My fiance called me tonight and said we “needed to talk”. I never know what’s going to come out of his mouth. He says that he wants to exchange my diamond for one with better clarity. I was like, really? I love my ring and diamond there’s no need to change it 🙂 But he came this weekend and started staring at my ring. You can see a small dot on one side but that’s the only thing you can see with the naked eye. It never bothered me… but apparently it bothers him.
He already looked at diamonds from our jeweler and said he can buy the same size with a better clarity for “a few hundred dollars more”. He can’t stand the dot on the side of my diamond and said he can do better than that, and that he was rushed into buying it because he just wanted to be engaged. (He spent about 6 months paying for it).
I told him he can do whatever he wants to, but that I love my diamond and never had a problem with it. Isn’t that weird? He seemed so distressed over the whole situation. He’s so cute!

If he’s anything like my man, he’s annoyed that 1) you don’t have the best that he can give you and 2) he didn’t get what he thought he was paying for. I sent my ring back for repair because my fiance flipped out that the centre stone wasn’t centred (there was an obvious gap between it and one of the sidestones). He figured that if he paid them all those thousands, the least they could do was put the centre stone in the middle. Which is true enough. He spent a good 10 minutes ranting outside the store after we picked it up today. (The gap is no longer obvious, but it’s not gone, either. I think because of the prong design, they’d have to make a whole new ring to completey fix the issue, and I don’t care enough to push it).
Count your blessings and enjoy your new diamond! 🙂

@deliciousappleblue: You’re right! And my fiance is also a perfectionist. The diamond is indeed a little off center. And you can tell if you stare at it long enough… or maybe my eyes do it, I dunno. Either way, I’m sure I will love the new diamond and I will appreciate his hard work to make it the best it can be 🙂

your FI loves you and just wants you to have to best. :). i’m like you, the diamond doesn’t matter to me (i don’t even have an engagment ring!) if you tell him that, no, you don’t need a “better” diamond but he keeps on insisting over and over, then i say just accept it to make him happy, if nothing else.

I think deliciousappleblue makes a very good point – it was a big expense for him and he wants it to be perfect. it’s nice! enjoy your luck 🙂

Aww, that’s sweet. It means a lot that he wanted the best for you & he’s not satisfied until her gets it.
