Hello Bees! I need some advice and reassurance.
So my Fiance and I have been looking at rings for the past few weeks and we chose one that we both fell completely in love with. It comes from Tiffanys and its more than I ever could have dreamed of. We loved that Tiffanys offers a lifetime warranty, cleanings, full service, etc….
He also had originally thought of having a ring made for me by a wholesale jeweller that was recommended by a friend. So he took in the exact specs of the ring from Tiffanys to see if he could have it made. The wholesaler said he could recreate it no problem at a fraction of the cost. We would be saving $3000! However, he wasnt able to show us any of his work so we really felt like we would be going in blind. With the Tiffanys ring we knew exactly what we would be getting and with all that extra service we knew we would never have to worry…..but was it worth that extra huge expense??
He asked my opinion and I told him that I thought that saving that amount of money would be a huge deal. But I was worried if it wouldnt turn out the way we wanted it to. But i told him there was no way I could be disappointed, he could have put a twist tie on my finger and I would have been thrilled.
The custom jeweller said it would take 3-4 weeks to make, whereas the Tiffany ring could be ours right away. He said that he was going to make the final decision yesterday. Last night I asked him if he had made his decision and he said yes, but he wouldnt tell me. That makes me feel that he chose to go with Tiffany, because if I had to wait a month, im pretty sure he would let me know!
Now im feeling super guilty. I feel so bad that he might be spending that extra money when it isnt necessary. Its not exactly like we’re rolling in it! I feel like I should have persuaded him more to go with the wholesaler. But i feel like its too late to say anything because he might have already picked up the ring at Tiffanys. Am I right to be feeling so guilty?? I hate anyone spending money on me, so maybe thats it….
