When it comes to engagement rings, the possibilities are endless. Engagement rings come in countless different styles, with many different metal and gemstone options, to fit the individual personality of each soon-to-be newlywed. With a never-ending number of options, it can be hard to know where to even start or even to know what your significant other likes when it comes to engagement rings.
You know everything about your significant other–what kind of pizza to order, favorite color, movie choice and more–and yet, you are struggling to know where to begin when it comes to this extremely important choice in jewelry. In fact, it is more than a choice in jewelry. This ring signifies a lifelong decision and has the question of your lifetime riding on it.
For those looking for valuable clues as to what your significant other is looking for in an engagement ring, here are some practical hints.
Look at her Pinterest boards. Look and see if she has any Pinterest boards with saved photos of engagement rings. If she has any engagement rings saved on her Pinterest account, there is a good chance that she will be drawn to engagement rings that have a similar look and feel. Some jewelers will even help you look through her profile to select rings that are close matches!
Observe her style and what she wears on a daily basis. Does she like to wear bold colors and patterns, or is she drawn to a more quiet and subdued style in clothing? Taking the time to observe what she wears on a daily basis can provide you with insight into her style and what she finds appealing. If she is drawn to simplicity, a ring loaded with diamonds and intricate details may not be what she is looking for.
Ask her family or friends. Those who love her and are closest to her will know her best. Try asking her parents, a sibling or another relative what they think she will like in an engagement ring. Of course, you do not want to ruin the surprise if you are planning a surprise proposal, but these family members and friends can offer great opinions about what they think she will like. In the end, you will make the final decision, but the advice of others can be of great value to some individuals looking for help.
Ask her. Some couples have a fully open dialog about the engagement ring, while others like to keep the choice in a ring a surprise. However, even if you are looking to keep the ring selection and proposal a surprise, you may be able to ask her what she likes and dislikes without giving anything away. Does she like a square cut in diamond? Oval? For some, hinting around with questions is enough to get an idea of what she is looking for in an engagement ring.
