    You totally handled it the right way.


    Then, scheming might-have-saids will also help you wash the bad flavor of it out of your mouth.


    I wouldn’t say anything. She doesn’t deserve to know if it’s not a diamond, not after she said that to you.

    EDIT: I mean, sapphires are gorgeous in their own right, but lying about it and using that lie to insult you, that is just WRONG. She needs to learn to embrace the sapphire.
    I can’t believe she was so rude! AND kudos to you for holding your tongue–that can be really hard for me at times.

    Agree with the others, I wouldn’t but I would put the little twat in her place in regards to her comment on my ring.

    I just read the update. Sounds like she definitely knew it wasn’t a diamond, and was trying to lie about it, AND make you insecure about yours. Nothing wrong with what she has–I’m sure it’s beautiful. But blatantly trying to pass it off as something else? Ridiculous. Being caught in a lie by your grandma? Even worse.

    I’m glad it happened to you and not me, because I probably would have been petty and called her out for it. You showed a lot of restraint. 

    But go grandma! That’s a pretty awesome story.

    You were definitely the bigger person in that situation! Go date twin! I would have lost it if someone said that to me.

    Confession: I have called someone out on their non-diamond ring.

    And I felt terrible about it. My friend who’s husband works with my fiance has a platinum ring with a fake diamond. That no one knew about…well her husband told my fiance and when we hung out she was bragging about her platinum band and compared the quality to my white gold band…

    that’s where I said, “I know this is weird to ask but is your diamond real?” and things got awkward fast. She said that no one was suppose to know…I wasn’t going to tell anyone. BUT I should NOT have asked!! It was so rude and I regret it. Looking back on it, I don’t care if her diamond is fake or real!

    Yeah yeah, two wrongs don’t make a right, but a wrong is still a wrong, yes? And in this case, the wrong is an insult, veiled yes, but still an insult. I may not call someone out on whether their ring is real or not, but I’d call them out in being insulting toward me and mine, and that is really what it comes down to. If this girl was caught up in the moment of the engagement, fine. But if she persists with her commentary in the future, I’d call her on that behavior and that alone.

    Edit: Update read. Karma has big, sharp, pointy teeth, don’t it? 😉
