We have been engaged for 6 months and I have tried and tried, but I REALLY do not like my engagement ring. I had always liked pear shaped rings, but we had never shopped together, so I had not seen it in person. The “idea” pictures I would show him did not look anything like the one he gace me. He designed the ring himself, so I feel terrible even saying anything. He rushed in getting it because he only started shopping 3 weeks before he actually got it. The center stone is 1ct and the 6 stones total a little over .5 cts.
I should be put on a butcher’s block for even saying anything about it because it was a gift, but it is not my taste, not my style, and really nothing i like to wear…

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?

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.

Ladies! Thank you so much for the comments and support! It is not somuch the ring or the gesture, it’s the fact that it was not particularly what i wanted. I would have liked a halo setting or an emerald cut. It is a lovely ring, but i don’t feel like it fits with what i already own. I was thinking about going to the jeweler on my own to see what they could do to adjust the setting then ask for the changes as a Christmas present (sisnce we got engaged on christmas, maybe we can be making her tradiditons!!! haha). I love the pear, it’s just something about it i’m not 100% wild about 🙁

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?
