Be happy for the gift, if not the surprise.

Its very possible it may not be the one!  I personally would stay away from the site, although I personally would struggle from doing so!  Hopefully if you get any more comments they more supportive!

When you make a wish list, that kind of ruins the element of surprise to begin with.

if you let this “ruin” your Christmas gift, you’re being silly. The ring is a lovely gift whether or not it is a complete surprise   (Which it can’t be since you told him what to buy in the first place).

Well, like you said you really don’t know if he was the one who bought it….so…it will still be a surprise. ..kinda, right? I ruin my surprise every year by picking out my gift. ..lol

I wouldn’t say christmas is ruined. i think it’s all in your perspective. I would look at it like, you might be getting exactly what you want.

There are plenty of ‘surprises’ in life, not all of them good.

If you sent him a list of items then it wasn’t much of a surprise anyway. Be grateful you’ve got a beautiful ring.

waroftheroses:  Like you and others have said, you don’t know whether he has bought it or not. And also keep in mind that you have not seen the piece in person so… The excitement can still be there. Seeing it in photos and in real life are two different things.
