Need more to the context of the story.

Has marriage been brought up? Where are you in the relationship?

If you are having an open, honest conversation about marriage and rings have been brought up, I don’t see why showing a picture would be a problem, but I’d need more information.

I don’t think it’s snobby at all to have a preference. There is nothing wrong with wanting a particular style of ring that fits who you are.

I dont think there is anything wrong with that! I have shown my SO a few different pictures of rings that I like, he told me that while he may not buy one of those particular rings it is nice to get an idea of what I like. Now that you have shown him what you like, I would probably back off and not send anymore – if you keep sending them then it could turn into unwanted pressure to your SO. 🙂

Perfectly acceptable! Guys usually prefer to have some sort of reference point in which to start. Your friend just doesn’t understand.

If it’s snobby, then I must be the queen of snobs….

I emailed my guy the ring I wanted and he got the ring I wanted. I think it was actually LESS stressful for him because I’m super picky… and this way he wouldn’t have to totally stress out on trying to figure out what I would like. Jewelry is very personal! And guys aren’t mind readers.

I think it’s very rude and snobby for her to presume what is and is not acceptable in other people’s relationships outside of her own and that she shouldn’t be so darn judgy!

My SO specifically wanted me to pick out my ring.  He said “you’re going to wear it every day,… I want you to LOVE it”

Maybe she is having issues with her BF? Does she have one? Maybe she’s jealous.

I’m trying really hard not to automatically say, “What a bitch!”

Not rude or snobby at all. Her comment, however, was!

I’ve picked out my ring because I am pretty picky and really into rings, which my SO knows, and we both agreed that it’s best I pick it out so that we are both happy. I’m going to be wearing this thing the rest of my life…. I want to love it!

I don’t think it’s rude or snobby if you have talked about marriage and are showing him styles you like!

We have looked at rings online and in person together.  SO knows that I’m very detailed and that I’m a self-proclaimed diamond fanatic.  He wants to make sure that he chooses a ring I will truly love and understands that this is important because I will be wearing it for the rest of my life!
