It looks like a diamond to me, and it’s gorgeous. She’s just being rude.

If it makes you feel any better, my own mother did the same thing to me.

Maybe she’s only used to seeing round diamonds since they are the most popular?  She’s just rude.

dannij8918 :  I go to the gym with a gaggle of girls, we were all sitting round for coffee, one said to me I love your diamond, the other one went, diamond yeah right.  I just looked at her think wtf, she then went no fucking way, it’s massive let me see it.  Weird conversation but we all laughed and she brought the next coffees, crisis adverted.  Us uk bees, big rings are just not thought to be real, don’t take it to heart just enjoy your ring xx it’s gorgeous xx

Part of it could be the cut of an oval diamond. Most women wear either round or princess, so because the oval is more rare, I don’t think people are used to seeing how it’s cut. It doesn’t sparkle the same and the facets are just different.

Btw that was rude of her. Your ring is amazing! I’m not biased at all with my oval cut lol smile

dannij8918 :  I had a similar thing happen to me. I assume She hopes it’s fake so she can feel content in her own skin. Jealousy.

dannij8918 :  do you have a rose gold halo? Maybe that’s why she thought it wasn’t a diamond, I think (lately) people are so used to seeing silver bands with diamonds that anything else looks “different” to them. The colour of your band could also be contrasting with your diamond, causing it to appear a slightly different colour
