@geekychinchilla:  Resend him the same ideas.  This way if he already has one it will match and he won’t feel like he got you the wrong ring.  It he hasn’t gotten you one, or has lost the original e-mail (as my FI did) he has the ‘refresher’.

Has your taste changed since the last time you sent him suggestions? If you’re still happy with the ones you sent before then you’re probably all set, but if you want something different you may want to send some new ones. He did say ideas are welcome!

@geekychinchilla:  If you don’t think he’s bought it yet, send him pics. Goodness, I tried to be helpful to FI once and give him my preferences about a watch. I was nice and not too specific and he got me a watch I HATE! Yes, a watch is different from an ering but still – be specific! 🙂

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from my husband its this:  ask for what you want.  🙂 

Sounds like you guys are in a good place.  You can even just have an afternoon date to the mall and wander through a few jewelry stores,  Don’t let anyone pressure you, just look around.  “ooh, I love the shape of that stone, but not the sidestones…  Wow, look at the sparkle!..  Yeah… definitely loving the platinum over the yellow gold, I think it looks better on me, what do you think?..  Check out this ring, I love this detail!”

@geekychinchilla:  Oh no!  This makes me think that he has probably already picked a ring and either bought it or is paying for it 🙁  Maybe he thought he got you what you wanted and now it’s going to be a pain point if you send him all brand new rings that look NOTHING like what you sent him before 🙁

My advice:  If you really liked the rings before, resend those.  Or perhaps find rings very similar that can be tweaked without changing the setting/ring/stones too much without it being a completely different ring.

Good luck!

I see nothing wrong with you sending him some ideas. Resend a few of the ones you sent previously.

I think you should send a picture of the ring you want. Has your taste changed since the last time you sent him a pic? I sent my FI a pic of the ring I wanted and he matched it almost exactly. It’s really awesome to have my dream guy and my dream ring! 🙂
