I think five years is long enough. I'm going to propose on a trip to France next month. I have tenatively been looking for rings, but it struck me that I have 0 idea of what size finger she has. How did you married guys figure out what ring size your gf finger was without her knowing?
Also if you had a relatively modest budget, and a minute chance of rejection would you buy a cheap engagement ring, and splurge on the wedding ring. Or go full throttle on the engagement ring and get a modest wedding ring. She has said in the past that she doesn't want a blood diamond so I am relatively good because I can shop manufactured, or vintage jewelry. My gf is very active and probably prefer a plain band for day to day use, so a 20 carat ring would be a expensive paper weight.
Does anyone know a good place to shop for estate jewels, or second hand rings?
So many questions but I hope she is the one. Wish me luck!
