I love opals and have been bought three opal rings over the years, just as rings, not as engagement rings. The nicest one got some kind of watre/solvent damage and is half clouded and ruined. I must have washed my hands or done something. The trouble with a ring you have to take off a lot to protect it, is you are much more likely to lose them or have them stolen. 

Stress these factors with your Fiance, who seems to have been thoughful and sweet.

If you are worried about offending him you could just wear it a couple of years and then ask about a change …

Oh man, I could see my SO proposing to me with the worst thing he could find – not as a test, just as a prank!!! Glad you bees brought this possibility to my attention, now I can be ready o_o;

Bobby Brown used the “ugly duckling ring” tactic when he proposed to Whitney Houston. Of course, being Bobby and Whitney, the ugly duckling ring was ONLY a few carats. The REAL ring was 10+.

wonderous:  Don’t tell him that you don’t like the ring but just honestly tell him that it’s a big ring and you’re worried about damaging it. Tell him that you keep knocking it and that you’re wondering if he would mind if you got it re-set and purchased a simpler ring to wear as an every-day e-ring. ๐Ÿ™‚ You could put the Opal in a heart-shaped pendant setting to wear around your neck for example, and get one of your favourite simple e-ring settings. I’m sure your Fiance will totally understand as long as you don’t use the word ‘hate’ and just explain about your worries about practicality.

1st congrats on your engagement

 

2nd your ring is stunning and unique but the stone is to soft to wear every day

 

3rd tell your zsO that you love it and esnt to cherish it forever but you are a little clumsy with your hands ands and keep knocking it thus will at some point crack the stone

I missed the previous post, but why did your Fiance decide to propose with a vintage opal ring? Is that your style? Don’t feel guilty for not liking it. I agree with the idea of e-mailing the seller and asking if it can be exchanged, or gently tell your Fiance that you are so excited to be engaged but would like to look for a ring that is more versatile for every day wear.

Yay, I’m glad that he was understanding. Though I think the durability of an opal for everyday wear is a super valid concern.

Yay!! I’m so glad the talk went well. Opals are beautiful bit so delicate, wearing it ad an occasional right hand ring is a great idea. I can’t wait to see the new ring you guys chose, be sure to post pictures! again I’m so glad you talked to him ๐Ÿ™‚
