I thought this would be an interesting poll, since this discussion came up on another thread 🙂 Just wondering how many bees picked their own engagement rings, or whether their Fiance picked it on their own. Vote away!

I didn’t really have an option, since we just shopped online as we’re across the country from our jeweler! But I voted that we went shopping together and I picked it out myself as I chose from pictures online and conversations with the jeweler.

We like 800 miles from each other, so we did virtual shopping over skype. I picked mine out and then he picked the diamond to go in it.

I was not involved at all other than I told him my size. I trusted that my Fiance would pick out something beautiful and unique because he is like that. I was totally surprised when he showed it to me. It was absolutely beautiful. Funny thing is that he was seriously nervous about picking the style ring. I gave him thumbs up 🙂

I gave him a list of things I would ideally like, he went and picked the diamond, ring and band w/ my list.

we went shopping together and i picked out 2 rings.. he chose 1 of them (rings were only different in color and carat, not style. he knows i’m very picky!)

We worked backwards… I showed him the wedding band that I really, really loved and then he found an e-ring in the same line at Tiffany’s. He did a great job!

We both went together one day to look at rings. But he did not let me know when I will be recieving it. I had three rings that I loved, he just had to make the final decision on which one to get. So he kind of picked it out, but my friends and sister influenced him on getting the one that I was wanting the most. 🙂

I told him the shape of the ring that I wanted and the metal. We went looking twice, so he could see some in person. He picked it out all by himself in the end and did a great job!

I didn’t vote bc i had a semi-different situation. I asked if we could go shopping together but Fiance thought that was unromantic. So, I told him my 3 favorite shapes, and asked him to please consult my bff for help picking out something my style. She knew EXACTLY what I wanted because we’d be internet shopping for e-rings since long before we even knew our current guys 🙂 So, he did all the research and shopping with a little guidance from her and got something awesome.

I told him the cut of diamond I wanted, that I preferred color over carat weight and the type of band I wanted and let him do the rest. I wasn’t going to leave my engagement ring to chance.

We shopped together while we were already engaged. It was great!
