It’s uber obvious, and not subtle at all to me. If you think that your man wouldn’t be bothered about it, then by all means go ahead.

I’d suggest printing out a copy of the webpage where you found it, and simply say to him that you like this particular ring. It would invite conversation, and he may have some interesting things to say or to ask you.

 

Good luck

I think that’s a great idea! In fact, I think I’ll try it.

As long as you think manfriend can afford it, do it. If it is your dream ring but most likely financially out of reach for him, he will be demoralized. He might feel like he shouldnt pop the question until he can give you what you want. Or he might feel he can never give that to you…so again, depending on the ring (and I dont know cuz you didn’t share…please post!! I love looking at other E Rings) I think it is a good idea.

You know, boys don’t do subtle. Just sit him down and show him the ring and say that for when the time is right, you would like him to know you love this one.

@CupcakeLove:  

Agreed. I think he would appreciate your honesty and maturity this way.

lovely picture. I have learned from waiting quite awhile that boys do not do subtle. its a touchy subject, but its usually easier if you discuss marriage, then ask if he would like to see some rings when the time is right. 

I sent my SO pictures or rings like 1.5 yrs ago. he was not ready so he just disregarded it. so ya. direct is best.

Well done, and good for you sending an email and being straightforward; but de-emphasizing pressure. Particularly since the ring you love isn’t necessarily what he might’ve envisioned.

@MissBettsy:  AHAHAHAH!!! That’s awesome! I really like the ring, very classy and sweet! He spoiled your plan but he’s very nice to sit and chat with you! 

I’m just going to say I’m jealous you live in NZ, very very jealous. I don’t care if its 20 degrees out. 🙂
