    Oh...my...God...that is a horrifying thought.

    I picked out my wife's ring. Nothing custom. I did have the advantage of knowing what her favorite cut was.

    Thanks Eddie. Whatever Jason has in mind... works. Trust me! The best part about him, you tell him what you think, and he throws you 100 things that just get your mind thinking.

    ^i agree. when i took my then girlfriend (now fiance) to nyc for valentines, we did the whole ring shopping to get an idea of what she'd like. she had no idea i was going to pop the question in the next coming months. i think the most important thing to do was to find out the stone shape like hovy said. from there i just got a general idea of what she wanted. i started going to all the boutiques (both in dept stores, malls, and the local jewelry district in downtown). i found a brand that i really liked called tacori. they have some great designs, but for the design i wanted, i think the largest rock that it would fit was a 1.25carat. i bought the rock and basically designed my own ring, using design cues from the tacori different settings. SHE LOVED IT! pm me if you need help.

    exact opposite for me, her older sister is unmarried and basically hated the idea that i was proposing. lets just say i made things right when i popped the question and they all saw the ring.

    If you're not sure you know exactly what she likes, it's probably best to let her pick. It takes some of the surprise out, but is a lifetime of her wearing something she doesn't like worth the 30 seconds of surprise? If you have your heart set on being traditional and having the ring there when you pop the question, then just stick with simple I guess.

    It's a good thing my man took me to choose, because it turns out that he and I have exactly opposite taste in rings...but then we found one we both loved.
