Go have another look at the ring and see if it's an expensive one.
My brother bought his girlfriend a ring but it was just a token gesture to propose, he then took her out to pick the ring she wanted.
Could he be doing that?

I would say I found a box in the cupboard, but didn't open it. Let him hide it again so you can forget about it.
The ring DH got for me is not to my taste- it is far too big and is a single stone. I would have loved a small diamond and some small sapphires. Instead I got a massive solitaire. He is very traditional though, and the ring reminds me so much of him that I have grown to love it. Thank God he got white gold though (he knows I love silver) because if it was yellow gold, I could not have worn it.
I picked my own wedding band though.

I'm not sure it's fair me replying because I chose my ring with DF and I contributed to the cost. To me, we are in this marriage gig together so it's "our" money and it also meant I could have the ring I wanted. I feel very lucky.
Definitely show us the ring (once he's given it). If you really hate it, we might be able to suggest ways to remodel.
I was thinking like other posters...
are you sure it's "the ring" and not just a proposal ring?
Or maybe just a gift ring and not an engagement ring?
But regardless, my vote is don't go back and look. Just wait until it happens. See how you feel then. If it's hideous, decide if the sentimentality overrides the ring or talk sensitively to your DP about it. Very sensitively...

I think I'm jut going to wait and see I don't want to think too much about it anymore and who knows I may have just been originally disappointed that it wasn't the one I imagined but it may be gorgeous and look perfect on my finger!!! Who knows what he has planned but I sure as hell can't wait to find out

Me three here, my DH organised an AMAZING proposal for the same day he made the decision he wanted to marry me - what a man - but because he made the decision quickly he just purchased a token ring and I picked out my own later. Not sure what I would do in your situation OP, I think I'd end up loving it because DH chose it, but it would feel awkward for a while until it grew on me :-)

My best friend and her then boyfriend of 8yrs went out looking at rings. He picked one, and she knew about it. He didn't propose to her for over a year. It killed her knowing it could happen at any moment. They went on holidays, a gorgeous hot balloon ride.. Nope didn't propose.
He proposed in their living room after they watched their favourite television show. That truly surprised her.
It can totally still be a surprise even though you know about the ring.
