- Wedding: August 2013 - An amazing non-profit retreat
Tonight I was hunting for wedding venues like a crazy person. I mumbled something about “I hate stupid weddings,” but FI heard “I want a different ring.” (having a cold doesn’t help matters) He looked at me like I had just ripped his heart out of his chest and thrown it on the ground, and said “what?!” in this really heartbroken way. I was like, “I did not say that at all!!” Oh my, what a reaction from the guy who doesn’t even wear it! :O
Anyone else have FI’s who are really attached to the e-ring?

@sherryberry: I wish. We’ve been having issues with mine (just had to send it back for the 3rd time) and my FI said he wanted to “just toss that stupid ring and get a better one”. It hurt my feelings because I’m really attached to it. Sorry that your guy’s feelings got hurt, but I think it’s very sweet that he’s attached to your ring! 🙂

I would never consider changing or upgrading mine because I know how much effort FI put into picking it out and how proud he was that he did it all by himself. It makes me love my ring even more.

Mine FI isn’t but I am. I’ll admit its not a huge diamond but I didn’t want one. I have small hands and small fingers. Bigger rings just looked strange. I had one lady tell me it was ok because he could exchange it for a bigger one later on and I just stared at her. To me this is the ring he proposed with and I want to keep it. I could see maybe adding to it with a custom setting as its a solitaire for a special anniversary but I’d never want to exchange it completely.

Yes but in a slightly different way. I originally picked a design that I was in love with. Please see my avatar. Anyway it came in two tcw. I wanted the smaller one while the FI instead I picked the bigger one. Well, I had decided the ring was going on layaway anyway so I reminded him my decision wasn’t set in stone. For the next couple of weeks he kept planting doubt into my head until I agreed to go back and try on both rings side by side. I finally choice the bigger tcw since it’s what made him happy.
However we both agreed to upgrade the center diamond someday because I chose (and like) an invisible setting.

I would never upgrade or change mine. its a .5c heart shaped diamond. i love it dearly.
fh spent months going to stores and looking online (which i found out later) before he found my ring. good thing too cause he proposed two days after he bought it cause he wanted december 1st to be our engagement date and wedding day one year later. so cute. im not sure how much attachment he has to my ring, but just on the fact that he spent so much time on it makes me never want to change it

I think my guy would be crushed.
It was the ring of my dreams, and he worked so hard to get it for me, spent all his money, had to carefully plan how to get it without me finding out about it, and he called all my friends and had them help him plan how to propose to me. It was the most beautiful day of my life, and for me to simply say that I wanted a different ring (which I don’t!!) would tell him that none of that mattered to me.

My hubby could care less! He bought me 3 so far…one I lost, the second I had for 6 years and then he just upgraded my stone for our 15th anniversary. He said if I want anymore I have to fork out the money cause he is done lol

My FI is also really attached to it! He makes sure I don’t loose it and has a peek at it from time to time. I think its because he spent ages learning about diamonds, looking for the perfect diamond and designed the ring himself! 🙂

I dont ever want or plan to upgrade, any other ring woud not be the one he proposed with and therefore it would not be my engagment ring, it would be a replacement, and that doesnt sit well with either of us. He would be very hurt if I replaced something that had such meaning wth something else.

oh I LOVE my ring, so much!! And so does FI. I think he’s pretty proud of it too, so nope, I would never want to change my ring.

No, he’s not attached to it. DH likes the idea of buying me an upgrade for our 10th anniversary & passing my ring on to our children eventually.

Mine is very attached to my ring. He always takes my hand and stares at it. I don’t see myself ever wanting a different ring, but if I did I think he’d be really upset.

Im very attached to mine and love it! But I have asked my husband what he would want me to do if I didnt like it, told him about some of the storeis on WB… He said “it would suck but he would want me to be happy and get something I woulod Love”
I thought that was sweet, anyway I love it so I never have to change it which is great 🙂
