He picked out my ring all on his own. The proposal was a complete surprise.  He did a great job, and I love my ring!

I didn’t!  I sent pictures to my mom and my closest friends of what I liked and dropped a few hints to FI.  When he was ready to shop (I had no idea), he contacted one of my best friends for advice.  He then picked the ring out totally on his own and did an amazing job.  I completely love my ring, and I love that is was a surprise!

I told him which kind of diamond I wanted (round) and showed him some pictures of things I liked, but he picked it out without any actual input from me! And I love my ring!

He picked out the ring on his own, and it turned out it was really important to him that he felt he could pick a ring that I’d love. And it turned out he did a fantastic job! I love it, it’s perfect.

complete surprise. I’d dropped hints about prefering something nontraditional, but he went and got a beautiful cushion cut diamond solitaire.

@Moraz:  I didn’t pick mine out. I wanted it to be what he thought ‘represented’ me. It is delicate, and sparkly, and the perfect size without being ostentatious. 🙂

He picked it out mostly on his own, though he did ask my sister for opinions as he found rings he liked. He accidentally sent me a picture of the ring via text to me instead of my sister (!) so I knew what it was going to look like. It was really exciting to see it and made me more excited for the proposal. The proposal was wonderful and special and would have been that way I think whether I saw the ring or not.

We went shopping together and I made a shared document in Google Drive with pictures, but he picked out the ring itself and did a great job!  Pretty much everything I showed him I had something I didn’t like about it, but he was able to take the input I gave him about my likes and dislikes and found the PERFECT ring for me.  So it was still a surprise!

@Moraz:  I didn’t. One day he pulled up to the jewelry store and begged and pleaded for me to get out to try on rings (I found out this was AFTER he already bought mine) and I kep telling him no and that it was way too much pressure! I wanted to do it just randomly when it didn’t feel like such a huge deal, and he gave up after that.

I was SO SO suprirsed when he proposed, as well as learning he had the ring like 4 months before he even asked! (He was waiting for us to go on vacation)

I didn’t at all. I was like you, and I thought it would ruin the surprise!
