skilledoveranalyzer :   Starts chanting open it open it open it open it !   I’ve got to say some of the bees have a really good point so I would just open the box!  Or start showing him rings that you like!!!!  Now the suspense is killing us lol  😂

Good job not opening it!! I’d wait and see. Maybe you’ll be surprised at how well he did. If not, you can either ask for a different ring, or push for an upgrade in the future. I sometimes wish the quality of my diamond was a bit better, but I don’t really say anything now. I’m thinking maybe 5th anniversary will be a good time for a trade up (mine is Kay’s and they have an upgrade program for diamonds).

I would totally open it. Fiance and I picked my ring together, but he knows how picky I am and how hard it is to shop for me. We discussed everything – from the color of the diamond to the number of prongs, thickness of the band and number of side stones. I would hate to be stuck with anything less than my dream ring. If you peek now you will have time to potentially redirect him towards something you like better.

Congrats on the ring and on the engagement. I am glad you had the fortitude to leave the box unopened.

Beautiful ring!!!! I don’t think I would’ve been able to help but look in the box! Good for you and what a wonderful job he did!
