I only gave him my size number, so the ring is a complete surprise 🙂 Idk even if he gave me the ugliest ring ever, I would totally love it, because its his love promise to me 🙂

Well I know he would never buy me an ugly (to me) ring because I’ve told him what I like on a ring and what I don’t like 🙂

I think ring shopping is. SO. FUN!!!

Trying on beautiful baubles?! WHY NOT?!?!?

My man and I do everything together so ring shopping just seemed to be the logical thing. The only thing that sucked about it IS: I have been anxious waiting for the ring to appear on my finger!! When we went shopping I wrongly assumed that just because we picked something out that it would happen soon.. Well… Valentine’s day went by, my birthday went by, our trip to meet my extended family went by, the 4th of July went by…that’s five months and counting. However – maybe now when I get the ring, it will be even sweeter because I’ve been wanting it so badly.

So – I highly recommend it based on the fact that when I get the ring I’ll have a ring I absolutely LOVE, but keep in mind once you pick it out that you will have to wait (in agony) knowing it’s coming, but not knowing when!!


Best of luck!

My ring was a total surprise 🙂  We were together 8.5 years when we got engaged and we never once went ring shopping.  He knew the style I preferred, but I never showed him any.  He went to the jeweler, designed the ring himself and gave me the most perfect ring!  I LOOOOOVE that it was a complete surprise! (The ring AND the engagement!)

My Fiance was all about surprising me until he did some research and realized how expensive diamonds are!! He didn’t want to buy a style that didn’t look good on me, so the next thing I knew we were at Tiffany on 5th Ave trying on engagemnt rings. One of the BEST days of my life! And surprised to see that a lot of styles looked way too overwhelming on my extremely small size 3 ring finger.

I never knew anything about engagement rings, nor did I pay attention to what they looked like, ever! Once fiance was ready, we looked a couple times together. I really didn’t have a preference at first. Than I realized I hated how a round diamond looks on my hand/finger … I actually hate round ones on me.

I saw a cushion cut diamond, which happened to be some type of rare yellow stone, and fell in love. I knew that was what I wanted. So fiance knew that and left the rest up to me. 

Wait, well we went into the jeweler and had my ring finger sized and looked at bands, like the width and I also let him know I liked how it looked with diamonds all the way around. Everything else, he designed himself with the jeweler.
