I noticed my FI secretly proud of my e-ring. Haha, he always make it sounds like I’m the one who are obsess with my rock (which I do privately)
Then I noticed he always want to jokingly tell others about my ring… funny thing is he dun remember the spec as I am the one who pick out the diamond and setting LOL
I have to correct him each time, yet he still brag about it like he was forced to buy it :p

My FI is extremely proud of my ring, lol. He knows all the specs, spent a TON of time picking it out (compared I think 10 diamonds to find the perfect one), went to 5 or 6 stores looking for the perfect setting. He loves to take my hand, point at my ring and say “I got that for you.” It’s so cheesey and adorable, I love how proud he is of himself, he got my dream ring too!

@gpiglet: My FI is very proud of the ring too – it’s an heirloom and he loves the continuity of family it represents, as well as being quite pleased with the specs! 🙂

My FI is very proud. It’s very endearing. The night he proposed he kept going “did you send so and so a picture of your ring yet, what about so and so?”
I am very proud of it too 🙂

@gpiglet: Lol it’s no secret with my FI he’s sooo proud of himself. Every time someone compliments the ring he’s pretty much all smiles. When we’re together he looks at my hand alot. But he’s just as proud of his own ring lmao. He wears it proudly everyday.He asked me if guys wear e-rings & I told him if he wants one it’s no problem with me. He got a sterling silver ring and even though we are suppose to go looking for his band in a few weeks he says he might just use that one.

@gpiglet: ever since our engagement, my FI’s profile pic on Facebook has been my ring. SIGH. It’s so embarrassing but I guess he’s proud and at least it isn’t ME with the picture!

I hear you. It’s a bit embarrassing when he try to talk about my ring with others. I have to smack him the other night… he has a huge family that his nieces only 5 yrs younger than me.
I knew I have better rock and I secretly stare at her hand (I can’t stop looking at diamonds, love bling) Then he is stupid enough trying to do a diamond talk with her and her bf. I have to cut him off and change topic ai…
I only talk about spec with girlfriend that truely appreciate diamonds and have better rock than mine…

My husband knows nothing about my ring, but that’s cool because I don’t either. It’s an heirloom design and diamonds with a new white gold setting. I know that the clarity is VVS1 and I think the color is E, but otherwise, I know nothing.
He’s happy I like it though and also happy that he only had to pay like $700 to get it reset instead of spending the $4500ish it’s worth.

FI is definitely proud of my ring. He put a lot of thought, time and effort in to it, and it shows! He will notice it sparkling under certain lights and make comments about how it “really is a good looking ring”. I think he is adorable, and I agree 🙂

Secretly? No. He is openly proud of my upgrade lol! We went to a party a few weeks ago and he made all his friends look at it. It was kind of embarrassing for me, because I don’t like attention, but he was just so giddy I just gave in haha. That and his friends are really chill so I wasn’t concerned that we’d come off as “braggy” or something. Oh and whenenver we’re at a restaurant and it has good lighting he likes to look at it or if we’re holding hands he’ll play with it. I love that he loves it.

Originally, no. He saw the ring as a failure. He hated it. He gave me a solitaire in a plain white gold band — The ring he wanted to propose with, his mother talked him out of. She told him I’d hate it and that I needed to pick my own ring out.
So, he didn’t get the ring he loved and proposed to me with a plain band. Of which I loved, so it drove that spike further into his heart.
Later, I custom designed an engagement ring and matching wedding band. We both love it, and he was proud that I have a ring now we both love. I would have been content with the plain white band, but my husband’s happiness is worth more to me than any ring in the world. Compromise is what makes a marriage work.

He is, but in a quiet way. He will drop comments about how mine is the prettiest one he has ever seen.
He is a jeweler so he has helped many of our friends put together engagement rings and he has firmly maintained that mine is the most beautiful to him. Which I think is really cute.

He is very proud of my ring, even though I picked it. He’s proud that I got to pick exactly what I wanted and that he could get it for me. He loves to take my hand and make the ring ‘sparkle’ haha. It’s pretty cute.
