You’ve decided it’s the right time to propose, now you just need the right ring. Seems simple enough. Then you walk into the store and find there are different metals, colored sapphires and thousands of gorgeous styles to choose from. The best way to know what’s right for her is to do a little research first.
Check Out Her Style
If she wears a lot of jewelry that is delicate and subtle, you might want to lean toward a setting with a thin pavé band, as it’s something she’ll feel comfortable adding to her everyday look. If she has a lot of chunky necklaces or larger bracelets and rings, a more decorative halo may suit her better.
Get a Little Help from the Internet
Pinterest has a plethora of engagement ring images she can save and share with the world. Take a look at her boards to see what’s caught her eye most. If there’s a particular style that pops up again and again, that might be the one! Also take a look at her Twitter. Has she shared any engagement ring photos she likes? Social platforms are a great way to look for hints.
Take Some Advice
Asking her mom, sister or friends about what ring style you should go with can be insightful and help you obtain insider information. These are the people closest to her, and surely they know a little something about her “dream ring.”
Let Her Decide
If you’re just not sure what style is best, why not let her pick the ring? You can do so without ruining the surprise by proposing with a classic solitaire setting that really shows off the stunning center diamond, then bring her back into the store to exchange the simple setting for the ring of her dreams.
