4. Go the dummy way You could mention how romantic it is to propose wth a fake ring, and then pick a real ring together. You can go with the money-saving angle too, if he’s spending that much on a ring, you don’t want him to get it wrong.
5. Make off-hand comments Watching a TV show together and one of the characters has a dreamy ring? Point out how gorgeous it is, “oh look at that rock!”. It works equally well in real life if you spot a girl’s ring on the tube or while out eating.
6. Talk to his mum If you’ve got a good relationship with his mum, it’s worth discussing your ring tastes with her while he’s not about. Start off by mentioning how you like her ring, and asking her how she got proposed to. The rest will come easily. She will most definitely want to help him out and pass on the info.
