    Default Engagement rings... do you decide or let her?

    So I have a few ideas, I know what she likes.... kind of. But do you just go and have something done or do you get the OK on it?

    I want her to like it, but I also want to like it hahaha...

    I had Jason design mine to my liking.... I also got the thumbs up from my sister and Mom.

    So I am going in blind, but I know she will love it. As it ruins the whole surprise element if you take her out looking. If you want to be safe, see if you can scout her family to ask her what she would want etc.

    I say NO. She will have to wear it for the rest of her life. Get something you can return and then let her pick what she wants. Just think if she was going to get you a car without you having a say. My 2 cents.

    Raw then how do I use Jwade? hahaha...

    I have taken her out shopping a bit, she has given me advice, and I think if it really turns out that she likes this or that we can change it.

    thats a pretty good idea... but its still not a ring to put on the finger, or just order it from jwade and have him do some simple silver setting just for the proposal?

    what size center is on your ring Jimbo? I like how that ring flows...

    The way I did it was to figure out her favorite diamond shape and favorite setting. The rest was up to me; well sort of.
