Hi bees! I was just wondering if you all think that both parties should like the ring set, or if it only matters that the one wearing them is happy. My DH likes my rings individually, but he does not like them all together. This is kind of upsetting to me, I am not terribly surprised because we have very different tastes but it still kind of upsets me. What would you do if your SO didn’t like the set you loved/already own and can’t return?

Yes he loves them. My wedding rings are a reflection of us and our marriage. My sentimental attachment to them would lessen if he didnt love them.

Yes and yes. He would have had no problem with me picking out a ring that he thought was hideous, but I would not have wanted to wear a ring that he didn’t like. We picked out my e-ring together, and we both think it was an excellent choice. We’ve also been looking at wedding bands for the past year, and while we both have told the other to get what they like, we’ve also both thrown our opinion in and asked the other what kind of ring they see us with.

He loves my rings, we picked both of our rings out together.

mrsmay07: I picked mine out. DH doesn’t know anything about jewelry or care, except that he wanted me to like them. I think the person wearing it should be the one to really love it!

Yes he likes them, and yes it was important to me that he liked them. He’s very into jewelry and honestly wears more rings than I do, so I wanted him to like them.

If we are talking strictly about how the rings look then yes DH likes them. Do I care if he likes them? No. I picked all three out because we both agree that mine is the only opinion that matters since I am the one wearing them forever. It’s nice that he likes them but it wouldn’t bother me if he didn’t.

My husband doesn’t really care about jewelry, so I wouldn’t say he “loves” them or even has an opinion about them. I would say it’s only the person who’s wearing them whose opinion matters.

Yeah, he likes them. He let me pick my own ring but I wasn’t going to get something he didn’t like.

FH doesn’t exactly love my rings, but he says they match me perfectly, which is why he bought them. FH doesn’t know anything about jewelry, so I don’t expect him to love them as much as I do, but it was a little important for him to like them for me.

FI doesn’t care what ring I have. He picked out what he thought I would like, and I do. So we both are happy. (:

my SO doesn’t really care at all. I’m sure he would barely notice if I decided to start wearing a different ring. that’s convenient for me though, I don’t have to worry about his opinion.

He told me to get what I wanted, but he is very picky about the quality of the diamonds. So I could get any style I liked, as long as the stones were pretty. Lol. Its funny because I love all diamonds and gemstones (I mean come on, they sparkle!) And he closely inspected everything we looked at. I ended up with a beautiful stone because if his pickyness, so I wont conplain. =) Hes very proud of my rings, which I think is adorable. Lol

Of course I care, he’s my partner. But his opinion doesn’t make or break it for me, I just appreciate his thoughts on my jewelry and clothes. He gives a great opinion about what looks good on me, since he looks at me the most 🙂 If he likes them individually, and too late to return or change, that’s enough for me to keep them even if he doesn’t love them together.

mrsmay07: This question is so weird to me – he picked out my engagement ring, isn’t that what usually happens? So of course he likes it!
