This is a hypothetical on my part but a real question for one of my sisters
Her DP finally proposed, but without a ring. It's still a 'secret' as they dont want to announce until the ring comes (but she told me in confidence). He's designed one with a jeweller friend of his family. He described it and it's exactly what she would not like. He's a surfer 'dude' and it sounds just like one of those surfer dude rings!! Platinum but gun metal grey with surfer dude kind of engraving on it. It sounds like a ring he would wear
. It's costing $3K so I imagine without stones it must be quite...chunky!
My sis is sweet, and delicate, and girly! And HATEs to hurt peoples feelings. And she loves shiny, sparkly things!! She thinks she neesd to just 'suck it up' and love it bc he gave it to her. But she is worried that the ring will be so 'surfer dude' ugly!!
She asked me to post a WWYD in this circumstance. Me I'd just say 'darling whatever you give me I would treasure but I really think a smaller more sparkly ring would suit me better...'. But this isn't me! She's not as...forthright as me!
ETA - he described it to HER - not me - I am not supposed to know....
