Here is the ultimate guide to help you purchase an engagement ring that your girlfriend will flip over. Let’s get started.
- Establish Your Budget - First thing you’ll need to do before you step into a jewellery store is establish a budget. It will help the jeweller show you options that are in your price range. If you want to propose, don’t delay because you can’t afford a better ring. The ring is supposed to be a symbol of your love, and what does it say about your love that you’re willing to postpone your marriage to buy a better rock?
- Make It a Surprise - The jeweller I talked to noted that he’s been seeing more and more men coming in with their girlfriends to pick out a ring. While letting your wife-to-be pick out the ring she wants will ensure that the ring fits and that she likes it, you’re denying yourself a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to show how thoughtful and romantic you are. Imagine the look of surprise your girlfriend will have when 1) you propose to her, 2) the ring fits, and 3) the ring you picked is exactly what she wanted. If you can successfully pull off this trifecta of surprises, you will be the subject of envious conversations among your girlfriend’s social circle, your future mother-in-law will say you’re a catch, and men around you will silently acknowledge your achievement. Making the engagement ring a surprise will take some work, but it’s well worth the investment.
- Find Out Her Ring Size - This where a lot of men screw up in the purchasing process. They’ll have the perfect ring picked out, but they get the wrong size ring for their girlfriend’s finger. When they get down on one knee and attempt to slide the ring on their lady’s finger, it doesn’t fit and awkwardness ensues. The best way to get your girlfriend’s ring size is to get a ring that she isn’t wearing and bring it to the jeweller to be measured. If you want to maintain the surprise factor, you’ll have to be sneaky about this. Try to swipe a ring that you don’t see her wearing very much; she’ll be less likely to notice its absence.
- Research Her Style - You want to pick a ring that fits your woman’s unique style and preferences. Getting a ring that she’s over the moon for will score you romance points that will last a lifetime. Maybe she’s a silver or platinum woman. Does she like simple, understated pieces? Or does she favour the big, glitzy variety? Think about her personality; is she an outgoing girl who you know is going to want to show off her ring to everyone she meets?
So best of luck boys! We hope with all this information, you will create a truly beautiful memory to cherish all your lives!
