    If you can't get the perfect ring before the engagement for, whatever reason, is it alright to use any old ring and then swap them afterwards?

    I think that's totally fine. Especially if it means she gets to put in her input.
    However, you might want to go for a non-engagement looking ring and make it clear when you propose that's it a placeholder for when you buy one together.

    If it is a ring she'll be wearing for a long time before you get the "real" one, make sure you take her taste into consideration and pick something she wouldn't mind wearing.

    Just my opinion, of course.

    You are totally right. It would make good sense to get an ordinary ring and then have her pick out something that she actually loves for the permanent one. Thanks for the advice.

    It can still be an extraordinary ring because it's coming from you to her :) If it's going to be for the short term - Maybe a really nice stackable style band so she could keep that & wear it with her final ring set if & when she wanted to.

    My only concern with using an "ordinary" ring is do you really want to explain mid proposal why you got her something that doesn't appear to be an e-ring? I would think it might be a better idea to get something that could PASS as an e-ring during the proposal so the "magic" is there. Then you can explain after the moment has passed.

    Maybe something along these lines?

    I'd be more inclined to get something that is clearly NOT an engagement ring, just to avoid any confusion (you'd hate for her to be sad because she thought she was getting a 2 ct ring, only to realize that it's faux...). You can let her know when proposing that this obviously isn't the real ring, but that you'd love to get her something that fits your relationship if she would do you the honor...

    ETA: and I like the idea of a small band that she can wear later as a stacking ring. That way it can keep its sentimental value and be worn.

    Fwiw, that's what my husband did, he proposed with a small tiffanys band, and then we went to pick my ering together, I'll give the band to my daughter when she's older, but until then we had it engraved with the time and place when he proposed
