I feel so bad. I have been engaged for almost a year (a year in September) and I am still coming to terms with my engagement ring.
I just don't know how to handle the situation.
I always dreamed of my engagement ring, a very simple antique diamond ring. Nothing flashy, just simple and delicate.
And then I finally got engaged and I was presented with a very flashy, large ruby with little diamonds surrounding it.
I know I can't tell him because he gets very defensive about the ring. I had a friend talk to him about it before he popped the question and he felt very hurt and angry that she didn't like his decision.
I do have my great aunts ring that is more my style, is there a polite way to try to switch the rings?
I feel like a terrible person but I want to be proud of showing off my ring and right now I feel like I'm wearing one of those rings you got as a child in those fake plastic play jewelry sets. Do I suck it up or do I try to make myself happy?
