Welcome to the Hive! what an exciting time for you right now!

Maybe send him 1-2 pics of rings you really like, just to give him some starting ground?

Hiya and welcome! I would definitely take it easy on your SO with the details, sounds like he really wants info, but there is enough out there to make his head spin! Think of it like this- you guys are desiding on what car to get, and he starts rattling off all this info that is just greek to you about makes an models… ” this one has a great MPG, but this one is more fun, or this one has heated seats, but this one has heated seats and a super charged engine..” 

Mean while your like,” I donno, get one with 4 wheels and a motor”.  Okay the example could have been much better, but I dont know anything about cars ^.^

With my guy I went over the top hinting (flat out pointing out) what I like, but it was so much info it was just in one ear, out the other. Finally I told him when he was ready to contact my close friend who has lots of ring ideas of what I like (whom he’s buddies with too, but you know, MY BFF).

If you think your guy would be okay talking about this stuff with your BFF (or close sister or something) you could try what I did, takes the pressure off a little, and he may like to get that second oppion from someone who knows you on that girly level. 

It sounds like things are headed in the right direction, so welcome to the waiting madness!

I found it really helpful to go ring shopping with my SO even though he’s getting the ring made and it will be a total surprise. It really helps to see things on your finger. He will start to see what designs you keep wanting to try on, and it will help him visualize what he likes on you. Sometimes you even get helpful salespeople who can point out pros or cons and help narrow things down.

I can relate! My SO and I spoke about wedding plans and he even asked me to e-mail him the picture of my favorite engagement ring and get my ring size.  Then yesterday I asked him about our plans to get married one day and I kind of pressured him to at least tell me if he had a good idea of when he’s planning on proposing/getting married and he said he has the time frame for both!  This whole waiting thing is making me so anxious.  At least I know its coming sooner than later. He says he doesn’t want to say anything because then it won’t be a surprise.
