This is it: You know that she’s the one, and you want to propose to her. The thing is that it’s easier said than done.
Why? Because of the engagement ring.
That’s right. One of the most important parts is the ring you’ll choose when you propose. It has to be perfect because she’ll show it to everyone she knows while bursting with joy.
Shopping for Your Girlfriend’s Engagement Ring – The Reality
1. You’ll listen carefully whenever she talks about jewelry
If you’re like most guys, then you probably know little about jewelry or rings. Since the time to propose has come, you’ll need to start paying more attention than ever to any discussions she’ll have about rings.
It might sound weird and out of this world, but trust us, this will happen. You’ll even ask her questions on that topic.
Be careful, though: You don’t want to give yourself away by being too obvious about this.
2. You will call her girlfriends
Her girlfriends probably know things about her you don’t know. We’re talking about her preferences for rings.
Chances are, your girlfriend spends more time shopping with them and not with you, so you can count on them for a good piece of advice. The only thing you’ll want to do is make sure they’ll keep it a secret.
3. You will window shop with your friends who have gone through this
Hopefully, you have a friend or two that has experienced this situation before. Don’t be afraid to ask their advice or have them recommend stores where you can find engagement rings. (Click here to find stores in your area that carry Uneek engagement rings.)
It may not sound like an ideal way to spend an evening, but it will be worth it.
4. Every ring will look the same to you
The same goes for the stone. The only thing you’ll be able to differentiate at first will be the color of the diamond and the size. Your instinct will say to go with the first ring that looks like something she’d like.
That is a rookie mistake. Research is essential when you go shopping for an engagement ring.
5. You will learn many things about precious stones
Deciding what type of stone the ring should have will probably be a hard decision. Would she really want a diamond? If so, what color? But what should the size of the stone be? How do I figure out if the diamond is genuine? Does she prefer a sapphire center, maybe?
These will be a few questions that will go through your mind. At the end of all this, you’ll most likely be able to teach others everything there is to know about engagement rings and precious stones.
