Hey bees, I want hear from those of you whose men picked out your ring all by themselves!
Did you get something you expected??
Were you surprised??
I have told my SO what I like but you really don’t know how much these boys take on board!!
I know he has bought it and I can’t wait to see what it is because… Well, I just have no idea!! (Although I’m sure whatever it is, if he loves it, then I will love it too :D)

Mine did! We had a conversation when we were really young (probably 16 or 17) about what kind of engagement rings I liked because his best friend’s older sister had just gotten engaged. He was curious what kind of rings “girls” liked. I had told him I wanted white gold or platinum and a princess cut diamond and that is exactly what I got a few years later! I was surprised that he had remembered that long and it is definitely very much what I wanted.

Mine picked mine out himself. Well, with some guidance. I showed him pictures of rings I liked (mostly rings with side stones in the band), and basically said I didnt really like a high setting and the rest was up to him. He pretty much nailed it. I wasnt sure what to expect since he’s very, ummm frugal, and thinks that rings and stuff are a waste of money. I was almost certain he wouldnt go all out like he did, so I was very surprised.

He did a GREAT job! I love it! All i told him was a round diamond. The main stone is from his grandmothers ring, all the others are from his moms ring, so very meaningfull to me, that they except me enough to give me family diamonds 🙂 He tried to surprise me with the proposal, but i knew ahead of time, but had no idea what the ring looked like. Here it is with out the band (i have just a plain white gold band):
(obviously…we also have our ring finger tattooed with our wedding date in roman numerals 10/29/11)

Mine did ALL by himself… I really had NO clue he was going to propose. I didn’t even mentionned anything to him about the fact that I liked sets… and he totally got me a set, I love it!!!
Here is my set, can’t wait to wear it all the time…

Mine made mine just after he proposed, I had no idea what he was designing and didn’t see it until it was all done. I LOVE IT!

Mine did! No one knew he’d bought it until he proposed! Not his parents, mine, our siblings, friends, NO ONE! He got just what I wanted! He knew I wanted princess cut and I guess the guy kept trying to talk him into something else and he was like ‘Listen, the only I think I know she wants is princess cut!’
Here she is:

Mr. Hedgie had some ideas of what kinds of things I would like in a ring from basic converstations but in the end he 100% picked out the ring on his own and I wouldn’t have had it any other way! He knows me so well and it is so perfect for me!

Fi picked mine all by himself, sort of. He knew I don’t like yellow gold and he was there once I talked to a girl about how I’m not a big rock girl. He surprisingly picked a setting I saw online once and loved, since my sister doesn’t know about the engagement yet I guess he didn’t asked and was just lucky enough to picked one of my top 3 choices.
I’m inloved with princess and marquise cut, this was one of the two settings that made me want a round cut stone. If I had picked mine I’d have gone with a blue sapphire instead of a diamond. I love it and I wouldn’t change it even if I have a chance, and the fact that he picked this for me makes it even more special.

ok what does SO mean? my fiance picked out out mine by himself but we looked at rings online before.
The ring i got is not exactly like the ones i was looking at but i love it still!

my husband picked mine also, i kept saying i wanted a classic tiffany solitare in yellow gold and wouldnt look at anything else. we were outside the store on buying day and he put his hands on my face and moved my head (because i kept saying no) and said “what about that one” and i said “ohhh, thats nice”.
the ring we bought has a diamond band with a solitare but until that moment i kept saying i didnt want to look at anything other than a plain band

Mine did! He knew I wanted white gold…and that was pretty much the only stipulation. He got me a princess cute that was kite set, and I absolutely love it! I love knowing that he took the time to get me something a bit “different” too!

my fiance did! i didn’t think he would propose for another year or two, but we browsed online so he knew what i liked. i wanted white gold with an “interesting band”- so diamonds in the band with some sort of irregular shape or a split shank. i also wanted a matching wedding band that would sit flush with the e-ring.
he picked this out, as well as a split shank one, but ultimately went with this… and i’m so glad he did!
