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 fiancÃ© gave her.
One newly engaged woman took to aÂ forum site on Monday to complain that her husband-to-be didnâ€™tÂ spent enough money on her ring. â€œHis salary is nearing a 6 figure sum and heâ€™s usually very generous,â€ she explained. â€œHaving seen the receipt I know he paid Â£1,300 ($1,671) for it â€” 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,Â she was disappointed upon seeing the ring. â€œThe first word that entered my head was â€˜small,â€™â€ she wrote.Â â€œThereâ€™s nothing to dislike about the type of ring per se, as a diamond solitaire would have been my choice, but itâ€™s the whole thing â€” the color of the gold, the setting, the small stone and relatively chunky shoulders.â€
Unsurprisingly, the user was quickly slammed by others who thought she was being selfish.
â€œBlimey. Iâ€™d have been delighted; talk about being ungrateful,â€ one person said. Another remarked, â€œif itâ€™s simply not big and flashy enough â€¦ it sounds like youâ€™re more interested in showing off the ring than you are in him.â€
But it wasnâ€™t all hate, with some people taking her side and defending her feelings. â€œYou are the person who will be wearing the ring and having to look at it all day every day,â€ the commenter noted. â€œThe cost is not as much of a factor, but you must be happy with the look of the ring.â€
