Well since your ring was half that of the original budget—why not suggest that Fiance pay for the difference.  you can pay the $1000 as originally planned and he can handle the rest if it’s a ring he really wants.

I know you feel it’s not “him”, but if he loves it–that shoudl be all that matters.  He’s going to be wearing it everyday.  Do you have a picture of it? 

**um, Fiance and I just went through this.  Not the price part…but the part of him loving a ring that I didn’t like.  But in the end, whatever!  I’m just glad he’s going to wear it and like it.

I agree, if that is what he really really liked, just have him pay the difference after the $1000 that you apply to it, since after all he saved a bunch on your ring.  I mean really, men hardly get lavish gifts from us women.  They deserve this one nice “bling” item.  Wouldn’t you agree?  I know I would be really disappointed if I didn’t get to have the ring I ultimatley wanted.

I am really curious to see pics of the rings for your man — the one he thought he wanted, and the one he ended up with!

As for paying the difference… you guys are getting married. You’ll have a joint account I’m sure.. What’s yours will be his and vice versa. The money you need to be saving ought to be saved regardless of whose account it is coming from now, don’t you think?

I agree the other posters. It may not be what you expect him to get but if he loves it, why not? My SO got diamonds too, which I didn’t expect, but he also told me if he had picked out my engagement ring without any help from me he would have gotten something completely different than what I wanted. 🙂 Do you have pictures of them? I’m interested in seeing them both!
