Some times, no matter how well the proposal was planned, a relationship just isn’t going to end in marriage. For those occasions when she says no, there are some difficult feelings to process. However, one thing you don’t want to do is be stuck with an unwanted engagement ring. When the unthinkable happens, a good return policy makes a huge different. While the sting of “no” may linger, at least you can get your money back.
Reasons For Turning Down A Proposal
Surprisingly, proposals are turned rather often. However, the reasons vary widely. According to various surveys, women turn down a proposal due to fear of commitment in the relationship over 30% of the time. In these cases, there are definitely bigger problems than the proposal itself, and there will most likely not be a second attempt. Another reason turn down a proposal is poor execution, either of the words or the actions. This is one of the reasons you don’t want to propose by putting the ring in her dessert or at half time of a basketball game. On the other hand, nearly 50% of proposals are turned down due to a poor choice in the ring. In this case, perhaps it’s time to give your jeweler a call to see if you can do better next time.
Call Your Jeweler Immediately
If she says no, your first call will probably be to your closet friend or family. And if there is not going to be a second try, you’re probably stuck thinking about where you went wrong. However, after sharing the bad news, one of your first calls should be to your jeweler. Even if she doesn’t want the engagement ring, you may still be eligible for a refund. Most premier jewelers will accept a return on an unworn item for 30 days. This date is typically from the date the product arrived, and not from the date the purchase was made.
