I need a good vent!
I got engaged last Saturday, and I’m still on Cloud 9. I’ve shown everyone my ring and everyone loves it… until today. A co-worker of mine saw it for the first time today and her response was “A friend of mine got engaged and got a really small ring, and when she got her wedding band, her rings started to look “right.” Her stone was even smaller than yours.”
Ummm, excuse me??? First of all, my diamond is not small! It’s .75 carat, which on my size 4 finger looks like a full carat (at least my fiance, family and I all think so), and the overall carat weight is about 1.5. It’s amazing quality and I love the way my ring sparkles. Second of all, who the hell says something like that?????
How can people be so rude? Even if she didn’t mean it to be offensive, it really upset me!

Comments like that are usually jealousy. I know it sucks but don’t take it to heart. You love your ring and thats all that matters.

Rude comments like that are designed to be ignored. DOnt let that get to you.

I don’t get what she means. How is a ring supposed to look? What does a ring that looks “right” look like? What an odd thing to say.
Don’t be upset over her embarrassing herself. 🙂 Some people don’t have as much…finesse as others. And some people are just really awful at compliments.

Awww, at least she didn’t ask you if it was fake! That was the response I got from a former classmate when she checked out my ring. *rolls eyes* Some people are just dolts and really need to shove their fist in their mouth before they speak. Congrats on your engagement and don’t let wieners like that get to you! 🙂

First of all, congrats on your engagement!!! Secondly, some people have no tact, ignore her comment. Thirdly, show your ring to us – we love to see rings!

Thanks everyone for the comments and congrats!!! You guys are the best!
I’m going to have to agree that she’s jealous, now that I think about it. She’s made other little backhanded comments here and there over time that either show her jealousy or just plain stupidity!
I wish I was better at comebacks! I always think of clever, witty remarks about 10 minutes later.
That’s awful! People really ARE stupid, aren’t they?
I’ve tried typing out what I think she means like 5 times, and each time I just can’t figure it out either!
Ok, back to Cloud 9!

Well, if you insist… 🙂 🙂 I have to get better pictures, these don’t do the ring justice at all!

Your ring is gorgeous. Seriously gorgeous. Don’t let that girl suck any of the joy out of it for you.

that woman is on crack – not that the size of the stone matters but that stone does NOT look small

You have a beautiful ring. Don’t let anyone bring you down.
One girl at work made this overly dramatic squealing noise, asking to see my ring, then, looked at it and said, oh, it’s cute. CUTE? I eventually shrugged it off but I was seriously steamed.

Thanks ladies! Granted I have small hands, but still… 🙂 I absolutely adore it and have to remember that!
And @eloping:, you are absolutely right, the size of the stone doesn’t matter, and I don’t want to offend anyone by this post. It just, well, you know, it hurt!
