Ebony’s Wedding! Ring Wars

6 Feb

Hi, hope everyone is having an amazing start to the week so far.

When I got engaged, lovely Debs asked me to write blog posts about what it feels like to be engaged and I wondered what I would possibly blog about until this incident occurred.

My lovely fiance bought me the perfect engagement ring and I absolutely love it. The thing is, before I got engaged, even now, I knew/know nothing about diamonds or rings. I just wanted something that was timeless and that was what I got, although I must say it is a rock!

Most people who have seen my ring love it and say he did a great job picking the ring himself. But I have never heard anyone say to a newly engaged person “Oh boy, that ring is foul! What was he thinking?” Everyone oohs and ahhs about the ring and yes, I am guilty of doing the same to other women too. Like I said, I had no idea what an expensive ring looked like or what the 4 c’s to a diamond meant physically, so every engagement ring was perfect and beautiful to me, and well sometimes, I lied! ūüė¶

So obviously, every girl says they have the perfect ring and I have no objections to that. However, what I do not appreciate is picking on my ‘pinkie’. ¬†YES!¬†My ring has a name!¬†I think it is very distasteful and simply low of a lady!

So the story goes like this: ¬†My pinkie was sitting gently, sparkling away and causing no trouble, when this newly engaged lady started blabbing about her ring and how her fiance got it perfect…¬†yadeyah. Now, I’m sitting there genuinely thinking “aww that is sweet”, despite the fact over the course of the time I have known her, she has ermmm… For lack of a better word, rubbed me up the wrong way!¬†Basically, I won’t be calling her my friend any time soon. ¬†Anyway, she went on to guess how many carats the diamond on my ring was. I was genuinely fascinated because she was only 0.05 of a carat out. I asked her how she knew and she said she had always been particular about rings and her fiance got her a smaller stone but it is perfect because he had a budget he was working with and he had to compromise between getting her a flawless stone or more carats… Blah blah BLAH!

At this point I am thinking… “who cares?” Plus she doesn’t know whether or not my ring is flawless, but I am not going to sit down and discuss my pinkie with her because I don’t think it is a good use of my time. She went on to say “…anything bigger would have been excessive, it would look out of place… etc etc…” Hello!!!¬†Because pinkie is bigger than yours, you’re saying it is excessive??¬†*sigh* I made no comment, I let it slide because I know that my pinkie is beautiful and compliments me just fine!

Word to the wise: if you don’t have anything nice to say about someone’s engagement ring, don’t say anything at all! ¬†This is war! ¬†RING WAR!
