16 Comments Women Got About Their Engagement Rings That Have Us Shook

Diply 15 Dec 2017

The other week my boyfriend and I were in a jewelry store looking for a bracelet to get my mom for Christmas. He wandered around and ended up by the engagement rings. Hello.

We went through the really expensive ones, decked out in diamonds, and eventually ended up by the solitaires. I was looking at a rose gold ring when he told me to try it on. Well, I mean, if you insist.

Now he knows what style I'm into and what size my finger is. If anyone badmouths my future engagement ring (that I better get this Christmas), I will literally fight them.

1. You're a child! You don't know anything!

That's fine if you don't personally like it, but maybe she does and that's all that counts. Your opinion of her ring couldn't matter any less.

2. You know diamonds aren't expensive anymore, right?

Whisper | Whisper

They're highly common and frankly, a little overused. Plus, if your fiance knows you prefer a certain gem over a diamond, I'd say they really do love you.

3. Maybe get rid of your friends instead of the ring.

Whisper | Whisper

What do you think of it? If you like it, than who cares?! Your friends aren't the ones who are wearing it.

4. Um...yikes.

Whisper | Whisper

Was it because you didn't like the ring, or because you didn't like his mom? Either way, probably not the best reaction, nor the one your man was hoping for.

5. You can't take a brother seriously, though.

Whisper | Whisper

It's their whole job to mess with you and I honestly wouldn't take his comment to heart. Unless you really did have an ugly engagement ring...

6. So, did he just ignore you then?

Whisper | Whisper

Or maybe he misunderstood and thought you were describing all the things you DO like. Sucks either way but also, your mother is very rude.

7. And so what if it does?

Whisper | Whisper

Just because something is a hand-me-down doesn't mean it can't be beautiful. If you both love it then forget what anyone else has to say about it.

8. Well, I hope you'd say yes.

Whisper | Whisper

Are you going to say no to someone you love just because you don't like the ring? That wouldn't be real love. Priorities, dear.

9. Why would you think she wants an engagement ring?

If anything could be worse than regifting, it's this. Regifting a ring she helped pick out for you? That's kinda horrible, to be honest.

10. Well, is the diamond too small, or did he really just ignore you?

Whisper | Whisper

It's not about the size of the ring, but if he asked for your opinion and then disregarded it entirely, that's another issue.

11. Maybe it's not meant for you!

Whisper | Whisper

You don't know how long he's had it or if he intends to give it to you any time soon. But I'd take this as an opportunity to subtly point out what you DO like in an engagement ring, just in case.

12. Yeah, I don't know what to say about this one...

Whisper | Whisper

At least you can pick the wedding bands together and get something you'll like, something that might enhance the engagement ring as well.

13. It's not about doing better, just about doing what they thought you'd like.

Whisper | Whisper

But since you said it first, yeah, you are shallow. How big does the ring need to be?

Load Comments

14. What does it look like then?

Whisper | Whisper

The only thing that makes something an engagement ring is if it's being used during a proposal. Do you really hate it that much?

Load Comments

15. Are you really just gonna go and pick a new one?

Whisper | Whisper

I really hope you discuss it with your fiance first. And I hope you don't tell him you hate it. And I hope you still appreciate the fact that he wants to marry you.

16. Mmmm...is it though?

Whisper | Whisper

Like, how ugly? If it's so bad then talk to your fiance and go together to look for one you'd enjoy wearing. Bunch of rude brides out here.
