With all of the talk of other people’s comments on our engagement rings, I am curious if anyone did not or does not like their e-ring? If you did not / do not like it, what did you do?
Luckily my FI got it right the first time : )

We picked mine out together. I love it! He had something else in mind, but when he saw my ring on my finger he said, "That’s it."

Nope, love it! He picked it out all by himself and surprised me with it. Everyone agrees he did a great job choosing something that was totally "me".

Ummm, I’ll bite. I’m not that crazy about mine. It’s fine. But not quite what I was looking for. I kept it. I didn’t want to hurt his feelings. I was not expecting him to propose. So needless to say, I didn’t go shopping with him. Or get the chance to hint at what I like.
What can I say? It’s part of his personality to just take charge and make a decision. It’s a really good trait to have for his job.

Mine wasn’t picked by either of us. It’s a family ring. We have carte blanche to do whatever we want with it, and while part of me wants to, the other part doesn’t. It’s a beautiful ring… multi-stone, plaitinum setting etc. It’s just not what I would have picked for myself. We both feel so guilty to feel otherwise. FI’s planning on buying me an anniversary band sooner rather than later and at that point I just might put the e-ring in the safe and save it for our kids!

I love mine! I actually say it and fell in love with it. But really didn’t say anything cause I thought he already had one. The next day he went and bought it for me! I didn’t know until the day he popped the question.

Eh…mine is ok. It’s pretty and I picked it out. But I think I was so excited about going ring shopping that I picked the first one I tried on, literally. I also feel like we paid way more than it is worth, and it doesn’t really fit my personality. But it’s the ring he put on my finger when we got married so now I’m emotionally attached. *sigh* What’s a girl to do?

I don’t love mine. I wanted something different and I didn’t know he bought a ring. We never talked about when we would get married and never looked at rings. He thought I would want a tiffany’s ring and so he bought a solitaire platinum, what he could afford 2 years ago when we got engaged. Needless to say he kind of knows I wanted something else now and so I am thinking I may get 2 wedding bands one for the front and one for the back of the ring. He said I should have spoke up sooner and we could have change the ring. too late now

I didn’t like mine, well I should say I loved the diamond and didn’t like the setting…and unforunately my face tells all. So he knew within a few hours of proposing. And after a few badgering sessions of "are you sure you like it?" I finally fessed up. And that was me back at the jewelry store the day after the proposal finding a new setting……yea

My FI actually designed my ring and had it custom made. Even though its really beautiful and I’ve received many comments on my ring – I don’t like it. I feel really bad because my FI worked so hard and put so much thought into my ring. Not to mention it has a real sapphire and diamonds, so I feel like I’m spoiled because I don’t like it. I like my ring…I just don’t love it and I feel bad. I feel like I can’t fully enjoy the ring and I actually hate showing it to people because its so different than what I would have chosen.
Also, I’ve been trying to find a band that will fit or match my ring and I can’t find anything! I’m considering buying another set but I don’t want to hurt my FI’s feelings so I feel stuck. =(

We looked at examples together and what he picked is just like what I said I wanted. I love my ring, don’t get me wrong. But now that I’ve seen all those crazy vintage styles out there, part of me wishes I had one like that too. Anniversaries, anyone? 🙂

While I love my ring, I wish he hadn’t been so quick to buy it. We went and looked once at like 2 or 3 places and that was about it. We didn’t look much at different stones or different settings, so he just went off what I liked that first day instead of us looking more into it. So, I didn’t really get to think much about the stone I wanted and all that and didn’t get to think about pros and cons of different settings. Because it’s a designer ring, I also feel like he paid a lot for the name and could have gotten something similar for less, or he could have put the extra money towards the stone. But, he did do a great job, I love him, and his thoughtfulness. It’s the ring he proposed with, so it’s the ring I’m going to have.
