@Prettyowleyes: Oooh, I have that band ring (the one you wanted) It was my original wedding band, the one we got to work as both engagement and wedding band, and I LOVE it and still wear it as my RHR. We got it from Ritani, and it’s called the Endless Love wedding band. You can get one with 5 halos (a half eternity, which would be more comfortable, although it’s not what I have) for about $4500. The full eternity is (or was) $8500. You \might be able to convince him of it if you tell him you won’t need an additional wedding band with it. Here’s mine:

Thank you for all the raw advice….. I really appreciate everyone taking the time to post pics of rings/bracelets and trying to help me out….Bottom line is I should be grateful(which I am)and I have to figure out if this ring will grow on me…..today we were laying on the couch and my ring was facing him and he looked at it and smiled and gave my ring like 10 little soft kisses…he seemed so proud….and I am to…..I’ll keep you all posted xoxo

I really like the ring he got.. It is similiar to the round ones you posted. But, it is also unique. I haven’t seen a 3 stone, double halo, like that. I really like it! Maybe it will grow on you. Give it a week, if it doesn’t, than bring up exchanging it.. But, honestly, sounds like his ex-fiance’ really was a pain about her ring. Exchanging hers 4 times.. So, he may be hurt if you do too..
You can always get a nice wedding band you love, and wear your e-ring as a rhr.. That is an option too.

Your fiance attempted to get you something you like, but you don’t. Take the lead and get something you love. Go to the jewelry store he went to and understand their return/ exchange policy. Find out what you can do in case the jewelry store doesn’t have you want. I get that you may feel slighted because he spent so much more on his exes ring, but if he bought you somethibg you lived off the bat the price of your e-ring wouldn’t matter. Unless you plan on kicking in for your ring, talk to him about a budget he is compfrotable with before you shop for a different ring.

The Tiffany circlete ( full eternity band) is what I picked out at the store. Ive never been a fond of the trdaitional single stone.
I tried on other platnium ‘micro pave style’ bands with the circlete– with the intent as my wedding band. None were really working. I thought outside the box and asked to try on a gold micro pave and wow-! Classy, soooo pretty and unique.
Some may feel it’s unromantic to choose your own ring. I think some men may appreciate direction and our voice when trying to make such a weighing decision- especially with so many design options available in 2104.
When looking at my ring ( everyday on my hand! ) I would like it to representitive of my feeings for the one I have chosen: gratitude, fondness and love.

At first when I read this I was a little angry. That being said, if I were in your situation I would probably be a little upset too. You spent time trying to send him pictures of something you would like and he somewhat disregarded them and just made a quick purchase without shopping around. On his part that was kind of ridiculous. For something so important, attention should be paid. I don’t feel you’re wrong for disliking your ring, you like what you like. If you give it some time you may find you actually love it, especially if he feels so proud of it like you mentioned.
