    I voted to let him pick it, but I would give him some options.  Like both of the things you are thinking about, and just tell him your thoughts on it.  Both would make very pretty right hand rings!

    @SnowInApril:  Maybe ask for a small sapphire ring with a diamond halo and tell him you want it to be on the smaller side so it doesn’t look like you’re trying to “upstage” your e-ring 😉

    I don’t think it should upset him unless you start wearing that INSTEAD of your e-ring

    BTW: I totally know how you feel about your ring feeling big, mine is 2ct and it feels huge! He’s so proud of it (and so am I!) because we too came from humble beginnings. We’ve both worked so hard for what we have but I never thought I’d be rocking this!

    As much as I want to say that it’s a gift and he should pick it, don’t forget that you are the one going to be wearing it! If you haven’t yet, voice your thoughts to him about it. It isn’t as if you are going to totally ditch your original e-ring (unless you are? I didn’t catch that) so you can wear that during times he/you feel that showing your status may be important, and in the meantime you can wear a ring that is more to your tastes. 

    Whatever happens, this is by no means a stupid question and again, I think you should talk to him about it if he is going to be buying you another ring.

    @SnowInApril:  Pick whatever you want!  Is he going to be wearing it, or you?  Yep, you.

    The style is up to you. I bet if you go try some on you’ll find one you like.

    I would give him some guidance though. He wants to buy you something you love.

    @SnowInApril:  I think asking for a ring similar to the first engagement ring he gave you is really romantic. If my FH and I were engaged once before, I would want my original engagement ring back with a passion! I don’t care if it was a twist tie, he better find it lol. I don’t think it would make you look ungrateful. He already bought you a bigger ring and you don’t have to wear it on your ring finger. Tell him why it is important to you, like everytime you see it it will remind you of when you guys first met and being young crazy in love and yadda yadda all that good stuff. I’m sure once he hears why you want it he will want to get it for you.

    @SnowInApril:  since you love the halo look and love sapphires, maybe add a sapphire halo to your engagement ring?

    @SnowInApril:  I say get a diamond halo ring with a sapphire center stone!! Thatd be super pretty… Just tell him you dont want a huge center stone. Maybe pick a few examples from online for him to choose from.
