He is unbelievably proud! He put in months of research, had the diamonds cut specifically for me, had the setting made, and he did an amazing job. He probably loves it more than I do (if that were possible!).

He’s very proud of my ring! He’s always grabbing my hand to look at it. It’s cute ๐Ÿ™‚

Since getting engaged back in 2009, I have had my doubts over my ring. However, Fiance has always maintained that this is the prettiest ring he has ever seen. It’s taken a little while, but Fiance was right all along- this ring is perfect for me!

No secrets with my DH.  He is very proud that he chose my upgrade.  He spent quite a bit of time choosing a jeweler and what he wanted.  He even took 5 stones out in the sun to compare because he knew I would do that. ๐Ÿ™‚  The sparkle in the diamond pales by comparison to the sparkle in his eyes when he tells the story of his shopping trip.  I love that more than the diamond itself and reminds all over again how much I love this man!

Is my Fiance the only one who isn’t necessarily proud? I just asked him and he was like, “Why would I be proud of a thing?” I feel the same way though, so it works for us.

We’re proud of our relationship and of each other, but I don’t really feel a sense of pride about my ring. He does say he thinks it’s the prettiest one he has seen, but that’s not exactly pride. It’s a great size, we paid a fair price for it, and I’ll have it forever.

Beside what I do on the bee, I never mention my ring and talk about its specs in real life, unless someone asks (and even then, I’d be uncomfortable sharing). I think ring talk IRL would horrify my Fiance, to be honest. He is very reserved, polite, and WASP-y. In terms of being inwardly proud, we don’t really feel that way either. About our engagement? Yes. The ring? No.

I’m interested to see how my SO is going to feel about the finished product, because I’ve made 99% of the decisions on the design. Of course, he’s always been there with me designing it, but I’ve definitely been making most of the decisions. So, I’m definitely interested to see if he’s going to love it when it’s done… he’s not really able to visualize things like that in his head.

@letigre:  lol, along with what I just said earlier, I really don’t think my SO is going to care very much either. He only cares that I love it, and that’s it.

Yes. He doesn’t show off about it, but he beams when he hears other girls say things to me like wow thats gorgeous, or what a ring. He also pretends to think it’s silly, but loves when my friends tell him you did really good or a similar type comment.

@letigre:  +1. I read this question to my Fiance and he was like “Uh? I dunno? What?” lol totally confused by the question. He couldn’t understand how he could be proud of a ring.

To us the engagement really hasn’t changed anything in our almost 8 year relationship, except that we set a goal to be married by a certain date – and made it publically known. We were already living and acting as a married couple, so outside of the fact that I woke up with a ring on my finger the next day, everything else has been 100% the same after the proposal.

DH loves my ring, is proud of getting me just what I wanted and loves that my dream ring revolved around the color of his eyes which makes him smile silly all the time ๐Ÿ™‚

 @FutureDrAtkins: interesting! We have very similar situations then.

In my case, only one friend has ever said, “You did so well!” to my Fiance after demanding to see the ring, and I think my Fiance found the experience embarrassing since this was in front of a ton of other people at a party.  But like I said, he’s really private and reserved. He took the ring buying experience seriously because I like pretty things and he wanted to indulge me. 

When we got engaged, my friend asked why I didn’t post a ring photo on Instagram and the look on my FI’s face was priceless. He was mortified! You’d think he was a deeply religious man with how modest he is, lol!

Fiance is openly proud of the ring! He spent months picking the right jeweler to work with, finding the right color/size of purple sapphire that he wanted with the right amount of sparkle, designing the ring, etc. He loves to show it to people and tell the story of how it was created. We’re working on designing the wedding band together, and I’m sure that he’ll enjoy talking about that one just as much. ๐Ÿ™‚

Fiance is secretly proud but never in public nor will he brag about it. He sometimes holds my hand looking at the ring in astonishment, saying :”It does sparkle a lot, doesnt it?” and then smile happily. Also, I can tell that he likes hearing people complimenting me on the ring… Or he will comment on other women’s engagement rings, telling me that no ring is as pretty as mine.
