@Creiddylad:  you’re not weird at all for looking at rings–but this is a decision for both of you–not just when to get engaged but he may want to have the experience of picking out your ring himself–some guys are really into that part (mine is) so don’t remove him from the equation

I think everyone likes to look at rings, heck I did that when I was single. Just save pictures of what you like for later, but don’t start planning to buy or anything. You’ll get your ring when it’s the right time, and if you know your SO isn’t ready you don’t want to come off like you’re in it for the jewelry.

Whilst I think it is good to have an idea on costs and what you love for rings, you may have rushed ahead just a teeeeny bit given you think he is not ready for this to happen so soon.

Next time you chat about it I would mention that you could send him some pictures of rings you love but dont talk about the pricing of it.

Don’t worry about looking at rings, it’s normal! It’s great that you’re figuring out what you want. I would not, however, email the sellers because you might be wasting their time if it doesn’t happen soon.

Those rings are so unique!  That’s awesome.  I think it’s totally normal to start looking and becoming educated on what you want.  Make a folder on your computer and save a bunch of pics, but definitely let this be something that he decides to do when he’s ready. 🙂

I agree, I don’t think it’s weird to get an idea of styles you like and the price. However, I would be careful not to get too involved since you haven’t gotten the go-ahead from your SO. Honest and open communication are key and when you’re ready to have the conversation, then you can bring it up. But until you and your SO are on the same page, I’d keep the ring searching to a minimum. Trust me, it only makes waiting seem so much longer sometimes!

I don’t see anything wrong wtih this. I actually have a Pinterest for rings.It’s mainly because I am one of those people who doesn’t feel comfortable with a choice until I’ve examined just about every possibility….
