Just tell him you’re still in graduate school and are only just now talking about getting engaged.  You want to be able to tell your SO exactly what you want but you’re not sure when the proposal is going to happen.  2-3 months is a long time (even if it was a lie)- I’m sure the jeweler won’t think too much of it if it doesn’t happen in that time frame.


ETA- make sure you thank him profusely for ordering that sample!



Keep it simple.  No overthinking necessary!

I would tell him that you’re just getting ideas, but the ball is in your SO’s court.  So essentially the timeline is up to him ;]

@santabarbarabee:  Jewelers do quotes all the time. Just return the sample, tell him you love the ring and will be in touch when you get engaged. Get his name & business card, so when you’re ready to buy you can go back to him (so he gets the commission if they sell that way). No big deal, seriously. Don’t feel pressured.
