Could he maybe buy the other ring you so badly wanted, and let you have this as a right hand ring? Or sell this one?? if not, it is pretty. And would be awesome in rose gold!

Would he be ok with you selling it and putting the money towards something you love??? I would just hate to see you settle on such an important piece.

I’d probably be putting my foot down on this one, set a precedent in terms of him needing to listen to me and value my preferences, but it is ultimately up to you. He’s going to have to spend more money (dipping, resizing…REDIPPING) really does seem like throwing bad money after good. He should try to sell it on and get you something you actually like, in your size.

Taiki:  I agree, based on the two different threads regarding this, it does not sound like her original desired ring is out of his budget. Foot down.

Now I know I am going to step on someone’s toes or perhaps fingers in this case by saying this but I also simply do not like princess cut stones with rose gold. Princess cut stones have always looked elegantly modern to me while rose gold is elegantly old world, the combo just doesn’t work imo.

You will look at this ring thousands of times throughout your life, you need to love it. I just don’t want you to look down at your hand and feel resentment because he ignored your wants and needs.

eveline:  I definitely think you need to put your foot down when it comes to this. Resentment is real and having that over your ring would be a sad situation. Here is what it could look like in rose gold. I tried to look at pictures on the interent to get a close enough color without it looking too pink. Best of luck!

It actually looks great in rose gold and I definitely think you’re trying to be reasonable but if it’s still not want you want, maybe you can ask if you can find something a little closer to his budget and a little more your style. I just remember reading that dipping rings can eventually fade (don’t quote me), so that may not be as much of a deal as he thinks. 

Also, maybe you could offer to pay for a small percentage of the difference? I know a lot of women don’t like that idea, but I pretty much bought mine (he bought his) so I’m probably odd.

Soon-to-be Mrs. Baranick:  I really think having it in rose gold makes a world of difference. It’s very pretty now that there is a contrast between the band and the diamonds. 🙂

Since he doesnt appear to attach any sentimentality to te ring (which is fine,) why not graciously accept this ring and also buy yourself the other ring?

eveline:  You sound so sweet.  You’ve got some good things going for you here….first you talked to him about your ring and didn’t let it “stew”…then you decided to go with it this time and make the best of it…and your general attitude is gracious.  Now that you have that much going for you, make sure he knows that in the future there will be times that you won’t compromise just to save a dollar or two and that most bigger purchases should be a combined effort so both of you are content.  I hope he takes your good nature into every choice he makes from here out.  You have a good generous heart.

I have got to say that an engagement ring is not to be settled upon. So you shouldnt have to settle when your dream ring is very much obtainable.  Your settling on stone choice, metal and setting. He needs to take your likes and dislikes into consideration.  The way hes approaching this matter may say a lot about how he handles points of contention in the future.

How much will it be to get the ring dipped? You know that it will wear through with time?

I think settling on this ring is fine, as long as you don’t harbor resentment of it in the future!

It will cost some $ to dip in rose gold and will need to be redipped every 6 mo to a year- all that adds up. Might be cheaper in long run to get what u want. He could sell the other ring or see if they will take it as trade toward the one u want at the jewelry store.
