If you’re really knowledgeable and he’s not, he might be intimidated if you try to discuss the 4 c’s, metal options and whatever else all at once. Maybe set up a day to go look at rings and just leave it at that. Once you do that, don’t discuss again or email pictures. Do you know how much guidance from you he wants? You also don’t want to take away the element of surprise IF he wants that.

  1. Does he know that picture was a joke? You probably really want to make sure he knows that πŸ™‚
  2. I would take a day to look with him – Darling Husband and I went out one day to several jewelry stores so that he had an idea of what I wanted (style/size/metal/etc) and then it was left in his hands to choose.  The rings that we landed on in the various stores were in a large price range – So, he could choose what fit his budget.  He ended up choosing the most expensive one (not expensive to lots of Bees, but he actually spent all of the money he had saved up for both an E ring and a wedding band).  
  3. Then, just try to be patient – Don’t continue sending pics/pointing out ones you like unless he asks you to.  Once you’ve put the ball in his court, you need to leave it there πŸ™‚

@Jenlon:  “Does he know that picture was a joke? You probably really want to make sure he knows that :)”

Exactly! That was my FIRST thought when I read the OP’s post! πŸ™‚

@purpledaisies:  Hinting with men, never a good idea. They really need to be told what you want in plain English so that you don’t a.) hate what he gets for you and b.) he doesn’t feel soo pressured by the cost he goes and gets a second job. But I’d definatly say its a green light. Go Go Go! πŸ™‚

I echo the pp that said he might be a bit intimidated by the fact that you know a lot about diamonds and jewelry.

I’m the same way, and SO likes me educate him on diamonds every now and then.  We’re not planning to be engaged for a while, but he had asked me if I would explain diamonds and my preferences to him little by little. 

We’ve actually gone into a few jewelry stores before, and he’s really funny.  He’ll grab a seat while I ask to see a few stones.  Then if I see one he likes, he comes over and looks with me.  He said that he doesn’t want to look at everything up close so that he remembers only the stones/ring styles I like.  πŸ™‚
