Your partner has finally proposed you accepted wholeheartedly except for one thing...the ring looks hideous. It doesn't mean you want a big rock on your finger, just that you have a certain dislike for it and can't imagine wearing this the rest of your life.

So how do you tell your fiancé about the ring bearing in mind that the matter is sensitive and he might get offended?

Women's Daily Magazine compiles a list of ways to approach this sensitive issue:

  1. Do Not Panic: Taste is individual so don’t think that your man doesn’t know you if he picked a ring you don’t like. Maybe he liked it and he thought it’s the perfect ring. This is not a bad sign for your future marriage- don’t panic!

  2. Take a Few Days: Wear the ring on your hand for a week or two, maybe it will grow on you. Enjoy being engaged rather than fighting over the ring! Deal with the ring issue later!

  3. Ask Him What Made Him Choose That Ring: Why not ask him what made him choose that particular ring for you? Maybe there’s a cute and romantic story behind it and you’ll start seeing the ring in a different light.

  4. Decide What You Don’t Like About The Ring: So you wore the ring for a couple of weeks and it didn’t grow on you! Decide exactly what you don’t like about the ring so you can gently explain it to your fiancé instead of saying “I hate it”. You can make some changes in the jewelry shop and make the ring more your style. If you think the ring is not expensive enough, just keep your mouth shut.

  5. Tell Your Fiancé: You need to calmly approach your fiancé about this issue. Truth is, picking a ring was emotional for him too and he really thinks that he got the best ring for you. Don’t insult the ring and talk everything in a nice manner.

  6. Plan Ahead Before He Pops The Question: To avoid all these things and end up with a ring that you really love, start mentioning things you like. You can even start leaving him pictures around.
