Engagement rings, in general, are one of the most beloved pieces of jewelry many women own. However, one woman has expressed her quite opposite feelings for the sparkler her fiancé gave her.
One newly engaged woman took to a forum site on Monday to complain that her husband-to-be didn’t spent enough money on her ring. “His salary is nearing a 6 figure sum and he’s usually very generous,” she explained. “Having seen the receipt I know he paid £1,300 ($1,671) for it — which is a lot less than I would have imagined he would have spent on such a significant piece of jewelry.
She added that while she was so happy to accept when he got down on one knee, she was disappointed upon seeing the ring. “The first word that entered my head was ‘small,’” she wrote. “There’s nothing to dislike about the type of ring per se, as a diamond solitaire would have been my choice, but it’s the whole thing — the color of the gold, the setting, the small stone and relatively chunky shoulders.”
Unsurprisingly, the user was quickly slammed by others who thought she was being selfish.
“Blimey. I’d have been delighted; talk about being ungrateful,” one person said. Another remarked, “if it’s simply not big and flashy enough … it sounds like you’re more interested in showing off the ring than you are in him.”
But it wasn’t all hate, with some people taking her side and defending her feelings. “You are the person who will be wearing the ring and having to look at it all day every day,” the commenter noted. “The cost is not as much of a factor, but you must be happy with the look of the ring.”
