I strongly encourage you to go shopping together. Especially for boys who likely haven’t spend much time looking at rings, it can help to see them in person.

Also, if you love the idea of using your family ring, can you just change the setting, or pick out a wedding band together? Maybe when he sees how expensive rings are he will think again about turning down a free one.

@Zesty:  i’d push a little harder for the budget if i were you. i had trouble doing that, but everyone here on the bee told me “you’re getting married, you have to be able to talk about money” and they were right!

@houstonwhodat:  +1 to everything she said.

I love the first sapphire! Its beautiful!!!!

I’m stuck and would really love some advice. Should I go to a real jewelry store and try some on just to see? YES!!!! That is exactly what you should do! Have him come with you!

oh, hello there fellow antique lover of rings. You will certainly like mine if you like those….

All of those are great choices, and a tough pick. I’m going with 1 and 2, but I do like the geometry of 3. 1 and 2 are more sparkly, and I can’t help it, I love shiny. Do go and try some on. We looked on Etsy a great deal since there is such an outstanding variety of antique rings. It was great to have my fiance looking at them because he really understood what I liked. We ultimately bought a ring at an antique jewelry shop. If you’re near NC I’ll tell you the place, I highly recommend the place. (btw, we didn’t break the bank on our purchase, it was 1500 max)

I like the third one! It looks the most vintage (looks like it has a lot of history)

But if you want a little modern flare along with being vintage I would pick 1 or 2
