But one humorous wife from Lake Orion, Michigan, took it one step further with not only ensuring her husband got the perfect ring, but also the perfect inscription.
The hilarious engraving simply reads, “Put it back on.”
A photo of the clever ring was trending on the front page of Reddit today with more than 780,000 views in less than 24 hours.
“She’s a prankster. She’s got a great sense of humor,” Dan Tallman, 30, told ABC News of his wife, Amanda. “Some people are commenting that she must be insecure or something, but it’s quite the opposite. People tell us we have the best marriage they’ve ever seen.”
Three children and five years of marriage later, they seem to be doing just fine, and Tallman thinks his ring is just as entertaining now as it was the first time he saw it.
“We ordered the ring at the jeweler and she slipped the lady a note and then when the ring came in I saw it for the first time,” Tallman recalled. “I just laughed. That’s Amanda in nutshell.”
