You could just say, oh an online retailer? I doubt people will really push too hard on that point, unless they’re diamond shopping themselves.

If your comfortable with where you got it then why would you lie?

Don’t lie. It will just make you feel bad about your ring…like you have a reason to be lying about it, ya know? I don’t have a diamond either, if that helps at all.

I think its great to educate people about all resources that are out there these days. You love your ring and its meaning and you’re happy where it came from – If thats how I felt about my ring (which it is, lol) I would tell them its from Asha Wink

Well, my ring is actually a $30 fake everything ring from the middle of the mall. Yours is a lot nicer than that, so maybe this doesn’t work for your situation, but I tell everyone mine is a “stunt double” and we used the saved money to pay for our wedding. Some people may not think that not having a “real” engagement ring means something bad about your relationship or Fiance, but don’t listen to them. It’s a fabulous ring. Just whatever you do, tell the same thing to everyone if you decide to flub the truth a little.

Just tell ’em you ordered it online. And tell them. Unless you don’t want them to know it’s an Asha or something.

Don’t lie.

I’ve had the same problem, only it’s been about my dress. I found my dress in the mall of all places! I absolutely adore it! I couldn’t have found a better dress for me. Everyone is asking where I got it and I say “Ohh I found it at a small dress boutique” LOL I don’t want to say Oh i got it at the mall, ya know? 

A little white lie never hurt anyone πŸ˜‰

@Linds1769: After I got my dress, I saw many white evening gowns at Macy’s and Nordstroms that were so gorgeous I was kicking myself. I totally would have been a mall-gown bride if I wasn’t hustled off to a bridal shop with my mom!

I hadn’t heard of Asha Diamonds before. If you told me Asha Diamonds, I would assume it was a diamond retailer. I do agree, just say an online jewelry store. Most people are just making conversation, I don’t think they really would care of push for more info. I don’t know.

@Linds1769: techincally, that IS true!  The store sells dresses, it’s small, so it’s technically (in a twisted illogical kind of way) a small dress boutique!  (boutiques are just small stores :P)

As for the ring, I’d go with “we got it online” and leave it at that.  If you’re really into going green, then I wouldn’t be afraid to say what it is and WHY.  Diamonds are typically “blood diamonds” and in my opinion (and my FI’s) a racket to get as much money from you as possible. πŸ˜›  OUR OPINION. That’s all.

Besides, I’m not keen on the “real diamond” thing.  Or even diamonds period.  The first engagement ring EVER GIVEN was a sapphire.  And that is historically documented. I have a sapphire and LOVE it. 

I do not WANT a diamond because I know WAY too much about what goes on when their mined and HOW they are mined.  (research is not ALWAYS a good thing! LOL)

Unless people know you picked it out together, can’t you just say that your fiance got it for you and you don’t know where.

Ditto the PPs.  I’d just say “online” if you don’t want to get into a ton of details.  I wouldn’t lie about it though.  What’s the point.

And it’s a beautiful ring πŸ™‚
