Should You Go Ring Shopping Together?

I knew it was coming, but when Conor asked what I wanted my ring to look like, it didn’t really feel real. And my answer of “round or cushion with a plain or diamond band–just surprise me and I’ll say yes!” didn’t do it for him.

I can’t blame the guy for wanting to look at rings together since I’m really indecisive and have a lot of opinions. So we looked at rings together and the whole process was exciting and a little surreal. In the end, I didn’t feel pulled toward one shape vs the other, and shocker–actually ended up liking princess cut making things even more confusing.

The decision was finally made and even though I knew it would be round with a plain band and actually saw the proposal coming, I was still so surprised. I’m glad I knew I’d love it but there’s that part of me that loves the idea of being surprised as long as it didn’t result in a Carrie/Aidan situation.

Did you or would you go ring shopping together? What’s your favorite engagement ring style?
