..and I hate it! ):
And my SO wants to buy a ring for me this week. So I’m scrambling last minute to try and find something, lol.
Of course this is just like me, to change my mind right before something happens. Has anyone else experienced this? Did it turn out okay in the end?

go with him! if you’re not sure what you like, the best way to find out is t actually go to the jeweler and try different things on!
I knew what i wanted from my online research but I went with my bf anyway and tried on a ton of styles and chose exactly what I wanted all along so you may do the same or you may end up liking something completely different.

I really suggest trying on whatever setting you think you’d like in person, if possible, even if you see RL pictures of the setting on thIs site.
I was obsessed with the Tacori 2620 for months, searched for the setting on the Bee and absolutely loved it. I dropped by a Tacori dealer to try it on before letting my partner know it was ‘the one’…and? I really disliked it in person. 🙁
I’m sorry the setting you wanted didn’t look good in the pictures you saw. Can you try it on it real life? And if you do find real life pictures of a setting you love, I highly recommend trying it on before sending the info off to your SO!

I second trying rings on in person. I thought that three stone rings were beautiful but every single one I tried on just did not look good on my finger!

I third trying rings on & it’s fine even if you go by yourself or w/a gf instead of your bf)
a gf of mine walked me into tiffany’s, said I was getting engaged, & dragged me around to try on a couple different carat sizes in every single shape and the major setting options. it was really helpful & then I passed it on to help out another gf who was getting engaged & tried more on againmyself elsewhere once I had a better idea of what I liked to narrow down setting even more.

Well, unfortunately the specific ring I wanted was an online selection from Kay Jewelers, and there isn’t one near here. But, there are still a few other ring stores in my town! I could still go and try some on, just to see.
I thank you for your suggestion, ladies. I was so panicked I didn’t even think of that, lol.

That happened to me too! I picked a MoissyCo ring and someone posted a “real” picture of it and I HATE it!

@misskittenn: yes, definitely go try stuff on in real life. Diamonds also look bigger in pics, I find. I wanted a plain round brilliant solitaire until I tried one on in real life. Even a 2 carat $50,000 one at Tiffany’s didn’t do it for me. I was quite surprised. You never know what you’ll fall in love with in real life.
