If you’re picking an engagement ring for your significant other for a surprise proposal, it can be a daunting task knowing which ring is the right one. There’s so much to consider: the type of stone, the cut, the design of the band, whether it be gold, rose gold, platinum, silver, and much more. Here are a few tips and tricks to ensure that you’re on the right track when it comes to picking the best ring to pop the question.
ASK HER FRIENDS
Chances are, they have probably spoken about this and her friends are going to know about these kinds of things. Give her best friend a call and ask if there are any particular styles or designs that your partner has mentioned that suit her taste. Then pop by the jeweller and check if there’s something to match!
GET CUSTOM MADE
If your better half has already sent you a few designs or dropped some hints, that’s a great way to get you started. A ring made by a local, boutique or family-run jeweller such as Raffini Jewellers will make it all the more special and personal. She’ll love knowing that her ring was made especially with love from expert craftsmen.
WANDER BY A JEWELLERY SHOP WINDOW TOGETHER
Next time you’re wandering hand in hand along the street together, pause by that jewellery shop window. Point out the ones you think she might like, and see if she agrees or chooses something entirely different. This can give you a definite indication of what she likes.
LISTEN WHEN SHE TALKS ABOUT JEWELLERY
Think about those times that she’s talked about jewellery. Has she dropped any hints? Pay attention when a jewellery ad comes on and she makes a coy remark. She could be trying to tell you what kind of ring she’s after.
LOOK TO HER EXISTING JEWELLERY FOR HER STYLE
Perhaps she has mostly vintage-inspired jewellery, or maybe she prefers something with more of a modern twist. If you have a look at what she has already, that can be a great indication of what suits her style and tastes in an engagement ring.
