Engagement ring...
« on: March 18, 2014, 08:33:29 pm »
I really don't know how to start... hmm anyway here it goes...  :-\

How would you tell your partner or patay malisya na lang na you are not quite satisfy with your engagement ring...  please don't get me wrong, I happy that he propose and  I love the design he bought for me... but the thing is...medyo maliit siya...hindi siya bagay sa daliri ko... malaking babae kasi  ako, and yung ring na binili niya medyo manipis, I'm afraid na pag sinuot ko baka biglang maputol...

2nd... kahit di sabhn ni mother... she is kinda disappointed when she saw the ring...=(

May I know the carat and your ring size?

if possible post pics na rin para makita ng marami kung masyado ngang maliit sa daliri mo.

As what most of the people are saying, wala sa laki ng bato yan, but if you are more concerned sa kung gaano kakapal yung ring, pwede mo naman siguro ipa repair :)

say it nicely lang :)

I feel you here my dear. Kasi ganyan din ako, the minute I saw my ring, i got disappointed kasi hindi yun yung inexpect ko. I wanted a yellow gold band and my fiancé knows that, but what he bought me is white gold. I tried my best na gustuhin siya, pero hindi talaga ako yun eh. So I told him, then pinapalit namin yung setting ng ring.

I also wanted a bigger stone. At first naisip ko pa nga ipa upgrade na ako na lang sasagot. But then that would mean totally binago ko na yung ring na bigay ni fiancé if I changed the stone pa. So naisip ko na lang maybe after a year bibili kami as an anniv ring, besides madami pa gastos ngayon. Now nga hirap na kami mag budget sa wedding so ayoko na ipilit na palitan pa e-ring. And as a compromise naman napalitan na yung band and nasunod din yung wedding ring na gusto ko. So I’m happy :)

Talk to your fiance sis :)

Hmmm... una sa lahat,congrats! :) Pwede naman pa-resize. Wait, ano ba ang maliit? Yung stone or yung ring mismo?  ;D

Wag mo na masyado isipin disappointment ng mother mo. Hindi naman sya ang engaged at hindi sya ang nagbigay ng ring. Pag-usapan nyo ng partner nyo if anong magandang gawin sa e-ring mo para maging mas okay.

Hiindi man lang ba sya kumuha ng kakuchaba para makuha ang ring size mo? Hehe.

Size lang naman pala ang problema I think hindi naman malaking issue kung sasabihin mo kay fiance mo. You know him better than any of us so say it in a way na hindi naman sya mao-offend. Sabihin mo na din sa kanya na balak mo ipa-repair yung ring kasi worried ka na dahil sa manipis sya eh maputol. Maiinitindihan naman nya yun. Kung kaya mo idaan ng pabiro, I think mas okay yun.

Pano mo naman nasabi na na-disappoint mother mo?

Baka sis perfect cut siya kaya kahit maliit, bigatin na din. It's not just about the size naman ;)

Ang problem mo ba is yung band mismo?

Usually guys will only buy what they can comfortably afford.. you're lucky if your guy gets a heirloom stone or ring from his family, then perhaps he would be able to offer you something more than what he can afford...

How would you tell your partner or patay malisya na lang na you are not quite satisfy with your engagement ring... 

If you're not happy with the ring because diamond size is too small, I suggest not telling him. I'm sure he exerted all efforts, not to mention money, to get you that ring. Baka sumama lang loob nya. What you can do is, lambingin mo siya in the future for an anniversary ring or something. :) Or, you can buy a right hand ring for yourself :)

Pero if it's the size of the band that you're worried about, you can just tell him. Na you read this, and baka maputol, and you don't want that to happen because you know that the ring is special for both of you. I'm sure he'll understand, because you want to have it done for good reason :)

sis Pink_Sugar, parehas tayo. Ako ang pumili ng ring pero syempre kasama sya sa pagpili at sya rin nagbayad.. Surprise dapat yun since sabi ko nga sa kanya gusto ko ng mga surprises from him. Since ako humahawak ng pera nya, humingi sya sa akin ng pera at ang sabi  nya may pinapabili daw yung Dad nya so nagtanong ako kase malaking halaga ang hinihingi nya ang knowing na medyo matipid sya eh nagtaka ako.. Ayun sa bandang huli nadulas sya kase may balak daw sya bumili ng engagement ring.

Sis BabyAnnisha, it's the thought that counts kahit gaano man kaliit ang bato nyan.. kung ring size lang naman ang problema pwede pa-resize yan. Kung manipis yung ring hindi naman masisira yan kase di ba kapag gold ay matibay naman lalo na kung 14K or 18K gold yan mas matibay kase may halo na ibang mineral yan na pwede gamitin for daily wear. Kaya nga ang mga wedding rings ay usually 14 or 18K kase yan yung standard. Anyway, ako nga gusto ko 1 carat diamond pero nasa 150K na yung price for 18K ring na may 1 carat diamond VVS1 clarity and hindi na afford ni fiance yun.. sobrang happy ako na kahit .40 carat diamond lang naibigay nya ay ayos na. it's the thought that counts naman  ;)

My husBand did not buy me an engagement ring at all.. Ngayon bibili lang kami for pictorial purposes only during the wedding. Lol!

Just want to share mga sis,
The time bf and I got together as in officially bf/gf, he gave me a 3 stone ring na sobrang fit sakin. According to him, sinukat daw nya yun sa smallest finger nya and i am really surprised.
When he proposed, medyo maluwag yung ring medyo tumaba kasi sya, I was kinda disspointed pero sis try to appreciate it.
The effort of buying it, and the thoughtfulness and amount spent.
Maybe you can tell him na pa-adjust yung size, pro if its the stone, parang di sya appropriate. For me lang naman,

for me you can always buy a new bigger ring, it won't replace the engagement ring itself pero pwede mo naman ipareset yung stone or wear all the ring together just make sure na bagay. when my husband proposed, he gave me a small 3 stone ring with 4 side stones on each side then we got matching wedding band with 8 stones in channel setting. now we plan to buy a new ring at least 1 carat with nicer quality and will just stack them all up, i want the classic solitaire so hopefully we will be able to get it before our anniversary next January.

i had my ring re-made/re-designed. maliit lang un diamond and manipis un band nya. tapos came across an article pero sa US yata yun na pinagawa nya yun ring nya.  :P though you have to both agree kasi fiance might think na ayaw mo ng ring. ok naman sya sa ginawa ko. and i'm happy with my ring :)
I was in the wrong story. I left.

in my opinion: at the end of the day, the engagement ring is JUST a ring. look beyond the ring, the size of the stone or the purity of its metal. the engagement ring given by a man to the woman he intends to marry is a mere symbol of his love and commitment.

always bear in mind that a ring does not make a marriage. your fiance chose that ring for you and gave you that because he has decided to spend his entire lifetime with you and to love you forever. it might hurt your fiance's feelings if you ask him to have it replaced or altered.

^true and if ever you get a new ring to celebrate a milestone like anniversary and all it won't replace the original. i will not have mine reset but add another ring on our anniversary.
