Bride-to-be mocked for engagement ring that looks like 'genital wart'
When it comes to the whole thorny subject of wedding aesthetics, it's safe to say that people have differing opinions. A dress that one bride finds gorgeous might seem repulsive and tacky to someone else. The wedding vows that one couple thinks are heartfelt could come across as sickeningly-sweet to another couple.
As for engagement rings, they're a whole other can of worms. Do you opt for a simple gold band and diamond, or do you get some gaudy piece of jewellery with a massive diamond, five rubies, and a single sapphire? It all depends on your personal taste, and how much money you're willing to fork out.
However, every once in a while, a ring comes along that's so ugly and so unappealing, that internet users are actually united by how much they dislike it. This is one of those rings. Check it out:
The picture above comes courtesy of the Facebook group That's It, I'm Ring Shaming - a group that's devoted to mocking what they see as tasteless wedding and engagement rings.
This week, the group was bowled over when a social media user shared an image of their engagement ring, claiming that it was a treasured family heirloom and that they wanted to know what the public thought about it.
Opting to open a floodgate of abuse, the woman named Abigail captioned her image:
"This is my great-grandmother's engagement ring, and I can't think of anything wrong with it. BUT, this group entertains the S*** out of me, so I want to hear what you'd say about it. Note: my hideous hands are fair game."
Suffice to say, the public didn't hold back, with many comparing the incongruous design of the trinket to a gold-embossed sphincter. For instance, one person wrote: "I'm sure your great grandmother is a wonderful woman. However, your great grandfather better answer for this fashion crime."
Meanwhile, someone else chimed in: "It looks like a bedazzled bootyhole and those prongs around the world's saddest diamond flakes definitely aren't helping the aesthetic."
And one person summed up a lot of people's thoughts when he commented: "If a genital wart became a ring.... that would be the ring."
However, this isn't the first time the group has roasted an engagement ring. In the past, they mocked someone else because they thought their ring was too tiny. I guess there's no pleasing some people...
