I would just drop in that you wanted to let him know your tastes have changed in regards to your E ring, and that you want to give him fair warning. Maybe give him an inspiration pic, and decide on what level of input you’ll have from there. 

For me, I approved and made the final decision every step of the way. I’m just too picky to have it any other way! I don’t regret it for a second, because our jeweler, who is R’s sister’s Father-In-Law, tried to push some really ugly rings on him.

What I used to do was just walk slowly past a jewellry store window and look in the window and point out styles that I liked. I don’t know if that’s a technique that you could possibly use?

I was lucky and Darling Husband asked me to help him.. thank goodness.. lol!

Does the topic of marriage come up often?  If so I would just bring it up then.  Just tell him that you would love to go ring shopping sometime with him sometime so you can get an idea of what you like.  Or.. do you want to look at rings with me online.  It will be fun 🙂

If it doesn’t come up and you feel afraid you’ll pressure him by suggesting ring shopping, etc.  I would start dropping subtle hints.  Point out friends rings that you like.  Or look up celebrity rins and say something like.. oh my God honey, I saw a pic of Angelina’s ring today and I am so in love with that style.. look at this rock.  MissMoo’s suggestion of looking in store windows is great too.  Even looking at cheap jewelry at Kohls or something might help give him an idea of the style you like.

Good luck!
