So Fiance got my e-ring today, but instead of looking it over and hiding like we had planned, he brings it to me, frowning. He hates it, it’s way smaller then we thought and when I put it on he said it looks like promise ring.So now I am torn, I’m sad because he doesn’t like it and plans to send it back, I’m also bummed because I kind of do like it even though it isn’t what I wanted. Personally I don’t know how I feel about any of this, I mean it’s just a ring….But I also know since we are so offbeat anyway that the few “traditions” are really important. We talk about it a little and I think he is gonna trade it in for something else that he liked. In short, today sucks….I expected it to be all awesome, because I knew he was planning on giving it to me tomorrow all romantic like…This is not even close to how I imagined this going..

I think that it is a beautiful ring and in no way, shape or form looks ANYTHING like a promise ring!! Sorry neither of you are thrilled with it but hopefully you can find something you both love and have that romantic time you want!

I don’t think it’s small at all, and I think it’s really beautiful! I eyed a few similar ones when we were still looking for rings. If you like it, I think you should tell him so and keep it. It looks gorgeous on you.

It’s beautiful. It’s so sad he doesn’t like it, but you know it’s important for the guy to like the ring.

I don’t love it, but it is really pretty and it was cheap so I do kind of like it. He says its up to me but I know he doesn’t like it. Either way we are gonna have to send it back because it needs resized cus it give my finger muffin top…. Honestly I was more stoked about the romantic dinner that I knew he was planning then the ring, we never do anything together anymore so the idea of spending one on one time with him made me crazy happy, I think thats were most of my bummed outness is coming from.

@Koolbeans621: I think your ring is really beautiful, and it really doesn’t look small. If you really do like it, then you should tell him, and if you don’t then maybe he can get something else and have a surprise for you. 🙂 It really is a pretty ring though.

Aww, I ‘m sorry he doesn’t like it. But– you’ll have another, new story soon. And a ring that he’s proud of, so in turn, you’ll also be proud of it.

don’t look like a promise ring to me, but it doesn look ill fitting, maybe that’s part of the problem?

I think it’s beautiful, and I don’t even like three stone rings, so that’s saying something. I know what we say probably won’t make you change your mind, but I agree with a PP that the size of the ring itself (meaning the band size) is probably part of what’s throwing it off for you. It looks NOTHING like any promise ring I’ve ever seen, and if I saw that on someone’s finger, I would definitely know it was an engagement ring.
I’m sorry you and your SO feel this way about the ring, I know that has to be a big disappointment. If you guys are going to have such negative feelings attached to this ring, then it might be a good idea to go ahead and trade it for something you both will be completely happy with. My Fiance and I had a similar situation when we started our ring search. He initially bought a ring from a saleswoman who was very rude to us, and we ultimately decided to return it and go with a different ring from a different company. It wasn’t so much that we didn’t like the ring, but the negative experience attached to it made us not want to keep it.
Sorry for writing you a novel, but I just know how you feel, so I had a lot to say. I hope you end up with a ring you both can be very happy with! 🙂

It is gorgeous, and in no way looks like a promise ring to me. So sorry to hear you don’t like it.

I think it is pretty! But if he isn’t happy with it I would let him get select a different one for you. You want him to feel good and proud about the ring that he bought for you.

I really like it! I agree with PPs, it doesn’t look like a promise ring at all. My fiancé actually thinks my ring is a bit too small (in carat-size) but I love the size of my ring. I think he wishes he could have afforded something bigger. Whatever, I love it. However, if neither of you are happy with this ring, then you should exchange it for something you both love 🙂
