*SORRY its so big, not sure how to decrease size lol*
The ring is 14kt white gold with 1/2 ct side diamonds, and has a Princess cut Topaz center stone. He’s giving it to me on Christmas Day. He states that he wanted to get me a ring for CMAS, but not use this ring as an engagement ring, because he wants me to have a 2 carot diamond engagement ring. I love the ring, and have expressed to him that the ring he’s getting me would suffice. Instead of it being an ENGAGEMENT ring, he’s calling it just an I LOVE YOU ring.. THoughts?

I really like the thought of an I love you ring. And it looks great, that colour is mesmerizing. Congratulations!

Damn girl, you get an “I love you” ring and an engagement ring? He’s a keeper! *hehe*
Seriously though, that is a stunning ring. I understand wanting this to be the ring he proposes to you with if you’re ready and waiting for him to proposal, but at least you have some fabulous bling to show off while you wait. 😉

@Chuggy: Wow, awfully snarky for your very first post.

@Linz1231: I agree!
Anyway, I think the ring is beautiful! I also think that your man is very sweet and obviously thinks you deserve the best.
However I think that if you want this to be an engagement ring, perhaps you can talk about that with him and discuss upgrading to the ring of your (his?? hehe) dreams in the future? 🙂

You can always wear this one on the right hand once you get the engagement ring. I think it’s beautiful!!

I love the ring.
But I’m here to say my honest opinion.
From what my fiance has told me a guy wanting to get you a “bigger engagement ring” is just an excuse for pushing back what he knows you want. He might not be ready and unsure how to say it. Of course, I dont’ know him – so use your gut instincts.

But I have to say, I have the same feelings as @adage.
If a guy is telling you he only wants to give you the 2 carat diamond ring, and you are telling him the one he’s buying will suffice – but he insists its an “I Love you”. He’s not on the same page. He’s pushing it off because he’s not ready, has concerns or something else.
Why not call it a promise ring if he plans on getting engaged?
That’s what my Dragon did. I got a promise ring. He originally wanted to propose a year later (and didn’t , which made me nervous) but ultimately did – saying he had car issues that caused him to delay paying off the ring.

@dragonlover: My husband wouldn’t propose to me unless he had the desired ring. He wanted to do it right and when he had the finances. He waited a bit after getting a job and then went out, and bought the ring. I can kind of see the OP’s boyfriend’s reasoning here. At the same time, he’s putting money into a nice ring which could be an engagement ring. Why couldn’t he waited a bit and just got the desired ring? I agree that he’s possibly stalling the OP or seeing if this ring will hold off engagement/marriage discussions awhile longer either to get the desired ring or not.

I have a feeling he’s using this to get your ring size!

@winerygirl: Ooo! Interesting theory!

Maybe he’s just using it as an excuse to figure out what size ring you wear…. just a thought!
