“OMG did you just get it cleaned!??”

In fact…no, I didn’t.  Quality goes a looooooong way my friends.

@MrsFuzzyFace:  LOL…I can see that getting old.  I’d have the constant urge to be like “no…ruby’s” lol

People usually say it’s beautiful and ask what the side stones are. They’re blue diamonds, but a lot of people ask if they’re sapphires.

I have a purple sapphire. People ask if its an amethyst. I tell them no its a sapphire. Most people dont realise the variety of colors sapphires come in.

People usually say “Its so sparkly!” (I have yet to take a picture that does it justice).  I also hear delicate and classic a lot.

I get a lot of:

“wow that is really different” and “did HE pick that out?” (I don’t really know why they care…)

Here on WB is get alot of compliments but IRL I really have not had anything but snarky remarks but we just moved and I don’t know very many people here. When I went back to our hometown to vist I got “Well that was sweet of him” (we upgraded my set)

I get a lot of “it’s huge!” or “it’s perfect!” 🙂 some people get kind of short with me about it but i think it’s because they’re jealous. It’s a 1.56 carat and my finger is a size 6. (sorry for the blurry picture)

“It’s gorgeous!” Sometimes preceded by a “holy cow!”

@MrsFuzzyFace:  Thank you! I love your set too!! *Sighs yeah….quite a few remarks actually.

Posted a thread about it awhile back: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/snarky-remarks-about-your-ring

But to keep you from having to scroll down through all of it, here is the gist of what I posted:

“Just yesterday one of my husbands classmates grabed my hand and then got really close to my hubbys face and says really loud “You KNOW you coulda got her something SMALLER!” “It’s not like she needed THAT!”

Last week I got a comment “Oh…that’s…um…cute…” *fake smile- from a jewelry sales person (we were not in the store for me…)

2 weeks ago I had a few of my friends quiz me on why the heck I chose to go gemstone for my wedding band instead of diamonds…..like it’s a sin or something. Anyway apparently they thought it was a bad choice.

3 weeks ago when I took my bands in to get them sodderd together the jewelry repair guy took my rings and then looked at my husband square in the eye and says “are you sure she is worth all this?” And of course my hubby says promply “Um..she’s worth more than that!”Then the guy turns around to walk back to the actual jeweler and says “Well I don’t think so”. Ouch!

These are just a few off the top of my head….but dang…wth?”

“Is that a Princess cut?”

Nope, it’s an Asscher.
