None! I let my husband (well boyfriend at the time clearly) pick it out. I sent him ideas from Pinterest that I liked, but he took his sister shopping in secrecy in order to make it a perfect surprise for me. He actually chose something a complete 180 from the styles I had sent him, but I love it even if it is not what I would have picked out for myself. It was his thing to propose to me, and I felt like picking out rings or telling him what to buy was dictating if and how he chose to ask me to marry him. Call me old fashioned, but I liked it that way.

Oh boy… I think I have a ring shopping problem. Hahaha. In my “ring” album right now I have almost 150 pictures saved if that tells you anything. 

I looked online for a while but ended up doing a complete 180 on what I thought I wanted when I tried things on my fingers. Then I went to 4 more stores but nothing spoke to me, so I started spending far too much time on etsy and Pinterest in search of “the one”.

I too got pretty frustrated until I finally decided to go custom. I was just so dissapointed that nothing I saw in stores was perfect, particularly because I want rose gold and it was so hard to imagine the color of the metal being different than what they have.
