engagement ring issue...too big (really)
Posted: Jan 26, 2005 12:24 PM

my boyfriend (er, husband-to-be i guess) and are picking out engagement rings...

were lucky enough that his grandmother left him a selection of beautiful jewelry...among the pieces are some rings and stones that can be set into rings.

anyhow, the piece she intended for him to use as a future engagement ring is, while gougeous, is large and flashy (3 karats)...i would just feel weird and awkward wearing it everyday..

so, that was my gut reaction, and i decided to pick another ring. (the big stone can also be set as a necklace...which i feel is a more appropriate use for it. its not like it totally goes to waste)

anyhow, my boyfriend was fine with my decision.

but, i told my friends about this and they thought i was nuts.

they said it would not be distateful to wear such a large piece of jewlery everyday.

am i nuts?

i cant help my gut reaction. but, now im second guessing myself.


and also, if i change my mind, would it be rude now to tell him i want the other ring?
