I have a confession to make.
Ok that’s dramatic because this hasn’t happened to me… yet. But let me just say that my boyfriend better hide the ring VERY well because if I find the box I will 100% peek at the ring. 100%.
There is no talking me down bees. I don’t even ever peek or snoop for Christmas presents but this ring would be the end of me.
Curioisty would have killed me, the cat.
Anyone peek or not peek? Tell me stories!

I did! I know I shouldn’t have. In my defence, he did not hide it very well and I didn’t snoop. It was in his sock drawer and I fold the washing. He probably had it for almost nine months by the time he got around to giving it to me! What was I supposed to do?! 😛

We shopped for it together but I left while he made the final decision. And then a few weeks later I saw some paper with the jeweller’s letterhead on it, left lying in our bedroom. It was the tax invoice and I totally read it. Shouldn’t have and all it told me that I didn’t already know was which of the 2 bands we’d talked about he went for. Not quite the same as spying the actual ring, but still. Cant’ say I wouldn’t have looked in the box if I’d found it.

I didn’t find the ring but my bf held out for five months on not letting me see it. That’s a long time considering I usually get what I want with enough begging He offered me one chance to see it and just take it. I couldn’t resist seeing it but I didn’t take it and opted for the “surprised” proposal. When he showed me the ring, I had about 3 hours of sleep so when he finally proposed and I saw the ring again, it felt completely new lol.

the ring was in our hotel 24/7 for 5 week as we travelled Europe but I didn’t peek. I wanted Fiance to propose how he wanted to and the ring is just a pretty symbol. I was happy to wait until the proposal to see it

Yes. I dated my DH for 11 years. We moved in together around 8 years. Within a week of me moving in I found THE BOX. I was shuffling through closets figuring out where things should go. So I told him right away. AND I couldn’t stand not having the ring. So we discussed it being a promise ring instead of an engagement ring. We didn’t get engaged for 3 years after and I was party to picking out the ring.

I am pretty certain that he does not have a ring yet (or if he does, he is REALLY good at hiding it)- but if I stumbled upon it, I would DEFINITELY peak! I am EXTREMELY curious and impatient and I would not be able to resist. And I do not think it would lessen the proposal at all as it would still be a suprise as to how he does it and what he says.

Thankfullt we’re in LDR, or I would have looked at it for sure. I probably wouldn’t go looking, since I stopped looking for presents when I was 9, but I’d try it on for sure.
He did, however, told me he has it, showed me the back of the box, the specs (and I could’t make out if it’s a 0 or a 9 on the TCW of the side stones! it bugged me until I saw it) and he told me the company. I looked through their entire inventory, stalked their instagram and emailed them the specs, but they couldn’t help me.

He hasn’t received the ring yet but I know that he ordered it cause I was checking his email for an evite from his mom that she told me he never responded to and I saw an email saying that it’s being made and they’ll contact him when it’s ready to be shipped out. I’ve been checking him email everyday now! 😊
