Him throwing the ring at her and saying "Here, wear this" is far from cute. I'm not one who think the guy needs to go all out or be super romantic when they propose, but you definately shouldn't just toss it at her and expect her to tear up with joy. I would toss it right back at him and not get engaged to him for a while after that, if ever. It just seems like a "here's your ring now shut up" kinda moment to me.
Better than being proposed to with a joke :P Here is how my proposal went: him: You know the way we were talking about maybe getting married some day? me: Yea? him: And you said "no ring no answer" me: Yea, but you know I was kidding. him: Okay, well, how about this ring? [brings out box, opens it, inside is a napkin ring, the type that look like comically large engagement rings for engagement parties] me: Oh you're so funny, haha! You ass! him: Okay, okay, what about this one then? [gets out proper ring] me: Wha-?
How about you just punch him in the face and say "Feel this. Oh, and the answer was yes."
hold up your middle finger and say "shove this". pawn the ring and buy something pretty.
gotta be careful about selling engagement rings, in some cases the man is entitled to the ring back if the wedding is called off. if the ring was sold (and normally for less than face value) you can be in trouble. no need op to jump the gun and end up in a worse of position than she is.
