I can appreciate that she’s putting in the work, but for her to say her wealth and privilege has nothing to do with her being able to become a lawyer is disingenuous and frankly insulting to those of us studying law who don’t have even a fraction of her resources.

Also same - but 1890, Nouveau, and great great grandma. It was from her third (!) marriage.
I mostly wear a $30 silicone ring though, because I am a makerspace teacher and I’m constantly rough on my hands. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

My fiance bought me a cheap Star Trek themed ring we got on clearance at a Box Lunch store (and recieved a free captain america waffle maker and a lightsaber hand mixer for it too). It has a beautiful topaz in it, but I’ve ALWAYS wanted a diamond ring. I wasnt going to complain about not getting a more expensive jewel Read more

I had so many women ask me “But don’t you feel weird? He didn’t have to go and pick a ring and pay it off?” Read more

“If Mr. James were white, the officer would not have doubted that Mr. James was an attorney, would not have questioned his identity, and certainly would not have detained Mr. James after seeing his driver’s license,” said Andrew D. Freeman, who is also representing James. “There is no plausible explanation other Read more

I pay cash for what my wife got, she loves it still after 12 years.  It looks nice, fits, and was the economically good decision at the time.  If I could have gotten something nice for free she would have loved that too.  People are so fucking weird about this shit.

My family has been in the jewelry business for over 100 years. One of my favorite things is to see a mother and son come in with an inherited family ring to have looked over and prepared for a marriage proposal. All engagement and wedding ring moments are beautiful, but there’s just something about jewelry passed down Read more

I had an inherited ring with no stone and it had to get fixed. Total cost of CZ + fix = $75. His ring was $125 at an antique shop. My husband felt terrible that he couldn’t afford to buy me a “real” diamond. It did not help that my ballerina roommate was engaged to a trust fund kid who gave her real diamonds for Read more

My husband gave me his grandma’s ring, which is nice, but I never wear it cause I’m not really the jewelry type, and when I do wear it, it’s huge and I bang it on things and feel terrible. Honestly, the fact that he paid $0 for the ring actually made me love him more.

I love vintage jewelry! Is it too personal to request a photo?

That is so weird! Why were they so invested in your fiance buying you a new ring? How does that affect their lives?  People are strange.

How ridiculous. Maybe they were just mad they had to buy and pay off rings.

I wear my late mother’s wedding ring and got a matching wedding band to wear with it. It’s not super fancy or big, but has sapphires surrounding it and in the band is is the only piece of jewelry I wear every day. Read more

Inherited rings are the best! I’m so surprised that people are so into the ring buying process. My husband and I have never made enough money that I would ever encourage him to spend his money on a piece of jewelry for me. Like, he has a lot of student loan debt. I would truly swoon if he somehow managed to pay a Read more

We used the stone from the otherwise damaged engagement ring my great aunt wore, and the new ring came out beyond our expectations, and definitely well under the budget we’d planned when thinking we’d need an entirely new ring. And better than that, the new ring now has a tangible connection to our family history, Read more

My husband gave me his grandmother’s ring, and it sits in my jewelry box because I have a field job where it’s completely impractical for me to wear daily. Hell, I didn’t even wear it when we were engaged. I would have been completely pissed at him if he wasted any money buying a ring.

Yeah but if you kick Ryan Adams out of the recording industry then who else is going to make mediocre albums that make me wish I’d just listened to the Flying Burrito Brothers instead?
