- Wedding: August 2015
He proposed….as soon as I said yes! He opened the box and I opened my eyes so wide(thinking…NOOOOOOOO!!!!) I immediately hated it. There’s nothing to say except “it’s not me” as we walked back to the car things were awkward. He asked me if I like it and I HAD to tell him since I have to wear it for the rest of my LIFE!!!! I told him it was very pretty but not my style at all. He said we could go back to the store and pick out something that was more my style. BUT!!! Then he mentioned that his X Fiance upgraded her ring 4x(her ring was approx $10-$12,000) And that he had a bad experience with her and her ring and if I take mine back to do it once and that’s it.(My ring looks like it’s worth $1000 or less) I told him no prob. I asked him if he had the receipt and he said yes but that his sister helped him buy it? Maybe he used her credit card? I don’t know. He took his mom and sister to pick it out. They don’t have a clue of what I like. I asked him to take my cousin and aunt. I sent him several pics of rings I liked. I also sent them to my cousin which he had been consulting with via texts and pics. My looks NOTHING like what I asked for. He said the store didn’t have anything like it. THIS IS A MAJOR PURCHASE!!!! Why wouldn’t you shop around???!!! Knowing him, he just wanted to hurry up and get it over with. We have had plenty of time to go change the ring and he hasn’t mentioned it at all!!!! It’s been a few weeks and he keeps asking if everyone likes it. I say yes because who’s going to tell me my ring is ugly?! My main issue with the ring is it has to many halos and tiny diamond chips everywhere…I wanted a pretty decorative band with diamonds(non traditional) This 1st pic is what I wanted and the 2nd on my finger is what I got. I really hate the 2 halos on the main middle stone. It looks like you’re trying to make the stone bigger by an illusion. It gets stuck in my gloves at work and is uncomfortable and pinches my finger with the gloves on.
