I am totally confused by your post…I thought you helped pick out your ring and I could have sworn you posted a picture of it?!?

(It is beautiful – I can understand why you are excited…just don’t understand the post…lol)

milabeehappy:  eh, if I knew what it looked like from pictures and I was waiting for the proposal, I would want some surprise of seeing it FIRST at that moment. I kind of compare it to picking out your own bday gift but waiting until your birthday to get it. So it’s still somewhat special

Yes ๐Ÿ˜ฟ I found an email (he had me print something out and the header was “Engagement Ring”) of course I snooped. The email described it to a tee, but there was no picture. So it was kind of still a surprise!

I still think it’s unfair how some couples choose (or she chooses) the ring then he keeps it hidden until he’s ready to give it to her. Why not give it immediately?? Why just keep it hidden?

While I’m generally terrible with surprises, if I knew he had the ring here, I would not want to look at it because I want the moment of the proposal to be the first time I see it.  He really wants to be involved in picking out my ring, and so do I, so we agreed that I would pick my top 3 styles and he gets the final say.  I know he hasn’t bought it yet (as I continue to look daily!) and he’s not going to propose until after his sister’s wedding this fall so I still have a while to go.

I’d TOTALLY peek at my ring. No guilt either!

I mostly designed my setting – with three options to choose from for the basket so I will still be getting a little surprise…but honestly if my SO were to leave it in the apartment I would sniff it out and definitely peek! I think he will have it sent to his parents house though ๐Ÿ™ Probably a good thing because I would feel SOOOO guilty haha.
