    Fiance and I picked together after I narrowed down what I liked. He didnt like pears (I did early on but later decided against)

    My two final choices were a cushion solitaire with plain white gold split shank band or a pave band with cushion solitaire. I was leaning towards the plain band for practicle reasons – im not a jewelry person and worried about losing stones or damaging it. He pushed me to get the pave band bc I think he knew I liked that look better and wanted me to be happy.

    I basically designed my ring on my own (he came with me to pick out the stone), but he said that he would have probably just gotten me a round solitaire to be on the safe side.  He was actually thrilled that I wanted to be involved because he is not a jewelry guy and was too nervous.

    Mine is a solitaire cushion cut on a white gold cathedral setting and I added in hidden rubies (his birthstone!) in the setting, but I would have been fine with a round solitaire, but I love the rubies because they make me think of him.

    catqueen92 :  My Fiance’ got me a beautiful princess cut diamond, and I wouldn’t have it any other way! I knew I didn’t want to help pick out my ring since I wanted it to be something he picked out all on his own, feels more special to me.

    My husband chose my ringW by himself. We’d talked about styles and I said I’d prefer a coloured stone to a solitaire diamond, and he chose a ruby as red is my favourite colour. I love Medieval/Tudor history so he chose a ring that he thought reflected that style. Total surprise, and he said when he saw it online he knew it was the one. ♥️

    My FH picked out my ring all by himself. He knew I wanted rose gold, but that was all I said. I think he did an AMAZING job and I couldn’t have picked anything better. The center stone is a 1.31 carat lab diamond and it’s set in 14K rose gold with accent natural diamonds. Basically he nailed it and I could not be happier 🙂

    ETA: It meant a lot to him to pick it out himself. He’s very traditional.

    flybynight2020 :  That ring is gorgeous! 

    And my husband didn’t pick my ring by himself. But I think it’s interesting that most are solitaires. I think it’s because they’re a safe bet and they’re always “in style” so to speak.

    catqueen92 :  Yes, the ruby is only tiny; just a dot on the inside of the ring, but Fiance liked the sentiment too I guess! We had never discussed rings or anything though Fiance knows my general taste in jewellery as he’s bought me other things before. I was actually a bit taken aback by the ring as its bigger and a bit more ‘blingy’ than I would probably have chosen for myself. He says he knew that, but wanted to buy something like my ring so that I knew he meant it when he proposed ;).
