I would give it to him.  It’s better that he knows your tastes instead of choosing something that you might not like.

He already told you he was okay with it, so I totally would give him the list/specs. I know I would totally do it. When I got my ring, we were just looking, but both saw the one I have and both fell in love with it at the same time. It is better that you give him the list/specs, so that he knows what you like, so you don’t get surprised with something that is totally not you.

Do it! I told mine that I found one I liked, took him to the store to see it on me, and then he bought it 🙂  So worth it to know you will love your ring!

I worked up to giving my BF the specs of my favorite ring.  I told him that I had found one that I liked a lot and that my sister knew the details.  When he didn’t bite, several months later, I got the info from my sis and gave it to my BF.  A few months ago, he saw me looking at other rings online and said “that’s not the one you like.” When I said I was open to other rings but did love the one I had shown him, he indicated that I had better still like the original one, or he was “in trouble”.  That is one of a few reasons why I believe a proposal is coming soon.

So, I say definitely give him the info on the ring you like but do it in your own way!  If I could do it again, I think I would take him ring shopping so he could see a few rings and see why I liked certain rings over others.  With that, he could have more rings to choose from but I would still get one I like.  Good luck!!!

Just give it to him. I told my DH exactly which ring I wanted and it’s all good. He saved all the time and stress he would have spent fretting over which ring to get me, and I got the exact ring I wanted. Wins all around!

He wanted you to get ideas for him, so give them to him. I think he (like many guys) want to make sure you will love the ring he picks for you. By giving him the cards, it gives him guidance of what you like and what styles you prefer. He may not get one of the exact rings you pick, but it will reassure him that he is choosing the perfect one for you. Go ahead and give it to him.

I would definitely give him the cards! My FI took me with him to pick things out because he wanted to make sure that the ring I would wear for the rest of my life was the right one! I am sure your FI would want you to be happy with such an important piece of jewelry! At the very least, he can use it as inspiration if he wants to do some sneaky shopping of his own!

haha, I talked about ring specifics (types of diamond, halos, metal type…etc) so much that I think I scared my SO a little bit. At one point he said “You should probably make me a powerpoint with all the info I should know on it.” Luckily we are on the same page about getting engaged after we graduate, so the ring talk isn’t all that scary and he likes that I have opinions about it.
