Just wondering if anyone out there has been given an engagement ring they absolutely did NOT like? I’m not saying it’s the most important thing, just wondering how you reacted, or if you ever said anything?
Not for any personal reason, it’s more of just a funny thing. A very close friend of mine was given a “custom made” ring with a heart shaped sapphire center stone and two small trillion cut diamonds set in yellow gold. About as far from what she would ever pick as possible. She was horrified, but never said a word because he made it just for her, he just had freaking terrible taste. ha.

@BOSOXfan07: yes and the ring was exchanged the very next day! It was truly hiddeous. She didnt take a picture of the actual ring, but found a similar one online. When I saw it, I accidentally let out a huge “yuck.”

If I truly disliked my ring I would have said something later on. After you wear it for awhile and see if it grows on you. You never know! Sometimes you think you have your heart set on something until you try something new. If he loves me enough to ask for my hand then he should know my personality is big and bold enough to voice my opinion. You gotta wear that bad boy for life so both parties should be in love with it!

The ring in question was heirloom on my spouse’s side, and as far as heirlooms go, it wasn’t bad. The diamond is very pretty (for a diamond), if a little big. The setting is tasteful, but extremely tall (and topheavy, and inconvenient…but pretty). The fact that it was completely not what I wanted isn’t what finally did the ring in; it was technically within the realm of what I would wear (I’d said no diamonds excepting heirlooms). Life just took some unexpected turns, and I stopped wearing it in October or November.
We wound up having a tsavorite set in a customized setting so that I wouldn’t just be wearing the wedding band.
