My fiance and I picked out the setting together (I put it on and just KNEW!!), but he insisted on doing the diamond work himself. Also, I picked it out but still had to wait five months for a surprise proposal. I love the way we did it because I have a ring that is stunning, but he chose the diamonds, and also was able to shock me with a proposal. I think it’s sweet if you can give input because you WILL be wearing the ring the rest of your life – why not get something you love?

I think it’s okay to be involved in the shopping, he’s the one that’ll make the final decision. I bought a watch for the SO a couple weeks ago for our one year anniversary and it was so stressful trying to figure out what style I thought he would like and stuff. And that’s just a watch, not a symbol of our love and spending our lives together… lol. So I mean, if he wants you to be involved, I say go for it. It’s stressful, lol, trying to pick out something your SO would love, no matter how long you’ve known them.
