I came out and told him, I like these things, I hate these things, and things things are possible options. I told him that it HAS to be round cut, super sparkly, and in yellow or rose gold

I emailed him pictures of rings I liked and then would look at rings online right in front of him. HAHA

He actually couldn’t find the email for a little while and kept asking for me to re-send it. Now I know he was doing it to throw me off since he already had the ring at that point. 

He wanted to know what I liked so he could get me an awesome ring to wear forever!

One day while driving pass a huge jewelry store I told him “I hear they have some nice rings in there”. So he responded “Yeah? Well we’ll have to go in there one day”. No pressure. Then a few months later we were passing it again and he stopped. I didn’t know what to think and my heart was racing 1000 beats per minute. But I REALLY enjoyed that shopping exprience. That started our adventure. We didn’t find a ring there (too pricey) but I definitely saw my style. After researching some more I emailed him a few weeks later that I had found one online that I liked that wasn’t too expensive. He said it was nice and we should go look at it (I actually already looked at it in the store on lunch…hehe) but we ended up going to the store near our house to look and it and we both loved it. The price and everything! And  think it was good we go that route because SO knows I’m very picky.

I sent an email with pictures and subject line of “you get this for me?”

Surprisingly, it was his idea to “window shop” together – we had never really talked about engagement, marriage, etc, but when he asked me what I thought about buying a house since the market was good for buyers, I said “well hun, there are things we’d have to discuss before we buy a house” and he goes “I know, wanna go window shopping??” SO off we went, and I pointed out that I liked princess cut, and more of a vintagey feel, thin band… it’s perfect!

He asked me to look online and gather some photos and email them to him.

Mr. Tattoo asked me to create a wishlist on the website he was ordering from. He would log into my account often to see what I was picking and then once he realized that the same three rings always stayed, he picked one from that. He picked the one I wanted the most.

we went shopping together and I tried different styles on. I’m glad we did this, because I ended up with something completely different from what I thought I would have liked. I always thought I wanted princess cut, with diamonds along the band, but then ended up with a round cut solitaire… it suited my hand so much more! I strongly hinted that I liked one more than the others, and the smart boy got the hint!

Men are simple. They can’t take hints, so just make it as easy as possible. 

I sent him emails of the three I loved, and said ‘pick which one you like best’.

It sounds unromantic, but it ensures that you get the style you like!

We went together. I am extremely picky, but I wanted him to be involved in it. I think we did it perfectly.. for us at least. 🙂

I was shopping for a bracelet online one night when he called me. He asked what I was doing, and I told him. He wanted to see what I was looking at, so I shared the website. Through the conversation I went to look at necklaces and then rings, and we casually chatted about all the stuff. Laughing at hideous pieces, and admiring some. he asked about my ring preferences while I was looking at rings. I laughed and asked him why he was interested, he said he was gathering information. We had already discussed marriage by then. We’ve discussed rings a lot, and he has some pretty clear ideas of what I like.

Yeah… so what I did was drop a lot of clues that I thought made sense.  We even looked at rings together online but I am not very consistent when it comes to style and am incredibly picky over what details I like and dislike.  My main thing was this: old and not yellow gold.  I thought that narrowed it down, but when he took me to look at rings and showed me what he liked, I am really glad that we went together because we had a very different understanding of what I liked and disliked.  If he had picked any ring for me, I am sure that I would have liked it.  Knowing exactly what you want and waiting for him to go get it is the worst feeling in the world.  To me, it’s the kind of thing where once he knows what you want, he should run out and get it immediately, but that is apparently not how he operates and I am feeling incredibly impatient.

I just send him emails of the styles that I like, because I change my mind so often it’s up to him to choose the ring. I’d be fine with him merging different styles into one, it just has to look similar to the ones I’ve shown him.

Fiance and I talked about getting married/engaged before he proposed and we looked at some rings online together so I could show him what I liked. I have a very specific style and he wanted to make sure I loved my ring. I liked it because he had a good idea of what I wanted so the ring that he bought me was perfect even though it wasn’t the same as any that we’d seen online. I was still surprised 🙂
