    He chose it. It was nothing I would ever choose for myself and I didn’t love it. I still said yes but I think I’m one of the very few that actually changed my e-ring after the proposal. FH didn’t mind a bit.

    My hubby allowed me to pick out the e-ring setting and he chose the center solitaire by himself.  That way, there was a bit of a surprise for me!  He did great!

    we went & looked together. We started looking at the bigger, not perfect diamonds…because that is what your eye automatically goes to for the price withing your budget. We then saw the best diamond they carry and decided together that we wanted THAT ring…even if the carat was less. So, I would say we chose together for sure.

    We will be picking mine out together in the next few weeks.  I’ve got my eye on a gem that I think he’ll be happy with, but we will choose it together.

    The longer I waited, the more input I gave. I think I started out with “yellow gold please, and a colored diamond” and ended up with giving him a lengthy list of specific Verragios I liked, which diamond shapes I liked and the color diamond I wanted, and let him go from there hahaha. He appreciated the help because going by my other taste in jewelry would not have been helpful (I wear the same simple pearls every day, but didn’t want a pearl, or simple, for my e-ring).

    My fiance did. He totaly suprised me with his proposal and also surprised me by having a ring that he had be hiding in a shoe for a month. He did ask some friends wich jewelers he should visit, but by picking the ring he then followed his gut. I love what he picked!!!

    Errrr I said other. We chose it together. We went to a few jewelry shops and I tried on a few different styles. We found a style we both liked, I told him I wanted a round diamond and he picked out the actual center stone. It was a total joint effort. 🙂

    He did and I love it! The only thing I told him was that I preferred a solitaire over three-stone.

    We window shopped, he picked something, I didn’t like it at all and returned it.  Then I picked one myself.

    My Fiance picked it out all by himself and I’m soo happy with what he chose. He knew exactly what he wanted and that’s what he got. I wouldn’t change my ring for anything else.
