DH gave me a budget. I picked out the setting and we picked a stone together. I’m really glad I was part of the process as I know he also would have picked something completely different.

We discussed a budget, then I basically did the rest.  I did want him involved to approve of what he was spending his money on, so he came with me once i found the stone.  He didn’t didn’t really care about the design of the setting because it is very plain and simple (and perfect for me!) and the cost was minimal compared to the stone.

I found a ring I loved online and showed him. We never discussed a budget, but I told him I wanted a moissanite. He went and checked out the ring himself in person and bought it!

Together, but really it was more me driving the process. We set the budget together and paid for it together.

I picked out my ring. I wouldn’t have been happy if someone else was making that decision for me. He just wanted me to be happy with what I got. It worked out well for us.

He picked it entirely himself. 

 

I wanted it to be a surprise and I wanted to feel like it really came from him, instead of something I picked for myself. Also, I know that if I had picked it out I would’ve stressed myself over trying to decide on something, and maybe would have had some ring regret after by feeling like I should’ve picked something different. But since he gave it to me and it’s gorgeous, I absolutely love it the way it is and couldn’t imagine wanting anything else.

My husband didn’t even have a ring when he proposed. He said he wanted me to pick it out. He was afraid of getting something I wouldn’t like, which probably would have happened. (He had no experience buying diamonds/jewelry, etc)

He said I didn’t have a budget so I started shopping online. Picked out a beautiful diamond and setting from James Allen.

He picked the ring. It was important to him. He didn’t even want to go looking at rings together beforehand–although in retrospect I wish I’d pushed him a little harder on that. He did ask me what I wanted in a ring, but I think that what I would have said would have been different had I spent some time trying on rings in shops beforehand. Anyway, ultimately I like, but don’t love, my ring, but I DO love what it represents, and I am happy with it. I know I’m very lucky.

We went shopping together and I picked 3 settings that I really loved. He made the final choice and picked out the center stone on his own.

We discussed budget, though he did choose to go a bit over so he could get me a ring he knew I would love.

We sat down with a jeweler and designed a ring together.

We went together to a jeweler we found a year prior and I picked it out! He had a budget and we tried to get as close as we could to it. We went a little over the budget, but not too much, and he was fine with it.

I told my Fiance that when the time came, I wanted to choose my ring. A few months ago we sat down and I showed him my favorite and also some others I liked. I wanted him to like whatever I got. In the end he went with my favorite and I’m very happy he did.

I’ve had it both ways.  My exH took some of my hints that I gave him and bought me a lovely ring.  But I actually enjoyed it more this time around with SO because it was fun to do it together.

Fi shared his budget and we collaborated from there.
