Most women like the ring they are given by their partner; however a few are not happy with their fiancé's offerings in the jewellery department.

Here are top tips on how to navigate around this awkward moment:

  • Talk: Avoid being honest during the proposal, however after the event, talk to your partner as this is something you have to have on show for the rest of your life. Make a mental list of everything you don’t like about the ring and wear it for a while before making your final decision- it might grow on you.
  • Bespoke jeweller: Make an appointment with a professional and ask what you can do to make the ring more to your liking. You can keep the most expensive part of the ring- the diamond- and work with the metal around it so it suits your own unique style. This is the cheapest way to alter your ring to one that you will like forever.
  • Upgrade: You can't take away things from the ring but you can add things, such as more stones to the shoulders to have a halo design. Chat to the experts and ask them their thoughts and what is actually possible. It doesn’t cost as much as you would think to make your ring one of a kind.
  • Diamond:Your man can always propose with just a diamond, and that way you can go with your partner and pick out the ring that is perfect for you to surround your impressive rock!
