Blogger criticized for her 'tiny' engagement ring does not care what the haters say

Who is anyone to judge?

We all have different tastes and styles and it still boggles our minds as to why people can't just accept that.

Some people like loads of jewellery and big, bright diamonds, while others prefer to go minimal, or forgo jewellery altogether.

That's why food blogger Jen Phanomrat hit back at fans after they slated her for her engagement ring.

9 years later, I said YES to my best friend! ❤️

Jen and her fiancé Leo Samanamud have been together for nine years and run the food blog together Just Eat Life.

However, after Jen posted a picture of her ring, users on Instagram started to comment on how small it was.

She received comments such as  "It must suck to wait nine years for a ring that looks like that," and "Are we all going to ignore how tiny that ring is smh."

Jen since turned off her comments on the post, but took to Facebook to hit back at the trollers and told Yahoo Lifestyle: “He knew exactly what type of ring I’d love. A delicate, hammered gold ring with a tiny pearl. I don’t usually wear any jewellery, but when I do, it’s simple and minimal.”

“I deleted many comment threads to ease the cycles of hate speech. What I couldn’t remove were the memes that people created and shared on Snapchat and Instagram.

“What Leo and I do want those people to know is that we mostly choose experiences over material things, and we encourage others to think about how they measure value in life."
