Picked my own.
Picked my own.
I know the surprise is lacking, but it demonstrates that you guys have been talking about your futures (a good thing) and that he wants you to be happy with what you will be wearing. My fiance did the same thing and I am so happy he didn’t try to surprise me with a ring he picked out because he has very different taste in jewelry 🙂
It’s not weird. My Fiance picked out the ring, I didn’t like it and there were severe issues with quality. When I brought it up he admitted he was clueless, and I picked out my current ring.
I would just make sure to find out his budget. Because Fiance was on a specific budget for my ring.
Not weird and actually very common. I chose my rings.
I don’t think it weird….. For me it was a relief a lil. My Fiance bless his heart can be a little clueless when it comes to jewlery. He knows that I have a very particular taste and design is more important to me than it was to him. We talked about the ring at length and even worked with a designer. I told him right off the bat I did not want a diamond center stone. I originally wanted a sapphire because it was his birthstone. He chimed in at this point saying he had always wanted to do an emerald. One of the main reasons he loves how I look in them. I’m a natural redhead with (Emerald) green eyes as he always says. Lol. Plus, he travels A LOT for work. Mostly to Colombia, South America. He has an “emerald” guy there and worked with him for nearly a year to find the perfect stone. He picked the stone completely on his own. Then we designed the setting together and he kept it till he was able to propose. I love the ring. I love he chose my stone and that the emerald holds a lot of meaning to him. I love he wanted me to be apart of the design process and knew it was something important to me. I think if your fiancé wants to have you involved it’s great! Make it something fun you can do together. We went to work on the design with our jewler and then after celebrated at a winery with a wine tasting and a couple bottles to mark the occasion. Be realistic with him about the budget. Make sure you’re both comfortable or more so he is. Congrats! It’s an exciting time. Can’t wait for pics when the happy event happens!
Not weird—very considerate actually. I work in the bridal ring business and it is very difficult for most men to pick exactly what his future bride would want. There are just to many choices, and sayng “vintage or contemporary” are just to vague and confusing. He has your happiness at heart, which ultimatlely is the goal of a happy marriage. Enjoy shopping!
I picked my own ring. I think it’s fairly common nowadays for women to at least have heavy input on the style, if they’re not selecting the ring outright. I’m 98% sure that if my DH had picked my ring all on his own, I wouldn’t love it.
Thanks everyone! I guess I will commence shopping in earnest instead of just drooling over the e-ring pics on here. There are SO many I love
