A woman on the subway complimented my set the other day, then told me to turn my engagement ring to the inside of my hand at all times because “this is NYC and people will cut off your finger or murder you for less.” I’m not sure if it was rude exactly, but it was kind of an insane thing to say to a stranger…I was definitely like ๐Ÿ˜ณ.

Sapphires have always been my favorite gemstone… blue, white, pink, color doesn’t matter. My first e-ring was a natural blue sapphire but because of the unusual shape, when I got married I wore the diamond set that my mother left to me when she passed and wore the sapphire as an rhr. After I gained too much weight to fit it anymore (went from size 4 to size 7), instead of resizing it I wanted a set of my own. My hubby got me a beautiful white gold 3 stone lab-created white sapphire set. When I took it to the jewelry store to be redipped, the saleslady said to me “Why do you want to redip this sapphire? It’s not like it’s a diamond or anything. Here let me show you some real bridal sets.” (I won’t repeat my reply was because it was pretty mean and I just said it to be a mean wench). However, since she had already taken my ring and given it to the manager I stormed off. When I went to pick up my ring, I don’t know what they did but they had ruined it; the rhodium was all clumpy and the sapphires looked worse than low grade, cloudy, old cz’s. After half an hour of flipping I was reimbursed the full price of the ring but my beautiful set was gone and I swore never to walk back into that store again.

Now, I have several wedding sets in CZ, morganite, and a brand new e-ring in pink sapphire… and a bunch of loose moissanite laying around waiting to be set in nice rings. People are always commenting on how often I change my rings and I just don’t care… they’re going to have an opinion and sometimes be mean about it… can’t change that… but I’m not going to let anyone dictate what I like either.

Only rudish comments I’ve had is “is it a real diamond” (which it isn’t and I tell them, lol) and “did he buy that or did you?” which was the only one that really bothered me

I have only one rude comment. I don’t normally get any comments. The rude comment was from my British friend ‘it’s nice but Americans go for size over quality don’t they’ in reference to the ring my American Fiance bought me. My comment back ‘it’s a D IF’. That shut her up :p.

Just got engaged a month ago. A lot of people just stare and say nothing lmao. I guess it’s because it’s a solitaire set in a plain platinum setting. The majority of the people in my area get halos or intricate settings. I’ve got a D, 1.01 carat ring. I guess the most “rude” comment I’ve received was a backhanded, “your ring looks way bigger in person” comment. I don’t know, it just sounded bitchy. Maybe it’s just the way she said it. Oh well ๐Ÿ™‚

Fiance basically picked out a beautiful rose gold and morganite ring to propose with (as the proposal was a total surprise), and wanted us to design our engagement ring and choose the diamond together. But I have had some pretty rude comments about my proposal ring, even though I adore it, such as:

Family Member: Let’s see the ring then *pause* I mean, that’s obviously not a diamond. You guys couldn’t afford one that size. 

Colleague/Best Work Buddy: How much was the ring? (Note. Said colleague didn’t even bother congratulating me when I relayed the good news, just straight up went to ask about how much the ring cost – not my best work buddy anymore.)

Senior Colleague: Well that’s very…unusual, isn’t it? I suppose if you like it though…

Our engagement photographer: Let’s get some close ups of the engagement ring….oh, where’s your engagement ring? THATS not an engagement ring, is it?!

My father-in-law when he first saw my ring said “That is a nice little ring I guess” Ha! It is 2 carats total weight. I dont think it counts as “small” (not implying that “small” rings are bad, I think all ring/sizes are beautiful)

Bless his heart he is 65 and has like no filter. His exwife was a gold digger/had rediculous high standards. She required a large ring with lots of stones or she would not marry him.
