I’m not sick of my ring at all…BUT I wish I had asked for a classic round cut ring instead of a princess cut. The princess cut now seems super trendy. And I like round and emerald cuts so much better!

@jholler25: I completely understand what you were saying. I see the sacrifices my man made  to get me a beautiful diamond and it makes me never want to change it & if I did, I think he would be hurt. We never had a ring discussion but to think he put all that money away each paycheck & then took time to learn about diamonds and design my ring I will love it forever, even if I thought it was ugly whihc it really could have been haha. (I have a thing for trapezoid stones in jewelry and fiance only knowing that originally tried to get me a trapezoid solitaire, but thankfully the jeweler talked him out of it πŸ˜‰ If anyone has such a ring I don’t mean to insult, just my opinion, though I have never seen such a thing and neither had the jeweler!

I have other jewelry that like you, I think about trading in or selling on Ebay and putting something new in its place b/c it doesnt symbolize all FI’s hard work, but my ering has to much meaning to ever do that =)

That all being said, if we had gone ring shopping together and the ring was completely my choice and I changed my mind, I wouldn’t see anytihng wrong with changing the setting or something. Us girls can be pretty indecisive πŸ˜‰

@bells:  Yes, actually, that is somewhat what I’m saying. ME.  It’s MY OPINION and I am entitled to it.  I think that some of the posters that are attacking MY OPINION and what I VALUE for some reason cannot see the correlation between sacrifice and cost.  For ME PERSONALLY, and as several others have posted on here saying that they understand and have similar situations, knowing that my Fiance put so much hard work into giving me my ring, he had to work A LOT of days for it, actually does make it more special to me.

I wouldn’t have wanted a non-diamond or a tiny ring.  He know me, and he loves me for me, and he knows what I like.  So he SACRIFICED to get me a ring that he knew I would love.  But what I LIKE and VALUE, is different from some others, and also similar to some others.  

It’s just not necessary to attack me because I VALUE the SACRIFICES he made, and that makes it extra sentimental to me.  I didn’t attack anyone because they like opals instead of diamonds. I just gave my viewpoint.  I read other viewpoints, and I saw things from other perspectives and understand them, however I still have the same viewpoint FOR ME.

My Fiance worked his ass of to get me a nice ring, and I agree with another poster that everyone has a different monetary definition of “sacrifice.”  To me, my ring was FI’s “sacrifice.”  

Anyone who reads my posts can see that I’m not a bragger, and I’m not snarky.  I simply made the point that, you know what?  FI really sacrificed for my ring, and no I don’t think I’ll ever want to swap it out because it means too much.  I APPRECIATE IT was my point.  Less sentimental people may not make the same association, but I am a very sentimental person.

And yes to answer your question, if Fiance had just ran out to Dillards and bought me a CZ or something that I didn’t want for my ering, not only would I be unsatisfied with it enough to want something else, I would wonder if Fiance really knew me.  We both work hard and enjoy nice things, and while one person’s “nice thing” they are lusting after is an opal or a white topaz, mine happened to be a decent sized diamond.  And I’m not sorry for that.  I like what I like, and Fiance worked really hard to get what he knew I wanted, and then some…And that means a lot to me.

And just to note, the OP did put a price tag with her pictures.  I’m sorry that people are missing the point of me correlating my ring’s price tag with the love and effort my Fiance went through to get it for me.  For some reason, OP’s $2K price tag bothered no one, and my $11K price tag pissed a few people off.  I don’t think everyone’s playing fair here.

@bittersweet_symphony:

Thank you so much for taking the time to support my views with yours…I was really happy to see that I’m not alone in seeing a lot of value and sentiment in the sacrifice made.  That is so awesome that your Fiance had your ring designed, and worked very hard to get something specific for you…That is exactly the kind of effort and sacrifice that I attribute to how sentimental I feel about my ring…Again, thanks for posting!

@jholler25 I dont post very often however I read the boards regularly and I feel some bees are either missing your point or attacking you. I completely understand where you are coming from. Fiance worked really hard for my ring (same value as yours) and I had no idea how much it actually cost until after he purposed. I absolutely love my ring and wouldnt change it for anything. He worked with our jeweller to design it & put alot of thought into it. Aside from the fact that I love the ring itself, I also love how he work overtime & saved his money to buy me a ring that he thought was perfect. Regardless of the cost if it was $200 or $11,000 this was something he wanted to do for me and that’s what makes my ring special to me.

I think some of the bees for some reason are missing what your saying about your ring, the value is not the reason why you love it.  I didnt think you were bragging, just giving us some info on your ring and by the way it’s beautiful.

@bells: Honestly, with how often you’re bringing it up in the post, it sounds like you’re the one with the problem with her ring/the price. It just sounds like you’re a little jealous…

@agirlwithdreams7: I brought it up because I was basically attacked from a couple of bees who wanted to make me aware that everyone doesn’t want a diamond ring, others want opals,asha, whatever, which their point is that they cost less but are not a lesser ring to their owners.  My point, repeatedly in defense of my post, is simply that I personally like diamonds, but I understand that other people like to be different and don’t need or want a diamond.  So that’s why I have to keep addressing it, because it keeps getting slung at me:)  I have posted like 80 gillion times that I understand that we place different values on different things and different rings.  I’m good with that.  I get it, and appreciate others’ reasoning behind wanting something different.  I actually learned some things that I had not previously considered, which helps me to understand other tastes and viewpoints better, but does not change my own.  And I’ve had to explain that over and over.

My fiance picked out something TOTALLY different than what I had envisioned on my finger…. but I am SO glad let him pick it out. He did a fantastic job and proved that he knows me better than I know myself:) I LOVE my e-ring and wouldn’t trade it for anything.

@TessaDL: I love, love, love your set!  The birthstone rings are so neat!  I look forward to getting anniversary rings to add too.  I love the look of a stack with a nice solitaire in the center πŸ™‚

@jholler25: I totally do get what you are saying. I wasn’t even a big fan of rings before being engaged, but now I don’t think I could ever get tired of my e-ring. It is an excellent cut emerald diamond, G color, VVS1. Every time I look at it, I realize what a high quality stone it is, that it came with a certain price tag, and that DH worked very hard so I could have it. To me, it’s like a little piece of perfection on my hand,

i am not bored with my ring, but sometimes i look at other rings and get ring envy. i think i only ever had any issues with my ring since i have seen sooooo  many on here.  i found my ring in one day. looked around for another couple of days and still wanted the first one i found.  but since discovering weddingbee, i have seen so much and learned so much that i wonder if i were to pick a ring now with this newfound knowledge, would MY ring be the one i pick?  i hate to say probably not…..but i will end this by saying i really DO love my ring   πŸ™‚

@jholler25: If you’ve made your point than stop defending yourself. A few people questioned what you said, so what? That’s attacking? It’s an open forum, and you made what you initially admitted was a somewhat controversial statement. Get used to hearing opinions you don’t want to when you go online.

I stand by my opinion and am not going to continue to explain it. Maybe you should do the same if it’s upsetting you so much?

@jholler25: I’m sorry but the way you make it sound, your Fiance didn’t sacrifice anything.  He had no other choice but to get you what you wanted.  While you might be on the same page, in the scenario you described, I kind of feel bad for him.  You’re very clear about what you wanted and if you got a CZ from Dillard’s it wouldn’t show “sacrifice”. To me I’m confused because I thought marriage was a form of sacrifice, not the ring.

@agirlwithdreams7: Yw.  You could always switch it up with bands, too.  Ya know, anniversary time! πŸ™‚
