HE wants to choose the Ring.

I think if you give him the specs and general preferences, he still has a LOT of room for customization while being mindful of what you want. I’m a firm believer that just because the guy you love picks a ring, it does NOT mean he has a single clue about diamonds. To me it’s like if I bought a guy a car but the only thing I knew about it was that it was shiny. What, you don’t like it? It doesn’t work? Oh, well it’s shiny and I picked it, so you have to use it. LOVE YOU! no. You’ll probably like what he picks, probably. He might surprise you with something you totally never expected to like either. But the problem is that he thinks he knows better than you, that he won’t consider your feelings. Why doesn’t he love that you took the pressure off him by doing all of the research, and that you have a preference for smaller diamonds? He has the entire rest of your marriage to buy you right hand rings of his choice, or maybe he can pick or help pick your wedding band after you have your engagement ring, but I think it’s gonna be a way harder hit to his ego if he picks a ring you hate than to just take a couple hints beforehand. Maybe you two could go ring shopping together, and then he just holds onto the ring until it’s time.

Whoops! Looks like this is a double post. I’m going to close this thread and send everyone here to comment:
