Hi All –
I have a bit of dilemma. My engagement ring is nice, but it’s not the style or anything that my fiance` and I looked at or discussed. He told me after he gave it to me that he knew it wasn’t what I was looking for and was expecting me to not like it. I’m grateful that he took the step to take our relationship to the next level, but am torn on keeping the ring that wasn’t what I desired or getting a new ring that I don’t just like, but LOVE!!! HELP!!!

Can we see a picture?
All it comes down to is if you want to love wearing the ring daily, could the ring he gave you be an anniversary pre-wedding ring? And then you get to pick out/ design your engagement ring?

You could alway buy a bridal set and keep the ring as a family heirloom for passing down for other big relationship-taking moments to start a family tradition! but yes pictures would help!

Why did he get you this ring if he knew you wouldn’t like it? I’m confused… If he knows you don’t like it then I’d say return it if possible and go ringshipping together. I’m guessing since he knows you’re not fond of it that he won’t be offended that you want to change it.

First the important bit…
CONGRATULATIONS on your Engagement !!
I have to say that is a pretty ring… curious what was the “type / style” of ring you had hoped for instead ?

How come he didn’t get you the ring you wanted? Was it too expensive?

I’m confused if he KNEW you wouldn’t like it, why did he get it? I mean, why not just buy something that you would like?

I think your ring is pretty but there are others that would fit your finger better…
not sure why he would spend money on a ring HE KNEW you would not like. its like throwing a bunch of money down the drain. you should exchange or return it promptly before you cannot any longer. lots of places out there that have lovely rings for little $. including antique shops. keep looking. you have to have that thing on for the rest of your life. you better love it!

@MrsJenBee: My question too. If he cant afford the ring you want yet why not upgrade at a later date? But yes i am confused about why he didnt get what you asked for.

I’m also confused as to why he’d purchase a ring he was not expecting you to like…?

Hi All –
We’d looked at rings and even documented what styles etc. I LOVED. He said he went in store and didn’t see my 1st choice, salesperson showed him ring which he purchased and he got it. I personally think the price was right for him and everything we discussed went out the window. I wanted an emerald or princess cut ring. Like I said, I think the ring is pretty, but it just wasn’t my heart’s desire 🙁 We talked about taking it back or getting a larger stone put in, but he wants to just purchase a bridal set and we’d go get it TOGETHER. Thanks for all of your input!
