That story sucks, and definitly FYL, but dude, 16 grand on an engagement ring, seriously? Get your priorities straigt, could have bought a lot of stuff to make a really nice home (incl. a down payment for said home) for that money...

Exactly this.

I couldn’t fathom wasting 16 grand on a piece of jewelry. Especially when you can still get beautiful rings for a fraction of that price.

I was thinking the same. My engagement ring (which I picked), was €25 (about $30). It's just a piece of jewellery, I really don't care.
16K is more than what our wedding and honeymoon combined costs, and the wedding was held in a private Georgian estate and we went to Thailand for the honeymoon.
I'm thinking that if OP thought he needed to spend that much money to impress his girlfriend, the relationship can't have been great to start with.

Well a ring for €25 can easily break or tarnish, others might want something sustainable for like 50 years or so for their whole marriage, doesn’t have to be near 16k of course

What if OP already has all that? Or what if those things aren’t their priorities because of their job? Everyone has different priorities and shouldn’t be shamed for doing what they feel is right.

Nobody is shaming anyone. If OP already had that why would it be such a big deal that he saved the money for more than a decade? Also, if you don't want other peoples opinions, why would you post on a (at least sort of) social media website?

I’m so sorry to hear this, I couldn’t even imagine how crushing it would be. It will take a long time but you will heal and move on, you will get the love you deserve in one form or another, don’t give up!

On the bright side you dodged a bullet. Return the ring, get your money back, do something nice for yourself and find a woman who's worthy of you.

I’d have felt a lot sorrier for you if you were offering her, say, a $1000 to $2000 ring.

$16k is just way too much for a ring, it’s grotesque! You ought to slip that other dude a hundo, since he saved you from a huge financial mistake. Oh, yeah, and marrying a whore.

I know you will have trouble believing me, but time will help a lot. The hurt will never go away completely, any relationship over six years is so very much a part of your life and your identity. This is a death, and you need to mourn it like a death. The 16K for the ring doesn't matter, you'd burn that money in a minute to have her back, faithful to you, your relationship intact, I fully understand that. But the other posters are correct, you have dodged an unimaginable bullet, avoided this heartbreak at an even worse time (the hurt would be the same!). Resolve to let yourself find peace, at your own pace: don't go crazy acting out because you've been hurt. I promise it will get better, you will live and love again, just not right now. Try not to make any huge decisions (where to live, jobs to take, spending money) during the mourning period.
