@Mswptobe:  I think your best bet is just to start going to jewlery stores and trying some rings on that you like. That way you will know exactly what you want.  🙂

@Mswptobe:  enjoy this part.  Looking for rings is one of my favorite memories of my life.  It was fun and exciting. 🙂 Thats why I’m still lingering around on these boards, I just loved the feeling of “oh my god we are getting engaged, and i get to give ideas on big shiny beautiful rings”

Honestly, I explained to FI-then-BF sort of what I wanted a long time ago, didn’t really know he was proposing, and he did an excellent job.

He went to a small jeweler who was happy to help him find excatly what he wanted, and hey – it was perfect!

If you aren’t too sure, just give him a general idea (like a small list of guidelines, e.g. some of mine were “solitaire” and “spend a ton of money and I’ll kill you”) and trust him to pick out a ring you’ll love. The more you wear it, the more it grows on you. 🙂

How exciting! I think you should definitely try a few things on in person if you never have.  My SO asked for some ideas and my ring size recently as well.  I thought I knew what I liked but when I actually tried some on it changed my mind.  I really didn’t think I wanted a halo.  I had a couple pictures I was prepared to send him I just needed to get my ring size.  So I stopped into a local jeweler and got my finger sized and tried on a few while I was at it.  Turns out I LOVE halos and didn’t like anything that didn’t have one.  I think seeing them on your hand really helps.  Enjoy!

Definitely go try on rings! I’m still waiting for a proposal, but my bf asked me for pics of rings I liked almost a year ago so he could get an idea. A month or so ago I asked if we could go to a jeweler to look instead of just looking at pics. We were both able to get a better idea of what I liked. Plus it’s so exciting!
