How did you and/or your partner pick your engagement ring?


Did you find one and say that is the one? Did they surprise you?!
My Fiancé and I went and looked at rings together twice. I've always envisioned what my ring would look like, I just wanted to make sure I liked it on my finger.
After looking at rings I picked out a top 3 but gave him full control to pick anything he wanted. I knew he would only buy something I would love!
He ended up finding a set (with 2 bands) on clearance at People's. It was 50% off and it I love it even more than my "top 3"

This ring is exactly what I have always wanted!!

    Thats amazing he went through all the work of getting your ring custom to compliment your nanas ring! My fingers aren't quite as small as yours (I'm 4.75) but I also wanted to make sure I found a ring that looks right on my finger size!

    My fiancé and I looked at rings back in May once stores finally reopened, but I didn’t find anything that was quite right. It was my first time trying on rings so it did help me figure out what would work on my tiny size 3 finger. I ended up sending him a photo of one I found online, but mentioned it would be really nice if it could have a yellow gold band and platinum setting so it matched my nana’s ring I inherited. Well 8 months later he finally proposed and had the ring custom made as per my specifications 😊

    My fiancé picked my ring along with the wedding band. He asked me a few weeks before what style of ring I liked, I just told him 1 that I absolutely saw too much and do not like. So he was aware of that. Haha!!


    So I was surprised of the engagement and ring the day of. Was so beautiful and very different for me. I love it! 💕😍

    I know I was so happy when he told me it had his grandmas diamonds in it. I got very close to these grandparents, and his grandpa almost cried when he saw the ring. Smiley heart

    My fiancé and I went ring shopping on valentine's day of 2021. I was showing him ideas of what I liked, with no idea he had any intention of proposing anytime soon. But I guess after like 3 months of me showing him ideas of what I liked in pictures he decided to do it as a date. We had a blast and went to every store in West Edmonton Mall and looked and tried on upwards to 75 rings. Like others, I picked a top 5 set of rings I loved but at the last store we went too, I fell head over heels in love with a limited edition ring at Spence Diamonds

    I always envisioned myself with a pear or oval shaped ring with a pave band and a halo, just never thought I would be obsessed with cluster diamonds instead of one individual diamond sitting in a halo.

    Although I was aware of which ring he would buy (like my reaction was unlike any other) I was still so happy and in love with my ring. Even to this day.

    I had shown my FH a few pictures of what I wanted. All I knew is I didn't want a traditional ring, I like vintage/retro vibes and wanted a colored stone. He went to a local jeweler and got a custom ring made. He included some of his late grandma's diamonds from one of her rings too which just made it that much more special. It is honestly everything I ever wanted.

    My fiance organically purchased a wedding band set with three blue stones. We went to my grandmas for a visit oit of town and she asked him if he has a ring set.... he took one look at them and said "these are the ones". My engagement ring and wedding band were my great grandma's rings. Truly blessed and grateful ❤

    Such a unique ring! It's so nice having a custom ring! My ring also needed to be sized from a 7 to a 4.75!

    My husband told me to leave pictures on our computer of what I like then months later told me I need to put them back because he forgot.... (Lies). He knew I wanted a custom made ring just for me, not one out of a cabinet that everyone's tried on. He did so well 😍😍 the diamond is even Israeli, as is my family. Only issue was he took a ring off my dresser thinking it'd be the right size but the ones laying there are cheap rings that are standard size 7 ish. I'm a 4.75 so.... That cost a bit to resize and took a while as well 😆.

    It's beautiful! I didn't even know hidden halos were a thing until after I got my ring! My "travel" ring is going to have a hidden halo so I can enjoy one a little bit!

    Thank you! It was something that most jewelry stores didn't have so I had to get it custom done. Even she was surprised by it Smiley smile

    It's always good to try on rings IMO! My friend hated what she thought she wanted! The ring you picked is STUNNING! I love the hidden halo!

    She didn't pick the ring but I took her to a few chain stores at the mall a few times. It wasn't so much to find out what she liked but to plant the fake idea into her head that I sucked at ring shopping. I kept suggesting some terrible designs that made her really question me Smiley xd It was all part of an elaborate plan to surprise her for the proposal lol.

    She also mentioned how she liked certain designs that I wasn't so sure about. They weren't necessarily bad but I thought it wasn't something that suited her. Taking her ring shopping helped validate my gut feelings because she was able to try on things and see it wasn't as nice on her as she thought it would be.

    Here's the ring I ended up getting her.

    Surprisingly enough my fiancé picked my ring without me ever showing him what I liked. All he really asked was my ring size and I gave him one of my rings so he had the correct sizing.


    When he started asking me about rings, I was a little nervous since I felt he was a little clueless when it came to rings and diamonds but he did so perfect and it is my dream ring without him even knowing.When he proposed I couldn’t believe he picked out the exact ring I always envisioned.
    It’s perfect for me, simple and timeless.

    Absolutely! My ring is actually being fixed (as the diamond came a tiny bit loose after a dog jumped on me), so I just chucked this one on haha

    Beautiful! My fiancé actually designed my ring. I had emailed him pictures of the style I liked and he actually went in and got some help and he did an amazing job! Our vacation that he planned on asking me, the ring wasn’t ready, so he bought a $24 ring off Amazon (quite nice actually haha, 1st Let's talk engagement Rings!! 17

    picture attached) to propose with and then when we got back, went and picked up the ring together. It now has a great story attached to the day Smiley smile second picture is my actual ring !Let's talk engagement Rings!! 18

    That must have been so much fun designing your own bands! A classic solitaire looks good with soo many styles of bands!

    FH knew that I like a simpler type of solitaire ring and we both like the white gold rather than the yellow. He bought the ring himself but when it came to the wedding bands we went together and designed our own.
