Woman Needs Magnifying Glass To See Her Engagement Ring

Woman Needs Magnifying Glass To See Her Engagement Ring

They say size doesn’t matter. But perhaps you’d rethink that if you were on the receiving end of the world’s tiniest engagement ring. Does this bride-to-be have a right to be annoyed or should she just be grateful for what she receives?

When women post photos of their tiny engagement rings in order to embarrass their fiancés, commenters often side with the guy. Not this time. A post was shared recently on the subreddit r/weddingshaming from a very disgruntled fiancé showing a photo of what has to be the most minuscule diamond we’ve ever seen. 

As the caption says, this woman’s partner of eight years saved up to buy her this diamond ring and suffice to say she ain’t happy about it!

Now even if your mentality is ‘it’s the thought that you counts’ you have to admit this is one tiny ass ring. In fact commenters were quick to agree with the bride-to-be saying there’s no way she should put up with that.

Her whole point of sharing the post was to see if she was over reacting. Redditors believed she was not.

“I’m not materialistic when it comes to things like this but if my man proposed with THAT I would be full on insulted,” one user wrote. “There are nicer, more substantial rings than that for $200. He went out of his way to find the cheapest possible option; which to me says that he’s probably like that in every aspect of the relationship and will probably be like that in every aspect of their marriage.”

“While I have no idea what this costs, it doesn’t look like a ring one would need to save up for,” another added, “Honestly I feel like he’s probably lying about saving up for that ring.”

One person said: “My ring was $75 and it is the most beautiful thing I could have asked for. There is no excuse for the one in the pic.”

While another had some helpful advice: “My husband bought some jewelry for me that wasn’t my taste. I wanted to have an engagement ring I absolutely loved, so we picked it out together. We got engaged almost three years ago and I still stare at my ring every day because I absolutely adore it.”

Some did side with the partner and voiced their opinions saying the ring wasn’t THAT bad. In fact some Redditors said it was totally their vibe, simple and minimalist.

“I kinda like her ring,” one person wrote. “It’s very modern and sleek looking. I’d wearing that in a heartbeat.”

“It’s totally the kind of ring that I’d wear,” someone else added.

While one person insightfully added that perhaps it wasn’t the ‘ring’ that was the problem after all.

“When the ring is the issue, the ring is not the issue.”

Hmmm…interesting point. What do you think?
