Who chose your engagement ring?

I have a funny story to go along with mine. We went to Florida for my 37th birthday and stopped into a jewelry store. DH and the jeweler were taken aback at my lack of interest in looking at rings. The jeweler even remarked that maybe I didn't want to get married! I explained that I am traditional in this aspect, wanted to be surprised and if he got me a piece of twine I would have been estatic! So on a weekend getaway, we stopped in to see a jewelry store and I DH chose my piece of heaven!


Okay so who picked out your ring?

Good thread TRessy!


DH picked out a ring for me and when he took me to get it I hated it! I felt like he didnt know me at all! I wanted something big and fabulous since it was my second marriage and last one! So we wound up going to a private jeweler and he showed DH some rings he had just made and wala he chose one! Best choice because I love her!

He did - and he did beautifully! It's honestly the exact ring I would choose. :)

I did -  we were in a jewelry store and I saw it and pointed it out, and he said, "maybe you should try that on" and it fit perfectly, so we took it home.  16 years later I still love it!

I had showed him a ring a few years back that I liked so he knew the style. He picked the actual e-ring himself! I love my ring!!

I love reading these stories!


DH chose my ring. He would randomly show me pictures of all different styles to feel me out. But in the end it was him and he did an amazing job, probably better than I would have done myself! And he certainly spoiled me!

We were out shopping and DH brought me into a really nice jewelry store to get his (very fancy) watch cleaned and I was looking around at the different jewelry. He brought me to the rings and asked me which ones I liked the most. I looked at a few and the sales girl came and asked me if I wanted to see them out of the case. DH said yes and I happily obliged. I narrowed it down to  about 3 that I loved one was crazy big and very fancy but not really my style and WAY out of price range even in a fantasy lol  but there was one that just kept grabbing my attention. I loved the unique shape and the style of it. It was nicer than anything I had every seen and I loved it. I told him that was the one and the sales rep said to him “oh my god, I can’t believe you picked the right one” then slapped her hand against her mouth. He had been in the day before and spent about 3 hours looking at all the rings and trying to decide which one to get for me and that was the one he loved the most and came really close to buying it. I guess technically I chose it but if he had gone with his gut then he would have lol. We 100% chose it together. Which is how we make all our decisions. So kinda perfect!!!

He did...for the most part.  A few months before he proposed we talked about rings and all I said was that I liked the 3 stone rings best.  That's what I got :)  We had never gone and looked at rings though.
