One disgruntled bride-to-be found the receipt to her engagement ring and slammed her fiancé online after seeing the “small” amount he spent on her.
Taking to Mumsnet, the woman – who remained anonymous – said how disappointed she was with the diamond.
In a now-deleted post, she wrote: “DP (dear partner) proposed and presented me with the ring he'd chosen – a diamond solitaire in white gold. I was so happy and excited to accept but was disappointed when I first saw the ring. The first word that entered my head was 'small'.
“There's nothing to dislike about the type of ring per se, as a diamond solitaire would have been my choice, but it's the whole thing – the colour of the gold, the setting, the small stone and relatively chunky shoulders.
"His salary is nearing a six-figure sum and he's usually very generous. Having seen the receipt I know he paid £1,300 for it – which is a lot less than I would have imagined he would have spent on such a significant piece of jewelry.”
I was so happy and excited to accept but was disappointed when I first saw the ring. The first word that entered my head was 'small'.
The bride said that somebody at work told her husband that “if she makes it all about the ring, then she's not the girl for you”.
She continued: "Ideally I would have loved for us to have chosen a ring together and made a special day finding one we both liked. As it's something I'll be wearing every day and is such a special piece of jewellery I wanted to really love it and I just don't.
"Has anyone else been in this situation? What did you do?"
The post definitely sparked a reaction, with mums on each side weighing in on the debate.
One slated her and said: "I think you sound grabby. Why is it about the size of the diamond? He's making a commitment to you. It doesn't have to be about money or 'flashiness.'"
However, some women were on her side.
One user wrote: "You are the person who will be wearing the ring and having to look at it all day every day.
“The cost is not as much of a factor but you must be happy with the look of the ring. Just tell him you are not keen on the setting and you would prefer to choose another ring together."
And another said: "There's no way on Earth I'd allow someone else [to] choose a piece of jewellery for me that I'd potentially be wearing for decades. I wouldn't even let my partner choose this year's winter coat."
