Did you/would you ring shop together, or have it be a surprise?

  • poll: Ring shop, or surprise?

    Shop rings together and purchase right then and there and then just wait for proposal.

    Shop to get sized & show him styles you like, let him choose the ring another time and surprise you

    Tell him what you do/don't like in a ring, have the rest be completely up to him

    Don't give hints, just let him surprise you one day.

    We went ring shopping together and he hid the ring for a while (we live together). He purposed while we were on vacation 4 months later!

    We shopped together and it was the best thing for us! I dont like surprises and my fiance really wanted to make sure I loved the ring that I would wear everyday. I love that it was something we were able to do together and I have no regrets.

    He knew I liked rose gold and I just casually mentioned I liked vintage-y looking jewelery but that was about it. It meant a lot to him to be able to pick it out himself. He went with his sister-in-law one day and chose the center diamond and the setting himself. I was totally blown away and it’s absolutely perfect.

    Neither one of us had any clue what we were doing, so we shopped together and I picked two settings that we both loved. He was able to sit there and listen to what the 4-C’s were for diamonds and then he picked the actual stone and which setting. It killed me to wait (only 5 months lol) to see what he picked, but I love that it is something we both loved and the final decision (which was important to him) really was his… but I knew deep down that no matter what I would love it since I had input, too. It worked for us.

    I got sized and showed him some examples I like, but I left everything up to him 🙂 He did perfectly.
