Honest opinions about ring

My sister is divorced by recently got engaged again.  The guy is also divorced and a really nice guy.  However, he got her a gemstone engagement ring.  It's nice, but I feel like he cheaped out.  What do you think?  I think a diamond would have looked a lot classier...

  • I think you're being too judgmental.  Some people love gemstones and hate diamonds.  A lot of girls have gorgeous gemstone rings.

    What do you care, it is not your ring. I think you should keep your opinions to yourself and let your sister enjoy her engagement.
  • I actually pefer gemstones and I asked my FI not to get a diamond. We have always been told diamonds are what we want and need but it's just not true for all of us.

    As PP said, they aren't necessarily cheaper either. Rubies are incredibly expensive if you get a good quality and size.

    Maybe he just prefers colour or figured she would want something different. If he really did just gte something because it was cheap I guess it's up to your sister to decide if that matters.
  • I would have loved a gemstone, but my FI was set on a diamond.

    Its not your ring, so you don't really get a say. All that matters is what your sister thinks about it. If she's cool, then its all good.

    I think that if your sister is happy with the ring, then that's all that matters.  I also think that whether or not her ring is a diamond is none of your freaking business.

  • I have a gemstone e-ring, and I absolutely love it. Your sister probably loves her too. My H didn't "cheap out," he got what he knew I'd love. maybe your sister's FI was doing the same.

    Get off your high horse.
  • He totally cheaped out. He probably doesn't love your sister very much. Non diamond ring=not really committed. Duh.

    For shiit's sake. 

    I love how she had to mention that TWICE.

    Hey OP, would the gemstone ring be better for your sis if it came from Tiffany's?

  • You know what drives me crazy? When people put the apostrophe on Tiffany. It's Tiffany, and that's it. Nowhere on anything Tiffany sells does it ever use an apostrophe.

    Haha, I never even knew that LC.  But you know, we hicks up in No-Dak don't even HAVE Tiffany up in here.  And none of our friends are jealous of us because we are a little overweight, and they love when we talk about our life.

    Well I am overweight, don't drive, own a condo in LA, have tiffany's(for you LC) bracelet and necklace. My underwear almost never truly match my bra and I like my Clarkes and new balances. My friend are TOTALLY jealous of me. And so are all you!  Wink

  • and Sarah, I thought it was funny too :) I also don't mind that it's the cheapest thing in the store. Mignon Faget does stuff in silver every bit as neat as Tiffany and it's by and large, always cheaper. I much prefer Mignon to Tiffany.

  • I'm overweight, have a focus five speed, rent a shoe-box house, a hand me down diamond ring(that I love), my panties always match my bra, and I love my still fitting Army issue BCBs.  I don't know if my friends are jealous, I doubt it though because they're mostly guys.
