I am very young. But we have been married for almost 3 years in June. I have a friend who is 18 and just got engaged, she will also be married in June. I am her Maid/Matron of Honor and I am very happy for her. Her fiancé set a budget for her on rings and it was around $500 we looked and looked but we couldn’t find anything she liked in that price range. Her grandmother then offered my friend her great grandmothers gorgeous ring! She sent me a picture and it really is beautiful! I told her so. I also said yay for vintage rings and grandmas! (When I lost my original set my grandmother sold me an old set for $150. She asked to see my set and I sent her a picture. She said ‘I’m so jealous, yours has more diamonds. Uh, okay? She grew up rich and just moved out of her fathers huge house a month ago and is now on a budget with her guy because he is the only one working (she is still in cosmetology school, that’s how we met) so I just chalked it up to being one of the things she’s naive about. I brushed it off and moved on.
The next day she texted me and says hey, how would you feel about trading rings? WHAT? I know they aren’t my original rings that had the most sentimental value but I lost those and had to deal with that. These are MY rings. I said no, and then she offers to pay me $500 for them. It freaked me out and made me really sad because I couldn’t not imagine giving away my great grandmothers rings..and I’m sure her family and fiancé would be upset of they knew she was doing that. It freaked me out I finally got her to stop asking but now I feel like the friendship is awkward. An I overreacting?

It’s resolved now: you both agree that you aren’t trading or selling them to her. So I’d just continue with the friemdship where it left off before this whole ring trade conversation.

Just say no and forget it. It’s weird and rude that she asked, but if she is you BFF I’m sure she didn’t mean anything by it.

I wouldnt be freaked out! I would just let it go. If she says something again then I would just let her know that these rings mean a lot because they are your grandmothers and as beautiful as hers are you would never be able to do that!

I would try to ignore it and move on, but I think it would remain in my mind for a while anyway. That’s so weird.

This is bizarre. I would just try to ignore it and pretend it didn’t happen.

Its weird, but I wouldnt dwell on it. As long as she doesnt ask anymore, I dont think its that big of a deal. My best friend actually told me that she should have my ring and I should take hers because I got an amethyst and thats her birthstone. I dont think she was being serious, though she has said something about it a few times.

I would probably delete the picture of her ring. You never know, she may find this site and that picture.

Like I said in your other post:
“Wow what? I would tell her no and tell her she is crazy for even suggesting that.”

Your friend is really strange. Girl’s got some issues if she thinks it’s okay to buy your rings off your finger.

she can always buy a wrap in the future to enhance her ring.

sorry about that! I was posting on my phone and before I hit post my phone closed the window and then I couldn’t find it, so I reposted it.

Hey guys, this is a duplicate post so I’m going to direct everyone to the original here:
Would you be freaked out?
