I dont think you’re being selfish. We all have distinct tastes and know what we do and do not like. I obviously dont think you should tell  him about the current ring. But maybe you should find some way to hint or even discuss your engagement ring style. If possible mention that when that time reaches you wont mind him soliciting your best friend advice in helping choose a ring.

Thats just worst case scenario though. I’m sure he’ll be able to get it right in time. And you love it just fine.

Focus on something positive in the mean time so these dreams wont keep popping up.

Oh my gosh, I had a bunch of dreams like these before we got engaged too! I had one dream that instead of a ring, he proposed with a broach that was shaped like a ladybug or a beetle or something. And then another where my ring was one of those heart/crown things like this:

It’s pretty funny because the ring he actually designed for me actually sort of looks like a crown on the side. Weird huh?!

In any case, I think it’s fine to be nervous that the ring he gets you is one that you want and love! I mean, you’re going to be wearing it every day for the rest of your life! FI had a friend quiz me about what style of ring I would want etc. Apparently he had it all wrong and had to start over, redesign in the ring, even buy new diamonds! But he got it right in the end, so don’t worry, it’ll be fine 🙂

I had nightmares too!  He knows exactly what I want though… I don’t think you can mess up a simple solitaire and I have confidence in him.

Oh honey I know the feeling 🙂

FH’s father told him he should always buy a girl jewlery if he doesn’t know what to get (smart guy!) FH on the other hand has NO taste for my birthday one year he bought me a giant Ruby and Amethyst necklace on a heavy silver and gold chain, I thought it was a joke! This was after I had gotten a few years of tacky presents. I finally had to let him know that I loved the gesture but he needed to stop wasting his money on things I would never wear. We laugh about it now. But this is also why I helped design my ring!
