Hi!

I didn’t pick out my own ring, but I get those JCpennys and Kohls ads all the time, and I’ll point out jewelry or stuff I like. What if you do the same, I know I’ve seen vintagey styles πŸ™‚

You might be surprised, I love the ring Fi picked out for me, because he chose it with me in mind.

Find a reason to but a right-hand ring, and drag him shopping with you.  Though we had pretty open communication about what kind of ring I wanted, this helped us out a lot.  I got a beautiful ring for my 25th birthday, and FI got to see what I did and didn’t like on my hands without the sales people putting any pressure on him.

You could be looking through a jewelry magazine and ask him what he likes, then say “I like this one”. 

I’m for straight-up telling him though πŸ™‚  I came home and said, “Hey, I found a nice ring today.  It’s on sale until tomorrow you should go take a look at it.”  (It worked!)

I would tell him straight!

 ie ‘I like THIS type of ring’….. If you are on the same page with your relationship he will probably thank you for it!

If you are to a point in your relationship where a proposal is a real, and near possible event, I think straight up telling him a few simple preferences is okay. I would do it in a non-confrontal “I must have a ring and it must be THIS” way, but you will be wearing it for life, you want to really love it.

My back then BF asked me whether I’d like some input on the ring, so I thought about it and compiled a few photos that I liked and sent it to him. And the ring he proposed with is truly a style that I love and still a complete surprise!

We live together and share a laptop.  When I was done with it, I would often put a screen size picture of a ring I liked on the computer. He would usually say something like, What’s this? with a smile. I’d usually just say, Oh I don’t know who put that there.  It worked, I got exactly the ring I wanted!

I told J a couple years ago what I liked. Then I opened my laptop and showed him exactly what I wanted. I also told him recently (and by ‘recently’, I mean… about two months ago): “If you can’t remember what I showed you, the photo is saved on my desktop on my laptop. You know my password.”

I sent him an email with four styles of the type of ring I want. I just said “save this email for whenever the time comes”

And then later that night I just asked him “so did you get my email”

He just smiled and said thanks
