    No. I really wanted the whole thing to be a surprise but my Fiance wanted me involved with the ring because he was so worried about getting something I loved. So when it finally arrived, I knew where he hid it and it taunted me for a few weeks before he finally asked! It was more gorgeous that I could have imagined. 🙂

    i chose my rings, picked them up when it arrived at the store, and since my husband and i were long distance at the time, i kept them until i saw my husband again. i did try them on ocassionally for fun and it didn’t ruin any excitement. my ring was also custom made, so i kinda had to take a look at it to make sure it was right.

    My fiancé proposed with a stand-in ring on vacation and when I said yes, he gave me a little laminated picture of the real ring which he’d ordered – my dream ring. So when it came, I knew what to expect. He was away working though so I had to wait like a week before opening it! That was hard!

    No. Mine designed a custome ring and told me when he picks it up. I knew where it was bit it never crossed my kind to peek. It was worth the surprise. Although in the moment I was so taken with looking at it I took it out of the box rather than let him put it on my finger. Oops

    Yes. I picked mine out and wanted to make sure it fit. I know when he proposes that it will be just as special (:

    Mine will be from MoiCo too, and I’ve picked up setting and the upgrades, but I’m going to turn it right over as soon as it gets here without peeking. It’s going to kiiiiillllllll me, but I’m kind of a steamroller in our relationship, so I’ll just have to turn it off and let him have “the moment” he wants. I’m not a patient person 🙂
