So yes...sometime here in the near future, I'll be getting engaged. I want her to be able to see the ring I have chosen without knowing that it's the one...but I want to be sure she doesn't hate it. So I'm going to bring her to the store and look at a number of rings, with my favorite mixed in. What does everyone think?

It all depends on HER taste. She'll be the one wearing it and looking at it daily. What you have in mind is a very good plan. I did something rather similar to my now wife when I was shopping for her. Listen to everything she says closely. She may like something about this ring but something else about another. The one I had picked out on my own for her was not the one I wound up getting as she fell in love with rings of a completely different style. I think I got across the point I was trying to say.

Good luck and congrats.:thumbsup:

As the poster about me said. If you really want her opinion your idea of mixing in what you like is a good idea. I personally don't like it other than that it's not yellow gold.:huh: I hate yellow gold.

Now that I did the part you wanted I'll go on to say that marriage is a waste of time.:crazy: :thud:

:lookinup: ouch. :laughing:

Take her, watch her face as she browses. You will find the right one without her saying anything. ;)

That depends. I'll need to see pics, a resume, and a financial statement. (Of the girl.)

you guys are brutal...but what did i expect? :laughing:

i do want her to have what she wants...but there's just something kinda messed up about her just getting to pick the ring she wants.

"if you really love me, you'll buy me this"
as opposed to
"wow, you love me so much you bought me that"

How about one of these for an option

I prefer black spinel in white gold or silver. No girlie flowery crap. :laughing:

The most important part is knowing what type of metal she wants and what diamond cut she likes. From those you can cut the selection from infinity to about 10 million rings. :laughing:

I like the ring, but I agree that it hides the diamond a little too much.

I think you should take her shopping and let her try a few rings on that she likes. Don't buy it that day. Go back another day by yourself and pick one of the rings that she loved.

The ring you have chosen is nice but the metal takes away from the diamond. Also, are you planning on getting a wedding band made to go with the ring?? If so, you might want to think ahead and get a ring that can easily have a band made to go with it. Not all engagement rings are made to have a wedding band.

My engagement ring is beautiful and I wanted my wedding band to have a few extra diamonds to go with it. The custom jeweler talked us out of having a band made and I ended up getting a whole new ring for my wedding ring. I am not complaining...its 3 karats of diamonds. :D :D

Shop around. The big retail places will rip you off compared to some of the mom and pop jewelry stores.

Good luck and also pick out your ring while your out shopping with your GF.

Keep us posted. :thumbsup:

Leave it to the newltwed woman to bring the conversation away from Brittney Speared back to the engagement ring. She's barely married and already trying to ruin our fun!
