OMG!! I dont even know where to start. I orginally wanted a pear shaped Morganite which my Fiance hated. In the excitement of the moment I choose my current ring because i absolutely loved it. I’ve never been a diamond girl so i can’t tell you one thing abiut the ring besides I thught it was unique and beautiful. Now my Fiance is in love with princess cut diamonds and orginally wanted to get me one but I talked her out of it. After a judgemental pause from several family members she has made several comments about wanting to upgrade *Engaged 7 months* because she doesnt think people like it. Now i’m catching mysef hiding my hand whenever im around people because I think everyone is judging it.. What should I do????????? Literally just broke down crying

The only thing I would be thinking if I were looking at your ring is ‘ooooooh pretty’.
It is gorgeous, unique, and certainly packs a punch. I would not have put this in the small stone category.

don’t hide your hand! There is no shame in a symbol of love. None! you say your Fiance wants to upgrade, how do you feel about it?

That’s a beautiful ring, in my opinion! Nothing to be ashamed of there 🙂 Not every style of ring will be everyone’s cup of tea – that’s not your problem!

Personally, I think it is beautiful. The design of it is SO unique! I love rings that focus on intricate detail as opposed to a whopping stone. I have never seen a ring like it and it really fits your finger beautifully!

I think it is really pretty and unique at the same time. I know it’s easier said than done, but who cares what others think. If you love it, then that is all that matter.

You can never make everyone happy. If you go bigger people will probably complain that it’s “too much” or “gaudy”.
Wear what you love!

its insanely beautiful and unique. Do not ever hide that thing, its amazing. It suits your hand perfectly, talk to your fiance, let her know that the ring is everything you want it to be and she needn’t be ashamed of it.

Your ring is stunning! I’d be showing that off left and right! 😉

That is so cool! I’ve never seen a ring like that, and I think that is a really big factor in what makes it so neat. Who cares what other people think? They don’t have to wear it. It is beautiful, it suits your hand, F the haters.

It’s pretty and it’s hardly small. I don’t get it though… your fiancee is female as well, yes? Why doesn’t she have a ring she wants and you have the one you want? I can see a male fiance wanting a share in his future wife’s diamond, but she can have her own! Anyway don’t hate on it – it’s pretty, it’s unique, it’s far more interesting to look at than the same run of the mill ring that ‘everyone else’ has.

There’s no need whatsoever to be “ashamed” of that gorgeous ring that you’re rocking. It doesn’t matter what other people think or feel about your ring because it’s a symbol of the love between you and your fiance.
I have a small diamond solitaire engagement ring that I’ve cried over. and was very self conscious about. I didn’t pick it but it’s was my hubby worked so hard to surprise me with. Years later after a wedding, buying a house, and having a baby I look back thinking about how silly I was over a ring.

I love your ring!
I think sometimes people assume that everyone will be as obsessed about the ring as they are but outside of these forums, I don’t find many people think too much about rings. Could it just be that less people went on about how stunning it is than you guys were anticipating so you’ve interpreted that as everyone dislikes the ring? I can’t see how anyone wouldn’t think this is beautiful and if you love it (and what it symbolises) then that’s the most important thing!

that ring is simply gorgeous, very unique design.

I read the whole story before I looked at the picture and your ring literally made me say “Woah” out loud to myself because of how stunning it is. IMO it is GORGEOUS and I would have said looks quite large.
That being said, I also got ‘blinded by diamonds’ when I went to pick out my pink sapphire ering but came to my senses the next day and went back to change it to what I originally wanted. Those store lights are good! 😉 If you REALLY want something different and won’t be able to be happy with your current ring then go for what you want and get a redesign. Good luck and I hope you’ll let us know what you decide!
