i had one say to my face that she didnt want anything less than half a carat and anything less would be shit … this was moments after i showed her my .40 carat solitaire with tiny diamonds on the band.

Hubby and i couldnt afford to go all out on a ring and i was happy with whatever he gave me because at the end of the day it is just a ring.


people can get really crazy over rings, i just do not understand it.

A real housewife of the chicago suburbs (ha ha) told me my ring was “so cute!” Which for some reason really made me mad, like it’s an arts and crafts project my fiance made himself. 

(I have a 1.5c solitare)

So I got my first rude ring comment the other day! Well, it was more throwing shade at me personally than at my ring, tbh.

I saw a lady at church who I haven’t seen in a year. She asked to see my “bling” and then when she looked at it, she said, “So, you’re on your second one of these now, right?” (Back story: I was engaged before. In high school. To an abusive teenage douchebag.) I laughed awkwardly and said “Yeah,” and she said “The first one was a lot bigger” and walked away.

Yeah… cause the first one cost $20 at Claire’s. What the ass?!

pastelsandpink:  This exact thing happened to me! My friend took one look at my ring and looked at her boyfriend and went “you’d never buy me anything that small right?” I had even been considering asking her to be a bridesmaid at the time but that comment ruined her for me!

My boss: “Wow – I can’t believe he bought that with a police officer’s salary and you two had just graduated undergrad. Are you sure it’s a real diamond?” Listen lady – you know nothing about our financial situation nor is it any of your damn business. Go fly a kite.

l live in UK and diamond size of engagement ring is much smaller compares to US… Mine is pear shaped halo so it appears bigger than average size in UK. My friend said “People might think your engagement ring is fake because it’s too big and its design.” l was very saddened to hear that comment……

“Isn’t it a bit big?”–commenting on how people will notice it’s fake (which it is). I don’t mind people thinking it is fake since that is the truth, but just saying something like “It’s nice!” would’ve sufficed.

“Did you really need to put all those tiny diamonds?” – An aunt, about my halo and micropavé

“The halo makes it look a bit too much!” – a guy friend whose idea of an e-ring is a plain band solitaire

“You have a car on your finger!” – a schoolmate

“You should get a plain band, because if you get an eternity ring you’re going to look like a Kardashian!” – another schoolmate


FWIW, I have a 1.01 with a tiny halo, and a 1.8mm super thin band, so no, it’s def not too much. And I’m getting an eternity ring no matter what they say because you can’t have too much sparkly! :))
