that is a lot of money….if it were me? I’d keep my mouth shut. You will love your ring you can always get a yellow diamond wedding band to pair with it! or maybe a yellow diamond RHR 🙂

I would just stay quiet for now…then when he gives you the ring, you can causually ask questions and say maybe I want yellow? If it’s custom made I doubt you can return it…in that case I’d just keep it as it is. Maybe at a later date you can get those replaced as an upgrade.

Why have you changed your mind?

 If your absolutely sure you would rather have yellow then say it! 15K??? That is way too much money to spend on a ring you won’t absolutely love. I’d tell him before it’s too late. He will be so upset if he spends that kind of money and finds out AFTER that you wanted something else more….not to mention you would sound incredibly ungrateful

I don’t think it will hurt him as long as he has time to change it. I’m sure he wants you to absolutely love your ring and have exactly what you want! Maybe mention it to your mom and have her mention you have really been wanting a yellow halo instead??

Etassy:  If there is enough time left, I would honestly tell him that you changed your mind. I think the yellow diamonds would be really pretty. So, maybe ask for the yellow middle stone, or leave the diamond and all, just do the outer halo in yellow. Or, wouldnt it be super pretty to do the white diamond middle, halo next to it in yellow, and outer halo white diamonds??? That would be really pretty! And, than have yellow stone wedding bands next to it. SO NICE!

I’d wait and see it in person first, and if you don’t like it in person you should just tell him and get the ring you want.  $15K is too much for a piece of jewelry you aren’t truly in love with in my opinion, and I’m sure he just wants you to have what will make you happy!

Etassy:  This is a sticky situation!! I unknowingly stressed my FI out with my comments regarding what kind of e-ring I wanted before we got engaged! I didn’t know that my ring was already in the works, and had I known, I doubt that I would’ve made so many confusing back and forth statements! One minute I loved halos, and the next I thought that they were too popular and common lol

My FI basically said what an above poster said, it’s too much money to spend on something that you don’t absolutely love. I’m sure he wants you to be COMPLETELY satisfied and 100% happy, especially after he took the time to get you the ring he thought you wanted. Since you “technically” don’t know details about the ring yet (thanks mom!), why don’t you casually bring up the fact that you are loving yellow diamonds and have been actually dreaming about having one in your e-ring. You can then gauge his response. If he starts  frantically asking you a million questions, he probably is trying to find out exactly what you are talking about so he can change it before it’s too late!! I would only do this if you are absolutely sure that you would really be happier with something other than what he already got. Like I mentioned above, I unintentionally stressed my poor FI out by changing my mind so much lol!

Good luck!!! Your ring sounds like it’s going to be AMAZING!! I can’t wait to see photos!!!
