Very nice story – I have loved my ring since the moment I laid eyes on it, it’s exactly what I would have picked for myself (apparently he listened closer than I thought!), but I definitely feel nekkid without it!

Love your story. I think many can “learn” from you. I love my ring. I know that he preferred another ring but bought my choice instead. That said, now you cna look forward to anniversary upgrades. ๐Ÿ™‚

Seriously, I have turned around and went back home to get my ring because I also feel naked without it. I still look at it sometimes and marvel that he asked me to marry him.

We can get caught up in the maddness sometimes, especially when others offer their opinions on our rings.

I love this. Thank you for being so honest about your journey! I know many girls on here have admitted their unhappiness with their ring, but it really is about the commitment that you are about to make with the man you love. It’s nice to know that someone who was insecure about their ring was able to embrace it.

@Oribel013690: I’d love to see a picture too!

 

Thanks for the story. I sometimes have second thoughts on my ring too (the setting, not the stone), but you are right.  I’d totally miss it if it were gone and I don’t want another one.

Welcome to the Bee!

My ring size (American) is 7, my ring is a .20 princess cut solitaire…and I have very very small hands.  Think the size of an average 8 year olds.  So tiny, stumpy, fat fingers.

With anything larger than a .50 I feel too self concious about my hands…I get at least 2 comments about them a week anyway!  I actually returned my half carat ring for the one I now have. I’m still engaged and my ring sparkles alot, so I’m happy.

I love that you wrote this. I feel that I have been seeing a lot on here lately about people unhappy with their rings. It is dissapointing to think that we live in a world where it is so hard to find someone to spend the rest of our lives with, and yet there are still people that say their ring is not good enough. It makes me sad to think that the actual meaning of an engagement ring is easily overlooked.

When my Fiance proposed on our 2 year anniversary, he said: “I didn’t buy you a card for this anniversary because your gift says everything.” (The gift being the ring and he knows I always look forward to his cards). That’s what the point of the ring is…it.means.everything. If someone gives you one, it is to symbolize how they feel about you and what you mean to them. Not some flashy gem on your finger to make others notice you or compete to see whose is bigger. Thank you soooo much for writing this post, @MissTillie !!!!

I can understand where you’re coming from but I think you need to be careful not to imply that women who aren’t satisfied with their rings need to get over themselves or swallow their pride. Rings and proposal come with a lot of emotions and history and expectations surrounding them, and it is different for every couple. I hope your story helps someone out, though, and good for you.
