    Duh, of COURSE! It's sparkly and shinnnyyyy...

    No way. It needs to be a surprise.

    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! 😊
