AN ENGAGED woman revealed she hated her engagement ring but was transparent enough to tell her fiancé how she felt at the time.
Not only did the engagement ring not suit her style, she also felt like it was a huge waste of money.
Brittany (@beefinnagain) shared the story in a video with her TikTok followers.
She explained that everyone in her life knew she wanted a halo-style ring but didn’t get it when she proposed.
When she shared the news with her family, she cried as she told the story and her parents gave her advice.
“Brittany, it’s okay, maybe you can get an upgrade for your five year anniversary,” her mother said.
Her father also advised her not to talk about her disappointment, and Brittany initially followed the advice.
However, when she returned to school, she felt overwhelmed by all the people asking about the ring, which she hated.
“After a week of people coming up to me, congratulating me and asking to see the ring, I was just over it and knew my mom was right when she said I should wait and not ask for the ring to replace,” she said.
Responding to her needs, she called her fiancé Patrick: “This doesn’t need to be addressed right now, but I want to be really transparent, I really don’t like the ring,” she told him.
Luckily, her fiancé took the news well: “We can just return it, we can go shopping and get what you want,” he replied.
In another VideoPatrick shared his take on the situation: “I was just a little shocked, but the idea of not exchanging the ring until our fifth anniversary was even more ridiculous,” he said.
“I wanted to replace it to ring for you because that was really important to you.”
Brittany simply had to go without a ring for two months, but ended up getting the halo ring of her dreams.
People took to the comments to share their thoughts on the story.
Although many disagreed with her choice of ring, they were still happy with the result.
“I honestly would have cried if I got a halo, but everyone deserves the ring they love,” one commenter said.
“Personally I like his ring much better but as long as you’re happy,” another agreed.
Many were happy that she was able to communicate their needs: “You made a good choice,” said one viewer.
“YOUR RING on YOUR hand. That doesn’t mean being ungrateful. I would do the same thing if my boyfriend got a ring that I didn’t like. Communication is key.”
