I thought that I would have so many options and eventually just have to say “here’s a basic style, just pick something”  but I actually fell in love with one particular ring.  It was the first one I ever saw that I really liked and I kept coming back to it when I was looking at rings. 

By now i’ve given up, that ring is meant to be mine 🙂

In fact, I was practically having a panic attack thinking he was going to do it on V-day, and I couldn’t believe how relieved I was when he didn’t. It’s not that I don’t want to marry him, but I’m no longer in the OMG IT NEEDS TO HAPPEN NOW phase, so I was seriously sick with anticipation all day. I was so glad to have my stomach back when it didn’t happen? How strange is that?

I have only two styles I like, the Princess cut and the round cut and I want the three stone white gold. He says to let him handle it but I am going to give him a wallet size pictiure of the two styles I like so that he has it. I have to wear it for the rest of my life so I think he wants me to definetly have a say in what I want… I have no problem leaving the rest up to him….

I know how you feel, girl!! And your tastes sound very similar to mine. (I just unearthed an entire post I made on a ring I am obsessed with here.) Have you gone to look at rings together yet? That will help you get a sense of what you like and what suits you. Take him with you! He wants to get you something that you will like!

My boyfriend said to me a few months ago “I already know what I’m getting for you” and I panicked! I was like “But I don’t know what I want yet, how can you know?!” He’s so sneaky, I still have no idea what he’s planning.

I totally know how you feel! (: I had so many different ideas bouncing around for a while and was so afraid that I would change my mind once he got the ring. I didn’t know if deep down I wanted one more than the others haha. Luckily I fell in love with one particular ring, I’m really hoping that’s the one he gets me (:

Great approach to waiting.

I will say that now that I am engaged, I miss viewing the different rings I could see myself wearing.

I did this and drove myself crazy. Even after my Fiance had (unbeknownest to me) got the ring. He took a mix of all my tastes into account and got me something lovely. DO not worry about it so much, he will do good!

@smiley3: I’m the same as you smiley3! No matter how many rings I’ve looked at I always think of the one I fell in love with last May when we looked together for the first time. I think I’m stuck on it! Smile

I did the same thing!!  Every day a different email was sent with a new style.  

I recommend going to stores and seeing them in person.  They look totally different than what they do online.  Once I saw them in person, I knew only one style was for me!  When I went home to check the style online – it was something I totally wouldn’t have picked based on the picture from their website. 

Shop in person – one ring/style will steal your heart!

@authentic: Try mentioning that you’re not entirely sure what style of ring you like and that you’d like his input on what he thinks looks nice on your finger.

When I was showing SO the different styles of rings I liked there were some he said he didn’t like and said he had to see how they look on my finger before deciding on what style to buy. When we went together he picked out something different that he liked and when I tried it on I fell in love with it! So you may even find something completely different when you go with him.

I could have written this post! I go back and forth daily it seems like. At the end of the day though, I think I’ll be happy with whatever he decides on.
