Trying to pick out the right ring for my budget has gotten extremely difficult. I was wondering if anyone bought the ring WITH your gf before proposal and then you proposed? A couple of my co-workers had this idea. Although she'll know the proposal is coming, at least she won't know when and how. She has told me what she wanted but the specifications she wants needs to be custom made by a jeweler like Steven/Leon/Maytal. This means that there is no return policy for these rings. I am worried if she doesn't like the ring, it will be impossible to exchange for the right one.
