    You chose the ring, you could have waited until you got home. You loved it at the time, you will love it again 🙂

    id change it. your stuck with it forever otherwise and will be unhappy. hindsight is a pain!!!

    before you tell your fiancee though i would check out pawn stores as you say before you do in case you cant swap it or something and hurt his feelings for no reason …..

    I would imagine it’s not nearly as bad as you feel it is.  I cannot advocate you “losing” it or anything else like that….comparing your ring to the others your friends have is pretty destructive, I would stop that if I could.  And remember, you still need a wedding band, perhaps you have an opportunity to pair your e-ring with a band that compliments it…or a trade in for a stand alone that you prefer.

    I am sorry you feel this way. It sounds really beautiful. It doesn’t sound like its not your taste anymore, just that maybe you don’t love it as much as you wished you did. Seeing so many other rings can def cause this.

    Have you thought of maybe getting a right hand ring for an anniversary? One with another shape that you like?

    Most of the time you can take it back and get a refund and pick a different one……how long have you had it??

    I just returned a diamond for a different one with no hassle. Many of us have had ring regret. But princess cuts are beautiful! (I have one…lol) We would love to see a pic!

    Maybe focus on finding a kick-ass wedding band for now?  If you stay unhappy with the ring, you could upgrade for an anniversary.

    I agree that hindsight can be 20/20, but in this siutation I think you should let it go and learn how to fall in love with your ring again.  It’s really a matter of putting it to rest in your mind.  Also….you loved this ring until other external influences came into the picture.  Trust me, Pinterest doesn’t have emotions that will get hurt by you wanting a new ring, but your fiance probably does.

    If I bought my partner an expensive ring of her own choosing and then she told me she changed her mind and wanted a different one, I’d be devastated.

    @Jabberwocky:  +1. Upgrading at a later date is always a great option. If you don’t love it in 2 or 3 years, upgrade!

    It also might help to give it a good cleaning and make it super sparkly again.

    I think you need to learn to love it for now… but maybe just changing the stone and keeping your setting could be an option. If not now, could be for an anniversary
