Have you looked at cheaper alternatives? Asha, Moissanite, gemstone, second hand rings, paying towards some of it yourself?

firstly, very envious you own your own place now 🙂 that’s great. and i think it’s a very smart thing you’re doing, waiting until you’re engaged to live with your SO, especially considering your past experiences.

as the other comment says, if the ring is the only issue, have you looked into other alternatives besides a large budget ring? is that something you would feel comfortable discussing with your SO? obviously i don’t know how he would feel about this, maybe his mind is set on getting you something more expensive and doesn’t want to explore other options, which i think would be fair from his standpoint if that’s what he has always wanted to do.

in my opinion, it’s probably the best thing just to talk about it with him, how you don’t want to pressure him which i’m sure he would be reassured by, and that you may not necessarily want to wait a long time for a certain ring. communication is always the first step i think!

good luck 🙂

Congrats on the house! If you arent wanting to look at alternatives to diamonds (and thats OK – some people aren’t!) then you may just have to wait a touch longer. Paying down debt should be his priority and I like that you want him to buy it outright and not finance.

Dont let him saying it wont be for a long time get you down – his idea of a long time might be shorter than your idea!
