@cmsc831:  Wait and see til you get the ring.

If you LOVE the ring, wear it on a necklace while you’re at work.  The baby that delivered my son- I remember seeing her rings on a necklace you could see when she delivered him.

 

If in fact, you don’t love the ring- you have an advantage.  You could tell him it keeps ripping through gloves at work, so you can’t even wear it- could we please talk about bezel setting?

You can even use the gold from the original setting and having it melted down and used for your new setting!!  You’ll save money on gold AND have part of your original ring incorporated in your new setting!!

 

I have a bezel- and I love it!

Sorry it it really annoyed me to see that u told him u didn’t want a ring that snags and he goes and puts captain hooks on the sides. It’s a pretty setting but yea the jeweler can cut the hooks off.

I have a Tiffany setting (not as high as a Cathedral) and mine doesn’t snag anymore than other jewelry. But I do think those particular scrolls on the side look “sharp”, for lack of a better description and could get caught. But the heigth looks ok to me.

@cmsc831:  Im pretty sure that yes, it would, but my next thought is, who cares cuz it’s so darn AMAZING!!! Ha! Just make sure it’s made in a very durable metal and not in a softer gold karat, to minimize potential for damaging ring. Pulled hair, an occasional scratch, or snagged sweater? Totally worth it!!! 🙂

Oh gosh how pretty! ! ! ! ! !  I’d so keep it for the sentimental reasons and bc while we get all worked up over the ering, you can’t just put your FH in the jewelry box lol. As far as I can see, without replacing the ring, you have 2 options: 

 

1) I got my ring while working a summer job as a vet tech. I love that he gave me what I thought was stunning but it would/will not work with gloves. I’m a teacher 9 months out of the year and was just making some extra spending cash so then FH bought me a cheap ring (like Wal-Mart style) just to wear to work. Did it mean as much? No but you are a woman outside of work as well who deserves to have a beautiful ring. We bought the second ring cheap bc it wouldn’t be much of a loss if chemicals our equipment ruined it. 

 

2) go on etsy and check out their ring holder necklaces. I ride horses with a girl who is getting married next week and she swears by hers and she has a massive rock (tanzinite-ahhhh icey.beauty) and it cuts down significantly on wear and tear. I, on the other hand when riding, pull out my old promise ring. I wore my nice setting ONCE and it snagged the mess out of a wool pad. 

 

Just my two cents. Fwiw, we did return the cheaper ring bc I lost the job when some surgeons left and the rearranged departments (we did laser eye surgery) but my sturdy promise ring holds up to hard day’s great and was like $90 at jc penny when he was in college.

Don’t get frustrated with his impractical ring choice. Suck it up, put it on, tell him how utterly amazing it looks in real life and how it’s soooo much better than the picture, put up with the ring with claws for a year or two or however long your engagement lasts, let it get filthy, let it shred some gloves, clean it professionally when it gets filthy, get it a chain, wear it on the chain when you work, make him listen repeatedly to how worried you are the chain will break, pick out a wedding band you love, and after your wedding day, swap to wearing your wedding band daily, and the engagement right that is GORGEOUS AND YOU LOVE BEYOND ANYTHING ELSE on special occasions.

 

And try to not shred your nice dresses with it.

I think it’s really pretty! I wear gloves often and my prongs have never snagged, although I don’t have particularly delicately styled ones and the rest of my stones are channel set. Do you think there is still time to modify the design to address the curls at the end? I was thinking to make it heart-shaped like this..

(I’ll delete the picture if you don’t want this up)

@cmsc831:  Tough to say. Honestly, my ring never gets caught on things and it sits pretty high. I still take it off to put on nylons though because I’m afraid it will catch.

I think that if they just blunt the ends then it’ll be fine! Meaning, it should have a rounded end instead of a tapered end. Google images for James Meyer bezel engagement rings for more inspiration! I love his work with bezels.. http://www.jamesmeyerjewelry.com/engage_rings.htm
