You're only going to know that after talking about it. I had intended to buy a white gold or platinum ring, but DF wanted yellow gold because it would match the rest of her jewelry. (also, she's going to use her grandmother's wedding band which is yellow gold) I wouldn't have known that if I went out on my own.

Thanks for your thoughts, I am getting a different perspective, I did not think of the possibility her having heirloom jewelry. You are right. But part of me says I ask her than buy a ring she wants, part of me says it would be better if I bought it and surprise her... May be I should not worry too much about it.

BTW how easy/difficult was it to shop for a ring together? How about the cost, did you decide on a limit, or did you just look for a ring she liked?

I've read that the online stores supposed to give better quality diamond for the money. They can afford to do that since they do not have to pay huge rent for space in mall etc. But I prefer dealing with a store and people face to face. OK may be I'll help pay part of their salary that month but I get something in return, right?
