A woman was ruthlessly mocked for her minimalist engagement ring after posting a picture online.

Engagement rings are an odd concept. If you’re already going to get a wedding ring once you tie the knot, why do you need a symbolic ring to let everyone know that’s going to happen?

And once it does happen, why does the engagement ring not then come off? You’re not engaged anymore, you’re married.

If it were up to me, upon engagement, the engager would give the engagee a standard gold (or whatever) band, which would then have a diamond (or whatever) added to it after the wedding.

That makes more sense… sort of.

Anyway, one woman got bullied mercilessly on Facebook when she posted a picture of the engagement ring her and her boyfriend ordered, saying how much she loved it.

She captioned the photo:

My bf and I ordered my ring online and I am in LOVE with it!

Since then though, people were not impressed, and they absolutely didn’t keep their opinions to themselves.

To list a few of the comments, we have:

“Why even bother having a diamond there.”

“It’s so pitiful, I just can’t. It’s too sad.”

“I have assembled my colleagues of world class physicists and astronomers, we are building new instrumentation so we can see your f*cking ring.”

“I guess neither of you want anyone to know you’re engaged huh.”

“So take that keyring off your finger and show us the ring you ordered online.”

“You’ve got a smidge of tinfoil on your band.”

“All I can think is paper clip.”

The ring comes courtesy of JSV Concepts on Etsy, and is sold as a “minimalist” ring. There are three to choose from, in bronze, silver, and gold and they range from £71 to £125.

It is small, that’s for sure, but I actually quite like it. I worry that it would snap it you picked up a fork too aggressively, but objectively (or maybe subjectively), it looks nice.

Don’t bully people.
