    does that mean "your ring is ugly" in a different way? .. :bigsmile:

    Ohhh, how cute = Ohhh, how ugly? how small?

    That is unique = that is a ugly?

    How about if they say that's really you...:read:

    cute does sound like it means small but maybe its best to give the 'admirer' the benifit of the doubt on that one
    unigue could be a complement depending on how excitted they say it .......

    It's often best not to try to give meaning to what others say. We all have different perspectives and backgrounds and one's "cute" could mean beautiful and not mean something less so. Though I can absolutely see where one might take "cute" when complimenting another's ring as not the best compliment. I think it best to just take a compliment at face value. After all your ring is gorgeous to you and that is all that matters. What others think about our ring shouldn't matter. (Unless they are PSers haha). Remember it's none of our business what others think of us (and our bling).

    As for unique again same reasoning. Take it in the spirit it was intended. All that matters is you love your ring.

    So, my fiance proposed in January with a 1.3 G Very Good GIA diamond in an uncomfortable 6 prong solitaire and my co-worker was like - it's huge!!! So she was impressed by the size. Obviously, he returned that ring and got me my BGD dream ring :love: a 1.17 G AGS VS2. So, she says "that ring is totally you." I think it was a slight undercurrent of diss, perhaps seeing the smaller size and other personal matter. I let the comment go, but this thread made me thing about it.
    But I agree with all, we can't read into what people say.

    Oh you're really sweet - thank you Missy. I'm going to go with that! Made me tear up a bit, it's been a trying time at work with confidence, so thank you.

    I would honestly laugh out loud if anyone said that to me as a criticism. I had a small original stone. No one ever commented. It also doesn't happen in my daughter's circles, so maybe it is more of a US thing? I would not use the word "cute" when complimenting someone's ER. That is not the right word to use. I would prefer to make someone's day by saying "Oh, your ER is beautiful!" Much more appropriate, and size does not matter.

    Well either is better than "breathtaking", after Seinfeld that word brings uncertainty!

    I think if people spontaneously make a compliment to my ring, all that they say is good. If I ask them about it, then “unique” or “cute” is definitely less-than-perfect. Jewelers have their own lingo, one has to know what “fine” really means.

    Just in case, it's best to return the compliment by picking out something about them and telling them that it is also cute, unique, or so them. :p

    The only person who has ever called one of my rings "cute" was a jeweler that I knew who saw The Brick right after I got the Kelege setting. Fvcker was so big and heavy I could barely lift my hand. To paraphrase Kenny, I guess peoples' definition of "cute" varies too!
