I’m sorry, I think its beautiful. But pears aren’t for everyone, so I understand. I have a pear, but that’s what I wanted. Would a different setting make you any happier? Or do you want a different shape altogether?

Your stone is nice and bright – maybe even a D!! Sorry you’re not crazy about your setting.

I’m sorry you’re unhappy. I can understand your stress in that I have no idea what I’d do if I got a ring I didn’t like. I actually think yours in beautiful, but everyone’s style is different. For me, it would be something asymmetrical that could drive me crazy, which I made sure my bf knows. Is there a type of wedding ring you can pair it with that would balance it out in a way that would help you feel more comfortable?

I think it’s very pretty. I’m so sorry you don’t like it. Maybe down the road you can redesign for a anniversary or something to a setting you like

I think it’s beautiful, especially the stone. 

What are you not liking about it? 

You could possibly have it reworked. Have the smaller stones put in a channel setting?

futuremagikarp:  First off, I get it, you feel awful, but you can’t say things like “I should be on a butcher block for this.” I also (sort of) received a ring I didn’t like and it was a whole hullabaloo and no one enjoyed being a part of it. However, you have to be honest with your fiance. This is your ring and you have to wear it, not him. The stones he chose are lovely, so maybe you can rework the setting together? Do you think the band is too large? Have it shaved. Too small? It can be widened. If you’ve discovered that pear cut is not your cut, I’m sure the jeweler has options for you. Maybe you could check out enhancers. Good luck, sweetie, don’t beat yourself up too much.

I’m sorry you don’t like your ring. I think it’s lovely for what it’s worth.

What is it you dislike about it?

Edit: Just saw your post. Maybe you could later talk about getting it reset with a halo? A pear halo might be nice?
