I think your Fiance is right. It shouldn’t matter if you love HIM and want to be with HIM. I think its kind of messed up that you wouldnt defend your FI’s choice. That is a symbol of his love that you are wearing around your finger after all.

If it’s not your style, it’s not your style. I understand, channel set isn’t my cup of tea either.

@MrsNeutrino: I agree with everything you said.

Plus I still think it’s a beautiful ring.  Enjoy what you do have, celebrate your engagement, and live life.  I hope you do grow to love it.

Does Tiffany have a upgrade policy?  Maybe you can get a different ring?

Honestly, ignore the rude comments. People love to be snobbish about other people’s e-rings.

Maybe deal with it for a few years and then ask him to upgrade it for an anniversary present?

@pinkshoes: They do… it has to be upgraded within 5 years of purchase and the new ring has to cost at least double what they appraise the old one for for. I think there’s a fee involved as well.

@Aquila: For what it’s worth, I think it’s beautiful. You have to do what makes you happy, though.

You have my exact ring – round brilliant with channel set diamonds. Mine is .74, so not much bigger than yours. I’ve had the oh, lovely! comments too – especially when theirs are bigger and brighter, but you know what? I don’t care. Nobody knows my ring is from Tiffany & Co unless they particularly ask… and what does it matter?

Of course, I’m biased, so I think your ring is smokin’ hot. 😉

@Aure: *double* its *apprasial* value?!  WOW.   That would be some serious upgrade.

Your Fiance is right. This ring is a symbol of your future union and the promise that you made to each other. If you like another ring better, then buy one for yourself eventually, but your e-ring is a present from him to you.

@pinkshoes: Yeah, I had looked into upgrading after I’d gotten a string of nasty comments (more than one about my .59ct Tiffany Lucida looking like a promise ring). When I brought it up with Fiance he looked at me like I was a crazy woman. Luckily I’ve gotten over it and realized that my ring is in fact perfect for me. I love it no matter what the morons of the world say. I’m in a bit of a different situation than the OP though, I picked my ring myself.

@Aquila: If it’s not your thing, it’s not your thing and you can’t help it.  Just wanted to add my two cents.

Darling Husband bought me a ring all by himself (no input from me, since I didn’t know he was planning!)  I really disliked it.  After a couple of months I started to “tolerate” it and we took it to the jeweler to get a wedding band custom made (the band curved).  Well they lost my e-ring.  I thought…that’s ok, now I can get the ring I want, but lately I’ve been to the point of tears because I don’t have the ring he proposed with.  I know it’s silly and it’s the symbolism…but it breaks my heart. 

Maybe take your ring off for a couple days (“forget” it at home…don’t want to offend DH!) and see what you feel like without it.  Do you miss it?  Maybe you like it more than you think.

Your ring is similar to mine, though it’s bead-set. It’s ok to not be happy about it. I’m biased but I think it’s gorgeous.

@Aure: Same here.
