I think you can just start by saying “you know when you decide the time is right to propose to me i hope you know im not expecting or wanting anything expensive”

When we talked about getting married I brought up what kind of ring I would like. It made my Fiance feel a lot better knowing that I didn’t want something flashy.

hmm, I don’t think I would bring it up. If he feels ready (mentally and financially) I am sure he would bring up the conversation himself. As you said before, he is a bit stressed, you might not want to add to that.

Aw, well does he have an idea of your tastes, if he wants to pick it out solo? I’m glad you were able to bring the subject up and that it went over well. Nice work! ๐Ÿ™‚

Ah. Feel ya on that one… trying to figure out how to talk to my guy about it too. Although, I have been vocal about how I feel about other people’s rings… so I guess so far he knows that I hate halos and that I really like rose gold! You can always do the old, leave up pictures on the computer screen for him to find trick! ๐Ÿ˜€

I agree with @AugustBride.  It sounds like he’s under enough stress and since you’ve mentioned he didn’t respond to you after you told him about the rings you liked, I might just put it on the back burner until he’s feeling better about his finances.

I actually brought up the conversation just by showing him a ring on my laptop and saying “I came across this…what do you think?” and the conversation kept going after that…especially since the ring you want is like you said not as expensive as he may think…that would be a good convo starter I think. It worked for me!

You  know, we have yet to even talk about the ring! Plenty about marriage but not the ring itself… some helpful tips! Im confident that when the time comes he will ask for help – he was too scared to pick out a pair of diamond stud earrings for me in case he got them wrong!
