@Lo1Lo28:  it’s less than 50 bucks, I say buy it! men dont care about rings like we do, so he probably just doesn’t realize it’s a big deal to you. I’m not sure what advice to give, if he doesn’t want to be involved you can’t really force him other than maybe ask for a new ring for Christmas and give him some choices and explain you dont want to damage your promise ring anymore

It’s 40 bucks, just buy it.  😀  If it was 4000, then yea, maybe, but not 40 bucks.   I don’t think, especially now that your married and have joint accounts, that he should be responsible for paying for it.

@Lo1Lo28:  I would just go ahead and buy it.  You should love your ring–it’s on your finger, not his.  Guys aren’t into jewelery.  Period.

@Lo1Lo28:  if it’s $40, $400 or even $4000.  if you like it, and you have the money for it, buy it for yourself.

I agree with the others…for $40.00 buy it. Do you have pics of all the rings? Just me being curious..:)

@Lo1Lo28:  Saw your post right after you posted it, but refrained from commenting because I wasn’t sure how I felt about it.  I’m super-sentimental about the material “things” associated with my upcoming marriage; BUT, I can see your point as well.

I am happy to hear that the discussion with your DH went well, and that you together decided to order something that pleased you both.

So, now I’m stalking this post to see your new bling IRL!

Silver and CZ for $39… it won’t last very long. You’ll be in this same situation a year or two down the road.

Before you do anything, I’d get the wrap paid off (if it isn’t already).

@Lo1Lo28:  : OP have you considered moissanite? It is a simulant too but it will last forever (if the literature is to be believed) unlike cz which will look worn and cloudy. The down side of moissanite is that it’s more expensive than cz and not as white. However, lots of bee’s have moissanite here and love them.

Here is a link to some inexpensive moissy rings starting at $89, as I said you’ll pay a bit more now but won’t have to rebuy again next year. Thus in the long run you will save money:

I had a Swarovski crystal ring from Macy’s that I wound up returning because the stones completely clouded up after I washed my hands with the ring on. (I was in a hurry and forgot to take it off).  Hopefully it was just a flaw with my particular ring and nothing like that happens to yours.  This was a couple of years ago so hopefully they are better now.
