    Well, you’ve voiced your preference, if he presents you with a ring you don’t like, it won’t be the end of the world. You can always reset it later on if you want. And I wouldn’t go with silver, it won’t hold up to every day wear.

    My proposal was a total surprise. I had no idea it was coming, so voicing an opinion was never something that ever came to mind. Was it something that I would have picked, no. However, I ended getting the most amazing wrap for my ring, that I love and adore and is so unique, it transformed my e-ring into something better than I could have ever imagined. 

    I love that my husband picked it out for me all on his own. That it was more…traditional I guess, or how it used to be. I love that part of it so much. When people compliment it, the reaction when I say Darling Husband picked it all out on his own is a great compliment.

    I love my ring because it was my Grandmother’s, but I wish he would have gone and actually picked one out for me. He says he felt that when my Grandma gave it to me, she was telling me I needed to get married and he thought that she intended the ring to be engagement ring…I really want something that is mine.

    @reine_de_rien:   Do you have a picture of the ring?  I would love to see it.

    i think you may find that you love whatever he gives you.  sometimes having too precise an idea of what you want takes some of the fun out of it, and I have to say guys often do a great job.  it sounds like the heart cut is most important to you, so i wouldn’t worry about the setting so much as be open to him suprising you and making it his own for you.

    Yes, but that doesn’t change a thing. I wear it, and would be devesdated if something happened to it.

    @reine_de_rien:   Oh my goodness!  It is lovely.  I was just thinking the other day that I would have loved to have a vintage family ring to wear.  LOL  It really is true that we seem to want the very thing that we don’t have.  I love your ring and wish I had one just like it (history and all).  Beautiful.

    To be honest, sometimes I look at my e-ring and think it looks a little small. I see other girls saying, “I couldn’t do anything under a carat,” and I feel like maybe mine should have been bigger. For that, I love you girls from the UK. 😀 I also wonder if maybe I should’ve gone all diamond, but then I remember that I love sapphire.

    However, I would never call myself disappointed. I always come back to the fact that the ring really is beautiful, but more importantly, Fiance gave it to me. Regardless of some split-second thoughts, I love it, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I can’t even imagine upgrading it.

    @MrsFuzzyFace: Thank you. It’s the truth, though. It’s always the opposite of what you have, lol.

    I would have to agree with a couple of the ladies that have said to just have confidence in your fella. Fiance and I argued a lot about this, which is all my fault since I could have just taken a chill pill and let him do what he wanted. It will all turn out wonderfully, I’m sure. So excited for you!

    If you feel so strongly about it and are comfortable, you could show him some pictures (again if you already have) of what you do like, and say that while what he likes is nice, it’s just not you and you really want to feel comfortable with your ring.

    I know everyone says you’ll be happy with what he gives you, and I think that’s probably true at first (my Fiance proposed with a dime taped to a keyring and as funny as it is I have no pictures! didn’t even think of it) but you’ll be wearing it for life and want to like looking at it.

    When Fiance and I jokingly looked at rings once, we discovered we have VERY opposite tastes. It wasn’t hard to convince him that I wanted a ring I like, but some guys are sensitive so make sure to be gentle and if he’s obviously not responsive in the end, it’s not worth arguing over.

    Well on the bright side, if it’s over-the-top gaudy, thieves might assume it’s fake and leave you alone. 😉
