Ring surprise or nah i picked it out?

Carine, on January 3, 2023 at 14:56 Posted in Plan a wedding 0 56

Did you help pick out your engagement ring, or was it a complete surprise?


I picked mine out because I am horrible with jewelry, if it cost more than $500 it will for sure belong to the person who finds it. I can't manage to keep anything nice.

Manage to find something that as meaning and matches my sterling silver collection.

    In his words “the usual white gold with diamond cause I thought that’s what engagement rings are supposed to look like” 😂

    Apparently he picked the ring and was waiting for a trip to our special place to propose. I told him I wanted to go look at rings before he had a chance (no idea he had one), so we did. He ended up returning what he had bought and going back for what I picked out lol

    Ring surprise or nah i picked it out? 2I designed mine and he surprised me with a bigger center stone than planned. I am hoping to wear this ring everyday for the rest of my life, so it was important to both of us that it’s something I love that is timeless. He took his sweet time proposing, over a year later than when I submitted the design to the jeweller lol. By that time I had kind of forgotten what it looked like!

    I like to think that we picked out the ring together 😊
    We went to the store together to pick it out. I wanted something simple and relatively inexpensive, but he wanted to make sure that it was a style he liked as well. We ended up with a rose gold set 😄Ring surprise or nah i picked it out? 3

    Haha I don't even remember taking it off, he just finds it. Or I'll forget it in the jewelry cleaner and he'll notice my ring off and ask me where's my ring lol. I am really bad so I am glad it's not expensive.

    If he wanted to get me an expensive ring, I would not reject it, but probably would not wear it very often. Just this weekend he asked me if I lost something, lol I don't even know how it came off my finger or why I would have taken it off. lol

    Mine was a complete surprise! I'm just lucky my fiance knows me really well, and knew what style I would like! He did get opinions from his parents though. 😋

    He actually custom designed my ring. I had never told him anything about what I wanted etc., but it was 1000% perfect. He had taken so many things into consideration that I hadn't even thought about. I LOVE my ring!

    Agreed! I told him I didn't want an expensive ring, it's for some people, just not me.

    Honestly when a guy picks out a ring, it's more of what he sees as a symbol of the two of you put together.

    He may not know my personal ring style 100%, but I don't mind. He went simple and that was the safe bet, haha.

    We picked them out together. We also avoided real diamonds. I am always losing my bling haha. We decided to forgo the expensive sets. Both were approx $500.00.

    It's not the price tag that makes the ring, it's the thought and process that count.

    I rather a non expensive ring, and a small wedding, but a his and her closet.
