My fiance has all the paperwork, I refuse to snoop in his house. And right up until the ring fell apart on my finger he very much loved the ring and was pretty touchy to any negative commentary from me. And we all know I tried to hint that it wasn't good for an engagement ring, he just wasn't hearing it. Should I have thrown it back in his face while he was still on one knee? He's stubborn, I know it, I was trying to be delicate to him about a very sensitive issue. Only TODAY did he finally tell me cost when I pushed it, he got very bristly when I asked further. (And I was horrified to find out that he spent that much money. Like I posted previously, I had marked a SET for him to see that was under $2000- so those insinuating that I only now value it for money, you're dead wrong, just note how I mentioned sentimental value prior to todays posts for proof) Littman refuses to tell me anything when I ask because only his name is on the paperwork. Shall I go grind the knife deeper into his ego right now and ask for the papers? I'm trying to be respectful to his feelings. A lot of you seem to think that every comment here I'm saying to him, when I'm keeping most of my thoughts vented on here only. And yes, I'm venting anonymously on here because to full out on him would be cruel. He proudly bought me an engagement ring that he erroneously thought was the best ring and I would love it deeply. It took him four weeks to realize its completely innapropriate for daily wear. Don't think he wasn't upset when it broke already too. I'm doing my best to keep his emotional damage minimal. (And after the first week venting here and mentioning practicalities to him, until it broke, I kept my mouth shut about this ring, both here and in real life). To the supportive posters with good wishes and helpful information and opinions, I thank you. As for the others.... THIS IS ABOUT THE JEWELERY,NOT MY RELATIONSHIP! I'd appreciate all posters keep this topic to the jewlery and not mention marriage counseling or any other crap like that. I find it offensive and insulting and find those making such comments no better than the jerks that called my ring cheap right to my face. No one is running for the hills. I didn't even fling the ring back in his face when he was still on one knee, AS SOME WOMEN APPARENTLY HAVE as mentioned in other prior posts. In fact, I may forgo an engagement ring entirely since it's just not worth hurting his feelings further. I love him, and I will marry him with or without a ring. I'm just sad and upset right now because something so special as our ring is kind of crappy.
