I want to say that you sound like a wonderful person! I think its very sweet that your fiance is ok with you keeping the jewelry from your late husband. Instead of a new engagement ring have you considered getting a band with diamonds or gems on it that you love? You could purchase it now and use it for the wedding band but also have something beautiful and sparkly to show off at Christmas. I hate snarky comments about jewelry, they are so rude. Hopefully you won’t hear any more of them, and congratulations!

Even though your fiancé is being nice and accommodating, I can imagine it wofor odd for him to have HIS future wife wearing diamonds that represent a previous relationship or that you purchased for yourself.

Your Fiance sounds like such an understanding and wonderful man-congrats to you both on your engagement!

I totally understand how you feel-it’s understandable that with the holidays coming you’d want the ring, especially since I’m sure you’ll be visiting people, etc and they will ask about the ring. As PP mentioned a gemstone ring could be beautiful, or what about a diamond band? Those are usually less expensive, and you could even wear it with your three-stone ring….

@MerryWidow: I didn’t get engaged with a diamond… my ring took far to long to get made for my Fiance to wait. He proposed with a sterling silver ring. I got the same reaction “Where’s the ring?” and I truly didn’t care because all I need is my Fiance. I didn’t even need what I got! Diamonds weren’t important… but my Fiance wanted people to see a ring that wasn’t under his standards I guess is how to put it.

I was just like you and than I was so upset when people asked to see it… I think it’s a girl thing. We really don’t care but we kinds like showing it off for a minute. By the time my ring got here no one noticed and I thought it would be rude to say something… BUT I got over it by that point. It’s ok and I know how you feel… kinda sucky :/

How you decide to celebrate your commitment is your decision, no one else’s. I think it sounds like you have an amazing and understanding man who is comfortable in himself and his relationship with you and therefore doesn’t need to feel threatened by a ghost. Focus on that and then people’s comments won’t matter so much. 🙂
