and had a lot of debt (and so do I), and I told him a ring wasn’t necessary, but he wanted to get me one anyway, and it is the exact style that I loved.

I am so blown away by some of these comments … I can’t recall any comments that I’ve received on mine but my old boss got engaged after I moved across the country so when she texted me of course I asked to see a picture of her ring. She sent me a picture and I tell her I love it, it’s beautiful, and her reply to me is “I think I’m going to make him take it back and get me a bigger one”. I was completely speechless! Like she cared more about the ring than her fiance (now husband).

freckledfrida :  I love your ring. I’m planning on getting an aquamarine ring in the near future 😀 the only rude comment I’ve gotten to date was someone asked if my ring was made of copper. It’s rose gold. She said it in a snarky tone. My ring is not traditional and I guess she didn’t approve lol

Usually I get polite comments about my ring but I often hear “That’s a nice ring. What does your husband do?” All in the same breath. Or “How much does he make?” Haha!


The funniest is when my students ask to try it on and then tell me that I should let them keep it!! Hahaha


Although the rudest thing I have ever heard was from a man, he said “That’s a nice ring, but I’ll give you a bigger one”. I wonder if that pickup line has ever worked.
