(Closed) What prompted you to have input in picking your e-ring?

    He asked me directly to get involved.

    We have combined finances so any purchase that large needs to be a shared decision.

    I had very specific tastes/hopes for my ring

    I had cultural or family requirements that impacted what the ring should look like.

    There was a family stone/ring available on my side that he didn't know about.

    I wanted something outside what would be considered a traditional e-ring so he'd never have guessed.

    He proposed without a ring so we picked as an engaged couple.

    When he first started talking about getting engaged, I knew that we’d have a big wedding os I’d need to plan ahead because venues and vendors book up quickly in the city. So part of that was needing to know what type of ring I wanted. My taste is very specific, right down to the smallest detail on the ring, so I knew that I had to be involved because of that.

    He proposed without one actually.  My family had let slip what he was doing for a proposal (a whole different story in itself).  And we had already planned on looking at rings in a few weeks.  When he found out I found out early he just proposed without one, so I was still really suprised.

    We picked one out really recently.  He says he loves my ring and that it suits me well, but he’s pretty sure that’s not what he would have picked. But as he says “you’re the one wearing it forever, I want you to have something you LOVE”.

    I”m a control freak and super picky about anything I wear – including jewelry! I totally sent him pictures and told him what I liked (i.e. thin band, pave, 6 prongs, round) and the only thing I left for him to decide was the actual specs of the stone itself!

    I know some girls care little about the style, and are maybe not so picky – but I would have been devastated if he spent so much money on a piece that I didn’t love!

    He wanted to know what styles I was interested in, so we looked together and then he wanted something more traditional so we had to work together to find a compromise!

    We knew we wanted to get married, so with that in mind the conversation started with shared financial goals and how we would tackle our debt. How he was going to pay for a ring became part of the conversation, which then turned into how much should he spend, which turned into what can be purchased at that price point. From there we did some shopping and picked one together.
