@Woobee:  There’s nothing wrong with your ring. It was purchased for you to enjoy, not for the adoration of others.

I’m not a fan of step cuts, but I will say that I think your ring is beautiful!

I’ve had my ring for about a month and a half, and I’ve only gotten a few compliments in person.  I have a kind of swirly, unusual design too which I find people either love or hate.  It doesn’t matter; my Fiance and I love my ring and those are the only opinions that count.

I understand wanting people to compliment you as I think it helps solidify your decision, but honestly, I rarely see or hear people comment on other people’s rings in real life.

I was eating lunch the other day at a local cafe and the woman dining at the table next to me had a gorgeous stone in a setting identical to mine. It was big and beautiful and I couldn’t stop staring so I complimented her and she was so excited to tell me it was asscher and tell me about the cut. She said it isn’t a super popular and no one ever really knows what to say to about it but that’s part of its charm! I think it’s a beautiful cut and it’s uniqueness is what makes it so special.

@Woobee:  Oh good lord. I thought they were in the first picture because I saw the sparkle and then the other picture looked like the band. I’m sorry to bring it up but I felt like I was going crazy because I couldn’t tell. Either way, it’s lovely!!!

The ring is absolutely stunning.

@Woobee:  I like it. But I think I might know why people aren’t commenting on it. It’s a very cool ring, but it’s not “pretty,” and it doesn’t really sparkle. When I saw the picture, I thought it looked like it was a completely metal ring. But again, it’s a nice ring, and if you love it, then ignore the less than enthusiastic responses.

Pretty ring… and as long as you love it, that is all that matters… people don’t realize how hurtful that can be.  But your ring is gorgeous, I didnt get many comments on mine because it was a simple 1 carat solitaire on a thin band… but since I have gotten married and added my own flair with my stackable bands, I have gotten MANY comments on how pretty and unique it is.  So go figure.

@Woobee:  I don’t know, maybe people are expecting to see a standard solitaire or a trendy pave band? I personally think your ring is fantastic. Seriously. I would wear it in a second.

This: “When I chose my ring I knew I could either get a ring that was a crowd pleaser or a ring that I loved and others would possibly scoff at… I chose one I love and if people don’t like it then they can be grateful they don’t have to wear it!”

I helped my SO choose the e-ring, and it is NOT traditional. It is a faceted pear-shaped moonstone set in silver πŸ™‚ I know that this is definitely not something that everyone is going to like – and I like that! I could have chosen a “crowd pleaser” but would it have been “me”? Nope. I’m not a diamond solitaire kinda gal, and as much as I want people to ooh and ahh and give me attention, I also enjoy standing out and being different. If people don’t like it… good! It means my ring is not made for mass-appeal.

So embrace that πŸ™‚ And stop shopping!
