A heartbroken man has revealed that his wife is so ashamed of the three-carat engagement ring he bought her that she wears a rubber band on her finger instead.
TikTok user @tiktokarash shared the story with a short clip of his bride-to-be using her phone, writing: “My Persian wife is ashamed of her ‘small’ 3-carat diamond ring so she wears this rubber thing instead.”
The video has since gone viral, racking up 15.8 million views, with some social media users trying to reassure the bloke that her reason may not be because she’s ashamed and maybe for “security reasons”.
Another said: “Why to get a ring so big you’re afraid to wear it for fear of being robbed. Everyone is so extra these days.”
However, others believe he should get rid of the ring – or even her – if she won’t wear it.
One person quipped: “Take the ring back and let her wear the rubber band.”
Another joked: “Maybe you need a new wife that appreciates what you give and do for her.”
Others branded the incident a ‘red flag’ while someone else wrote: “You got a winner bro.”
The news comes after a man was left raging after he proposed to his girlfriend with a ring that she didn’t like despite the fact she had shown him pictures of the style.
The bride-to-be explained how she’s been with her fella for three years and had shown him pictures of chunky rings that she liked.
But she claimed the one he chose was small and made her finger look “like Michelin man.”

In the first few days, the woman wondered if she should lose weight to make it fit better, until she decided to just come clean.
She wrote: “He got really mad. I asked him why he bought this specific ring knowing what I liked. He said it was the ring his mum and grandma helped him pick out – they said the ring was nice.”
