If it was me, I’d definitely go ahead and get your dream ring. It might be a bit of added stress to sort out, but you won’t be able to get the rings out of your head until you’re satisfied. As long as you and your FH are okay with the decision to change the ring, then go for it. x

I say go for it…get the ring that makes you happy, especially since you can afford it

I was in a similar situation… we have been engaged for almost 3 years I picked my ring out a year ago Fiance didn’t like it when I picked it out but got it because it made me happy. It was on layaway for almost a year. On V-Day Fiance picked it up without me knowing and finally gave me my official proposal while we took our e-pics. Right away I didn’t even recognize it the ring I had been dreaming about for a year. Fiance realized that I didn’t like it even though I never said a word. He insisted we go back and exchange it. The store refused to take it back because they had a 10 day return policy so I was stuck with a ring neither one of us liked. The next day he took me to another store and we found a ring I could only dream of. It put us a lil over our budget but we both feel like it was worth it.

My advice to you woule be don’t settle

After reading your post it sounds like there may be some issues surrounding the fact  that he chose to buy you a more modest ring (what he referred to as a “cheap ring”) and that (1) you have enough money to have purchased a bigger ring (2) you did not specify that you wanted a more modest ring (3) he purchased a large tv that cost more than your ring. I do NOT want to put words in your mouth so please let me know if I am wrong about these. However, if I am not wrong then maybe you are feeling a little hurt or undervalued? Again, I am not saying that you were undervalued, I’m just trying to figure out how you are feeling and to validate your feelings. I just want to make sure that you work through your feelings surrounding the ring so that when you do talk to your Fiance you are able to articulate exactly how you feel and what you want.

I would go ahead and get the dream set now to have it for the wedding, especially if you can afford it and are not very happy with the set you have now.
