Doesn't Like The Engagement Ring - What Are My Options?

So, she loves you, but not the ring you chose

You finally worked up the courage to pop the question. You picked out a ring that you thought she'd love. But now that the question has been asked, she looks disappointed.

Assuming she has agreed to marry you, it's likely the letdown is the ring. While her reaction may not be everything you imagined it would be, it's better than getting a no. And if she isn't totally in love with her engagement ring, just remember that you'll get through it. This situation is the perfect way to prepare for the challenges you'll face as a married couple.

Here's what you need to know.

1. FIRST, CAN YOU RETURN IT?
Before you make any moves on a new ring, you have to look at the return or exchange policy.

In general:

  • Jared has a 30-Day Money Back Return Policy (unless it was a custom design).
  • The engagement ring needs to be in its original, pristine condition.
  • All documents should be readily available to verify the original sale.

2. PUT YOURSELF IN HER SHOES
She doesn't like her ring, but she wishes she was just as excited as you are. So, the best thing to do is apologize and move forward. Make sure she knows that you want to approach this as a team. Together, you'll find the engagement ring she's always dreamed of.

3. MAKE A PLAN
The ring you picked out wasn't what she wanted and the only way that won't happen again is to get her input throughout the process. Look at rings together to get a better idea of what she likes.

4. BE SPECIFIC
Now isn't the time to be vague. Even the smallest details of an engagement ring can change the style. Would she rather have rose gold over platinum? Did she want oval, not round? Would she have preferred a sleek, modern style over something more traditional? Whatever her preference may be, specificity is key!

5. CUT IT DOWN TO SIZE
If it all comes down to her being disappointed with the size of her diamond, now's the time to sit down and have a serious conversation about what that might mean for your finances. It may feel uncomfortable at first, but money will always play a big role in your married life, and together you'll find the best solution.

Start by talking through a few options and figure out if there are qualities she's willing to sacrifice to get a larger diamond, while keeping your budget in mind.

6. ASK FOR A DO-OVER
Creating special memories with her new ring will help both of you recover from her reaction to the first proposal. Once you've picked out and sized her new ring, ask her if you can save it for when the timing is right. Whether you give it to her over dinner at a romantic restaurant or get down on one knee at your favorite city park, you'll create new memories that'll last a lifetime.
