The ring is in for resizing? Can you return after sizing? Most places don’t allow this. 

It sounds like your Fiance really wants you to be happy with your ring, and as you didn’t give him much direction before, he just guessed at what you’d like. It sounds like he’d be fine with an exchange – so you should consider what you’d like.

If you’re not used to wearing high rings they can be a challenge. If you’d rather have a low set diamond with diamonds around it, then that’s great. The best idea is probably to go to the store he got the ring at and try on other rings to see what you like. If they have a website you can do a bit of internet shopping ahead of time. 

Depending on the situation, and the ring he got you, you may get even be able to take the diamond out of the ring he gave you and put in into a setting that you like better. Then you’ll have the original diamond he proposed with – if you want to be sentimental. 

If you happen to get a set, you can always offer to put in the extra money to help pay for it.  Just ask – open communication is very important in relationships.

Congrats on your engagement! Just out of curiosity do you have a pic of the ring? I’d love to see it!

If you’re on the more sentimental side, I would just reset the center stone and get a new lower setting with small stones on the side or whatever you like. Finding a semi mount or setting should be no problem. Especially if you want to shop elsewhere and would consider buying pre-owned, there are deals to be had! I personally prefer a low bezel setting. Good luck and happy hunting! ๐Ÿ˜Š
