Opinions Please! I walked out of the jeweler with this...

Recommended Posts

It's phenomenal....truly stunning! The diamond is gorgeous, and has she mentioned that she likes sapphires, or wants them in her engagement ring before? If so, you're right on the money! If not, I agree with the other distinguished ladies of the BDW that you STILL nailed it!

 

I have to second the recommendation of the following points from the others to set your mind at ease:

 

* Check with her best friend, sister (if she has one), co-workers she's close to, or her mom to see what they think before you pop the question. Maybe you could even get another man's perspective when you ask her Dad for permission to marry his daughter, if you're going that route?

 

* Find out the specifics on the store's ring return policy -- worst case scenario, it ends up not being her dream ring, but you BOTH could go back to the store and share in selecting something more to her liking after she's already accepted your adorable proposal?!

 

Personally, I would be SHOCKED if she doesn't love it... but I can understand your concern. My fiance was so apprehensive about selecting my ring on his own that he asked me for help, and I even went to the store to try it on before I gave him the style number and told him what I'd selected within our budget! He went to the store the very next day with the confidence that I'd LOVE it when he proposed just a few months later!

 

Oh, and one more thing: Is asking her for "hints" on what she'd like out of the question? Do you have a guy friend that you could pretend to "SAY" is thinking about buying a ring, and get her opinion on what she likes that way? Maybe say someone at your job is planning to get proposed and is having a tough time finding a ring for his lady, and wants opinions? Yeah, yeah, it's a little sneaky, but often times, it works to get the info. you need without blowing your secret!

 

GOOD LUCK, BUDDY! Keep us posted!

I think it's beautiful, AND different, but not in a wierd way. lol..if that makes sense, it's completely positive. Every gal is different, but since you're asking for personal opinions-there's mine!

I think that the ring is beautiful. The different colored stones just accent it perfectly. I'm sure she will just love it. Don't second guess yourself. You must have known, in the back of you head, that she would love it.... maybe without even realizing it.

Congrats!

Im gonna play devils advocate here. You keep saying you have buyers remorse and you don't know if she will like it or not. You also said she has mentioned she doesn't like oval or pear shaped diamonds, so I guess Im wondering why you picked that ring?? Is it because you liked it or because the jeweller was pushing it? Don't get me wrong its a very pretty ring, but b/c of the two big concerns you already have (not sure she will like it, she has mentioned she doesnt like those two shaped stones) I would probably think about it a little longer.

Does your gf normally wear alot of jewellry? Or when she does, is it simple jewellry or vintage? I am sure she will love anything you give her, but I would take a step back, talk to someone who is close to her and then re-evaluate. She IS the one who will be wearing this ring forever. We can all go on and on how pretty we think the ring is, but you should be so pumped and excited to give her the ring you buy for her when you propose because you know SHE will love it. And your definitely missing that feeling right now.

I totally agree with everyone else especially islandbride317. Its a beautiful ring and she'll love it. And as soon as you tell her how much thought you put into it and why you chose it she'll love it even more. Just knowing that you cared so much would make a girl feel very special and loved indeed. We all can't wait to hear the details after you propose!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
