How to Be Honest About Your Engagement Ring (If You Don’t Exactly Love It)

It’s finally come down to the moment you’ve been waiting for all your life. The love of your life is down on their knee asking you to marry them. They look incredible, the mood is unforgettable, and then it happens. They bring out a nice box that has, an engagement ring you don’t exactly see yourself wearing for the rest of your life. 

Then you start thinking to yourself, “I really don’t like it. What am I going to do?” You feel bad, maybe it’s even showing on your face. But you don’t want to hurt your fiance’s feelings. So how do you be honest and tell the love of your life you don’t like your engagement ring? Let’s talk about it.

1. Give it some time

Before you jump ship and tell your partner that you hate the engagement ring they just bought you, consider giving it some time. You never know. Just because it wasn’t love at first sight, doesn’t mean the ring won’t grow on you. You may find yourself gradually falling in love with it over time. 

This isn’t always the case, but it’s the first step in the process. So before you tell your partner, wait a few days to see if you could actually see yourself keeping the ring. After all, they put a lot of thought into it and that counts for something. Right?

2. Break the news about your engagement ring gently

If you’ve let a few days go by and you still don’t like your ring, assuming you said yes to the proposal, then you can break the news to your partner gently. There’s no need to be rude or ungrateful. Just try to be honest and caring. That’s the best approach you can take here.

A good idea is to talk to your partner over a nice dinner. Let them know that you aren’t really sure that the ring fits your personality and that maybe you’d like to consider other options. If you have an open and honest relationship breaking the news that you don’t like your engagement ring shouldn’t be that hard.

3. Go shopping together

Once you’ve come clean and told the honest truth about your engagement ring, it’ll be time to find you a new one. One you can wear happily for the rest of your life. Consider taking your partner shopping with you to find the perfect ring. This way they can get a better sense of your style and where they may have gone wrong.

This is also an option for those who haven’t even picked out an engagement ring, to begin with. Taking your partner shopping with you can save you time and stress and it can prevent you from picking out something you aren’t even sure your partner will like.
