I’m picky as well and my Fiance knew this. I literally just walked him into Zales where they had the ring I wanted, tried it on, and it was perfect. We had already been at the mall and were heading out when we walked past there. He could’ve come back for it but he chose to just buy it then. He wishes it could’ve been a surprise but I love him and my ring so much it didn’t matter to me that it wasn’t a surprise.
Oops just saw the update lol. Congratulations!!

Yes, definitely as a lesson! I sometimes get way “into” things that really don’t matter that much in the end. I have the habit of hyperfocusing on issues almost to the point of making myself sick! I’m trying to practice not wanting to control everything so much and will keep this situation in mind in the future.
Thanks for your kind words everyone! Here’s a picture of my current ring. I actually find it quite elegant and beautiful, but really had trouble finding a band that I liked with it. I will post a picture of the new ring once it’s all ready! (Don’t mind the law books, it was taken for a “picture of your ring at work” thread here on WB)

I was super nervous about that too. I gave him hints and shared little details about what I like in a ring. He picked it out completely by himself, and when the time came I LOVED it. Sure, there might be ‘better’ rings out there but I think the sentiment of him putting in so much time and effort mixed with the emotion I felt when he proposed made the ring he picked out the most beautiful ring in the world.
If you truly feel that he can not pick something that you will love I would pick the ring after the actual engagement… but I agree with PP that picking it before shouldn’t matter if you can pick it after… Good luck!
Ugh, just saw the update. lol. I’m distracted today.
Beauty ring, congrats!! 🙂
