I am not engaged yet but I have chosen a ring and told my SO to choose whatever carat size he likes for the center stone. I know I’m going to be curious about the size of my ring but would feel terrible asking him. I would in no way want to seem ungrateful. I’m just a very curious person.
How did you find out your ring’s stats? Did you ask your fiance for the certification? Pick the ring out yourself? Get it appraised? Guess?

My fiance was so excited about how “well” he had done, he offered the information up himself. Maybe just wait and see if he offers the information up to you before you start worrying about asking. If he doesn’t offer it, I’m sure you’ll end up seeing it when you fill out insurance information.

I was involved in choosing mine but I would guess most people would find out through him telling you, the cert or the insurance valuation.

We went together to pick it out. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with browsing, or even discussing the purchase – I kind of looked at it as a big purchase we were making together, and relied on him to tell me when we were exceeding what he could manage to pay. My thought is we’ll have these kinds of things to deal with in the future, so… yeah. It made sense.
Even if you’re not comfortable asking him the carat size, make sure he gets it independently appraised – we had to do this to get the rings insured, which is something you definitely want to do.

We picked the ring out together, and it came with an appraisal.

If its a good jeweller, they will give you all the papers. It should have the carrat weight, colour, clarity and cut. Since mine is a polar bear diamond, came with a authenticity certificate (where it exactly came from, when it came from the mine, the rought weight, when it was cut, its serial number) and the GIA certificate and the jeweller got it appraised, so I have that paper too.
Its a good idea to have all that paperwork. Expecially if you want it insured, they require an appraisal and the certificate (well most do)

we picked basically together….there was a difference on bigger carat or better quality, he wanted better quality. Ours came with an apprasial

Fiance was so proud of himself he showed me the GIA report. Also, if you plan on adding it to the homeowners insurance you’ll get to see it 😉

My husband was so happy with how he did too, and knew that I’d be dying to know the stats, that he went and grabbed the certificate within 10 minutes of proposing. I never found out the cost or apprasial though cause he took care of the insurnace so I didnt have to see it.

FH offered up the info. I also saw the appraisal when I added it to my insurance policy.

Fiance had an idea of what I wanted, and I told him to make sure he had a GIA report! He almost immediately rattled off all the specs after popping the question lol. He knew he did good.

My Darling Husband refused to tell me the stats, but I keep all our important documents so guess who keeps the GIA certificate. LOL. I only know the stats of my center stone though, he won’t tell me the stats of the setting, but I have a good idea based off of the other similar settings I’ve seen online from this designer. (DH tweaked the setting a little)

With my ex fiance, I compared the diamond to size charts and guesstimated? I still really have no idea what size that diamond is.
