Can you give it to your Mom or your Dad (or his parents) to hold until he’s ready?  Then he can get it from them and your suprise will be intact. 

Would that work?

Or maybe a safety deposit box at a bank? Something with both your names so he could get it out without you.

i would go with the safe deposit box route or give it to your mom for safe keeping.

I also vote for a parent holding it for him (if that’s a possibility)…if not then a safety box rental might be a good idea.

I like the idea of giving it to your parents or his!

I vote for a safety deposit box. He can’t lose it! But I also like that you have your mom or someone hold onto it in the meantime.

BTW, you should totally get it flanked with emeralds. Gorgeous! i love the sparkle versus shine of different cuts just like that! I have a cushion with baguettes so i’m obviously quite partial =]

I would give it to your parents. Keep it in the family until he needs it. I would hate to see something happen to a precious heirloom. Call it a trust issue or sentimental empathy, but I would just worry too much that something could happen to it.

Why not have him surprise you with the band you guys picked out.  Or with a fake ring from the dollar store.  That way you won’t ruin your surpise or worry that he lose it etc.

Yes, I would go ahead and give it to him so that the surprise of timing isn’t ruined.  That’s IF you want to be surprised…if you don’t really have an opinion either way, then leave it be.

If money is tight then perhaps put it in a safe in your house and make sure that he has the only key? you can get a cheap safe or lock box from wal-mart or something like that.

The safety deposit box is the best way to go.  But if money is tight, then give it to your parents.  He can call them and get the stone when he is ready.  It doesn’t matter how far away they are, when the time is right he will have to make the 6 hour trip.
