You want it. You have been in a relationship for a while and you feel that it is time to move to the next level. You are going to ask him to marry you! But for this you need to choose the perfect engagement ring , which makes the request unforgettable for both of you.
This little guide will help you if you don’t know where to start:
Before buying a ring, do your research
You may think you know your girlfriend’s tastes, and you do, but when you ask many boyfriends: “And what style of ring does she like?”, They are left blank. It is difficult to define, and in reality, a man who is not very interested in jewelry or aesthetics, surely will not have been set to that level.
So you have to investigate, with all the concealment possible. You have many sources to turn to:
- Study her jeweler’s favorite pieces and rings when she’s away.
- Take her for a walk in front of jewelry windows (like she doesn’t want the thing) and study her reactions, or if she likes a particular piece.
- Ask about his closest relatives (mothers, sisters).
- If by chance you found her looking at an online jewelry catalog … don’t waste the opportunity to sit down with her and be interested in what she looks at!
Calculate budget for that special alliance
The cost you make on the engagement ring depends above all on the materials chosen.
Here are a couple of articles in which we talk about both metals for wedding bands and precious stones. They will serve you the same way to choose your engagement ring.
In any case, and in short: gold and diamond is more expensive. Silver and zirconia, cheaper.
If it falls into your budget and you want to leave her speechless, it is time to go for the famous “solitaire”: a diamond of a certain size, set in the center of the ring.
In reality, more than the material, the symbolic and the effort matter. So don’t be obsessed with the budget: work with what you have.
Get her ring size
You already have more or less an idea of the type of engagement ring you want, based on your budget and the tastes of your partner. Now you need a fundamental piece of information: get the size without her knowing. In this article you will find some useful methods for measuring the size of a ring.
If you don’t do this right, the gift ring could be too narrow, or too wide, and although it can be fixed… Better to get it right the first time, right?
Decide if you search or order
Before you only had one option: search and search until you find the ring that is closest to what you think she will like. This is how it has worked for many years, and successfully.
But today technology opens other doors for you. Here at JSecrets, for example, you have the possibility to design yourself the custom-made engagement ring you want. We do not start from models: you tell us your idea and we start to design it in virtual models that you will review. This is how we create unique and exclusive rings, of which there is no replica in the world, designed only to make your partner fall in love and force her to say yes.
Therefore, you can choose: search or create. Choose or order. Whatever your path … good luck and may your request be a success!
