Wow, she’s an a*shole. I would have said somehting snarky back, but I’m just like that. I don’t allow anyone to treat me poorly or make me feel bad. She’s new, you need to put her in her place at some point so she doesn’t continue to think it’s OK ot be rude to you. I’m sorry, you didn’t deserve that, don’t let her ruin your happiness and love of your ring.

You can take the trash out of the trailer, but you can’t take the trailer out of the trash.

HappySky7:  very true! I find that in most cases those who have self-esteem issues are the most vicious and mean to others.

And yeah, what your coworker said was beyond rude.

chasesgirl:  This lady sounds like she is still living in another time! Who brags about having furs these days? I mean, I know some people still really love them, but for the most people they are not even in fashion and most people find them not only outdated, but gross too.. 

People that have to flaunt their belongings are usually the most insecure, I have found. Its really sad for her actually…

Ppl like that usually have miserable lives. Like they may be mentally or verbally abused by their FIs or DHs, or worse. I usually just feel sorry for them.

chasesgirl:  Take your little “pebble” and go scratch up her car…

 

Jk. Too bad she can’t trade in her diamonds and fur for something more valuable….like tact and class.

chasesgirl:  how socially awkward is that lady?!

And some people prefer a more simple setting or smaller stone – i personally think most rings look great on other people, but when i try them on it feels to “chunky” for me.

lame.

You are richer than she will ever be, because you have the sentiment behind the ring, and that’s something money could never buy.

Also, as a person who works with animals on a regular basis, my Fiance made sure my ring was incredibly practical and that the rock wasn’t too huge. Am I offended by that? No! I appreciate that instead of just buying something to sparkle and show off, he understood that this is an item I want to wear every day, it has to stand the test of time just like our relationship will. And the fact of the matter is that I didn’t marry him because he was fun to show off, I married him because he fits seamlessly into my everyday life. That, to me, is also how a ring should be 🙂

No disrespect to any of the ladies with big sparklers, of course! If that’s who you are, and it fits seamlessly into your life as apart of your hand every day, then that’s what matters.

chasesgirl:  wow. Just wow.

You are a much nicer girl than I. I would have said “yikes, maybe you should sell that diamond ring and buy yourself some manners instead. I happen to love my ring. obviously large diamonds and fur coats don’t automatically mean you have class.”

chasesgirl:  She is in fact slassless and tasteless. You handled that better then most! The reason she said that Im assuming is prob because her self worth is tied up in things she can buy and wear. You know what your ring means to you and that can not ever come close to comparing to a dollar amount. I think its silly to put yourself up on a pedistoll (Spelled wrong I think, sorry) way higher then others because of what you own. How do you know that 1/10 carat stone woman your making fun of cant afford a 8ct stone that you (The thrower of stones at people while you loive in a glass house yourself Im sure Co worker) cant afford yourself? Its not what you own, How much you own, How much it cost that makes you somebody with status of a true nature, Its who you are completly naked and bare as a person that gives you true status. Like I said you handled that with class and have nothing to be embaressed or ashamed about at all, She however should feel embarassed and ashamed of herself! Not only was she offensive about something she shouldnt of said a word negitivly about, She purposly thru in hurtfull digs while attacking you and tastelessly (Im so sorry about my horrible spelling today, I dnt know whats wrong with me) throwing out there what she “SUPPOSEDLY” has to everyone. That screams desperate for attention and approval to me! Im so sorry you had that happen to you! Maybe she should sell some of her numerous pebbles and get a class or two in manners, Etiquette, and self controle and a therapy session or two! 🙂

“Diamonds are a girl’s best friends”….unless they’re her only friends.  You were very nice, despite having every right to say something snarky to her!  Let’s hope she has as much fun polishing that rock all by herself as she does talking about it!

Maybe do your scared male coworker a favor (and get a little vindication for yourself) by telling him that any woman worth marrying will happily wear the ring he has in mind- not because it cost a fortune or can be seen from space- but because he chose it and has the best intentions in giving it!  (Like I’m sure your Fiance did… 🙂 )
