Getting it custom made and we designed it together (well more …I designed it and he had approval/input) soo not so subtle 😛

this is what i did: 

i bought a ring that i loved the style of.. cut of stone & setting, & wore it.

I showed it to him & said.. “i decided to get this fake ring which is totally my style so people at school (university) think i’m engaged & wont try to hit on me.. i hate it and it would just eliminate it. so since i’m not engaged yet, i’ll wear this one in the mean time.” 

It totally worked! we would be watching t.v. some times & i would catch him studying the ring.. :] it took about 8 months (we had been together for 7 moths when i did this) & he proposed! with the perfect ring! turns out he had it custom made because he couldnt find anything like my “demo” ring… oh !! & when we would go out & people would complement my ring thinking it was real and congratulating us ( it happened SO manny times) I would say, oh, no. we are not engaged yet. This is my “demo” ring. :] 

so he always knew what i wanted & i never “pushed” him. :] GOOD LUCK!!

Luckily, early on SO asked me what my dream engagment ring is.  I’m “passionate” (his term) about diamonds, and he gladly visited a few places with me.   I love Asscher cut diamonds, and he knows it!

@imaynaya:  SO worries about selecting a diamond I’ll love, so I compiled a wishlist online.  When he asked what I was doing, I casually mentioned that I was putting together a wishlist of amazing Asscher diamonds of various sizes at various pricepoints.  He asked if I’d mind sending him the list.   

At that point I was just OBLIGATED to send it to him!  Lol  🙂

We’ve gone back and forth about whether or not he should pick the ring alone or if I should be a part of it.  This way, he knows he’ll select a ring I’ll love, and I can be truly surprised!

My guy says he isnt ready to be married “right this second” but told me to pick my ring. He said there is no way he would want to risk getting me the wrong one. So I picked ecacy what I wanted, showed him a pic and wrote down all the stats and the site to order it from.
