You guys, I think I made a mistake by altering my engagement ring! I don’t know if I love it anymore. I LIKE it but I don’t know if I truly LOVE it.I am so nervous to show this ring to Howard!
The first (6) are photos of the ring AFTER the alterations.The last (3) photos are pictures of the ring BEFORE the alterations. Thanks for your help.
My mom said that she liked the engagement ring before the alterations. My sister said that it doesn’t have that WOW factor anymore and my daughter says that it looks alright. I AM DEVASTATED by their responses!
In the last pictures notice how high the center diamond is. It was just too high and I didn’t feel that I would be able to wear it like that for years to come. I would always snag it on things and it was uncomfortable to sleep while wearing it. When I would run my fingers through my hair, it would always get tangled.
I have also included some side views of my ring before and after. Look at how industrial it looks. It really didn’t look feminine at all from the side views.
I don’t know guys, what are your honest opinions? Should I take it back to the jewelers or should I just keep it the way that it is? The jewelers changed the platinum head on this ring 3 times and told me that the only other thing that they do is to exchange it back to it’s original look. They also gave me the option of just choosing a different setting using my same center stone. He basically said that in order to keep he integrity of the ring, he wouldn’t do anything but return it back to it’s original look. I would hate to decide on another setting considering that Howard and my sister picked this one out for me and plus, I LOVE THIS RING! Just to think that my sister had a hand in picking it out makes me smile even harder when I look at it.
I know Howard spent a lot of money and time on this ring, I don’t want to hurt his feelings or appear ungrateful by exchanging it out for an entirely different ring. I am hoping that he won’t even notice the new change! What are your opinions?
