His salary is nearing a 6 figure sum and he’s usually very generous. Having seen the receipt I know he paid £1,300  for it – which is a lot less than I would have imagined he would have spent on such a significant piece of jewelry.

He’ll be more disappointed in me for making a fuss over it when, in his eyes, it fits and there’s nothing actually wrong with it rather than being disappointed that I’m not truly happy with it.
