I’ve basically picked out my own setting, but whether or not he gets that one is another story. Chances aren’t likely he’ll stray though.

Let’s see! You have a picture?

 

Edited to add: I sort of picked out my own setting. I wanted a particular style, narrowed it down to 2, then he chose his favorite of those 2.

I picked out my original engagement ring (RB tiffany-style solitaire) AND my wedding set upgrade. That may seem extremely materialistic, but I’m really not and neither is my husband. I chose a solitaire with a nice diamond originally with the intention of setting it into something more “me,” when we had more money down the line. My husband knows nothing about rings, diamonds and the 4 Cs and all that, so he was relieved when I offered to pick it out. Mind you, he did have input. I picked several rings and we chose the one we both loved the most.

I (sort of) picked out my own setting (and center stone, actually) 🙂 we looked together online, he showed me it, I waffled, then really fell head over heels for it. Me being the bargain hunter I am (and connoisseur of finding great quality for great value), I noted the BrilliantEarth setting and found out that they get (some of? All of?) their designs from Unique Settings of New York, which Good Old Gold also sells, for less. GOG is also known for its high quality center stones so I picked out a gorgeous H&A stone and voila. They also did not charge extra for a 6-prong setting, which BrilliantEarth did.

 

Sorry for the big long story, just wanted to share my shopping experience, and my own preference for the lady getting her say in it 🙂

That’s great!  My FI picked out the first one and it was really great.  He picked out the the stone and the setting and had them put together.  My FI wasn’t happy with the gold or how the diamonds were set in there, plus we were a little worried that the stone would get traded, so we just picked another ring.  We both picked it out together and we are both very happy with it.

don’t feel materialistic! My boyfriend kinda wanted to make sure I got the ring I wanted so I would be happy. He asked around though for a good place that was right for him within budget, payments etc, and he was told by a friend that the place we went to was GREAT for military. So he called, picked out the diamond himself and then took me there and made it seem like I picked out the diamond and setting. So in the end, I chose the setting and he chose the diamond like you and your boyfriend did!
