Imagine the sweet and hopeful look on your partner’s face when he gets on his knees to propose. You’re expecting to be blown away by the ring, but instead, it’s not just your style. Of course, you accept the proposal, but deep down you don’t like your engagement ring.
What do you do when you know you don’t want to wear that ring for the rest of your life? It’s a real dilemma, so here are some suggestions on what you can do if you don’t like your engagement ring:
Give it some time
You may not like the ring given to you the first day you see it, but you can wear it around for some time. You just might end up liking it.
Ask a second opinion
It might just take your friends loving your ring to get you to appreciate it more. Seeing it in another light might help, so why not ask what they think before you make any hasty decisions?
Be open and honest
You can talk to your partner about the ring and why you don’t like it, it but be gentle when you do. You two can pick out another one together.
Swap it for another
Most ring vendors will swap a ring you bought from them if you don’t like it. You might just have to pay an extra fee depending on the type you choose.
Modify the ring
Rings can be remodelled if you find a good jeweller. Take the ring to a jeweller and have it remade to the style you want.
Sell it and get another
If you don’t want to remodel or exchange your ring, you can sell it. Just be sure to discuss with your partner first to avoid hurting his feelings.
With these tips, you can have a ring that you’ll cherish forever. Now that you’ve just gotten engaged, these are the first things you should do.
