Your ring is beautiful, what do people say to you?

Bigger doesn’t always mean pricier 😉

By the way your ring is beautiful, I really do not understand why anybody would comment negatively even if they were compelled to be honest?

I just don’t understand A) where these people who care about the size/shape/consistency of another person’s ring come from and B) why anyone cares what another person thinks to begin with. I have a pearl e-ring that cost under $200, which you’d think might get negative attention but never has. And maybe if it has, I just haven’t cared to notice? Don’t say anything if someone says something you construe as negative. Smile, nod and ask them to pass the bean dip.

The biggest comeback you can give someone after they’ve made a negative comment is to literally act like it didn’t phase you at all. Ignorance is bliss! 🙂

I’m shocked (and disgusted) to think that people would make comments on your ring size.  Are you referring to the size of the diamonds?  Or the size of the band?  Either way, please just ignore those people.  

If they make a comment, just say, It’s exactly what I wanted and I love it.  and leave it at that.

First, let me say that your ring is beautiful!

My gut reaction would be to say something equally crappy and insulting…then I would wish that I had been the bigger person and said something classy like “This ring is EXACTLY what I wanted!”

I think the appropriate response is, “Wow, are you always that rude?”

@mrsbruff2b:  It never fails to amaze me how rude people can be.  You could either (a) just ignore it, depending on who the person is (i.e. I wouldn’t say anything to a boss or someone in a position senior to you at work) or (b) just be honest and say “wow, that’s kind of rude of you to say”.  You don’t have to say it in a mean way, just say it simply and let them stumble over themselves apologizing to you.

I wouldn’t even dignify these statements with a response.  Unreal!!

@mrsbruff2b:  oh that is gross.  What is wrong with people?  Your ring is elegant and beautiful (as you know).

I agree with @Miss Mochaccino, don’t stoop to their level, just leave it at the fact that you love it.
