Engagement Ring Shopping Guide
Girls, We Need To Talk Rings!
Deciding to propose is a big deal for any guy, as popping the question can change a relationship forever. Although us girls can’t do much to make the proposal easier or less stressful, what we can help with is picking the ring, or at least, we can give our man some guidance on how to buy engagement rings.
Let’s be honest about it, us girls know what we want when it comes to gorgeous engagement rings. We also know that most guys need as much help as they can get, as picking the best engagement rings isn’t exactly an easy task, especially when there’s so much to consider. With that in mind, below I’ve shared some hints that are perfect for helping your boyfriend pick a ring that you’ll love.
• Teach him about your sense of style
Us girls each have our own, unique sense of style. So, when it comes to picking perfect gorgeous engagement rings, we know that our partners have their work cut out. However, if you can teach your partner about your own personal sense of style, you can help to make picking that perfect ring a little easier for them. Take him shopping with you, let him see where you shop. Show him the type of jewellery that you like. If your partner knows what type of jewellery you like, he’s more likely to succeed when it comes to picking the perfect ring. Tell him what metal colour you prefer, so that he knows whether to opt for yellow gold, white gold, or even platinum diamond engagement rings.
• Encourage him not to follow trends
There’s always new engagement rings to choose from, which is great, as lots of gorgeous engagement rings to choose from is key when finding that perfect design. However, one of the biggest mistakes that many men make when it comes to selecting a ring design is picking one just because it’s fashionable.
Many men will ask the store clerk which the most popular engagement ring designs are and then will select that one. The fact is that trends change on a regular basis, meaning that a ring that’s high fashion today could be out of fashion tomorrow. That’s why it’s so important for your partner to know how to buy engagement rings and realize that it’s always better to pick a ring that’s timeless and will still look amazing in 50 years time.
• Get him to talk to your mom/sister/best friend
To ensure that he doesn’t rush into a ring choice, encourage him to talk to your mom, sister or best friend. Perhaps you could say something like ‘I know my mom knows my jewellery tastes inside out’ – hopefully, he will get the hint. The fact is that no one knows us better than our moms, sisters, and friends, so if your man wants reassurance that he’s picked the right ring, they are the people to talk to.
Believe it or not, us girls know how much stress comes with choosing an engagement ring, and we love the fact that our partners take so much time agonizing over finding the best engagement rings. However, we are also happy to help make the process of choosing a ring a little easier by giving our partners all the right hints.
