pinkclown68 :  Given that the black box is stamped Tiffany & Co on the inside of the lid, I am sure you can forego the blue box until after she has the ring on her finger.

pinkclown68 :  my opinion? You waaay overpaid for that diamond. You paid for a blue cardboard box. You could have gotten a 1.5ct for that same price, minus the blue box. So since that blue box is what you paid for, you might as well propose with it.

Seeing that box wouldn’t make MY heart race, though…unless you mean making me realize that you’re proposing a future with someone who gets sucked in by merchandising and cares more about a label than the actual product. That might make my heart race from anxiety

My Fiance had taken the ring out and kept it in his breast pocket since he thought the box was too bulky for him to hide anywhere on him. That was completely fine with me! Seeing him sheepishly pull it out of his shirt pocket was the cutest thing and that’s a memory that’ll stick with me forever.

TBH- I know he had a box but I don’t remember it. She will focus on you and the pretty ring.

Sounds like a gorgeous ring! My engagement ring is from tiffanys and we picked it out together after my husband proposed. I struggled with the price even though my husband had the money put aside and really wanted to get me a ring i loved. I know it was relatively expensive (compared to other jewellers despite being on the cheaper end of the spectrum in Tiffany) but we were buying in a different country than where we live and were planning to move to another (3rd country) in the near future. The customer service has been fab, always so pleasant when I bring the ring in to be checked/cleaned (for free) no matter where in the world I am (which was important to me for peace of mind) And my ring is so dainty and beautiful. I have the legacy and I think the craftsmanship of the setting is gorgeous compared to other similar styles I’ve seen. The diamond is sparklier than similar styles too in my opinion. I’ve had absolutely no problems with the setting, despite never really taking it off (touch wood). So for me, I couldn’t be happier with my ring and I’m glad we (he!) splashed out. It makes me happy every time I look at it and I remember the joy and excitement we experienced celebrating our engagement, and I’ll wear it forever. So the price was definitely worth it for us. 

Regarding the blue box – I knew he had the ring and I had picked it out so I was looking forward to opening that ribbon, however my husband beat me to it when he ‘officially’ proposed that evening in our room!! He felt it took away from the moment of opening the velvet box too! Honestly, I was just overwhelmed with happiness and even though I would’ve liked to open the ribbon, it didn’t really matter. If I hadn’t known about the box (and hadn’t watch them pack it up!) I wouldn’t have minded. I think whichever you decide will be fine because it’s more about the engagement in my opinion but if she’s a girl who enjoys sentimental things, pretty wrapping and ribbons etc (I am!) or if she’s into designer things (im not really) then leave the blue box on, but if not, just use the velvet box. 

Regardless of anything else, this is such a special happy time, I wish you both all the love and happiness in the future! Sorry for the essay! And I hope she loves the ring and all that it represents as I love mine!

ilovesophia :  my opinion? You come off as judgmental and negative in 95% of the posts I’ve stumbled on. I’m unsure if you’re generally an unhappy or cynical person or it’s simply some ugly green monster that gets you in these threads but bless your heart. You need a trip to Disney World and a glass of wine.

I’d leave the box and go with a classic proposal. otherwise you’ll have to deal with the box which may detract from the moment.

Sounds like a beautiful ring.But I do have to admit, that little blue box does wonders to a girls’ heart!

Leave it in the blue box. The 2nd she sees it she’ll know what it is and where it’s from. That, and the extra minute it will take to unwrap it will add to the emotion of the moment.

pinkclown68 :  novo is a proprietary cut but I would have gone G VS2 xxx unless you’re crazy neurotic and need a mind clean diamond so clean it’s practically bleached. Do you may have gone bigger by going down on clarity and color

But!

At the end of the day if she’s not a size queen your ring is plenty baller.

I’d take it out of the blue box, the black box still says tiffany & co inside and like you said you don’t want to distract from the proposal itself. Plus it would be quite hard to fit it in your pocket. I find it incredibly sweet that your concenered about little details like this, Goodluck and be sure to post pictures after the proposal!

I would leave it completely wrapped in the blue box with ribbon, and present it like a gift. Then after she opens the ribbon and starts to pull out the inner velvet box, get down on one knee. That way she’ll get the best of both worlds- a classic proposal and the untying of the Tiffany’s ribbon.
