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