    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!
