    I voted other because we kind of ran across my ring.  We were looking at rings at an antique jewlery store when I pointed out the one I’m now wearing.  I tried it on, we talked with the sales lady a little more then we left.  I must of had a look on my face because my Fiance looked at me, smiled and said, “thats the one isn’t it?”  I just smiled and nodded.  He handed me the car keys and walked back to the sales lady and I made a sneaky phone call to my mom when I got to the car.

    My Fiance had me pick three rings and then from there he picked and surprised me- I knew we’d get engaged but had no IDEa when. he told me the price range to look in. To this day i

    Dont know the specs of my diamond. I didn’t want to ask, I thought it seemed rude. I know it’s very clear and sparkly and 1 cT. Probably around F in color. 

    Thatsrs bit rude what OPs jeweler friend said… Maybe she just needs to learn how to be softer in making statements..

    He took me to look at rings a few months ago.  He had picked out two and had the lady bring them out to me.(without me knowing)  Not to sound rude, but they just weren’t my style. Luckily he is very open minded and let me pick what I wanted  I saved my choice and was presented with it about 2 months later. 🙂  Funny thing is that it ended up being less expensive then what he picked for me!  But it was just totally “me.”

    Since my roommate at the time was looking at rings so she forced me to look at them with her.  I showed my fiance so he’d have ideas of what I wanted.  The design and size were what I wanted but he decided he wanted a tradional diamond instead of a colored diamond.

    I had zero say in my ring. But I keep all our important documents so Darling Husband gave me the GIA certificate for my diamond and I hopped on Blue Nile to find out the rough price. I also googled around to figure out the rough price of my setting. haha. Darling Husband has never admitted to me exactly how much he paid, but I have a good guess. Why did I HAVE to know? I am just curious like that. And I was pretty blown away at the ring my Darling Husband had picked out. It was nothing I had ever seen before so I was generaly curious about it.
