I actually think this is a kind of cute idea, and you’re lucky he was game! This never would have occurred to me, but I’ve heard that sometimes people propose with a loose stone and they pick out (or design, or whatever) the setting together, although if you liked anything other than a round brilliant that might make it harder if you didn’t want to tell ahead of time.

I never thought if “proposal” ring vs. engagement ring, but now that you’ve brought it up…I guess I did have a proposal ring…well, more of a proposal “rock”.  My fiance wanted me to design my own ring so that I would have exactly what I wanted.  So when he proposed, he proposed with an uncut gem-grade aquamarine stone that he had superglued to a sterling silver band he picked up at Kohl’s.  The idea was to have the stone cut down to size and have me pick my setting.  He just wanted to have SOMETHING to put on my finger when he propsed.  I wore my literal ROCK on my finger for a month or 2 while we picked out my enagement ring.  I miss my rock, but LOVE my ring.  We ended designing and purchasing my engagement ring and wedding band from Brilliant Earth in San Francisco…which I highly recommend by the way.

The first picture is the proposal “rock”…the second is the enagement ring.

My husband proposed with an evening watch, knowing full well (without even asking me) that I would want to design my own.
