      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 am a HUGE fan of Simon G and I think the ring is beautiful. My rings are Simon G as well and I think she will absolutely love it!

              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!
