I’ve been with my child’s dad for going on 6 yrs we’re not planning on getting married and he’s definitely not going to buy me a ring ( he thinks it’s a waste of money)
I’m 33 yes old with 2 small children and feel like ppl look at me when I’m not wearing a eeddwed set.
So anyways I’m getting $3100 for my tax return and am going to buy my self a ring. I’ve found 3 rings I’ll post pics
Pic 1 first choice Tacori .83 with very good spec $2600
Pic 2 1.53 decent spec $2100
Pic 3 .90 $2000
And I’m a size 8

I’m really leaning towards the Tacori but what do you bees think ?

kdums2018 : I totally get what you mean.. I’d hate to get looked that way. I really like the 3rd pic!

Depends on what you want, do you want bigger diamond or pricier setting? Tacori the price is all about the setting, they are name brand and you definitely pay for that. Personally I would want a bigger stone but that is personally preference

They’re each beautiful. If you’re fine not getting married and buying a ring, I say go for it! The Tacori is a wonderful choice.

If you are both against getting married, why do you want to ‘look married’? I don’t get it.

Pic two I’m a size 8 as well so I’d say go with a bigger stone so it’s more proportional to your finger size. Have you considered more affordable options like Moissanite? Spending a good chunk on your tax return on a ring when you have two children isn’t ideal in my opinion but it’s your money at the end of the day. Also does your SO agree to be engaged even though he sees no value in purchasing a ring? If he agrees to marry it doesn’t matter who gets the ring at the end of the day. But I’m concerned you may set yourself up for questions and disappointment if you just go and purchase a ring and he has no plans of being engaged or married to you. May even backfire and turn him off/push him away.

I’m not a huge fan of the first pic. I think the third pic is my favorite, but the second is really pretty too! And it seems to be the biggest stone for a decent price. But I just love how the third pic catches the light 🙂

2nd and 3rd are my favorites as well but it really is up to your style and taste as you will be the one looking at it everyday 🙂 love your independence and taking action!

So you want an engagement ring without a wedding band? Is that practical considering you could bump or scratch the children with a high-set stone?
I’d go for a nice band that could or could not be a wedding band, if I were you.

Why do you feel the need to lie about your status?

if your motivation is to avoid weirdness with other people, i actually think you’re going to have a load of awkward conversations when you turn up with a ring. people are going to assume you’re engaged and are going to congratulate you/ask questions about the wedding that isn’t happening. you’ll have to explain or lie… if you’re just wanting a kickass ring and are fine with telling people that, this isn’t an issue to worry about at all. 🙂
the first ring is really lovely. the diamond looks the best and the setting is gorgeous. plus the diamond doesn’t appear to be very high set, so less likely to catch on things or scratch anyone.

Hmm I like #1 the best. It would look the best of the three to not have a wedding band.

Buy yourself a ring, but also toss him out, because he does not care about something that is important to you.

Given that you only really want it to stave off any possible comment about being unmarried, I think a plain gold ring which looks like a modest wedding ring would be better.
Or, l wonder if you are not that happy about not being married, and especially about your SO thinking a ring for you would be a waste of money. So wearing a ring that looks like an engagement ring would somehow galvanise him , if only because people are bound to ask you about it……
