    I picked it out.

    My fiance/husband picked it out.

    We picked it out together (joint effort!)

    @Stranger516:  I went ring shopping with Mother-In-Law and SIL a couple months before he went ring shopping. I made it easy for him too – three stores, three settings each, and the rest was up to him.

    I mostly picked it out but I also gave him other options of rings I liked so I was not sure what I was going to be getting. When you find the right ring you will just know, just like the wedding dress.

    I really did NOT want to go ring shopping with my fiance. (Just personal preference).  So, I went with my mom and figured out what style, etc. I liked.  Then I sent the information to my best friend as well.  Fiance contacted her when he was ready to start looking and she gave him the pictures of what I liked.  He had my ring custom designed based on the pictures and it couldn’t be any more perfect!  🙂

    We were on a cruise celebrating FI’s parents 50th wedding annversary and his brother’s 25th wedding anniversary.  He asked me to come with him to the jewelry shop saying he wanted me to look at anklets, then after a few minutes of him speaking to a lady in the shop he called me over and told me to pick one. I had no idea what was going on and was like “what some earrings of something?” He just answered with “No” and pointed at the case in front of me and I started to cry. I picked a ring that I never thought I would pick in a million years but after I put it on I knew it was mine. Realizing after he’d paid for the ring, that he still hadn’t actually asked me to marry him, he said “so I take it that’s a yes” I said ” of, course are you crazy” (we’d been together for 6 years at that point, I was a little let down it wasn’t more romantic but that’s just the way he is, I still love him and it makes for an amusing story.)

    DH picked mine out without ANY input from me.  I didn’t even know he was looking.  Couldn’t have been happier with it.

    I sent mine a ton of pictures of all sorts of rings that I liked. He got a good idea of my preferences from them but the actual ring choice was all his. He did good!!

    Wow, you sound like me and my fiancee!! We go to the mall and to help my boredom, I go through the aisles first and try to pick out what I think she would like. I have gotten pretty good and sometimes i even see things she passed over.


    Also, your criss cross tacori looks like my fiancees ring too! Hers is a Verragio. And we are from MD…interesting…lol
