I understand that he’d want to pick your ring, but seeing as how this ring speaks to you for so many reasons, you have a few choices. Keep it as an engagement ring and let him choose the wedding band (maybe a good compromise). Or use it as a right hand ring. It’s very pretty!

I think the ring and the sentimentality behind it is beautiful- as is that lovely and unique relationship you and your partner have! It seems like he understands completely and that you’ve got a good plan of action made! Another thought would be that he pick out the wedding band and surprise you with that instead of the engagement ring? It depends on how untraditional you are…but theoretically, he could propose with the wedding band and then you could get this ring re-sized and wear it until the wedding. That way, he still gets to pick out a ring on his own and surprise you with it, and you get to wear this one as an engagement ring!

Ps..I love the floral, tree, nature theme- that’s what we’re going for too. I love the bands from this etsy vendor as wedding bands btw: http://www.etsy.com/listing/100587137/the-wind-in-the-willows-titanium-wedding

I think what you have is a win/win – you get a gorgeous ring you love and can wear every day which marks a certain period in your relationship, and when your s/o proposes, you will get yet another beautiful, sentimental ring. If it’s really important to him to pick something out, AND you get the flower ring you love, I say let him pick you out another ring as well. Wink

@MrsSnowMountain:  It sounds like you got a good deal on this ring, and he isn’t going to go overboard on the one he chooses, so no worries! It’s something you’ll wear every day to symbolize your marriage. I don’t think you’re being materialistic at all.

Significance is really important to me, so I’m glad your rings is significant to you and that no matter what in the future you can still wear it and be happy with it.
