Your Fiance sounds like a really sweet guy, with the Christmas proposal reason and him agreeing to re-set the ring, and just everything really! I’m so happy for you ๐Ÿ™‚

Also, I’m SO glad you told him you didn’t like the ring. It’s something you have to wear everyday for the rest of your life, you should be head over heals in love with it!! My mom HATED the e-ring my dad bought her, absolutely hated it. (I actually think it’s lovely, but thats besides the point.) And honestly, not telling him led to her resenting the ring until she couldn’t stand to wear it. Secrets and resentment aren’t a really good way to start off a marriage, In My Humble Opinion. 

Sorry for the novel comment ๐Ÿ˜› Congrats!!

Congrats on your ‘secret engagement!’ ๐Ÿ™‚ And like PP said, I’m glad you two discussed the ring and agreed to change it up. I know a few older ladies who are not happy with their rings (and if I know it, it means they dislike them enough to comment). So glad you and Fiance could have a good discussion and work through it, and now you know that something special is coming *again!*

I laughed reading your post heheheheheeee  HOW does a girl hide if she hates a piece of jewelry, especially one that has such monumental meaning.. We DON’T… At least most of us don’t lol   And bottom line, our guys want us to be happy… because if we aren’t happy, boy can we make their lives rollercoaster rides..haha  So, kudos to you for being YOU and I WANT TO SEE THIS RING…hahahahaha ๐Ÿ™‚  Have you started looking at settings yet?

Frankly, I do not hold it against you for not liking the ring. Sure, the ring is just a piece of metal and it is what it symbolizes that truly matters, but I do not see why that means you should love the style of it lol. Your guy sounds very sweet for working with you.

Congrats on your engagement! Do you have any ideas for what kind of setting you want to get?

Congrats!! I actually had similar feelings about my FI’s proposal. I was kind of expecting a big “to-do” but his was just kind of spur of the moment. He also gave me his mom’s engagement ring. The day after the proposal I fell more in love with the way he did it because now looking back I can appreciate his feelings and why he wanted to do it the way he did and I wouldn’t ask for anything more. As far as the ring. I do actually like the ring. His mom got divorced from his dad when he was very little.. so part of me feels like the ring is bad news and I’ve talked to him about getting it re-set into something else… but now even a few weeks after that conversation, I care less about all of that.

Congrats on your engagement!

Unofficial congratulations!

I felt the same way about my FI’s proposal to me. We had talked about marriage, I knew he had looked at rings, and I knew he wanted it to be a special moment. However, in the end, the very same day he got the ring he came home and proposed right then and there. He had made a more elaborate plan, but he wouldn’t have been able to set that up until the following day, and he said he didn’t want to wait any longer. That meant more to me than any big romantic proposal could have. It sounds like your guy is the same way – so wanting to make you happy that he just wanted to propose then and there.

And honestly, good for you guys for talking about the ring and how you can change it to make it more your style. I think it’s lovely that you’re using his grandmother’s ring, and wonderful that he’s understanding of your style being different from hers.

I think that’s a really cute story, it’s all about your SO trying to make you happy!  I wouldn’t feel bad about not liking the ring, it sounds like he kind of anticipated that from the beginning.  Congratulations!
