We've talked about upgrading in a few years anyhow, and he is not at all hurt by the suggestion. I'm even going for a very plain/simple band-- just ordered from Ross-Simons actually.

There were a few details that were different but it looked pretty close to the one we saw. I mentioned the details and it has been down hill ever since. I now wonder if the mention was really worth it and since he had pur so much time, energy and money into (considering my proposal was something out of a fairy tale. Well this has been ongoing for a few weeks, but now...I just want my old ring back.
I totally wish that I had been on here to see your post earlier. I was going to tell you that the e-ring my FI got me was the EXACT ring style I said I would HATE to have when we were just casually going thru a store one day. I was so disappointed when I got it, not only because it wasn't what I liked, but because it meant to me that he wasn't listening to me or that what I wanted didn't matter. Fast forward to a few months later (ok, almost a year) and I realized that I should love the ring because its what he picked out and what he liked. It has meaning to him and now I couldn't imagine having anything different. When I look at it now I don't see the ring that I hated, I see the ring that he was so excited to give to me and so excited he picked out all on his own.
I'm so sorry this is causing a problem for you guys. Hopefully he understands that you weren't trying to hurt his feelings or say that what he had done wasn't good... I don't have any good advice. It stinks that he's upset and that you guys have to deal with this.
