I’ve done the same thing most people have said already. I’ve told my bf that I don’t want a diamond, that I don’t like solitares, and that I really want a sapphire. He’s already told me that he wants to pick the ring and surprise me with it. I feel like giving him a few basic guidelines is okay and he still has the freedom to choicest he wants. He has told me that if I don’t like it he wouldn’t be offended if I wanted to return it for something I liked, but I have faith that he will pick something I love, he’s done well so far on the jewellery he has bought me.

I think it’s enough just to give basic information and let him go from there- my Fiance and I did end up looking at some pictures, but I basically told him that I like yellow gold, and want something simple/delicate (which he would have figured out anyway, that’s what all of my jewelry is like) and he went from there and found me a more beautiful ring than I would have even picked out on my own. So everyone is happy- he got to make the decision, and I got a ring I adore.
