Are you not comfortable saying you got it from ashadiamonds.com?

Big chain jewelers aren’t for everyone (myself included). You shouldn’t feel weird/bad just because you guys went in another direction.

Well first of all, I think your ring is gorgeous! Congratulations on getting engaged!!! We’re so happy to have you here.

I think you should tell people whatever you are comfortable with. You could simply tell them that he custom ordered it online. That’s the truth, but without too much detail.

I’d be uncomfortable lying outright, but that’s just me.  I just tell people where mine came from, but if you’d rather not disclose that, I would say just so! You could trying something along the lines of  “Does it matter?” or “oh my gosh! I guess I don’t know/care” or “why do you care, nosy?! None of your business!”

People are overly curious about weird things, and sometimes you need to call them on it, I think. I get “how did you afford that on your student budget?” a lot–like that’s any of their business? People are strange.

Just say the truth. He got it from Asha Diamonds. I dont know why people even ask where did you get it from. I don’t think its anyone else business if you have a 10 dollar ring or 10k as long as you both are happy with it thats all that matters =)!

i think it’s beautiful! i’ve actually never heard of asha so it’s possible that plenty of other people haven’t either. although just saying that he ordered it online is a fine “out.” i can’t believe everyone is asking him where it is from in the first place–unless someone is asking because they are interested in the same ring, it’s none of their business really.

I agree, I think it’s super pretty and would love to see pics on your hand.  I’m actually pretty surprised that anyone asked you where you got it at?  That seems kind of rude to me…but I guess if it’s your mom that’s a bit different.  I think what a previous poster stated, “he customed ordered it online” is a great way to tell the truth without too many details.

Just say it’s from an online jewelry store. That isn’t a lie.

Whenever people ask me how big my diamond is I just say “I don’t know” so you could do that! The girl doesn’t have to have the answers and it’s a rude question for people to ask anyway.

I say “I don’t know” when people ask me where my Fiance got my ring. I think it’s rude to ask.

I don’t understand what the problem is with telling them where you got it? Is there something I’m missing about Asha diamonds? I think as long as you and your Fiance are happy with it, who cares what anyone else thinks?

 

If you really don’t want to tell people, you could just change the subject with a joke like “Why want to be ring twinsies??”

I am shocked that people are asking where you got the ring from! I think just saying “online” is very appropriate, but if they are nosey enough to ask where it was from, then they may have the nerve to ask what website. Your ring is beautiful! Congrats on your engagement!
