The tradition of presenting an engagement ring at the proposal itself is thought to have been established when Archduke Maximilian presented a diamond ring to his betrothed in 1477. And whilst many women today may hope to be shown a ring at the same time as accepting your proposal, many may also prefer to have some input into the ring which they can hope to wear for the rest of their lives.
