You will still be floored and surprised when it comes to the proposal. On the day of, I was about 99% sure I was getting proposed to  and it didn’t take away how special the moment was. I was also very  involved in the ring process, although I didn’t see the final result until it was on my finger. Congratulations on your pending engagement! It’s a very exciting time!

honestlawyer :  and even more irked that I now know it’s coming.

Well obviously you already knew it was coming since you bought the centre stone together, so I don’t know how you can be upset with this aspect.  

I can’t help but think this isn’t entirely an unfortunate accident, you told your BF several times you wanted your ring from this place and you kept checking their insta when you already knew they posted rings they made.  How many times have you looked at the stone that you know every facet off by heart?

Stop looking at the stone, unfollow the jeweler on instagram and try to put it out of your mine, it’ll look different in person so you’ll still be as surprised as you would always have been

Are you 1000% certain it’s your ring? Just let yourself doubt that it’s yours, it might be someone else’s! and then when you get proposed to, you’ll either be surprised because your ring is different or so happy that it was in fact yours you saw!

abouttodoit17 :  I think some jewelers (David Klass comes to mind) typically wait to post e-rings until they get a confirmation. DK usually hashtags “she said yes” or posts a pic of the proposal/happy couple w the ring. I sent my SO a pic of a DK ring as inspiration pic but still follow DK on Insta, I’m not expecting to see my ring though.

honestlawyer :  lol, you could try unfollowing and then going to a hypnotist and asking them to try to erase the memory.

It’s so interesting you posted this. I took my ring to the jeweler last week to check my ring prongs and ended up setting up his Instagram. Random, I know. But I work in social media marketing and he was clearly struggling with understanding the hows and whys. One of the tips I gave him was to NEVER post engagement jewelry when it’s delivered. In fact, we discussed specifically checking with the purchasing customer before he posts. He’s a local jeweler, so it wouldn’t be hard for him to drop a note when the rings are delivered. 

I’m so sorry your surprise was ruined, but I’m sure you’ll be in awe when you see it in person. And the whole proposal experience will be so overwhelmingly special. I promise any picture or video will not do justice to the beauty of that ring when it’s on your finger. smile

honestlawyer :  oh well. Itll still be so exciting to see it in person yourself and put it on your finger! I agree about not telling your BF.

Bahaha this is exactly what happened to me!!! We had picked out my ring months prior and all I knew was that my then SO was savin up money. I was following MoissaniteCo on instagram and one day, lo and behold, there it was! You will still absolutely be awed when you see it in person. I definitely was! Nothing can compare to having it there IRL on your finger 🙂
