The ring is pretty, however I do agree that talking with him is probably the best.  

I do also feel many of the posters here are being very judgemental 🙁 we need to encourage, not bring someone down. .just my two cents

Adults talk to each other, especially something as serious as marriage.  I don’t get why you would have to hint around.  Is this the type of ring you would like for an engagement ring?  I have bought cz rings (per my boyfriend’s suggestion) to see what kind of styles I liked and I returned all of them.  I don’t know, I guess my relationship is much more direct and open than yours.

This is weird. My Darling Husband and I went to jewellers and looked at the options. I tried several on and he bought the one I liked the best. We discussed the options extensively.

Just talk to him. My so actually brought up us getting married in a convo a few weeks ago. I was so excited to hear the ideas he had for us I was sold lol. I believe your SO will feel the same. Best wishes

In my experience, hints don’t work very well with most men. There’s this new thing called conversation, you ought to give it a try.

Ouch bees. OP I would say the ring may not do the job. Guys don’t listen or pay attention as much as we think.

Have you tried talking with him? 

 

Buying yourself jewelry is perfectly normal. Buying yourself jewelry as a substitute for having a conversation with the man you love is more than a little odd.

I agree that I don’t think this is the way to go. I would just bring it up and talk to him about it.

If you start wearing this on your ring finger I could see it backfiring majorly…

I wear rings frequently too, and I would never expect my SO to take that as a hint that I want one from him, anymore than I would wear necklaces to hint that I want one from him. If anything, he’d assume I didn’t need another one because I have some already XD

TALK TO HIM

ohbehappy:  I think some of the responses are a little harsh, but I do agree that you need to have a real conversation about what you want. I was lucky in that my now husband asked me what kind of ring I would want after we discussed our timeline, and I’m glad he did because what I wanted and what he had in mind were completely different (marquise vs round). 

Dropping hints or buying a marquise ring for me to wear probably wouldn’t have caught my hubby’s attention because he doesn’t do well with hints. I have to be very direct, and I showed/sent him pictures of what I liked so that he had a very clear idea to run with, which he did wonderfully. I hope that you are able to bring up this up with your boyfriend because you will have tougher conversations ahead of you. Don’t be too shy to express your wants!

Short answer: no

Long answer: no, he will not get the hint.
