He’s 30 and he’s acting like this? I would expect this more from a 18 year old guy that doesn’t know anything about anything. He really thought a plain gold band is what you propose with? STRANGE!

I think the way he dealt with your discussion is a problem- he’s very much like- not my problem- you deal with it. That will not work in a marriage- you have to be able to discuss and work together to fix the issue.

It sounds like he put no thought into this ring and he doesn’t care- I would really be rethinking this relationship.

Personally I would be incredibly disappointed and very insulted if my fiance told me I could buy my own ring if I didn’t like what he picked. He should care about what you want.

You’re right that the bow tie is just a pattern of reflecting. That being said, I personally don’t find it to be a good thing in a diamond when it’s prominent. Not because “some website” convinced me, but because I just don’t think two large black areas taking up a portion of a diamond looks good. A lot of people do think a prominent bowtie is a problem – which is why I advised OP to Google what it is and decide for herself before buying a stone and later realizing she doesn’t like the way it looks. I never said that all bow ties are bad but it is definitely a common “problem” for certain shaped diamonds to have prominent ones that some people find ugly, especially if the buyer does not know what to look u for when choosing a stone.
