Hello!

A woman sharing her engagement ring online was hoping for ‘oohs and aahs’ and mountains of admiration. Instead, she got a virtual battering, with people calling her proposal ring cheap and tacky costume jewellery.

Recently, we shared a story about a woman complaining about her minuscule diamond. And now we’re talking the opposite end of the spectrum – about jewels that are just too big (is there really such a thing?).

The enormous purple stone was likened to a grape, knuckle duster and even a cockroach when it was shared in the Facebook group That’s It, I’m Ring Shaming.

The woman picked a colossal violet amethyst as the centrepiece of her ring, instead of a classic diamond. The jewel is described as being “over 40 carats” by the proud owner.

The wedding band has been designed to fit at the base of the gemstone and is dotted with more large amethysts.

People Were Not Impressed!

When the post was shared online, cruel comments came rolling in.

Many were amazed that the woman could actually lift her finger with the weight of the stone.

“She’s gonna have a buff a** finger,” said one commenter.

“Can she even bend her finger? That’s just so tacky looking,” said another.

“She takes that thing off and loses 5lbs,” added another critic.

A Bit Funny

The reactions were quite comical:

“Looks like the colour purple pooped all over her,” said one.

“Looks like it came from a cereal box! What the actual hell,”

and

“She has a helicopter pad on her finger.”

Another quipped: “It looks like princess plastic jewellery from the 25 cent bin.”

“I almost threw my phone and stomped it. I thought that was a roach on her hand,” shared one commenter.

According to the person who shared the image, the owner of the ring had been “humble-bragging” about its size and seemed really pleased with it. Good for her.

  • It’s not my kind of ring at all but… it’s to her liking and taste, so that’s for her to love.

  • The ring is not my style, but I would not be mean about someone else’s taste in rings. If she loves it then that is all that matters. Congratulate the person and move on!

  • In all honesty I don’t like it but it’s not my ring. If she loves it that’s all that matters.

  • Oh dear! Not to my taste but each to their own. My daughter loves it though.

  • It’s definitely not something I’d wear. I’d be too scared I’d scratch someone or myself. Anyway she’s the one who is wearing it but why did she need everyone to give her oohs and aahs?

  • Doesn’t matter what I think of this ring, as long as she likes it !
    In this weeks article there was a rather small ring and this is rather big.

  • It’s not my cup of tea but it doesn’t mean I’m going to slander this woman and her taste for it.

  • I like both rings. I think individually they would look even better! As long as she is happy with her ring that’s all that matters! I would say some people just need to keep their opinions to themselves, however, she did share it with the intent to hear what people had to say.

  • Every one should have a ring that they love. Doesn’t matter what any one else thinks at all!!!!

  • Not for me but if she’s super happy then that’s great!
    Better to be content than not.

  • I think it’s garish, but if she’s happy then my opinion shouldn’t matter.

  • If she likes that is all that matters.

  • I don’t like it but I wish her all the best.
