soy:  I agree. When I read that I thought, “yikes!” Lol


I’m so thankful for my husband. To us, a ring is just that…a ring. If I didn’t like it he wouldn’t mind changing it and vice versa for me. I don’t understand why OP is a “spoiled brat.” I could understand if she was saying the diamond isn’t big enough or something like that.

That is a gorgeous ring… very pretty and classic.  Lesson to be learned: tell him what you want when he asks, because you knew exactly what you wanted although you said ‘I don’t know’.  You wanted oval and you wanted vintage, you wanted a certificate, etc…  

Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

Unless you told him you didn’t care what you got, then he is the one who created the drama.  He bought you a ring, from a store that does not accept returns and THEN he tries to find out if you’re going to like it.  THEEEENNN he makes you feel bad for not liking what he picked out even though you had no idea he had made the purchase.  This is not something you could have fixed if you had acted differently.  You weren’t given that option. You gave him good information based on what he was asking. 


Ladies, it doesn’t matter if you think the ring is pretty.  She doesn’t.   Her boyfriend may have had good intentions, but the way he went about this has created a bad feeling about the ring she is meant to wear for the rest of her life.

OP, I can’t tell you what will make this better, but I can tell you that you have no reason to feel badly.  Anyone would have done the same you did under the circumstances.  He is projecting his regrets onto you, and making you be responsible for his feelings.
