Morgan & Co's Unique Offer

Before we get into the question of "what do I do if I hate the engagement ring my partner gave me", let's first explore our unique offer to help address and avoid this concern. At Morgan & Co, Sunshine Coast's number one jewellery, we have a special offer for every man purchasing a surprise ring for his partner — we will reset the ring at no cost if your partner is unhappy with her ring, or if the wrong metal or gold colour is chosen. I know, how amazing is that??

As an engagement ring designer at Morgan & Co, I understand the emotional significance of an engagement ring and the distress that can come with not loving the ring you'll wear forever. If you find yourself in this situation, it's essential to address it delicately and thoughtfully. Here are some steps to take if you hate your engagement ring that your fiancé chose without your guidance —

Assess Your Feelings

Take some time to understand why you dislike the ring. Is it the style, the stone, or perhaps the sentiment behind it? Knowing the root of your feelings can help you decide how to proceed.

Communicate with Your Partner

Approach the conversation with empathy and honesty. Let them know how you feel and reassure them that your feelings are about the ring, not the commitment. I know it's an awkward conversation to have because the last thing you want to do is hurt your fiancé's feelings, but sometime important conversations are difficult and no one wants to wear a ring every. single. day that you dislike, so it's a conversation that needs to be had!

Explore Your Options

Depending on the reason for your dislike, there are several options available. You could consider resetting the stone, changing the setting, or even designing a new ring together.

Consult a Professional Jeweller

Visit a reputable jeweller — reach out to the bespoke team at Morgan & Co and who can offer expert advice on your options. We can help you explore ways to modify the ring to better suit your taste and we can do it in a sensitive way that also considers your budget. Contact our Sunshine Coast based jewellers here.

Consider the Sentimental Value

Remember that the ring represents the love and commitment of your partner. If possible, try to find a solution that honours both your feelings and the sentiment behind the ring.

Focus on the Positive

While it's okay to not love your ring, try to focus on the positive aspects of your relationship and the commitment you've made to each other.

At Morgan & Co, we understand that every engagement ring tells a unique story, and we're here to help you find a solution that feels right for you. Whether it's modifying your current ring or designing a new one, we're committed to ensuring that your ring reflects your style and symbolises your love and commitment.

What do I do if My Partner Chooses the Wrong Gold Colour For My Engagement Ring?

If your partner has chosen the wrong gold colour for your engagement ring, it's natural to feel a bit disappointed, but there are several ways to address this situation without causing any stress or hurt feelings. Here are some steps you can take —

Express Your Feelings

First and foremost, communicate openly and honestly with your partner about your feelings. Let them know that while you appreciate the sentiment behind the ring, the gold colour isn't what you had in mind. 

Understand Their Perspective

Try to understand why your partner chose the gold colour they did. Perhaps they thought it would complement your skin tone or match other jewellery you own. Understanding their perspective can help you both find a solution.

Consider Your Options

Depending on the type of metal used, there may be options for changing the gold colour of the ring. For example, if the ring is made of yellow gold, it can be re-plated, or rhodium plated, with white gold. If it's made of a different metal, such as platinum or titanium, you may need to explore other options, such as re-setting the diamonds or coloured stones in a new setting. 

Consult a Jeweller

Visit us at Morgan & Co, even if the ring isn't from us — we offer in studio consultations as well as virtual consultations. We can assess the ring and provide options for changing the gold colour. We will discuss options for your dilemma and we will ensure we provide the best price possible as we know your partner has just spent decent money on a ring so it wouldn't be fair to have to invest a lot more into fixing an issue. Contact our team here.

Explore Other Solutions

If changing the gold colour isn't an option, consider other ways to incorporate the colour you prefer. For example, you could wear the ring on a different finger or hand and pair it with other jewellery in your preferred gold colour.

In conclusion, if your partner has chosen the wrong gold colour for your engagement ring, it's important to communicate openly and work together to find a solution that feels right for both of you. By approaching the situation with understanding and empathy, you can ensure that the ring continues to symbolise your love and commitment to each other.

Reach out to our bespoke team at Morgan & Co for your complimentary, no-obligation consultation. Our team of skilled designers will ensure you make no mistakes, and we guarantee your partner will adore her ring. We're so confident that we'll even remake it free of charge if she isn't satisfied!
