It is hard not to feel a little jealousy every once in a while, so you are normal 🙂 Learn to love your ring, and you can always add to it later. Have you picked out your wedding band yet? Get a blinged out band, if that will help the way you feel a little bit. Good Luck! and Welcome!!! Laughing

@cago86: Jealosy is normal. Just remind yourself when you see them though that they don’t get the best part of your marriage, your husband!

Maybe you could get a ring wrap to add more bling to your ring.

yes, PP is right… remember you get YOUR husband…and you love him for who he is & what your marriage will be, and not how much money he spent on your engagement ring.

It’s ok! Hopefully no one is going to judge you, especially if you just want to vent! I know that similar questions have been asked before in the past, but I can’t find them right now. Try asking for advice or support over in rings with a more specific title- http://boards.weddingbee.com/board/rings

I’m sure there are lots of bees on here who have gone through a similar thing!

you have nothing to feel sorry about because you have a wonderful husband and a ring size does not represent the amount of love he has for you.

Hi.

I have a ring wrap for my e-ring.  Maybe you could get one.

Also, here is a thread I started about them.

Show me your wedding ring wrap

I completely get it, so no judgement here either. Ask to upgrade for an anniversary- that’s what we’re doing! From what I’ve seen & because it relects them as well, men love to hear the large rock compliments just as much as thier women do….

You can always add more bling, but you can’t change your Darling Husband 🙂 While diamonds are nice, I think what they symbolize is the important thing. That said, everyone has different needs when it comes to an engagement ring. I personally would have been upset if Darling Husband had gotten me a smaller diamond, but we have the means and desire to get a bigger one now instead of starting small and one day upgrading. Just because I wanted a big diamond though doesn’t mean I look down on smaller ones, or if someone wanted a gemstone instead. Every ring is unique and beautiful in its own way. Everyone feels differently about what a beautiful e-ring looks like.

During my first marriage, we upgraded at 10 and then at 20.  We didnt make it to 25, but I got the bling still.

I can understand feeling a little down. It happens sometimes. I doubt when I get engaged my Boyfriend or Best Friend will be able to afford a bolder of a rock but I think of it like this…

Would you trade your husband for any of your friends with a big ole’ rock husbands? Probably not because they probably don’t compare to your guy. Let your husband be your bling and not the ring.  I love to show off my boyfriend and talk about how great of a man he is.

I totally understand that- I dropped hints and stuff to my Fiance – mind you they were VERY affordable suggestions. My Fiance happened to get a family ring and he gave that to me- it is the most plain gold band with a solitaire you have ever seen.

I would never dream of telling him I think the band is ugly & I hate wearing gold & prefer white gold.

I have never told a soul- I tell my Fiance the DIAMOND is pretty, lol, but never say anything about the ring. I definitely plan on selling the gold and upgrading to a pretty ring in a couple of years.

So its normal to not like your ring! But like others have said, you don’t have to keep it. It’s your ring, you can upgrade it as soon as you think appropriate.
