When you got engaged, who picked out the ring? You or him or both?


DH picked out my ring. We hadn't even been ring shopping. He made a great choice.

Dh did all by himself.  I actually never even talked to him about it or what I would've preferred but he was right on the money.

We didn't do rings when we got married.  We just decided to do it one day.  We had been living together for almost 5 years, and lived in Vegas at the time.  We got rings about a year later.  We picked them together.  We have since upgraded to white gold and black diamonds.

we picked it out together. and by that, i mean, he came along while i picked out the ring. 

i love my husband, but he has no bone in his body that recognizes style, fashion, or female interests. i kind of dread the idea of what he'd pick out by himself. lol!

we both picked out the ring about 4 years before we got married. stolled into a shop one night and I found it, never left my mind, thankfully it was still there (not a trendy style or a major designer that changes styles often) altho in the end, the in-house designer ended up making us one because the price was better.

He picked it then asked if it was okay and told me I could pick a different one if I wanted. Haha. But I loved it and loved the idea of having a beautiful ring that he picked all alone. :)

My Husband did - actually, he designed it himself and had it made.  We had never really gone out ring shopping but here and there he would ask me my opinion on jewelry.  At the time he was working at a gas station making little money, it took him 6 months to pay for the ring so they could start making it.

I gave him some ideas of what I would like, but he picked it out.
