AITA for getting my fiancee a ring on a chain?

“I(29m) wanted to propose to my gf(28f).

She’s a nurse, so she can’t wear rings at work. I wanted to give her something that she could keep with her all the time. I work as a graphic designer, so I designed a ring and a chain that I thought she would really l like.

The ring is in a style she’s worn before and likes, with a diamond, as well as opals, which are her favourite. The chain is fairly small and sturdy, and made of a stainless steel core with alternating gold and silver links over top, so it’s stronger.

The clasp for the chain is invisible, and the ring can be clipped on and off of the ring without having to take the chain off. I made it so that she could turn it and hide the clip so she could wear the chain separately from the ring as well.

I thought it was really cool, and I proposed on Sunday at the park after mothers day. There was no one else around to see it. She was initially excited when she saw it and immediately said yes.

However, when she pulled it out and saw the chain attached, she accused me of trying to prank her, and wouldn’t hear a word in edgewise.

She was yelling at me and crying, and I felt horrible. I tried to explain, and she shut me down and went back to her mother’s. Now she won’t talk to me and I don’t know what to do.


Now let’s see what folks said about this on Reddit.
