I hate my engagment ring!!

I feel awful but I think its so plain and small. Yes I told him I did like "Simple" but this is just way to simple. He gave me a promise ring back in Dec because he said he couldnt "afford" one at the time, but yet he really didnt upgrade much. I like my promise ring alot more!!

I just feel like he went and picked the cheapest ring they had in the jewlery store. I should love my ring since I planned to wear it forever! :(

  • You should love that he thought to give you a ring and stop being so damn selfish.

  • If he is a good man the amount he paid for the ring should not matter.

  • I never had an engagement ring. So I guess yours is better then mine. Oh and I don't feel slighted because I know his love for me is more then some ring on my finger.

  • Be grateful you got it. YOU are the one that told him you like simple so he went simple. Simple doesn't mean cheap. Price also should never matter either. It's the thought, and the meaning behind what that wring will represent.
    Maybe when it's time to pick out wedding rings find one that will go with it but also outshine it so you only see the wedding ring.

  • Me either lost . I don't understand women who cry about these things, build a bridge and get over it.

  • Eh, I don't even wear mine most of the time. I have a ring on my heart, NOT my finger.

    Grow up and quit being so selfish.

  • years back i got one that was a very high setting
    not practical for me
    kept getting snagged on everything
    i never said a word to him
    wore it every day
    he never knew i would never have picked that one out
    he even said i could exchange- i told him that it was perfect

  • I'm with you funlovin.
    I don't have an engagement ring.
    I have been given MANY rings by men who didn't love me half as much as my husband does now.
