    It doesn’t matter one bit what other people think. Only you. If you love it, who cares what other people think.

    I wear a ring that is probably considered a cocktail ring on my wedding ring finger because I love the color of the sapphire. I don’t think I could find a prettier blue sapphire. I have looked for a really long time.

    I read some comments about my ring on another website that my ring is a ‘crime against sapphires’ and that it looks like costume jewelry and I don’t mind what people say because not everyone has the same tastes and all that matters is that I love it.

    So stop caring what people think. Life is so much better when you stop caring about others opinions.

    I think it looks nice, but it really doesn’t matter what I or anyone else thinks about your ring.

    Oh honey, your ring is gorgeous and clearly an engagement ring!

    I also have an unusual ring and my grandmother called it a cocktail ring too. Then I let her try it on and she ran to my grandfather and said “look at her beautiful engagement ring!”

    As long as you love it that’s all that matters.

    thelorimarie :  anyone who calls your ring a cocktail ring just finds it big. From Google “A cocktail ring is a piece of jewelry that is larger than normal rings and is designed to attract attention with its size” when I searched “define cocktail ring”

    nykkee :  I agree with nykkee. A ring is considered a cocktail ring because it’s big and maybe a little flashy. Maybe she meant it as a compliment of sorts?

    futuremrsfraser :  I’m going to add to my post. When I was looking at rings before getting engaged I wanted a solid center stone with a halo. I saw some cluster rings and I didnt really like the look of them. When I got mine I was over the moon, it was so pretty! And it doesnt even really look like a cluster unless you are close up. Plus my fiance chose it all by himself and bought it and suprised me. I love it because it is beautiful, but also because it’s what he chose out of love for me.

    So sparkly and gorgeous! I have an antique cluster ring from my grandmother and I love it. I have never heard of the term ‘cocktail ring’ but I have no clue why they wouldn’t think that was an engagement ring. I mean it’s a sparkly diamond ring on your wedding ring finger sooo…
