You can go into a jewelry store and get sized anytime. Then you can just tell him “Hey honey, I wear X size ring.”

Easy, peasy!

As for the other stuff, you can simply ask if he wouldn’t mind if you gave him a few ring ideas to start with and he can go from there. The worst thing he can happen is he says no to that, but it couldn’t hurt to ask!

I would be open and honest with him. I would tell him that I had seen many rings in bridal magazines and websites and realized that I had specific tastes.

I would suggest that we go look at a few rings so he would know what my tastes were, then leave it up to him after that.

Yeah- I would either e-mail him pictures of rings you would like OR suggest ring window shopping so he can understand what you are trying to go for. I am sure he will pick out the ring for you once he knows your taste! Good luck and welcome!!!

My SO and I checked out a few jewelry stores and I looked a little on my own. When I found ones that I liked, I sent him an email that had links and my ring size to use as a guide. That way he has it written down for whenever he is ready. I’m pretty sure we found THE ring the other day and I’m crossing my fingers that he orders it soon.

Most men won’t remember specific rings or styles if you point them out, your best bet is to have it written so he doesn’t have to play the guessing game later on.
