Well… why not just tell him? It’s not like he already bought it. Just say ” Hey what one ring with the x details I didn’t like that much. But the one that had the X I really liked a lot!” Easy peasy.

@Tarheelgurl:  Did you let him know when you were looking at it that you didn’t like it?

Hopefully he was listening and even though he liked it the most, he’ll listen a bit to what you would like. 

If a ring is not your style, it’s not your style I don’t think that it’s “bratty” to want to like the ring you are going to wear for the rest of your life.

Did you say anything when you were looking at it?  If he brought you to look at rings, he must value your input.  Just gently remind him that the one particular one you saw that day wasn’t your style.

@mixtapehearts:  I agree. He hasn’t bought it yet, and clearly he’s not trying to surprise you, so just be honest and tell him it’s not your style. Would he honestly want to buy you a ring he knows you don’t like?

If he hasn’t bought it, just be honest!

The whole point of shopping is to figure out what you like and don’t like, so speak up!

I think you need to just be upfront and honest with him and when you’re ring shopping let him know what you do and dont like about the rings you see. If you really dont like something, bring it up then. Good luck.

Just tell him, it’s ok to have a preference about the ring. If I’d left my husband to be 100% in charge he would have picked something along the lines of a Super Bowl ring!

@Tarheelgurl:  Good idea. He hasn’t bought it yet so now that you’re out of the store you can be honest. But you should be honest in he stores too. I’ve worked tons of retail and frankly dont really have much personally vested in any particular item so it doesnt hurt their feelings if you don’t like it.

I would just be honest and tell him I didnt like it.

Tell him what you dont like about it and see if you can move on from there. I dont see the problem with being honest and getting the ring you love and want to wear forever!

@Bostongrl25:  BINGO! why go shopping together if you aren’t going to give input on what you do/don’t like? Just say you weren’t a fan and would prefer moissy, x, whatever!

Shopping together is your chance to give feedback on what you want, so be as honest as possible. Do some prior research and find some styles you like that are in his budget, so he can see you aren’t just shooting everything down.
