    love isnt perfect. If you are really hung up on having the "perfect" engagement ring why not wait till your 5th or 10th wedding aniversary and upgrade your set then? IMO, he gave you the ring as an engagement ring, just because it isnt labeled as one online doesnt mean its NOT an engagement ring.

    are you serious? just because it isn't listed as an engagement ring doesn't mean, IMO, that it can't be used as one. Don't ask for a new one. That's kind of rude and may not be taken well.

    100% agree. Not to sound dumb, but how would anyone else know anyway....I doubt people are going to google your ring to see if its listed as an "engagement" ring. The fact is you have a guy that loves you enough to want to spend the rest of his life with you....."engagement" ring or not, that's pretty cool.

    You got a ring...he popped the question...that makes it an engagement ring. At least that's the way I see it. Hell, DF could have popped the question with a ring pop and I would consider it as my engagement ring. Who cares what some silly online site says?

    haha i'm just thinking outloud here... but if my DB gave me a ring from a cracker box and proposed with it I'd be thrilled speachless.
    its not the ring that matters in the end, its the fact that your man got down on one knee and asked for your hand

    And this isn't meant to be rude, but just because something isn't "labeled" as an engagement ring doesn't mean anything. Remember. An engagement ring is about the promise of a wedding. It's the promise of that lifelong commitment. And if the title of the ring is a significant factor in that promise, and not the emotional aspect that comes along with it, then you may want to evaluate the values that you are basing the future on.

    I think it's horribly selfish to even give a damn that it's not categorized an "engagement ring" to this jewelers website.

    It's not about the stinkin ring, it's about the love. it's about the commitment.

    I agree with all of these ladies. It boggles my mind that you would even consider asking for another ring. That is incredibly selfish.

    Also, can you imagine how hurt he'd be? Put himself in his shoes. He picks out a nice ring that he likes for you thinking you would like it too, and asks you to marry him. There is NO good way to approach "umm...I just saw online that the ring you gave me is TECHNICALLY not labeled as an engagement ring. Can you buy me another please that's actually listed as an engagement ring?" he'd be heartbroken, I'm sure of it, and I don't even know the guy!
