ivyflames:  Girrrrrrl. You need to go with what you like! You’re buying it, or paying for at least half of it, and you’ll be wearing it the rest of your life. This is your ring. Not anyone else’s. Not everyone will agree, but that’s the beauty in different personalities and opinions. You’re clearly not happy with what you have at the moment. You have the means to upgrade. By all means do it, you can’t please everyone anyways.

Future Mother-In-Law doesn’t have to wear it, so she doesn’t get an opinion. Why does she care? I find that so odd. Maybe your Fiance should afdress ot with her . Next time she brings it up.

Get the set you found. Get married with it. That new set will have so much meaning and sentiment behind it. People upgrade, change rings all the time. I don’t see anything wrong with it.

Bridey77:  Second! I totally agree, it’s your hand and ring. Why does it bother her? Is there some underlying stuff going on?

I agree with the PP that you should get what YOU and your Fiance are happy with.

Is it possible that his mom doesn’t know/understand the back story of the three rings you have had and why you aren’t completely happy with them? (i.e. she thinks you keep wanting different rings, when really they were either not your style, broke, or not durable) Not saying that it should matter, just trying to think of a reason why she might care so much . . .

Bridey77:  I know, right? I seriously think we should be able to edit our posts longer than the millisecond we have now.

OP–what the heck? Your MiL needs a big ol’ dose of some ‘butt the f*ck out’. Get the set you want (and deserve)! You’ll be the one wearing it.

ivyflames:  I wholeheartedly agree with all the PPs who said you should get the set you want. If you and your Fiance are both okay with the change, that’s all that matters. It’s your ring, and it should be something that you love, that fits your style, and that makes you smile each time you look at it on your hand.

Get what you want; it’s your ring.

ivyflames:  Is she the jealous type? I mean, does she control her son in other ways?

Edited to add, no matter her reasons, it’s still none of her business!

ivyflames:  She’ll get over it. I’m sure that after the wedding she’ll stop being a PIA about it. On a side note, do you have a pic of the ring? I would love to see it, as well as the rest of my fellow ring porn addicts I’m sure.
