If it’s still bothering you after all this time, get the diamond reset. Its pretty clear you hate the setting so there’s not a lot anyone can say to change your mind. Would you post a picture just so we bees could have a visual reference?

You are not a horrible woman.  Not loving your e-ring does not make you an ungrateful person.   This is the reason I got over my fear of accompanying my boyfriend to the jeweler because though I love a surprise….I always fear he’d pick out something that was terrible and then I’d be in this kind of situation.

It’s a tough one to be sure but I would reset that thing.  Luckily you have an easy way out.  You can just say it’s too high.  PLENTY of people I work with had to reset their rings because their guys got them Empire State Building sky high setting e-rings and they just got in the way constantly at work.  Caught on clothes, hair, gloves, everything.  Just tell your guy that you love the rock but it’s time for a new setting – it’s just not practical.

Keep the band, keep the stone, change the setting! It’s still mostly the same ring, and it’s the stone in the ring that holds the most value. Just tell you fiance and anyone that askes that you were worried about damaging the stone in such a high setting, and you feel more comfortable wearing it set lower.

@Mrs.Bunny:  I would totally reset it. You like your diamond (which is the most expensive part). Maybe you could find a setting you like at a jewelry store and just have your diamond set in it. Having a stone reset can be as little as $50. You could have your setting melted down to make a new setting (more $$$), or you could trade in your gold/platinum for part of the payment on the new setting. Seriously, it sounds like you really dislike it. There’s no reason to be wearing a ring forever that you don’t like!

Have it reset. Nothing to be ashamed of at all! It’s something you’re wearing every day and it needs to fit your lifestyle

There’s nothing wrong with you and you’re not a bad person. You have personal tastes in jewelry and since an e-ring is a piece of jewelry that you wear every day, it’s normal that you want it to fit your tastes. If it’s been bothering you this long, you should definitely have it reset.

I say if you hate it that much, get it reset.  I’d like to see a pic too.

I don’t think you are horrible at all!  We all have our likes and dislikes!  My Boyfriend or Best Friend asked me to pick out my ring, which I was really against, but he wanted me to because he knows I’m picky..and I’m really glad that I did!  

Even if I got a ring that I didn’t love, I would still love it because it was from him, as I’m sure you do.  I would say reset the ring, and you’ll feel a lot better!  You said that it’s very high and gets caught on things sometimes….so there you go, perfect reason to have it reset!  Good luck!

First off, don’t feel bad. You are NOT a bad person for not liking your setting. Having it re-set isn’t a big deal at all. If the setting holds sentimental value, you can always keep it. You could put another stone in it later and use it as a RHR. Maybe while you are looking for wedding bands you could find a set and just use your current diamond

Your ring sounds exactly like mine when we first purchased it. Right down to the ridiculously high 4 prong setting. We had it changed to a 6 prong cathedral setting.

This was the original, does yours look like this?

Reset it, honey!  You gave more time to try to like it than I think a lot of us would have.  The most expensive part of the ring is the diamond anyways.  This is a wonderful time to choose something that reflects you and will make you happy!
