Like you said, buy it for yourself!  Or maybe you could phrase it as an anniversary/wedding present from him to you.

Ummm….not quite sure how I would broach the subject.

I see that you’ve been hinting but you may want to wait it out for a few weeks until after wedding. He may have caught onto your hints and plans on giving you something new as a surprise.

If after the wedding he hasn’t given you anything new, I would sit him down and ask him for a new one as opposed to just hinting.

Are you certain he’s not planning to surprise you with a new ring at your wedding? Darling Husband has trouble surprising me and I always work myself up over things that I really should just let play out. Just a thought!

I agree! Just take the lead on this one. You can even buy him one too :). There’s nothing wrong with buying something when you can comfortably afford it.

I would say be up front about it. My Fiance and I have already talked about upgrading and said that I could if I wanted to at a much later date of course.

@Klb5882: I agree

Just be honest about it.

Buy it yourself, or just tell him you’d love to have a new ring now that you can afford one.

Big church wedding, big ceremony, new chapter in life, new ring!  Makes sense to me.  =)

Can you get them re-polished for now?

Are you guys not getting wedding rings? Is he just going to have you wear your e-ring and leave it at that?

If so…tell him how you really want to get wedding rings…not just an e-ring. Then maybe instead of a standard band…you can get more of an “e ring” looking ring 🙂

I would approach him about it! You guys have been together for quite some time now, and a new ring is deserved! haha. Go for it

@samora:hi there.  my hubby and i are renweing our wedding vows in oct. to celebrate 20 years of marriage,.  we really had a knock out drag out arguments about me wanting a new ring.  he thought the one i wanted was to expensive (5,000).  i had to remind him that he gets new cars when he wants them and not when he NEEDS them.  I got my beautiful eternity band and when he saw how much it appraised for (much much more than he paid for it) he was actually excited.  sometimes you just gotta be honest.
