Woman’s fury at ‘basic’ engagement ring
WHAT would you do if you found an engagement ring in your boyfriend's sock drawer (and hated it)?
Well, one woman took to Facebook to voice her disappointment after accidentally stumbling across her future engagement ring - and other users are not happy.
"Found this in the BF's nightstand. Not a fan.
"Please roast me then tell me how to tactfully say no you need to go get something different."
The Facebook post ended up being shared on Reddit - and users were not impressed at the woman's comments.
One wrote: "If I propose to my girl and she says she doesn't want to marry me because she doesn't think the ring is expensive/not pretty enough, I'm dumping her.
"Shows her true character."
While another horrified user wrote: "Girl that ring is worth more than you with that attitude."
"I still am amazed by how ungrateful someone can be when someone's willing to spend that much money on them," wrote one frustrated user.
Another said: "I used to work at a jewellery store, that looks almost like it's 1 carat.
"Those start at $1000."
Some users, however, did offer some advice to the woman.
One wrote: "So just to get some actual advice here.
"What if you actually don't like the ring and want a different one?
"Just say yes (because you love him and actually wanna marry him) and casually mention it like maybe a couple of days later?"
Another suggested: "Give him hints if yall have been talking about marriage.
"My (now) husband asked me what I liked.
"I told him a simple 1 carat solitaire (just a diamond and band).
"Then, I found an r2d2 ring, showed it to him thinking it would never happen; and I was lucky enough to get said nerd ring."
One admitted: "My husband proposed without a ring because he didn't know what I'd choose.
"It was excellent. When I eventually found one I liked he was all, 'Oh I never would have picked that'."
