If he’s not ready suggesting it could do more harm than good. There will be other deals to be had!

I did. I saw my perfect engagement ring on sale back in October on MoissaniteCo.com. I wavered on whether I should tell my SO or not, but I did. He put it on layaway and now I’m anxiously patiently waiting for him to pop the question. 

I say tell him about it! I’m a sucker for a sale

ETA: By telling him you at least put the option out there, but he gets to choose whether or not to get it.

@musician32992:  Oh. Well maybe not the best idea to bring it up then? IDK, I mean you’re the only one who might have a clue to how your SO will react. You don’t think you guys will ever get engaged/married or he won’t actually propose?

@musician32992:  Is that ok with you? Do you want a romantic/thoughtful proposal? If he says he doesn’t want to be engaged/married until he’s 26 I wouldn’t bring up this ring, since it is 3 years away. I know it’s really hard to keep quiet on getting engaged but I’ve been trying to not bring it up as much, and I feel like I don’t ruin the mood as often since it makes me upset thinking that it’s not coming soon lol. How often do you guys talk about it?

@FutureMrsJohnson_:  +1

If he seriously discussed engagement as happening in the near future (i.e. this calendar year), I would bring it up especially if he’s price conscious/frugal with his money. The worst that he would do is not take advantage of the sale. 

However, if it’s in the next few years and not this one, I wouldn’t bring it up. Just save the pic of the ring for future reference so you know what to look for should you still like that style down the road.

@musician32992:  Hmm. Maybe try not to talk about it for as long as possible (like a month lol) and then bring it up calmly and express how you’re feeling – if you haven’t done so before – that he keeps saying conflicting things and you just want to know where you both stand. My SO does that sometimes too. Like he said he wants to be married by 25, he’s 24 now. But then he was surprised when I said I wanted to get married in Fall 2014 (even though we had talked about it before) when HE’LL BE 25! Boys are frustrating sometimes lol.

Maybe he’s saying different things so you’re surprised when it actually does happen?

@musician32992:  To be perfectly honest, if you’re in school and he just started working, it might not make sense financially for him to get you a ring (even if it’s on sale). I’m sure he has to bone up his savings and figure things out financially now that he’s actually making a salary for the first time.

Additionally, if he’s not ready to be engaged yet, it definitely does not make sense for him to get you a ring.

I understand how you feel with the whole being ready while he is not ready thing (I said I love you to my Boyfriend or Best Friend before he was ready to say it back to me) and I know how frustrating it is, but at the same time you either have to wait for him to be ready without trying to get him to move faster or decide that this isn’t working for you. Or talk to him, but you did that already and he gave you your answer.

@musician32992:  He keeps wavering on when he wants to get engaged and says that he just tells me a date to shut me up. To be perfectly honest, I doubt I’ll ever get a proposal. …He’s said something to the effect that he doesn’t want to be engaged or married before 26. He’s 23. And honestly, I feel like his idea of a proposal is tossing the ring box at me and saying, ‘Here you go, it’s what you’ve been bitching about for three years.’ “

Based on this, I think you have more important things to worry about than the ring you like being on sale.
