Princess Charlene celebrates her 44th birthday alone: Royal shares slideshow of snaps from happier times featuring Prince Albert, their children and her swimming career as…
WE can only imagine how nerve-wracking it must be to pop the question – first and foremost, you're going to be stressed about whether your other half will say yes.
And once you're past that hurdle, you've also got to get the ring right – both in terms of style and size.
But while most people we know would probably accept a proposal even with a Haribo ring, one woman has caused quite a stir after admitting she HATES the design her fiance chose.
Sharing her dilemma on Reddit, the bride-to-be explained how she's been with her other half for three years and had often shown him pictures of rings she likes.
She explained: "I do like slightly bigger diamonds because I have chunkier fingers & I feel like small diamonds kinda get lost on my chubby hands."
As such, the woman had told her partner that she would be happy with a bigger moissanite if he couldn't afford a sizeable diamond.

She wrote: "I just wanted moissanite in order to get a bigger rock."
When the proposal rolled around, the woman described it was "beautiful" and was absolutely thrilled – that is, until he showed her the ring.
She continued: "The ring itself was too small. It fit but it made my finger look like the Michelin man.
"It was the complete opposite of everything I showed him – I like simple minimal bands.
"This ring was vintage looking and very busy and the diamond was really small. Even the metal colour was not what i showed him."
Although the woman did her best to hide her true feelings, she said she wasn't "beaming with happiness" and felt like her fiance "didn't care" about what she wanted.
He’s still soooo mad at me saying how ungrateful and spoiled I am and hasn’t even tried to return the ring
In the first few days, the woman wondered if maybe she should lose some weight to make it fit better – but she eventually decided to come clean to her partner.
She wrote: "He got really mad. I asked him why he bought this specific ring knowing what i liked.
"He said it was the ring his mom and grandma helped him pick out – they said the ring was nice."
It was at this point that the bride found out the ring cost more than the fake diamond one she'd asked for – which is something she just can't wrap her head around.
Thinking she was doing him a favour, the woman then suggested they swap the ring for the one she wanted and he could keep the remaining money.
She added: "He’s still soooo mad at me saying how ungrateful and spoiled I am and hasn’t even tried to return the ring.
"It’s been an awkward few days. I even tried getting him to put himself in my shoes and pretend I got him a gold ring instead of his black ring but he just doesn’t get it.. (note: he HATES gold jewelry & told me he loved the way black rings looked so that’s what i got him… what he likes.)"
Turning to the forum for advice, the woman wrote: "I know it’s such a dumb situation over a ring, but it really hurts me & makes me feel like he didn’t take into consideration anything i told him about what I like.
"It’s not like i want a $10k huge diamond ring. The rings I liked are literally $1k-$2k cheaper than what he got me.
"I know it’s just a ring, but it’s a ring I’m going to have to stare at for the rest of my life and it doesn’t feel like me at all."
Needless to say, the bride's post sparked a heated debate in the comments – and the majority of people took HER side.
One replied: "[The bride] really should stop feeling so sorry about this. She should feel angry and show it to him.
"She did nothing wrong, but he bought her a ring in the WRONG SIZE and in the design that she stated that she absolutely dislikes! And then he has the audacity to get angry and offended about it?! That's how she must react!"
Another added: "He bought you a ring that didn't fit when he knew your ring size. There is absolutely no excuse for that. You don't have to lose weight to wear your engagement ring; he needs to buy a ring that he knows fits.
"It is not a good sign that he went shopping for an engagement ring, and then decided that what his mom and grandmom wanted was more important than what you wanted."
Meanwhile, a third wrote: "Definitely do not start planning any wedding until these issues have been worked through."
