In her words: " It's like purchasing an orphaned dog, why would I want an orphaned dog? She said I wanted to spend the money the way I wanted to, not have you get me some gift I don't want. I already have a dozen rings, why do I want another?

Really? between her and her daughter with their shopping trips, Debutante parties and oh let's not forget whatever is on the Shopping channel - Diamonds, Gold Rings, etc. On a scale of 1 -10 as to when I see the ring and what I want - a strong 2... need I go on?

Anyhow, the tag is still on it and ready for pick up...the worst Christmas of my entire life.

Are you the same guy whose fiancée wants to return the 48" TV? Because its the worst Christmas of his life, too...

And are you sure you bought a 24 karat ring? That is a ridiculous amount of diamonds for one ring, unless that woman's finger is the size of my wrist.

Doesn't sound very appreciative. Maybe next holiday ask her what she wants before you buy her gift, or get her a gift certificate or something. I agree though, sounds like put thought into the gift and she shot you down. I don't know what the rest of your relationship is like but doesn't sound much like a partner.

Sometimes women just don't appreciate the thought, they want what they want and could care less about your feelings. I suggest you drop this women and her shopaholic daughter and move on to greener pastures. Seriously, if a 24k diamond ring isn't enough nothing will ever be enough for her. Find someone who appreciates you for you, not your bank account.

24 K used in jewelery is really soft and does not stand the wear and tear of daily use. Know that because my wedding ring is 24K and I F'd it up so bad grabbing the hand rail on buses going to work daily that it plain flatten out on me.

Girls hate that many studs, need to go for the single rock no matter what size you can afford now and add the 12 diamond studded wedding band at a later date.

Maybe a Washer and Dryer the next time.................J/K

I so agree! Doesn't sound like a good catch you've got there. If she is not even on her best behavior now before the nuptials (like majority of people are bc they want to impress and not disappoint), I would hate to see what a future with this woman would hold for you. Better one really bad Christmas than a whole future of them! Run, man, run!!

Maybe the husband doesn't really know or maybe even cares what his wife likes so he just bought something expensive and said... here, it cost alot, I did my part, whatever.

72 years ago my fiance came to the door offering me a ring with one small diamond. I told him I didn't like diamonds and wanted a star sapphire. He sad his dad told him only diamonds were proper for an engagement ring. In a few days he was back with a lovely star sapphire set with two tiny diamond chips on either side. Our marriage lasted 69 years, "'til death etc." Second try might work for you.

I'd worry about the 24K gold not being able to hold on to the prongs, and losing a diamond. Who wants a ring that makes you worry?

I don't understand many women's obsession with diamonds. I have been married twice now and diamonds are no guarantee for a lasting marriage. Neither is a wedding band.

I'd refuse that ring too. 24 K gold is rarely used in a piece of jewelry that is expected to be worn a lot and last a long time This is especially the case when one is buying gold jewelry that might be used for a lifetime, like in a wedding ring or engagement ring. In general 24 karat gold is simply too soft to use, and would be prone to bending, scarring or even breaking. A much better investment would be to choose a 14 K or 18 K gold ring with at least a 1 carat solitaire high quality diamond.

BTW, my husband and I gave each other matching heavy 14 K gold bands etched with a unique design. They still look great after 42 years of daily wear! For our 40th anniversary, he had an exquisite, round, brilliant "hearts and arrows" cut 1.5 carat diamond mounted, on my ring, in a Tiffany setting.
