Help him choose the right engagement ring for the proposal

The love of your life is getting ready to propose. You're in a committed relationship and the two of you are ready to take the next step.


Lots of happy couples first decide to get married and then shop for the engagement ring together. But maybe it's important to him to surprise you with the ideal engagement ring. There are so many details to think about - the 4Cs, setting, style and more. How can you help?

Here are some ways to guide him to an engagement ring you'll love.

First, make sure you know the kind of engagement ring you want. Do some research on your own, try things on, find styles you really love. Focus on style, cut, and setting.

When you're ready, the next step is to tell him about your ring style and taste. You've been together for a while, so he probably has some ideas, but the stakes are higher for this ring. You'll wear it forever. If you have your heart set on an emerald-cut stone, now is the time to let him know.

You can be subtle or direct, using whatever communication style you know that your sweetie will be the most comfortable with. If you know the element of surprise is really important, consider sharing these details with someone you know he trusts, someone he might ask for help. And pay attention to questions he asks you. He's bound to be doing some research on his own. You could even collect ring ideas and share them on social media platforms you know he follows.

Be sure to let him know your ring size. While rings can be resized, this is a practical detail that is often overlooked and is great to know ahead of time.

All these things can help him choose a beautiful engagement ring with confidence.

You love each other, and deciding to get married and spend the rest of your lives together is what's really important. The engagement ring, while beautiful and sparkly, is just one part of your marriage.
