A woman’s treasured engagement ring has been blasted on Facebook as the ‘ugliest thing’ users ‘have ever seen’ after she bravely shared images of the chunky bauble in a ring-shaming group.
The Missouri-based woman proudly posted images of her bling in the group That’s It, I’m Ring Shaming; a notorious private forum where users trash other people’s engagement rings, both those posted by the owners, and those in images found elsewhere.
But while the group has been filled with funky-looking accessories, this particular ring has been hailed by many as the ‘fugliest’ to ever be posted in the forum, with users comparing it to everything from a ‘fountain’ to a ‘penis’.
Bling bling: A woman has been mocked for her engagement rock, which members of the relentless ‘That’s It, I’m Ring Shaming’ group have deemed ‘the ugliest ever’
Bling thing: The woman confessed that she has been wearing the jewel for eight years now
Substantial: The good humored original poster, a mom-of-three from Missouri, took the trolling in good spirits saying she and her husband got a laugh from the comments
Luckily the cosmetologist who shared pictures of the jewelry, which she has been wearing for eight years, took the comments in good humor and said that both she and her husband ‘had a lot of laughs’ over the hate.
In her caption, the mom-of-three said that she has ‘never seen anything like’ her own ring.
However, users picked up on this point and said it was likely for good reason.
‘… that’s because they can only make a mistake this bad once,’ a user dissed in response.
‘I know why you’ve never seen anything like it…after they made that one they destroyed the model cause its so f**king ugly,’ another commentor fired.
‘Can you not get it off? Just wondering why the f**k you’ve been wearing this for eight years,’ laughed another user.
‘Did you get that at Liberace’s yard sale,’ one person questioned.
‘It’s like if Las Vegas was a ring,’ said another.
Others simply dissed it as ‘fugly’, while some compared the unique shape to everything from a ‘butt plug’ to a ‘penis’ to ‘ovaries’. Another commented: ‘Why are you wearing a fountain on your finger???’
Dazzling: Social media users dragged the owner for the ring which they deemed ‘Las Vegas tacky’ and like ‘tinfoil’
The original poster was also told that she was among the top contenders for ‘ugliest ring ever shared’ in the group.
‘This is literally the ugliest f*****g ring I’ve ever seen,’ one person wrote.
Awkward: The ring’s owner confessed that she has ripped plenty of gloves on the bauble
‘I think we’ve done it guys, we’ve seen the worst ring ever made. We can archive the group.’
Despite knowing that her jewelry was going to be slammed by the silver-tongued users in the Facebook group, the original poster did take the time to defend elements of her sentimental jewelry.
‘I doubt anyone cares, but the setting was purchased on eBay from China while my husband and I were both in college with two young kids on a tight budget,’ she wrote.
‘The center stone (originally a solitaire) ￼I bought … when I was single/gift to myself after a bad divorce.
‘The jeweler that set the two together told us it was a shame a nice stone was going into such a cheap settling.
‘It’s a tall boy and I rip a lot of gloves at work,’ she added. ‘It surprisingly doesn’t get caught on anything, besides gloves.’
With over 200 comments running the gamut from amused to disgusted, there were some rather hilarious comparisons in the mix.
Haters gon’ hate: The ring attracted major trolling in the private group, which has 25,000 members
‘Was the inspiration for this the Caesar palace fountain,’ asked one person.
‘Is the side view supposed to look like an upside down uterus and ovaries,’ demanded another.
‘For when you want to put some extra bling and sting into that backhanded pimp slap,’ one woman speculated.
One person added: ‘Why do you have a WWE belt on your f**king finger?’
The ring was also likened to a Transformer, Tinfoil, a Superbowl ring, and a ‘Christmas ornament from the 1990s’.
‘I’d call it a horcrux but Voldemort has better taste than this,’ concluded one woman.
Thankfully, the woman who shared the ring in the group got plenty of laughs from the reactions, later updating her post to say: ‘Glad you guys enjoyed it! My husband and I had lots of laughs!’
