Haha I imagine I might of reacted the same. But this sounds like good progress. Maybe you could start small with online browsing and work your way up.

GoodlucK!

Wow, I so hear you on this one. I also thought I would have a lot more time to figure out what I liked and how this crazy thing is done. And then when I had my “ahhh we’re not on the same page about rings, are you even listening to me” freakout, he was like “Well… I ordered one of the ones you said you liked. So…” and I felt both pretty silly and blindsided.

But your guy wants to know all about what you like, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a little reassuring for him to see that you don’t know exactly how to do this either. Maybe give him a list of stuff you like and then go back in a jewelry store with some specific ideas? I didn’t even set foot in a physical store except to find out my size, but it’s probably a good idea.

i did it too! i was the same way – i kinda just let him run with it so i never ever even looked at the jewlery stores! same thing – one day we were walking through the mall and he was like lets look and i freaked – i was so out of my element in there but i ended up trying one on. but since he had brought it up, when we got home i got on the computer and showed him a few styles i liked – 2 months later i had a ring and now a fabulous husband!

Too cute! πŸ™‚ Well, now the cat’s out of the bag…have fun shopping around! And before you decide you like it, if you can, try it on! (Because as some of us know…sometimes how we feel about a ring is different when it’s “on”.)

Congrats! So excited for you!

Same reaction here. I was too chicken to walk inside.

I think it was a pretty cute reaction too πŸ™‚  Why not look online at style you like and then try them on in store later??

But this>> We pass one of the jewelry stores (I always make sure I’m not looking at them)<< You’re so much better than me.  I always mutter, “Sparkle!!”

Lol. A little warning would have been nice. πŸ™‚ But at least you know what he’s thinking now! I think PPs have covered anything else – start looking and getting an idea, and then ask him when he wants to go look in a store again. Just go try some on – but with some warning for you next time. πŸ™‚
