Because society has brainwashed him that he’s got to put the Hope Diamond on your finger!

If you’re happy to wait, then wait. The size/cost of the ring is a matter of pride to some men, and it’s not worth wounding his pride over this. You could always try to make a bigger fuss over the tiny things he does for you daily, or the small thoughtful things he buys (I’m talking small like ice cream) to reinforce that you’re happy with inexpensive but meaningful gestures. But if he’s got an idea in his head over what the ring should be, do your best to let him have his dream.

I don’t think he’s brainwashed–it is important to him that he buys you a diamond ring. It’s really a gift so the giver is the one who ultimately decides on what the ring will be. If it’s so important to him, why wouldn’t you let him switch out the center stone for a diamond later? It would still be the same ring, and the other stone could be made into a pendant. My guess is if you can agree to that, you’re never really going to switch it out anyway because he’ll see that the ring is gorgeous and you’re happy with it.

I would say yes he could replace it, on our 10th wedding anniversary. 🙂

 I think no matter what the ring, its something he is doing for you to show his love. The price or stone doesn’t matter (especially when you put on  a wedding band a little while later.)
