The ring you posted is lovely, but you should wear the ring you love.  Don’t cancel your order.

Sorry your Future Mother-In-Law is being difficult.

Wear the ring you want to wear.  If it’s really a big deal to Future Mother-In-Law, wear the Claddagh on your right and this ring on your left when she’s around.  In the end, this will matter for a very short period of time – then she’ll be getting in your hair about the various wedding details she doesn’t agree with.  Do what pleases you, because you’ll never be able to please her.

First of all OMG that ring is GORGEOUS! But wear the ring you two initially decided on. Set the precedent NOW that you won’t give into FMIL’s every whim.

You chose a ring you love, which is the only thing that matters.  Why on Earth did your fiance let his mother bully him into buying you something else?

I agree the ring is really lovely, but I worry that if you wear this new one, it will just serve as a constant reminder of the time he let his mom’s opinion matter more than yours.

Your Future Mother-In-Law sounds like a nightmare, so I wish you luck.

Go with the original ring you love.  If you give into her unreasonable demands now there’ll be no end to them.

I’m a little bit offended by your not so nice Mother-In-Law…I have the claddagh engagement ring you are referring to.  There are a few of us Bees that chose it as our engagement ring. It is a beautiful ring.  It is not as large as your 2nd sapphire ring but it is lovely. As for me it symbolizes so much more than an engagement.

I think you should wait until you get the claddagh ring from Ireland. Then you can have them side by side and choose the one you love. If you don’t set boundaries now your Mother-In-Law will always be in your business.

By The Way, I wouldn’t let your Mother-In-Law near the bridal store when you go to look for your dress.  She needs to remember her place. And, that place is not between you and your FH.  Be the pack leader now, it will safe a lot of tears later.

PS: sorry for the “pack leader” comment. I have Golden Retrievers. If I give them an inch they take a mile.

Please share with us which ring you choose and what happened with Mrs. In Your Business.

@SuzieMG95:  Holy moly, that ring is gorgeous. Anyway… I agree with PPs. Wear the ring you love and want to symbolize your marriage! People are going to have rude comments regardless of what you get. It’s so frustrating that they’re coming from your Future Mother-In-Law. But your ring is none of her business, and her comments are completely out of line.

Since I’m the bee you mentioned and therefore I actually HAVE the engagement ring your mother-in-law is complaining about, I could take offence at her comments, but I think they only go to show how truly ignorant she is–ignorant in the sense that she’s rude, and ignorant in the sense that she has no idea what she’s even talking about here.  A Claddagh ring is perfectly appropriate for an engagement ring because when it is worn upside down on the left hand, it means the wearer is engaged, and then you wear it rightside up on the left hand when you are married to indicate your status as a married woman.  This ring also comes with a matching wedding band (which I also have).  Besides that, the Claddagh symbolizes never-ending love, loyalty, and friendship–all the necessary elements of a strong relationship.  Claddagh rings are traditional Irish love rings and are in fact worn as engagement rings and/or wedding rings as a cultural practice!  This ring is not about the size of the center stone–it’s about the symbolism in the design.  It’s not as expensive as some other engagement rings but by no means is it a cheap ring and I wear it with NOTHING but pure PRIDE!

So everyone else can see the ring you’re talking about:
