A proposal is one of the most difficult things in a couple’s life to navigate for several reasons. It’s a moment both a man and woman will remember for the rest of their lives, so it has to be absolutely perfect. The location has to be chosen with care, and both parties have to agree on the timing. And of course, the engagement ring must be perfect. Here at Long Jewelers, we consider it part of our mission to provide couples with glorious engagement rings from some of the top designers in the industry, including Tacori, Fana, and A.JAFFE
Choosing the Perfect Ring
Have you already discussed marriage, or is there an implicit understanding? Depending on your approach, there are two different ways to find the perfect engagement ring.
If you and your lady are already discussing marriage, you can easily get a whole list of information about what kind of ring she wants. A brief list of questions should include: her favorite tone of gold or precious metal of choice, what diamond shape she wants as the center stone, and then secondary questions like preference for colored gemstones and styles of engagement ring, either vintage or modern. And of course, don’t forget to ask what your lady’s ring size is!
If there’s an implicit understanding that the proposal is going to be a surprise, you can’t ask her directly what she wants in her ring or her ring size. That can be tricky, but there are two good ways of finding out about her tastes. You can look through her jewelry box to take notes about what she likes in a ring; alternatively, you can ask a trustworthy female relative of your lady-friend about her tastes.
Wedding Bands and Men’s Rings
Once you’ve popped the question, it’s important to follow it up with having wedding bands ready. When browsing for wedding bands, you have to remember that both a bride- and groom-to-be must have a wedding band. And because both a man and woman have a band, you can play with the pairing—you can have two bands made of the same tone of gold and have complementary styles, or you can have contrasting bands that show off individual tastes.
Here at Long Jewelers, we don’t want happy couples to worry about finances while they’re preparing for their engagement or wedding day. We provide financing for our customers with approved credit through Wells Fargo.
