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.

Sorry to hear that you’re not crazy about your ring but I wanted to say I think it’s gorgeous!

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…?
