Did you pick out your engagement ring?

or did he go off and get it without you to surprise you?
What kind did you pick? or..what did you get? ^-^

I picked mine out, and well, I'm glad I did. I think that if he had picked it out I might not have liked it and would be unhappy with the ring I'm going to have on my finger the rest of my life, lol. That's also why he wanted me to pick it out. I got 1/2 carat Leo diamond, princess cut solitaire. ^-^ I like it simple but sparkly.

  • Yes I did because I didn't want a diamond. I know I know I'm weird, I got saphires, because they are my birthstone and I have always loved them.

  • He bought it BEFORE he proposed, and that meant a lot to me. It's a simple solitaire - very traditional and very appropriate. He did well.

  • yep, i picked it out, i was there when he bought it.... we had it custom made, so we had to wait a while. not so romantic, but the ring was done earlier than expected, so i so surprised when he actually proposed. the ring is really hard to explain, but the diamond is a 2.18 princess cut.

  • edna...When I was prego with my first and walking my prego butt around the mall we would always walk by this jewelery store that had the PRETTIEST diamond and sapphire engagement ring! My sister still wants it, lol :P Was very expensive though.

  • I picked mine. He could afford a small diamond excellent cut or big diamond excellent in size. I knew of course he wanted me to have the excellent cut and that 's what I choose.

  • I picked mine. My husband didn't really plan on proposing... it just happened. So we went out looking for a ring after the fact. It really wouldn't have mattered to me if I never got a ring.

  • He did ask me if I wanted him to pick it out or I can do it . I thought since I was the one going to wear it, than I should pick it out.
    It was fun doing it together.
