Just because you picked it out doesn’t mean that he will do it right away.  My husband had the ring for a long time before proposing.  I’m sure that he will make it wonderful and special!

I picked out my ring in November and received it Christmas Day just as I had expected.

It didn’t take away the magic. You have chosen to spend your lives together because you can’t imagine it any other way. That’s magic!

I was sorta wondering the same thing as my bf and I picked the ring together too and I’m now waiting, but honestly, I dont think it does ruin anything.  I think I’d feel MUCH worse thinking that my bf picked a ring without me knowing what it was like, it’s just too much money to spend if you don’t like it.  Besides, you still wont know when the proposal is coming.  AND, I truly loved that experience of ring shopping together, I’ll never forget it, and its all part of the process working up to the marriage πŸ™‚

Don’t worry, it shouldn’t take the magic away! My fiance and I pretty much picked out the ring together. Besides, its the new fiance that makes it magical…not the ring (but, thats nice tooWink)!

It won’t take the magic away. I picked out my ring and hubby proposed months later and I was totally surprised…I didn’t even recognize the ring! I came back from the bathroom and this woman came up to me and told me I dropped something and handed me the ring. I looked at it and said no, this isn’t mine.

I’m sure it will be amazing when it happens, even though you know about the ring πŸ™‚

No worries. We picked out my ring in April and he proposed a month later.  I was still surprised because of his timing. I wasn’t expecting it to happen at that moment.  And I still cried and laughed.  So just be on cloud nine right now knowing that it will happen soon! Have fun! πŸ™‚

I pretty much did all the research about diamonds and found my ring by myself. My Fiance is horrible at shopping and I knew that if I just picked my ring (within the budget he gave me) it would make everything much easier for him. He was very appreciative. I picked my ring out in February of last year, and he proposed in August. He told me that he went to one other jeweler to compare pricing on the diamond, but the one I picked ended up being a better quality, and lower priced so that was the one he bought!

Oh, and I thought our proposal was still super awesome; even though I knew what ring he would buy. I didn’t even care about the ring anymore at that point, I just wanted to be his wife!

congrats πŸ™‚ I picked out my own ring and wouldn’t have it any other way. There’s no quicker way to kill the just-engaged buzz than to receive a ring you don’t like.  Enjoy this time of anticipation!
