Getting married because you love someone is so last year, this year it’s all about the size of the diamond.
That’s according to this young woman anyway, who turned down her boyfriend’s marriage proposal because the diamond on the ring was too small, The Mirror reported.
The poor guy had gone to some effort to put a ring on it as well, getting down on one knee while a troop of hired dancers performed an elaborate display for the lucky lady.
She initially appeared to be overcome by the moment, starting to cry as he made his move, but this emotion soon switched to anger as she was confronted by the size of the diamond.
One eyewitness to the event in Chengdu, China, told local TV: “Her eyes went wide as she put her hand over her mouth, and then she turned around and walked away without saying anything.”
Ice cold. And a screenshot of a conversation she had with a mate afterwards has been leaked, with her allegedly saying:
But he agreed to buy me a diamond ring as large as one carat.
Why was this one so small?
Is he so careless or has he ever cared about me?
Before the friend replies:
Perhaps the bigger one will be waiting for you later or he hasn’t prepared it for this time.
Sounds like a lucky escape to me, mate…
