A bride-to-be has admitted she’s disappointed with her £5,000 diamond engagement ring because it’s ‘Small.’
Asking whether she could discuss with her partner how she feels, the woman took to Netmums revealing that her partner had organized the most beautiful proposal in Italy in August but got upset with the 0.8-carat solitaire diamond and platinum ring.
The unidentified woman wrote: ‘When my partner opened the box, the first thing I thought was its ‘Small’ and asked whether she should tell her fiancé.
With her reservations over the ring, the bride-to-be insisted she’s not ‘fickle or shallow.’

Asking whether she could discuss with her partner how she feels, the woman took to Netmums to explain everything
And expectedly, she got roundly criticized by other users on the platform and tagged ungrateful.
Giving more insight into the situation, the woman added: ‘My partner had it made from a reputable firm and it goes for just £5k. I understand this sounds awful, but for that money, surely I shouldn’t be feeling this way?
She further explained that her fiancé knew her friends had gotten 0.6 to 0.7ct diamond rings and had wanted to give her something she would be proud of. ‘ But mine looks very tiny as compared to my friends.’ She claimed.
The woman continued: ‘I am not a shallow or fickle human being I promise. I am a working-class and love my fiancé with all my heart. I am just struggling to get past this and being soul destroyingly honest in the hope someone can give me some advice’.
Users were quick to respond, with one saying: ‘Wow, am deeply sorry, but how ungrateful are you.’ A second added: ‘Working class or not, you come across as very spoilt and entitled. So, suck it up and be very grateful for what you have’
Users said the woman seemed ‘extremely ungrateful’ and she should keep the ring
A third plainly said: ‘Be grateful and don’t act like such a stuck up spoilt so and so and either split up or you love the ring as much as the person it came from and stop moaning about it.’
While a sympathetic user told Sarah she needed to have a ‘frank’ conversation with her fiancé
