I didn't, but he asked for a few pointers since I worked at a high-end jewellery shop for five years. I basically just told him that what colour gold, what shape gem, and that I wanted it low profile instead of set high where it can catch on things.
He was so thoughtful and gave me such a perfect 'meantime' ring that I can't wait to see the actual one.
I showed him pictures of what I like, and told him my ring size, but there was NO way he would go to a jewelry store with me and pick out rings together, or even get sized! He really wanted it to be a surprise. My grandmother left me a diamond so he needed a setting that I would like to go with it. He said that when he went to the jeweler and was ordering the setting, he knew exactly what I wanted and what I would like. He did such a good job!
@mrsbrueske3 How was the proposal ruined? And also, I've never even heard of a blue diamond - sounds beautiful. I'm partial to my blue sapphire, but if I liked diamonds, blue would be the way to go.
