I got engaged on March 3rd to the most wonderful man and with an absolutely beautiful ring. I noticed later on that my center stone was pretty warm in my eyes and looked really warm at my work (where I get to be 5 days a week 8 hrs a day). AND IT DROVE ME CRAZY lol.
I know that people have talked about things you are and aren’t supposed to do but I talked it over with my fiance and he just wanted me to be happy. Called the jeweler myself and discussed the situation which led to a new stone on Saturday. Best decision I ever made.
I know some people get worried about hurt feelings but in the end you’ll wear it for the rest of your life and really want to LOVE it. When I get home I’ll post before and after pics:)

I don’t think that’s something you shouldn’t talk about or express. I think it becomes an issue when someone has unrealistic expectations, or is going about the replacement in a sneaky way, or simply not communicating with their partner.
You communicated. He communicated. New stone. You’re both happy. That’s a win-win-win-win in my book. 🙂 Can’t wait to see the pics.

@claireos: From most of what I read on The Knot, the response to anyone who had any issues with their ring got the whole “you should be happy with what you got and leave it at that”. I’m lucky to be engaged to my best friend who I talk everything through so just thought I’d throw it out there that it doesn’t have to be some dramatic thing.
Everyone on here seems to be a lot nicer and more realistic on things. That’s why I moved most of my wedding/engagement viewing/lurking over here 🙂

So glad it worked out! If you cannot talk to your Fiance about this, then what can you talk about?
I personally don’t buy the idea that you cannot talk to your Fiance about a ring issue and that you should just be happy with what you receive. I also found the Knot to be very catty.
Congrats on your enagagement!

Congrats! I am glad to hear you ended up happy and your Fiance was more than willing to discuss it.
To be honest I’m not about hiding one’s dissapointment but rather addressing it tactfully. I was always vocal about my reasonable expectations and my Fiance included me in the process. I think it is important to not be afraid to discuss the issue, again tactfully and with reasonable expectations, with your soon to be Fiance.
