Congratulations! He asked, and you said yes! We’re sure the engagement ring is stunningly beautiful. And, hey, it’s perfectly understandable if want to seize the moment, express your joy!
What better way to do it than letting all your friends know with the perfect Instagram ring selfie? Forget what they say about “oversharing” details of your life. This isn’t you buying coffee. This is you getting engaged! It’s one of the most important moments of your life! So, by all means, yes, go ahead and Instagram that ring away!
Read on to find out about five useful tips on how to take the perfect diamond engagement ring selfie on Instagram.
The Ring Is the Centerpiece
The engagement ring selfie is sacred. The ring is the star. So, it has to shine. Treat it like a superstar.
Of course, all your friends and acquaintances will be happy for you. But when you tell them the big news, there’s no denying they’ll want to know about the ring first before they delve into other details like how he proposed, where he proposed, etc. Here’s a couple of things to consider when planning to Instagram that ring:
1. The Light
If it’s a diamond engagement ring, you know you have to make it shine. Use the light to your advantage. Maybe wait until the golden hour (also known as the magic hour); this is the short period after sunrise or before sunset. Lighting during this time makes everything look better. It’s super flattering, not only for your ring, but also for your skin (and everything else around you).
2. Get an Awesome Manicure
Your nails will be in the picture. Even if the ring is a shocker, you’d still want your manicure to be in top shape.
If you felt he was going to pop the big question, chances are you already took care of it. If you were caught off-guard and said yes, get them done before posting the picture on Instagram. You don’t want less-than-perfect nails to distract people from your ring!
3. Know Your Diamond Engagement Ring
Take a closer look at the design. What is special about this ring (other than what it symbolizes, of course)? Is it the center diamond and how it’s perfectly set? Is there unique, ultra-romantic details in the profile view? Is there a “surprise” diamond somewhere? Compose your photo in such a way that it highlights those features. Is the ring custom-tailored? If so, there must be a thing or two about it that makes it super special (he wouldn’t go through hoops if the resulting ring wouldn’t have a special touch), like an engraving somewhere. Is it a pink diamond or colored diamond? That’s magical! Take your photo so it really shows the color of stone. Pink diamonds are amongst the rarest of them all.
4. The Background Counts!
Make sure the background emphasizes your ring. Most girls like to use feminine details, like flowers. Stay away from cluttered backgrounds. Try to use his hand as a background—there’s nothing more romantic.
Please don’t use your bathroom. Mirror selfies are anything but great.
5. Camera and Filters
Smartphone pictures will never be as good looking as professional ones. But that doesn’t mean you can’t take your time to get the perfect one.
Don’t use the zoom function. If you want to take a close-up picture, with more details, bring your phone closer. Then, tap the screen so that the focus will be on your stunning diamond engagement ring.
For filters, it is better to avoid them. But if the no-filter quality doesn’t satisfy you, use one. The most used filter is Valencia.
Take more than just one photo. Then, go through them and pick the best one. Change the angles and try to see which highlights the centerpiece – the ring.
Add a sentimental caption about getting married. Express your joy. Then, add some hashtags. The most commonly used ones are:
That’s it. Following the tips presented above will help you get the perfect diamond engagement ring Instagram selfie. Congratulations!
