Mr.Miller :  I think it’s beautiful and very elegant 🙂 It’s classic! I wonder why her family said to return it? Maybe she likes a completely different style? Did you ask them why the think you should exchange it?

Its beautiful! If she turns your proposal down because of the ring, then she should not be the one for you. She is marrying you, not the ring.

Mr.Miller :  Do you know what kind of ring your girlfriend likes?  I think it is stunning and classic.  I cannot imagine any reason why she would not love that ring.  It is a classic engagement ring.  Seems perfect to me.  What were your mother and sister’s problem with it?

Hmm- I think the ring is gorgeous– then again I’m biased Bc it looks a lot like mine so we have similar taste lol.

 

I like the thin micro pave band Bc it is dainty and makes the stone look larger.

 

***I will say this though- I’ve only had my ring since late January and it is already being repaired for a lost stone/bent setting.  Apparently this is common for thin pave bands.  I may eventually replace the setting if this keeps happening.  Also thinner bands are a bit harder to size IMO because thin bands need to be smaller

It’s a very pretty ring. But I’d need more details before saying whether you should return it. 

Why did you chose that setting? Why do you think she will like it? 

Why did your family not like it? Do they think she won’t like it or for another reason?

It’s a beautiful ring, and I love that you had it engraved.

My e-ring is from Blue Nile and I absolutely love it – what did her family not like about it?

It’s beautiful. Don’t exchange it. I’m sure your girlfriend will love it.

It looks great!

If I were you, I’d propose with the ring, but let your girlfriend know that there is the option to exchange or return the ring if the one you picked out isn’t her style.

Good luck 🙂

“I’m afraid my gf will turn away the ring and say no to my proposal.”

Mr.Miller :  why would you want to marry someone that will do this over a RING? Of course she as every right not to like it ( i think its a beautiful ring, by the way) but to turn away your proposal because of it? that is sad. i hope she is better than that. You seem like a great guy from your post, it would be awful for her to do this to you.

 

Edit: i am sorry, i didnt mean to sound mean or harsh… just felt very bad that you voiced your concern about her turning away your proposal if she doesnt like it. Like previous poster advised – let her know that she has an option of getting it exchanged if she does not like it.

Why do they think they should return it?

Do they think it needs to be bigger/flashier?

I think it’s lovely and i’m sure you picked it because you know your GFs tastes!
