My fiance ordered my ring online (I’m glad I didn’t know about it or I probably would have been nervous too) and it is perfect!  It appraised for WAYYYY more than he paid, so I’m happy he did it!  Yours is beautiful, and I’m sure it will be perfect in real life, too!

Where are you ordering from?

My engagement ring was purchased online at Blue Nile and my wedding band was purchased online at MyJewelryBox.com.  Haven’t had problems, the prices online are more reasonable than the stores (at least where I live).

I am so in love with the diamond/sapphire (or blue diamond?) look. It’s gorgeous.

We ordered my fiance’s ring online and got it and loved it. I too had anxiety and those 3-5 business days of waiting for it to arrive were long. When it came, it was great. Its stunning and everything we thought it would be. Check their return policy, there maybe something about a return policy within a certain number of days. You will know wether you like it or not as soon as it arrives. Good luck! Can’t wait to see that pretty ring on your finger. Please show us pics.

Realistically, if there’s a problem with the ring, if it needs sizing or doesn’t sit right and you have to get something different but similar, that’s not a tragedy. If your FI wants it to be heirloom jewelry you wear your entire life, he needs to be willing to compromise a little on making sure it’s something you love and that’s comfortable for you to wear for the rest of your life.  

But most likely, it will be fine, and you’ll be thrilled with it. It sounds like you’ve done a lot of research and are very clear about what you want, and this is just last minute nerves. Be brave. Let him order the ring.

I get the feeling if you love it in a picture, when it is on your hand and you are filled with excitement from the proposal and get to have this ring you admired and keep it and wear it forever, then you will love it even more. 

As for the anxiety, worrying will not reassure you. Think of it this way, when we are anxious, we have anxious thoughts. The thoughts are not an accurate prediction of what will happen. The anxious thoughts are a side effect of being nervous, nothing more. Just because you are worried about that outcome, doesn’t mean it will happen. I bet you’ll fall in love with ring even more once you own it.
