Hi Dolly,

I had to chime in here with my very first post as well. I’m so happy you like your ring. You see I’m the guy, I’m learning from this site about rings dresses etc. My fiance has no time to plan her own wedding, due to her owning her own business and shift work, about 12hours a day, so now I’m trying to do my best to pull this wedding together.

I have to say my girl sounds just like you. She says she Doesn’t want a Diamond. Too typical. I’m confused. (I proposed without a ring) But she doesn’t wear jewelry, doesn’t have pierced ears, rarely wears makeup, but she’s quite classy, and has a Doctorate degree. She admits she doesn’t really know what she wants (regarding a ring). She doesn’t like being in the spotlight. She’s 36 and I’m 41, first marriages.

Should I believe her when she wants a ‘fashion Ring’ or is that just because she’s never worn a ring before?  

Again, I’m glad it worked out for you with your Fiance and the ring, I hope I can get the same result. I think I confused the situation greatly by asking her to pick the ring she wants, now 6 weeks have gone by and no ring…..

@dolly1105:  Beautiful, congrats!!!!!  It looks huge too, which I love.  And the pink sapphires are a great touch.

 

 

@sceptre:  I would go with something classic.  Like a round diamond in a tiffany style 6-prong solitaire.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Beautiful!! He did good, incorporating the pink sapphires ๐Ÿ˜‰ Lucky girl!

@sceptre:  I didn’t want a diamond at first either because it was to typical and I had never pictured an engagement ring…until I decided I wanted to marry my man. (I proposed) Anyway, I initially tried a smoky quartz, which was gorgeous! It scratched though and I found out it’s a stone that looks dirty quite easily. I then went for diamonds (not your typical ring though) and I love love love it! 

Perhaps your gf would even like a band with stones, instead of a setting with a large center stone? It’s comfortable, elegant and less attention-grabbing. I wear a small eternity band when I don’t wear my larger e-ring.

@sceptre:  She is not interested in picking a ring? Would she mind if you just picked one for her? I would stick with a solitaire- classic and elegant – if you’re not sure what she would want and she doesn’t really have a interest in picking it herself.

Hello Everyone. It’s not that she’s not interested in picking a ring, but logistically it is tough due to her work hours. So of course I spent, and spent with her many many hours looking over websites for rings. We must have browsed over 500 rings.

My fear is just as Dolly said, didn’t want a Diamond – until she got one! Then she really does. Dare I say, Women are confusing! But I think many women do understand that this type of behaviour exists (evidence is the Valentines topic on th e radio show, in post #10).

This is the ring she likes the most so far:

 

 

 

 She has a fairly slim hand/finger, wears mostly small clothing. I don’t know why she wants a wide ring. ‘Right hand ring’ or ‘Fashion Rings’ is what the jeweler called them. 

You see, Sometimes she can raise a big fuss, no I don’t want to do that, I don’t want to go there…… but when i press her to do it, all of sudden she says thank you, I really enjoyed that (rather sheepishly, granted). On our anneversary I lied to her that we were going skiing, when really I had booked a guided tour to go caving. She wasn’t impressed. Until she actually went Caving. Now we’ve gone back a couple of times, and she brags about it to her friends.

Buts she’s frustrated I’m ignoring her a bit regarding her desire not to have a diamond. Especially one that sticks up.  Sometimes I think she has forgotten we’re engaged. Or, perhaps she’s worried the Diamond (actually more like Mossinite for us) might not be to her liking , so she should start out smaller/cheaper with a more modest piece of jewelry. (but I’m only going to marry her once) 

I know at times she doesn’t think she’s very pretty. But she is to me. and to others too. Perhaps its partly a battle of the Diamond glamour feel vs her tender self esteem, not worthy feeling. Or, she just wants to look different. Mostly she wants to fit in, and far under the radar…. clipping coupons and driving and old rusting car the whole time.

I think for solution, I want to ask if her mother would let her wear their Engagement Ring and W Band for a few days just to see how it feels in real life. Sound like a good/bad plan?

 

I want her to Love, Love, Love it just like the way Dolly feels about her ring, not just for the next month but the rest of her life. I fear her desired ring might not last the test of time.
