Listen for clues!

Chances are you partner has given you a load of tips about what sort of jewellery they like. Listen to what they say and try to understand their taste. Just try not to make it too obvious by asking too many questions! Listen for comments about the shape of the stone they like. Do they like round cut, princess cut or oval diamonds? (You thought this was going to be simple didn’t you!) Take a look at their existing jewellery and see what they normally opt for.

Shop around and haggle

Just like with anything, you aren’t going to buy the first thing you see. This is an important decision to make and you shouldn’t rush in. Take some time to schedule in a few visits to several shops. You may think that all diamond rings look the same but I can assure you, by the end of this you will know all about rings. Another thing is to try to haggle with the shop owner. You will be spending a lot of money in their store, so don’t be afraid to ask for a discount.

Think about the brand

There are many different jewellery brands out there. Has your partner ever hinted about their favourite? Not sure on the differences? Tacori is a great place to get started. Their rings are handcrafted by some of the most skilled jewellery makers out there.

Don’t let anyone sway you

If you tell people that you are planning on proposing, the world and his wife will have an opinion on what ring you should get. Remember that the only person whose opinion really counts is yours. After all, you are the one buying the ring. You are also the one who has been with your partner for however many years, and knows them inside out. If you think you know exactly which ring is perfect, stick to your guns. Don’t let parents or friends tell you otherwise! And the best thing about this is that when your partner loves the ring you bought, you will know it was all your decision!

Getting the right size

When you go to buy the ring, the next thing is to get the right size. If you want to keep it a secret from your partner, it will be hard to get an exact measurement for the ring. However, if you are able to sneak out one of their existing rings, take that as a guideline for the jeweller. You can always get it resized later but the closer to the true size, the better.
