How to Care for Your Engagement Ring: 8 Do's and Don'ts November 03, 2021
What If They Don't Like the Engagement Ring?
Making the decision to get married might seem like the biggest hurdle of the engagement process. Yet the engagement ring you choose for your partner plays a big part of any proposal. This can be a pretty frightening experience, especially when you're uncertain of your partner's taste. They're supposed to wear it for the rest of their life, so getting it wrong could be a big problem.
But what if it turns out they don't like it? What do you do next? Whether you’ve already proposed or are getting ready to pop the question, this guide can help soothe some of those worries.
Your reaction to hearing or seeing that your partner doesn't like the ring might be an annoyance, disappointment, or upset. After all, you spent picking it out and thought that they would like it. But rather than reacting emotionally, try to be understanding. They might also be feeling disappointed, and they probably don't want to upset you by telling you that they don't like the ring.
However, your partner has been honest enough to tell you that it's not to their taste. Reciprocate by being understanding, saying sorry, and asking if there is anything in particular that they don't like about it.
Discuss Their Tastes
If you've made a mistake with your first choice of engagement ring, it might be that you don't and your partner wasn’t on the same page when it comes to their tastes. Getting their input and feedback will help you to understand what they like and where you might have gone wrong.
When you're discussing how to fix the problem, drill down into the details of what to do. Ask about the specifics of why the ring you chose doesn't work. Is it the overall style, the size or cut of the gemstones, the color, or something else?
When you have a problem as a couple, the best thing to do is work out a solution as a couple. If your partner doesn't like the engagement ring that you picked for them, the next step is to find one that they do like. This could mean going shopping together to find the right one or perhaps asking them to pick out a few that they like, either as inspiration or so you can pick from a shortlist.
Make Use of Your Return Policy
It's smart to check that you're getting a good return policy with an engagement ring when you buy it. You never know if the ring might not be suitable, and there could even be a chance that the answer is 'no'. Check the returns policy and be sure to return it on time and in perfect condition.
If they don't like the engagement ring, it's not the end of the world. Communicate together about the issue, and you can work out a solution.
