I would really appreciate your help.
So Fiance agreed to let me pick my own ring, which I was SUPER happy about doing. So we went to a few places in the mall and I ended up picking a ring from Helzberg… I do like it, he even upgraded it to a .5 carat without my knowledge. But I am no longer in love with it. It does not fit my personality. Its really a beautiful ring. I’m not trying to be a diva or ungrateful, when I chose the ring I was like a kid in a candy store, I wanted everything I saw. I don’t know how to tell him that the ring is not me! He is a very sweet and loving guys who always wants to make me happy, but the drawback this sweet and loving nature is that he is VERY sensitive.
Ladies I would really really love your input!!

If you choose it in the first place, then he shouldn’t be hurt if you dont love it now, right? I would tell him asap while he can still return/exchange it for something different.

So I think your ring is gorgeous–but thats me. If you don’t love it–maybe for your 5 year anniversary you can upgrade to a new band? Or, you can get the wedding band that really fits your personality to spice up the e-ring?
I think for our 5 year anniversary–we are going to get a bigger diamond

I also really love your ring. What don’t you like about it/ what do you want to change? Also – how long ago did you get engaged? Did he just give you the ring or have you had it for a while?
Sorry for the 20 questions, but I think it makes a difference. If he just gave you the ring, I think it’s normal to second guess yourself/ feel unsure about such a big purchase. My fiance’s family gave us a diamond for my engagement ring. At first I wasn’t so sure about it – it’s definitely not something I would have picked out for myself – but we’re poor grad students and I love the idea of “family stone” so I (happily) went with it. But now, despite initially feeling so-so about the diamond, I wouldn’t trade this ring for a million, trillion dollars. Five months after getting engaged, I still catch myself staring at it and smiling. I guess my point is that just because you don’t love the ring right now, doesn’t mean you won’t love it in a few days/ weeks.
Maybe give it some time? If you still feel the same way in a week or two, then it might be time to talk to your fiance. But if you’re still getting used to the ring, give yourself a couple weeks to come around. It really is beautiful!

We went to a few store at the mall for the most part I kind of picked it out, by hinting at things that I liked (mayeb I hinted at too many things) but he got me exactly what I thought I wanted, he asked me March 12th of this year. I just see all of the pictures of e-rings that the ladies post here, and everyone just has such beautiful rings. These are two that I really liked, they are from Shaneco.com
I guess I just have a bad case of ring envy… (yuck)
