A woman received her boyfriend’s grandmother’s ring as her engagement ring and she immediately posted it on Facebook. After that, the reactions were all over the place. The post became viral and it was shared on Reddit by Mortadelllla.
“My boyfriend finally asked me to marry him and this is really what he gives me… he pulled it out of his pocket and it took just everything in me to not laugh and question whether this was real life or not LMAO”, the girlfriend wrote in her Facebook post.
“I’ve had it for a few days now, and I’ve gotten used to it so I don’t think it’s bad so bad… but also maybe I’ve just come to terms with it. I definitely with it was something different, but oh well… it was his grandmothers and the pearl is my birthstone and I think that’s the only reason I’ve been able to tolerate it.”
A huge number of people didn’t like the ring and they also didn’t like the fact that it was shared so openly on Facebook as things like this should be discussed in private.
Here are some of the best comments:
“As a guy this may be an unpopular opinion, but that’s not a ring you ask someone to marrry you with. I’m not saying because its cheap. It is a beautiful antique ring no doubt.”“You don’t have to spend a lot to get a nice ring. That however is not a nice ring.”
“So yes, she was trashy for posting this on FB, but I agree that is not an engagement ring.”
“As a woman, I agree. This is a milestone anniversary ring that you only take out and wear on occasions where it’s appropriate. I like pearls, so I don’t hate the ring itself, but I sure as sh*t wouldn’t wear it every day.”
“To be fair, that is a hideous piece of costume jewelry.”
“FYI, this was posted specifically in a FB group about engagement rings. It was not on her timeline for her fiance and his family to see. Imo it is harsh, but then again, the ring is ugly. If my fiance had proposed with a ring like that one, I’d have asked him to return it so we could go pick out a ring we both like. You really ought to like your wedding/engagement rings because you’ll be wearing them every day of your life and you may even be buried with them.”
“The ring is ugly. I would hope they could talk about it and come to the same conclusion. The fact that it’s an antique heirloom ring is nice, the fact that her birth stone is pearl is also good. But the ring itself is ugly.”
“I’m a guy and tend not to have an opinion one way or another about jewelry, but that is definitely an old lady ring.”
“It would seem logical to account this as an engagement ring, and then get another ring as the daily wear indicator of engagement. As this ring is certainly not a daily-wearer.”
“My fiancee’s favorite ring is a $20 ring I got on Amazon.”
