My boyfriend of 4 1/2 years and I decided that we wanted to get engaged within the next year or so. We went out to look at engagement rings so he would know exactly what I would love when the time came for him to buy one. We went to a non-chain jewler in town and sat down and picked out a couple rings that I liked a lot….One of the rings I absolutely fell in love with! We narrowed it down to three rings so that there would still be some element of surprise when the time came, even though he and I both knew which one I wanted him to choose. We didn’t really talk about it much after that because we didn’t want to ruin anything, but when we went to visit his family a few weeks later I saw his sisters engagement ring for the first time, up close. It looks very similar to the one I feel in love with!! 🙁 They are different in their own ways of course but the overall, general appearance is very similar. My boyfriend and I talked and he thinks that it wouldn’t be a problem if our rings looked a little similar but I wouldn’t want her to get angry or upset about it. Then again, I also can’t picture any other ring on my finger now 🙁 Should I just let my boyfriend get the ring I love or try and find another ring that I love almost as much?? I need some help!
