A woman has spoken candidly about the time she had her now-husband change her wedding ring because she hated it so much.
TikTok user Bee Finnegain first mentioned the ring fiasco - briefly - in a video posted to the platform on March 10.
She said simply: "I told my husband I hated my wedding ring."
Concluding the video, Bee asked: "Does anybody want to hear about that?"
In a follow-up video, Bee expressed surprise at the amount of interest shown in her wedding ring story time from the previous video. So she decided to share the tale...
Bee pointed out to her followers that she had been very insistent in the two years she had dated Patrick that she wanted a "ring with a halo".
"I just kept emphasising like, 'I don't care about the size of the diamond, I don't care the cut, clarity, whatever - I literally don't care," she said. "I just want a halo around the inside diamond, right?"
Bee says around the time Patrick proposed, he failed to ask her friends and family what kind of rings she likes.
"He proposed and it literally was a princess cut diamond with no halo," she recalled. "And it was a beautiful diamond, but it was just not what I wanted."
After the proposal, her mom asked if she liked her ring, which prompted Bee to break down in tears and say: "No, I hate it so much, and I have to wear it forever."
Her mom then suggested that she ask for a new ring on their five-year wedding anniversary, but, according to Bee, "It lasted a week".
"When you're engaged everyone's like, 'Is it the diamond you wanted? Is it perfect? Do you love the ring? Is it everything you imagined?'" she said. "And every time I had to be like, 'Yeah, oh my gosh, yeah.' And then I would literally go and cry because it was just not what I wanted."
"So after like a week I called him and I was like, 'Hey, this is going to be a hard pill to swallow but I hate the ring. It's just not what I wanted, and I'm willing to wait for something that I do want but can we... I just need you to know that, and can we try to fix this?'"
So, Patrick took Bee out to the jewellers and allowed her to choose the ring she wanted.
"He was able to get a refund and swap it out and it was fine and then I made him pay double on the ring, because he took me to the store and I told him what I liked," she explained.
