Should guy surprise his sweetheart with the ring without doing the shopping together? I personally think that each couple should have a budget in mind, shop together and let the guy to present the ring with his creative and surprise proposal.
Most couples choose to shop engagement ring together these days. Buying an engagement ring can be a huge investment for some guys...some say the ring should worth guy's two-month salary. Let us treat this as a guideline to give an idea to guys where they can start from...but it should not be a standard for all guys. Furthermore, you wouldn't want to carry debts through your newly wed life. It is not a good idea to start a new life together either.
Even though girl has a say to choosing the ring that she likes, she shall choose the ring within the budget that her man can afford to pay. Therefore, it is very important for a couple to discuss the budget for the engagement ring together. Then, do some research and educate themselves before visiting the jewelry shops, especially when they are looking for a diamond engagement ring. You want to get the most out of your budgeted investment.
Once the budget is set and bought the ring, it is up to the guy to plan the surprise proposal to his future wife!
