She revealed that it was her fiancé’s hair: “My boyfie is now my fiance! He proposed with a ring made from a lock of his own hair. This is a placeholder, until my more intricately woven band is done.”

But the overjoyed bride-to-be wasn’t prepared for the reaction from the internet.

The Sun reports that the photo made it onto Facebook group, ‘That’s It, I’m Ring Shaming’, where people slated the ring.

One person commented: “Did she pull his hair from the drain and just wrap it around her finger? Does he even know they are engaged?”

Another wrote: “No matter how much I love the dude I don’t think I’d ever in a million years wear his hair on my finger.”

Somebody asked: “Hair from what part of his body?”

While another person said: “She said more intricately woven. Omfg is there another hair ring coming?! Gold is not woven.”
