Wife faces conflict after discovering her husband lied about diamond ring

A woman has taken to the internet for help after coming to the realisation that her engagement ring might be made out of fake diamonds!

"My husband has always said it is a diamond and made comments about how much it set him back," she began. "Several people have said it's worth a fortune... A few weeks ago someone said it must be 15-20k worth of diamond."

"I was at a dinner and a friend's husband who's a jeweller noticed the ring made a huge fuss of it," she continued. "His wife compared her ring which was half the size and then they chatted quietly to each other looking at the two rings and looked at me with what I can only describe as mixture of sympathy and confusion as they gave it back."

"I probably shouldn't have done this but it's been playing on my mind, I know the name of the store so I just looked it up."

After spending some time doing some research, she came to the conclusion her engagement ring was a fake.

"I feel a bit uncomfortable now wearing a massive flashy attention seeking fake ring and pretending it's a diamond," she added. "I don't know much about diamonds, obviously. However other people do and I feel a bit embarrassed to wear it now I know."

"I have happily worn it for two years and I don't want to upset him or be ungrateful for what is still a lovely and expensive ring," she concluded. "Do I ask him about it or just carry on wearing it, the majority of people won't examine it and I'd guess most won't realise so does it really matter anyway."

What do you think the woman should do in this situation?
