    Default Stressed out...need some advice!

    When DH and I got married we chose a Tungsten band for him. It looked nice and was inexpensive. But now (over 3 years later) it def does not look as nice and he has expressed interest in getting a new Platinum wedding band (in which we will have blessed so it has the same "meaning" as the original one). We havent really talked about it lately but I have an idea of what he wants (7mm brushed/satin center with a polished edge) and was planning to get him one for his 30th birthday and giving it to him in Aruba when we go next month.

    Here is why I'm stressed....the ring I want needs to be special ordered bc it only comes in a 4mm. Ok fine. Except its non-refundable! Since this is a surprise I have no idea if I will need to return it for whatever reason. I was really looking forward to giving it to him as a surprise for his 30th while we were away and now I feel like I need to tell him so he can have some input.

    I have gone everywhere to look for a ring for him and I found the best deal on Bluenile.

    Should I spill the beans? Should I just get it and hope he wants to keep it? Should I pay more $$ for the same rting somewhere else that has a return policy? I just dont know what to do!! Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I got DH's from eweddingbands years ago and they have a good return policy.

    Thank you HK! They have way more selection than Bluenile! Bluenile has a very good return policy also but only if its from what they have on their website. Any special orders cannot be returned. Thats awesome it can be shipped in 2 days! I feel better already I was really upset that I might have to blow the surprise.

    Jess -
    Be sure and watch your credit card statement/bank account, as it might give the surprise away! Jason is like Big Brother with ours so I can never surprise him with gifts from specific stores like that!

    Thanks Amber! Luckily I do all the bills and I have my "own" credit card so I will be putting it on that until I give it to him
