I think your ring is beautiful and so classic!  I am sorry it isn’t what you wanted.  But I think it’s sweet that your FI wanted to buy you a diamond so he saved up.  I would be happy with it for now and then get a blingy wedding band.  You can even upgrade and add a halo for a future anniversary!

You could always get a wrap enhancer as your wedding band to make it a halo. Then you have the best of both woprlds…. the ring he chose for you AND the style you want.

it’s beautiful! I understand how you feel though. They have so many pretty wraps and ring guards now too…maybe you could find one that would look like your diamond has a halo? I have seen some like that.  I think a solitiare gives you so many options for your wedding ring/set.

Congrats!

Congratulation! Your ring is so beautiful, what he did is so sweet. It seams like he put a lot of thought into his decision. I agree with @HoneyBee827, you can always get a blingy band or change up your setting later.

Awww!  I think your ring is very pretty, and his heart was definitely in the right place.  I am betting that once you get used to wearing this ring, you’ll start seeing it as being “at home” on your finger and it will remind you of his sweet sentiment whenever you look at it…and eventually, you will forget your initial disappointment!  

Congratulations to you, and happy planning!  🙂

I think your ring is beautiful and his approach was so very sweet… but I would have been a little disappointed too. You had your heart set on a halo and on moissanite and he got you a diamond solitaire. I think you should give it a few weeks and see if you fall in love with this ring. If you’re still iffy, sit down and talk to him about it. 

If it helps, I have my heart set on a moissy halo as well and I’d be disappointed with a diamond solitaire. I would absolutely talk to him and explain that it would make you happy along with saving money.

The ring is gorgeous, but I absolutely understand being frustrated that you guys talked about it beforehand, had a budget and a style in mind, and then ended up with something totally different.

Does the jeweler have an upgrade policy for the setting?  If you can upgrade it at any time, I’d say wear it for a while and see if you start to love it, and if you don’t, broach the idea of trading it up.

I think your ring is gorgeous. If you would like a little more sparkle, save up for a blingy wedding band. Your FI sounds really sweet, like he tried to do the best for you he could.

He has invested in a lovely diamond for you and chose a very simple setting. It sounds like the diamond was the most important thing to him and that he may be open to you purchasing a new setting (e.g. a halo) to reset the lovely diamond he bought you in the future.

+1 to those saying to look for an enhancer/wrap to make the ring look like a halo ring.

OP, if you’re super distraught about it, feel free to bring it up with him in another week.  Try to give it a chance to grow on you.

Then again, I’m biased, because I have a Leo ring. 😉

Your ring is beautiful but I understand you disapointment if you were expecting something else. I think your ring is classic and timeless. I would just go for super bling (as PP’s have said) on your wedding band. If you still aren’t happy after that in a couple of years do you think you can get a halo added?

@-MONSTER-:  Your ring is gorgeous. Like PPs stated, consider a blingy wrap or wedding band. Later down the road you can always get it re-set. For now, enjoy your solitaire bling. It’s beautiful.

Aww that sucks sorry to hear it.

Moissanite isnt a “fake” diamond atall

its  man made jewel in its own right! If he had spent the same amount would you have gotten your halo in moissanite?
