What would you do with this much diamond?
Wouldn't that be nice.
But really, let's talk about diamonds. Would you, or have you, ever discussed engagement ring details with your man? Some women say this little chat is a must--they don't want to get stuck wearing and ugly ring for ever. And plenty of other ladies go ring shopping with their guys and pick out their diamond.
I stand on the other side of this debate. Picking out my own ring would have take away so much of the excitement and surprise of getting engaged. Sure, right before it happened I had my suspicions. There were mysterious phone calls and weekends we just had to spend apart. And I thought that was exciting. If I knew there was a ring tucked away somewhere, I think I would have felt pretty impatient and some of the magic would have been lost. We may have talked a little bit about the style of the ring, but I didn't feel any pressure to hint strongly about what I wanted. That's because I didn't really know what I wanted and I knew that Keith would pick out something that I would like, too. (And he did!)
Where do you stand? Who picked out their ring? And who made suggestions about what they wanted? Is anyone willing to let their man do the shopping alone, or am I the only one?
