    Not tacky. Carpe diem.

    Not tacky, I’d say go for it! But I’m kind of confused about the part where you talk about your boyfriend and not trying to pressure him. As PP said, please make sure you make it clear what your intentions are and that you are not trying to push him into proposing earlier or that he needs to buy a bigger diamond than what you bought.

    tinyelf :  That sounds wonderful! Please come back and share the ring after you purchase it, it sounds like it’ll be beautiful.

    tinyelf :  I say go for it! I’m also an April baby, so maybe I’m biased, but I buy myself nice things all the time and I don’t feel the need to have a reason for it or to explain to anyone else.

    tinyelf :  heck no it is in no way tacky!

    although I would tell bf that it is is no way a himt to him so he understands that this is just something you want which it already sounds lile he understands and is totally ok with it! 

    My first ring my husband ever bought me way a .25ct solitaire and it was so sweet I still have it now in a pendant!

    Not tacky at all!

     (And if you do want your engagement ring to be bigger than the one you buy for yourself, there’s no harm there, either. It’s okay to want things that cost a fair amount of money.)

    I love this and wish more women would buy themselves diamonds, to be honest.

    Not tacky at all! You makee your own money so go for it! In Europe wearing a diamond ring doesn´t scream Engaged or whatever like in the US. I´ve bought several rings myself and even wear a simple plane wedding band in a stack, just because I like it that way.
