I would suggest that you email them and say something like… Hi sweetie, I was so overwhelmed last night by our lovely conversation. I wanted to send you some visual examples of what I like as well, so you have more than just the verbal list.

And then leave it. 🙂 He did ask, and you were caught off guard, so admit that and just let him know that you aren’t trying to be pushy, but you had a few examples. 

Men tend to be visual creatures, so it can’t hurt.

@HoneyBee827:  I second pp’s worded the right way it won’t sound pushy at all

@HoneyBee827:  I think a flirtatious, “do you mind if I email you some links to rings I like so you can get an idea?” is perfectly permissible, as is emailing said pictures/links. 🙂

Be warned, though– I did this back in February and I believe my SO has JUST contacted one of the jewelers, 2 or 3 weeks ago. So it can take 7 months for anything to really happen! But personally, having emailed him examples of things I like gives me WAY more peace of mind about his ring choice that I would oterhwise have. I am very picky about jewelry style, and he knows that, so I think it was the right thing to do.

@HoneyBee827:  I did the same thing too… I’m glad he was receptive. 

I’m now at a point where I have almost zero knowledge of ring specs because I gave my SO a pic early on with a comment saying “I love the way SQUARE rings look :)”

Keep us updated!
