One of the most exciting parts of a marriage proposal is undoubtedly the element of surprise. The look on their face when they see the ring for the first time is something you are not likely to ever forget. At the same time, you want to be sure that the ring you choose is something that aligns with your partner’s aesthetic tastes, personality, and lifestyle. At Albert’s Diamond Jewelers, we have put together a few tips for gathering clues as to what sort of engagement ring your partner will love.
Consider Their Unique Style
Learning your partner’s aesthetic, i.e., the type of clothes they wear, how they decorate their home, and the type of art they like, is the best place to start. It’s essential when considering what kind of engagement ring to buy your partner that it matches their likes.
Do they typically wear more muted tones and understated pieces? Perhaps a solitaire or three stone ring would be a good choice. Are they more eccentric and prefer to stand out from the crowd? You might want to opt for an engagement ring featuring a colorful gemstone instead of a diamond.
Ask Their Close Friends
If you and your partner have been talking about getting married, they have likely thought about their future engagement ring. Consult their close friends and family to see if they have mentioned any particular styles or characteristics. You can also enlist them to inquire your partner about the ring of their dreams slyly.
Take Clues From Their Jewelry Collection
The pieces your partner wears daily can also give you great insight into the ring styles they might like. Pay attention to the types of metal they prefer to wear and the silhouettes they gravitate towards. You might even take one of their favorite rings with you to the jeweler to ensure you get the right size.
Check Their Social Media Accounts
If you are lucky, your partner will have made it easy for you by creating a blog or a Pinterest board of all the engagement ring characteristics they like. You can also check if they follow any particular bridal jewelry brands on social media sites to give you insight into their desired designers. This part might require a bit of expert sleuthing.
Pay Attention (They May Be Dropping Hints)
But, above all, pay attention to your partner; the things they gravitate towards, the comments they make, and the aesthetic pieces they choose. Odds are, if they think a proposal could be on the horizon, they may be trying to drop hints as to the type of ring they may want, like a glittering halo ring or brilliant side stone engagement ring. But even if they are entirely clueless about what’s coming, taking special care to learn about the things your partner likes is a great way to ensure you make a thoughtful choice.
