A lot of women dream of getting engaged one day, and some of them even envision certain scenarios when that day finally comes.
The engagement ring is one of the main focus in wedding proposals, and numerous women dream of receiving a large diamond engagement ring.
For instance, in August 2017, an anonymous woman shared her brutally honest thoughts about her engagement ring on a website called Mumsnet. She is one of the women who dreams of having a large diamond engagement ring, but was disappointed to receive a “small” one instead.
The woman belittled her fiancé for giving her a “small” diamond engagement ring. “DP proposed and presented me with the ring he’d chosen – a diamond solitaire in white gold. I was so happy and excited to accept but was disappointed when I first saw the ring. The first word that entered my head was ‘small’,” she said.
She criticized the ring saying, “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 colour of the gold, the setting, the small stone and relatively chunky shoulders.”
“His salary is nearing a 6 figure sum, and he’s usually very generous. Having seen the receipt I know he paid $1,674 for it – which is a lot less than I would have imagined he would have spent on such a significant piece of jewelry,” the woman added.
She continued, “He’ll be more disappointed in me for making a fuss over it when, in his eyes, it fits, and there’s nothing actually wrong with it rather than being disappointed that I’m not truly happy with it. Someone at work apparently told him that ‘if she makes it all about the ring, then she’s not the girl for you’.”
The woman concluded, “Ideally I would have loved for us to have chosen a ring together and made a special day finding one we both liked. As it’s something I’ll be wearing every day and is such a special piece of jewelry I wanted to really love it, and I just don’t. Has anyone else been in this situation? What did you do?”
