    We went shopping together to get an idea of what I liked, but he picked it out on his own, and it wasn’t really what we had looked at together, but I love it. I think he got a sense of my tastes, and went from there.

    Maybe add a poll option for us heirloom ring brides? I knew my center stone because it’s from the family, but he picked out the setting on his own. So I was surprised, but not entirely, even though I didn’t choose anything.

    I sent him pictures of some rings that I liked and he picked out the actual e-ring himself.  My tastes are very simple though, and I didnt worry too much about the side view.   I wasnt interested in any filigree, or much detail in the band.. just plain solitare on pave band.

    Hello neighbour!

    First off, welcome to the hive!

    Fiance totally surprised me, I had absolutely no idea he was going to proposed when he did. He did a fantastic job picking out my set, I wouldn’t change it for nothing else. πŸ˜€

    My first e-ring I was shocked by. Did NOT expect it. But then problems ensued with the ring, and finally the ring and I parted ways.

    New ring was not a surprise, as I picked and ordered it, haha.

    We had the ring custom made, but I didn’t get to see the finished product until he proposed. I was still surprised when I saw the finished product because he changed a few things around to make the ring even better than the one that we’d picked out. The thing that surprised me the most though, was the proposal. Smile

    I really liked split shank halos, but didnt know how to describe it to him so I just told him I liked halos. I showed him a picture and when he opened my ring box for me to give it to me, I was stunned to see that he chose a split shank! It was a total surprise and there was no way he could have known. So I was very surprised!

    I voted we picked it out together before the proposal, both the setting and the stone. BUT I still got a suprise! The setting we picked out has 2 suprise sapphires. The jeweler we went to didn’t have the exact setting in stock, he just had a photo of it. I thought there would only be one sapphire on it, like the ring we used as the inspiration for the ring we bought, but when my Fiance gave it to me I noticed that it had 2 peekaboo sapphires, one on either side of the ring! I absolutely love it, beucase I was wondering which side I would wear the sapphire on….

    Nope I’m one picky person and despite being together 7 years, Fiance still can’t nail the gifts on the head. Not that I previously minded, but with my e-ring we both wanted something that I knew I would like so we picked the ring out together. We were both happy how it turned out, and he still got to add the surprise element with the proposal.

    To answer your questions:

    Was 100% involved. The surprise wasn’t ruined. Why? Just because you know what type of ring you’re getting doesn’t mean you know WHEN it’s coming and the when is the surprise.
