Since you guys talk about getting engaged all the time, I would just simply bring it up and let him know that you’re excited about planning your next step as a couple and that you have been looking at rings and you’ve found that rings x, y, and z strike your fancy.

For me, my Fiance was dead set on picking the ring out himself and making it a surprise. He asked me to tell him some things that I wanted, but we never picked out rings together. I was very scared that he would pick something that I didnt care for, but he actually did a really good job.

I agree, if you’re already openly talking about the wedding, you can totally give him some guidance on what you want.  My SO and I are in a similar situation (where I know the proposal is coming soon, but don’t know the details), and I’ve given him my top criteria – things I definitely want in a ring (metal type, details like sidestones/halo setting, center stone preference).  I’ve also sent him some examples that I’ve found online of rings I really like.  With that info, he’s working on his own to find a ring.  If it’s important to you that he knows how your tastes have changed, just tell him.

This is what I did (hah!) but Fiance and I would be walking at a department store and I would say “Oh, let’s go look at something while we have a minute”. Then we would proceed to the jewelry counter in which I would pretend to be looking at watches or whatever. Then we would eventually gravitate towards the rings and I would say “what do you think about this one?” and point to a diamond. Then he would give his two cents in, etc. etc. I think it broke the ice.

I also did this! and I  send him hints in emails or flip through a jewlery shopping channel when nothing else is on and start talking about what I like in jewlery and what I don’t like.

I would just talk to him about it – Most guys just aren’t good with subtle hints…

I’ve had a lot of people compliment my ring by saying what a good job Fi did picking it out.

How that happened:

1. I found ring.

2. I told Fi about ring.

3. I showed him the ring.

4. I got the perfect ring (with no stress for either of us:)
