I think it’s very sweet he got swept up in the excitement of the engagment and buying you a dream ring, however, he should realize that sales people are not your friend, they will sell you a bad deal and not care, they are looking out for their commission. Yall will have a long, unnecessarily expensive life together if he cannot grasp this fact soon. And the most important point: YOU ALWAYS SLEEP ON A LARGE PURCHASE!!! Even if you’re sure you would get it anyway the next day, you just do it when you’re spending a huge gob of money so that this doesn’t happen. THERE IS ALWAYS ANOTHER PIECE OF JEWELRY (or car, or house…)

He was being very sweet, you’re right! We talked about it today and he understands where I am coming from now and will be returning the ring this week. Thank you for the kind words and advice, I truly appreciate it.

I love your wedding band, it truly complements your engagement ring!
OP, my fiance purchased my engagement ring with Blue Nile – he read tons of reviews and did a ton of research before purchasing. The ring is beautiful – better quality than if you were to buy the ring at franchise jewellery and at a better price as well. We ended up getting a 1 carat center diamond + a beautiful setting for less than what we would have purchased at a franchise jewellery store, and that ring wa only .5 carat!
