    not ring but trust

    Is the following sentence correct?

    You must let him know that the most important thing is not a ring but trust between you and your boyfriend.

    Re: not ring but trust

    The problem with the sentence is one of logic. Who is the first "him"?

    A possibly more logical sentence is:

    You must let your boyfriend know that the most important thing is not a ring but trust between you and him.
