Just say that you wouldn’t be happy with anything else. Opinions are like buttholes- as my SO says- they all stink.
OMG, that is insane!! First of all, your ring is GORGEOUS…I have always loved it. Second of all, once you posted a picture of it in RL perpective, and I thought it looked HUGE. So I guess it’s all a matter or perception? I had a .53 ct solitaire and only had 1 person make a ‘small’ comment, it was someone who was unmarried at the time and it was one of those ‘Oh, I love your ring! I want one just like it but bigger’ comments. I let it slide, and bit my tongue years later when she got a ring smaller than mine. Personally, with those comments I’d be inclined to be completely rude back and ask if they had a large wedding to accomodate their large mouth (or butt, if I’m being totally honest)…but probably not the best idea. I would smile, accept their compliments and say ‘Thank you, I think it’s absolutely perfect!’ Or, come right out and say ‘Wow, that’s really rude of you to say…’ with a pityful head shake and then walk away.
Actually, the best thing to do in that situation is reply “Thank you”. Clearly they didn’t mean it as a compliment, but if you imply that you took it that way, they will be alerted to the fact that they made a rude remard or obvious statement that was unsolicited.
People can be so moronic. Don’t worry about what other people say because at the end of the day, they aren’t the ones wearing the ring, you are. People put so much emphsis on how big or how small a diamond is and it’s disgusting. The size of a diamond does NOT represent how much you are loved. Any ring at all shows that he wants to spend the rest of his life with you.
I think you have a very lovely, classy ring. Bigger isn’t always better, trust me. I have a D VVS2 princess cut solitaire. And it’s only half a carat! I could have gotton a carat with what my Fiance spent on it, but quality meant for than quantity to me.
Smile and ignore the mean remarks. Focus your energy not on them, but on how much you are loved!!
Instead of course I would plaster a smile on my face and say, “I just love it, I fill up with joy every time I see it on my finger.” And in my head I would add “…bitch.” LOL
I’m LOLing at all the comebacks!!
Um…I’m not exactly sure if these people are seeing the same ring we’re seeing here. Your ring is GORGEOUS! And I see that your ring is from Spence too! YAY ring siblings!! Our rings are from the same home. ^_^
I’m sorry I can’t help you from experience. No one’s really said anything mean or snarky about mine…I have a 0.59ct round brilliant so it’s not exactly big LOL. Don’t worry…at the meet-up, we’re all gonna be oohing and aahing over your ring!
where do these people come from? nobody has ever said anything negative to me about my rings, my wedding, or anything! I can’t believe all of these threads I read about rude comments.
I’m so sorry you have to deal with this, people suck!
I agree with
comments that blatantly rude should be totally called out. shame on that woman!
My center is .39 carats (J VVS2) The rounds are .19 carats G VS2 (cut classified as excellent).
– I don’t really know what those mean hahah. I hope its something good. I know that I love my ring and I know that’s all that matters. FI were engaged on our 10 year anniversary, I was so excited to show my ring. But after some comments like those, now I’m a little self concious when people ask to see it…
I had a friend do something similiar, when I saw her for the first time since getting engaged (of course I posted a pic of the ring on FB) she came up to me, grabbed my hand and looked at my ring. This is more or less normal of friends who are excited over engagements…however I will never forget what she said next: “OMG it is as big as it looks” with a disgusted tone…then immediately said “I need a bigger ring now…I need to tell XXX that tonight” I just looked at her and god bless my friend who was standing there and just looked at the girl that made the comment and went “um, rude” and we moved on. I thought it was the perfect response. No sense being catty back – just “thats rude” and move on.
People and their inability to filter what comes out of their mouths never ceases to amaze me!
ETA: you’re ring is gorgeous…forget silly girls and what they say!
