Just not into finding a ring

I was like that too. Obviously I wanted a ring but that’s about where it ended. I wanted him to pick it and I wanted him to love it more than anything. We talked and he gave me three different size/price points (clarity and colour were non-negotiables with him, he already had those picked out) so I picked which size I wanted and went from there. I’m just not one of those girls who dreamt of their engagement ring and I have always seen it as something the man should pick.

@searock:  I LOVE that DH picked my ring with no help! He did an AMAZING job!

My ring story is a little different because I thought I was going to inherit a ring, and we found out that I wasn’t shortly before he wanted to propose with it.

So we did go ring shopping last minute just so I could get ideas. In the end, he went by himself (well with his mom) and picked out something similar to what I liked in the store. 

My best friend didn’t pick it out. I think she told him what kind of metal she liked and what shape diamond.

I enjoyed picking all our rings together, but there’s obviously no one size fits all scenario that works for everyone.  If you really want it to be a surprise, I think he should do his best to surprise you.

@searock:  oh hey! that’s basically my ring! mine just doesn’t have the sidestones in a bezel setting. It’s a purple sapphire, and I adore it!

@searock:  Sapphires come in purple too :). They also hold up better than amethysts over a lifetime.

@searock:  i didn’t go ring shopping and didn’t miss the experience.  i did look at a few pictures online and gave my FI an idea of what i liked.  he designed the ring himself and surprised me with it.

I wanted to be surprised so much – however, my BF didn’t feel comfortable making a “forever” decision like that on his own. He did want the entire engagement process to be a surprise though, so I went shopping with a friend (per his request) and after trying on lots of different styles, I emailed him the ones I liked best. We have a family stone we are using. We actually don’t even know who it belonged to, so there isn’t a lot of sentimental value there; therefore, we are going to have it reset. I can’t wait to see what he picks out!

@searock:  I’m the complete opposite lol; I’m one of those people who makes gift lists, so you’d hate me! I’m just very fussy and particular about certain things.

I do however think it’s great to be so easy-going, and sometimes wish I was.
