If you have decided to propose to your significant other, you are making one of the biggest, most important decisions of your entire life. It is entirely normal to feel stressed out, nervous, worried, excited, or even sick to your stomach. After all, few events in your life will seem as big and meaningful as the proposal that is about to occur. Naturally, there is much to be done before proposing, including getting the family’s permission, coming up with a proposal plan, inviting the necessary people, practicing what you will say and making sure all the other details come together. Aside from all of these things, however, you must decide on an engagement ring to present to your beloved. This decision is probably the most stressful because you have to decide on a piece of jewelry they will wear for their rest of their life…and it is usually without any input from them at all! If you want to truly surprise your significant other with the marriage proposal of their dreams, you must make sure you do not leave any hints or clues that could help them figure it out. Instead, you must be as stealthy as possible. To help you on your journey of picking an engagement ring, keep these things in mind.
- What is your significant other’s style? Your significant other’s style is important to be familiar with because it will help you to pick the perfect style of ring. A custom engagement ring is a piece of jewelry they will wear every day so you need to make sure it is something they will love to wear and that matches their overall vibe. Does your significant other have a crisp, modern style? Round or princess cut diamonds on a solitaire setting might be a good choice.
- What is a feasible price point for you? It is easy to get swept away by all the beautiful pieces when talking to a Denver jeweler, but that does not mean you should throw your budget out the window. If you see a ring you love that is out of your price range, explain this to your jeweler and they can help you find something with a similar look and feel that is more cost effective for you.
- Wedding band coordination- Eventually, you and your fiance will get married, in which case you will likely get coordinating wedding bands. Just because your significant other has a wedding band, does not mean they will stop wearing their engagement ring. In fact, it is important to think about how an engagement ring will coordinate with a wedding band so they look good together. In addition, it should ideally match the wedding band you will wear as well.
There is a lot to think about when buying an engagement ring, but remember to make a list, ask the right questions and know what you are looking for ahead of time. The above list will make the process a little easier and more streamlined, making for a less stressful proposal planning process.
