    Have you considered showing him your options and letting him choose? I wanted Tom's to be a surprise, but in the end am glad that I showed him the catalog of Irish bands, b/c he picked a totally different one than my top three -- and he LOVES his ring!!
    Yes! I've tried so hard to get him to decide.
    Ultimately though I get the best of both worlds. I looked through stuff with him to get a sense of his style. Then I picked about 20 options and he narrowed down to about 6. Now of the 6 I picked 4 and am narrowing it down further.
    He honestly says he's ok with any of them.

    So in a way he gets a surprise, because he doesn't know which one I'm going to pick!

    I think I've made up my mind...
    I think it's gonna be #3!!! :)

    Going to call my aunttomorrow to see if I can send it to her house as we'll be down near Princeton next weekend. Maybe that way I can get free shipping :)

    Thanks for all your help, ladies!

      I like the 4th ring, but I am partial to the white gold. You mentioned that he likes 2 colours too though. IF the yellow gold/white gold is a no go, I choose ring #2.

            I really like the 2nd one (choice B). It's very sleek and classic. It'll never go out of style.

                I'm SUPER excite

                I just bought it online via Pompeii3 Jewelry .

                They have great prices. Let's hope that the quality is excellent too :)

                With the price of gold going steadily up, rings in town were really $$$. I'm an online shopper now!

                  Woohoo, congrats Andrea!!

                  On another note, I'm really glad you posted these pics because Martin is thinking he wants to do away with the first ring he got and get something more unique (I tried to tell him this in the beginning, but you know guys... ). He saw this thread and really likes the flat edge step cut, so thanks for the suggestion! :)

                    Thanks Jaime!
                    That was actually my favorite in the very beginning, but Kev wasn't super into it. I think it's beautiful!

                      So, the ring arrived in the mail while we were in NYC and then we had Canada Day (PO was closed), so I picked it up on Wednesday and rushed home to FI to get him to try it on!

                      It was about $205 after tax, then $10 in shipping and $30 in duties. Not bad for 14K gold men's ring! And they even had it in 1/4 sizes, so I got his exact size!

                      FI didn't want to see it - he wants it to be a surprise, so I put it on him and took pics with him closing his eyes. He's so silly!

                      It's great quality and I'm so happy with it!!!
