  • Wedding: September 2014

I had a former co-worker take the ring off my finger so she could try it on. She was SOOO lucky we were at work. I had not even known her like that. So rude… I was prepared to beat that a*s either way… Then she tells me afterward that I should get a plain wedding band, because otherwise it would be “too many diamonds”. Um, there is no such thing, I likes the bling!

Once upon a time I got a “cute” comment for my original e-ring from a different former co-worker. Neither of these girls were where they wanted to be as far as relationships go, so it was very easy to brush them off, and laugh about it shortly after. Oh, and another former co-worker would stared my rings down on more than one occasion, but never complemented them even after asking to see them! She would show me other people’s rings, though, like I should be more impressed with theirs. No, because I don’t compare and I love what I have. This girl was totally crazy, unhappily divorced, and hooked on prescription drugs among many other problems, so yeah…

MrsWe:  I was gone for almost a year so I just wanted to say– congrats!!!

Also– I always get the “wow! That’s such a unique ring” because it is. I’m sure a lot of people don’t mean it totally kindly, but I don’t care. I like that I can pick my ring out of a line-up. 🙂

MrsWe:  people who ask if you can take your ring off to get a better look and try it on. I learned real quick not to take it off anymore.  When people ask if I can take it off i say no. My friend did this yesterday but she was like let me try it on and see if it fits. I Was like no it’s bad luck. Even if it’s not i still was like no it’s bad luck and it’s my ering you don’t let people try it on. So i wouldn’t say it’s the comments that i have a problem with it’s people who are rude and try stuff on without asking. Like insaid though i learned real quick to not take it off when people ask. 

 

Has anyone else had this happen?

vanessa1359:  yes, but it doesn’t bother me if people want to try it on! I had a single friend who is going to be engaged in the next year try it on because I wanted to see how a solitaire would look on her

MrsWe:  I have had many different reactions to my ring. I have had starring, silence, gorgeous, pretty, oh…its big, and the worst… He must have two jobs. But even though the comments or lack of comments can be good and bad. I hate when people grab your hand without asking, and touch the top of your center stone. It kills me!! Why do you need to cover the stone you are trying to look at? lol. I do not understand. 

 

P.S. I do not mean you, I mean you as in people that do this. hehe

vanessa1359:  I’ve asked my aunt to let me try on her ring, but mostly to get a feel for the diamond size on my hand. Oddly enough we wear the same size lol.

Usually if people wanna see my promise ring (had it over 4 years) I just take it off and hand it to them. I just get weird about people touching me, but I guess I’ll have to get over that when it comes to the e-ring

  • Wedding: January 2014 - Monte Carlo inn

Ive had many people compliment my ring and Ive had many people react weirdly to it. My husbands cousin is jealous (I think) of my ring (Or the attention I get from it). Whenever I’m at her house with some friends, and one of the friends compliments how sparkly and stunning my ring is,  she would always say “it’s huge…” with this disgusted look on her face. FIRST OF ALL, its not huge…its a 1 carat and that’s pretty standard. My size 3.75 fingers don’t help to make it smaller though lol. I know for a fact that she doesn’t like me much because she was always obsessed with my husband (That’s HER COUSIN! how weird is that? ).

I’ve gotten some “silence” reactions from co-workers. I don’t understand what made them so speechless because my ring is an ordinary solitaire.

Or “He can afford that?!!”. Um…yes he can. That is why it’s on my finger….

Took me a while but I learned to not care. I love my ring and that is all that matters 🙂

Mrs_BunInTheOven:  Wow, you cousin gets a disgusted look?! do you think your cousin and the coworkers suspect know your ring isn’t a real diamond?  My friend gets sideeye for her moissanite too.  I’m so dreading that with mine  I can tell a moissanite and I’m sure there are others who can tell a ring isn’t a diamond if they see it enough. Moissy’s sparkle, cut and color are a little different than diamond.
