I’m expecting a proposal in the next few weeks (my mom gave him our family diamond & we’re planning a winter wedding). I’d really like to propose back to him after he asks me. Maybe not immediately, but soon after. I need some advice with HIS ring! I’d like something unique, but not too flashy. Maybe something with historical significance? He’d appreciate something symbolic, and he’s also very into computers. Anyone have any suggestions?
Suggestions with the actual post-proposal proposal would be awesome too!!! Thanks everyone!

Does it have to be a ring? I bought Fiance an engagement PS3 🙂

I proposed to my Fiance. I got him a pendant, but maybe a signet ring? Those are very masculine : )

How historical are you thinking? I’ll be getting my SO a birthday/engagement present (since most likely we’ll be getting engaged a few weeks before his birthday) a Norse Rune ring. He’s wanted it for a while.

@LiliKitty: Oooh where did you find a Norse Rune ring? Sounds really neat!
And no, it doesn’t have to be a ring, but I guess I figure if I’m wearing one he can too! 🙂

@Evie: I don’t have any reviews of it, since I haven’t bought anything yet. But I found the site a couple years ago (yes, that’s how long I’ve been putting off buying this thing!). Google it, since for some reason my bookmarks are being dumb – Badali Jewelry.

This is what I’m giving my bf for his engagement ring: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dragon-Tungsten-Carbide-Celtic-Ring-Mens-Jewelry-Wedding-Band-Silver-Gold-New-/320880486568?pt=Metal_Fashion_Rings&var=&hash=item4ab5f7a8a8
I showed it to him so I know he likes it, but I’m not sure if he knows I’m buying it for him. (He knows I was going to, but I told him he needed to get re-measured and he hasn’t done it yet. The ring is in the mail so if it doesn’t fit I’ll take advantage of the seller’s lifetime warranty and just exchange it.) I was hesitant at first to get him something so cheap but I figure if that’s the one he likes then that’s the one he likes. He was looking at a lot of celtic patterns when we went ring shopping together, and he loves dragons, so I knew even before I showed it to him that it was the one. 🙂
But prior to that I was considering giving him a morse code ring. Something like this: http://www.fatcowdesigns.com/prodtype.asp?CAT_ID=137
My bf is also a huge nerd (and a dancer, what a wonderful combination!). He loved the idea of morse code rings. They are definitely symbolic, the ones in that link aren’t too flashy, and they kinda fit into the historical/computer thing if you stretch it. Maybe he’d like something like that?
As far as ideas for the post-proposal proposal, I can’t help there. I’m still wondering what to do for my own bf, so I’ll be stalking this thread to see what other people suggest!

I will be doing the same however this is more expensive because it will eventually be reused as a wedding band.
If we weren’t reusing our rings I would have gone less expensive. Stainless, silver or tungsten. We have already exchanged silver rings earlier in our relationship and that would have made a good engagement ring really. Both we picked up at little shops run by thier artists. His has a spinning band ontop of the band that’s got a hatched pattern it it – he considers it his little secret toy which delights my slightly adhd sweetie. I don’t have pictures of his silver ring but I have one of his real engagement ring. I would assume his silver ring would likely be a traveling stunt double
This is his ring actual engagement ring which is two tone gold with a princess cut diamond in a bezel simulated tension band with sand blasted finish:

I just wanted to tell you that I think this is so sweet and such a great idea.
Post # 13
I love all of these ideas! It’s really neat to see other people doing this, too.
Here’s the ring I’m 99% sure that I’m going to get:
It reads A Vila Mon Gardi Li Mo Ring (“Here is my heart guard it well”), and is inspired by the 15th century French original which is located in the British Museum, London (according the The Museum Store).
What do you think? I figure if it’s awful looking in person then I’ll just look for a different one, since it’s not too pricey.

I like that a lot! The saying is good, it has a historical background to it, it isn’t too flashy. I’m glad you were able to find something you liked. 🙂
