I went in and said my partner had sent me to try some that we were looking at online. The whole time I was petrified someone we know would see me!

I went with a couple of my female friends this past weekend and me and one other friend tried rings on in a few stores lol. It’s fun! Anyway we went into Tiffany’s and there were several women trying enagement rings on by themselves and one was just with her Mom. I don’t think they will find it weird. Women just get it.

LOL I wish I had thought of that before I got engaged! I didn’t get to go ring shopping for my e-ring!

I went in with my sister a few weeks ago, just to look and dream πŸ™‚ They don’t mind, as long as it’s not too busy!

It’s not weird at all. My Boyfriend or Best Friend is never going to go ring shopping with me, ever. He is too traditional to be seen shopping for a ring with his girlfriend. This means I need to go alone to figure out what I like, I have tried rings on at about 4 stores, including Tiffany’s, and it has been a huge help. It made me realize I love round cut rings and do not like princess (a complete flip from looking online), and that anything more than about 1.5 carats looked too big. I also realized I really hate halos on my hand and love skinny bands. Not what I was expecting at all. All of the sales people were so nice and I was upfront about what I was doing. Just be sure to get their card so that you can sent your Boyfriend or Best Friend back there for ideas when the time comes.

Also, if you are worried about running into people, don’t be. I ran into someone two times– each time the line was “Oh it is so exciting, you and P are getting serious! I am happy for you”. No one thought it was strange (and my first run in was trying on rings at Tiffany’s happened 3 months into dating, 2 weeks after officially being his girlfriend when I really was just getting a birthday present). Happy ring shopping!

My Darling Husband was never going to be patient enough for  me to try on the number of rings I needed to try on to be sure I ‘found the one’. He would have lasted 3 rings (maybe 10-15 mins). I needed to try on hundreds and I went to 5+ stores, by myself. Then I told him which store and they had a file on me and what I wanted.

Have fun!

It is very helpful and fun! I think there is less pressure when the man isn’t there because they aren’t going to make a sale right then and there to you and he isn’t standing over you.  Some places will write the ring numbers on the back of their card for you and others have filled out a paper for what we looked at so if my SO ever went in they would be able to help him.

I went in to a few stores and tried on rings myself. But I only did it after he asked me to, so that I could tell him what I liked.

It is true…what you think you love, doesn’t always look the best on your hand!

Yes do it!  I went alone and with friends to try on rings before I was engaged.  I actually did this and found THE ring and called my bf (at the time) on the spot and he purchased it the next day πŸ™‚  We had talked about it all though, so I’m not insane πŸ™‚

I’ve done that a bunch of times. Most jewelers have been very polite and accommodating (though it helps that now I have a ring on my finger and they know I’m simply looking for a new one haha). Those that weren’t, I knew I didn’t want to give my money to πŸ™‚
