Hubby and I looked online together and then went shopping.  We found my ring together and it was an amazing day!  One of the most romantic days ever… I even cried πŸ™‚

My FH picked out the e-ring all by himself…luckily for me, he did a PERFECT job πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I love it! so me!!!

I do think it is totally okay to help or go with you SO to pick out rings…and like @rnc said…could make a super romantic day for the two of you!

My fiance kept wanting to stop at jewelry stores to “look at watches” and he knew I wouldn’t be able to resist looking at all the other pretty things. A couple times he told me to try a couple rings on for fun and he ended up going back and getting one I liked later! I don’t think there’s anything wrong with helping him pick, he wants you to love it and be happy πŸ™‚ win win situation

Yep, I picked mine out! Oh heck yes, I have to wear it forever! FI’s not the sentimental-I-have-to-pick-it type though. He was more than happy to give me a budget and tell me to pick whatever I wanted!

I picked mine out, but we looked at rings in the summer and he proposed December 19th. I was still surprised. I love my ring. I know that he would have picked out a great ring, but he wanted me to pick it out since I would be wearing it for the rest of my life. I agree with rnc620, it was such a romantic day.

I picked out my ring! I knew what I wanted and that’s what I got. But, I am very much a 21st century woman- I did the proposing as well! πŸ™‚

I picked my own and even put the down payment on it! I got a little flack from some of my more traditional friends but I’m the one who has to wear it the rest of my life! And FH said that he would’ve gotten me something way different than the one I picked, so he is glad I picked it.

I think my favorite comment about it was FH’s brother, who said “you have to love your engagement ring simply because he picked it out”. Sentimentally? Yes, I would have loved it. Aesthetically? Not necessarily. Lol.

I picked out my ring on whim. I was at Macys of all places shopping with a friend I was always dead set on a vintage ring and found exactly what I was looking for that day! My friend told my then Boyfriend or Best Friend about it and thats what I got! I hate surprises in gerneral but I was shocked that i actually got my ring!

I told Fiance what a wanted – 6 prong solitaire. Sometimes I wonder what he would have gotten me if I hadn’t told him, but I’m pretty sure it would have been the same thing because we tend to have the same taste in jewelry – simple and elegant.

My Fiance picked mine out without any input from me at all, and I’m shocked that I love it since I’m so picky. I was amused to discover recently that my mother and father actually shopped for her ring together. She was surprised when I told her that that isn’t considered traditional.

I picked my exact setting and diamond (on blue nile) based on his budget, and he paid… worked for us!  He is not super interested in jewelry as long as I’m happy.  I think it’s more common than not nowadays that the woman has at least some input.

I picked mine out.  Fiance had gone looking a couple of times by himself.  He was about to get ripped off by the local jeweler.  They gave him a huge spill about the clarity and about the color…I know….that’s what makes it a good diamond…

BUT, let’s face it.  Most of us want SIZE!  They were about to sell him a much smaller ring than I wanted, for a ton more money than he needed to spend.  So we went together out of town, found a great deal on my rock, and it’s the perfect size.  Just over a carat solitar with 6 prongs.  PERFECT for me~
