The marriage proposal is one of the most exciting moments in a young couple's life and is usually accompanied by a diamond ring that symbolizes the proposal and commitment to the future. So how do you choose a ring that your partner will love? We've compiled a few tips to help you choose an engagement ring or any other piece of jewelry you'd like to give them.
1. Do some research
Before you go out and buy a ring or jewelry for your partner - try to find out as much information about their expectations as possible, what is the importance of the ring in their eyes? Do they have a ring in their head that they want? How much money do they think should be spent on a ring? To succeed in choosing the perfect engagement ring, you must become a detective. Try to get as much information out of them as possible, indirectly - it requires you to be sharp and careful, but it is only for a short period of time.
2. Understand what their style is (it's about time anyway)
Pay attention to the jewelry they have bought for themselves, which pieces they wear daily and what they wear for special occasions: is it gold? White gold? Large stones? Do they like big shiny jewelry or something small and delicate?
The taste of jewelry usually matches the person's personality: are they refined or extroverted? Do they wear a lot of jewelry or a little?
This is true about choosing any piece of jewelry or gift - the rule is: Do not try to surprise them with a different style - you should choose a similar style.
3. Consult with their best friend
A great way to understand your partners' taste more precisely is to discuss with their best friend. Their best friend knows everything about your partner, goes shopping with them and knows them very well - you should know how to use special techniques to get as much information as possible - without arousing suspicion. You'll be surprised, but chances are they've already prepared each other for this exact conversation in the past.
4. Stop by a jewelry store (spontaneously)
Try to create a situation in which you hang out together in a shopping area and stop by at the window of a jewelry store. Pay attention to exactly what they are looking at, what they say about the rings they see, what style are they attracted to. Do they look at yellow gold rings or white gold? Maybe they say something negative about a particular ring.
For the bravest among us: take advantage of the situation, point to a ring you like and ask: "What do you think of this ring?" Remember their answer - it'll take you a step closer to the right ring.
5. Take a look at their apps
If you are a couple who share everything, you can easily log in to Pinterest, Instagram, or other pages stored on their mobile or computer. It is possible that one of the folders is devoted to the jewelry that your partner loves, and from there it gets a lot easier.
6. Measure their finger
Here's a place where a lot of people fall: so many people buy an engagement ring without knowing in advance what size will fit their partner. Imagine the moment: you're down on one knee, the atmosphere is amazing, they've said yes, but... the ring does not fit. It's not so bad - we'll send it tomorrow for an expansion — definitely, a moment you will not forget.
The best solution is to make sure that the size of the ring you are purchasing is the appropriate one is to "borrow" a ring that they do not wear frequently and consult with a professional about the proper size. It is important to remember that the ring should be comfortable for years, so it is best not to be too tight or too loose.
7. Just ask them
Many couples are already at a stage where they have no problem talking about things. Whether it has only been a few months since the beginning of the relationship or whether you are just before the moment you plan to propose, many people would be happy to share their important information with their partners to avoid mistakes and misunderstandings in the future. Do not be afraid to ask - on the contrary; it is a conversation that can generate a lot of appreciation on the other side.
