Hi there Bees!
A few months ago, my partner and I went ring shopping (YAY) in which it came down to two options. Long story cut short.. he accidentally told me he had bought the ring and I worked out which one it would be.
I appreciate ALL rings (and my.. what beautiful rings I’ve seen on this forum!) but I do tend to go towards antique inspired with attention to detail. Mine is an oval daisy cluster ring. I just worry whether the ring chosen looks too much like a RHR.. Whether its too unique or whether I should have opted for something ‘safe’.
I love my man to bits and I’m not trying to come across ‘materialistic’ in any way shape or form.
What do you Bees think? Does anyone have anything similar?

I think it’s a lovely ring! And you should try not to worry about regret quite yet. You’ll probably feel totally different about the ring once you see him down on one knee with the box open! I’m sure you’ll love it in the end, especially since it seems to be exactly what you were looking for to begin with.

@mia_amelia90: I think it’s beautiful! If it’s worn on your left hand, it won’t look like a RHR. I think you should relax, enjoy this exciting time smd get excited about your beautiful ring!

I think it’s a lovely ring. It’s a little more unique than some but there is nothing wrong with that at all! That can be a great thing. It makes it more “yours”, so to speak because it is unique to you and he picked it out for you. I don’t see any need to play it safe by going for something more traditional if that’s not what you really wanted.

@mia_amelia90: I think you answered your own question when you said the only thing you’re worried about is whether you should have gone with something more “safe” – not something you love more! You obviously love this and are happy with it, forget what everyone else thinks!

Thank you to everyone who replied. I feel so much better already and you are all absolutely right… this is an exciting time not to be wasted worrying!!! I’m sure I will love it so much more when he gets down on his knee and asks me to be his wife
And if I may add… I may be guilty of ring envy on this forum haha… so many gorgeous rings out there and a lot of lucky ladies!

@mia_amelia90: I think its beautiful and I love the vintage vibe.
Your e-ring is yours. You could be safe and get the standard, garden variety solitare but why? I love unique engagement rings and those with some style and personality. Yours has it in spades – enjoy it and rock it.

I think that ring is amazing, and sounds like its exactly what you wanted. I am sure no one will mistake it for a rhr if you wear it on your left hand, and I am sure all your worries will melt away when he’s down on one knee

i completely agree with what others have said. It is a beautiful ring, and I am sure it will look beautiful on you, too. I like the unique shape … but the most important thing is for you to love it.

I think this is exactly what you’re looking for, antique and uncommon. I spend an ungoldly amount of time looking at rings and I’ve never seen one that looked exactly like this and I’ve only occasionally seen ones that look similar to this. I know we bees can get a little supersaturated with rings here, but I think non-weddingbees don’t really make much distinction with RHRs vs. E-rings, especially with colored gem e-rings becoming more common. If it’s on your left hand, it’s an e-ring.
