Engagements are super exciting, there’s honestly nothing better than getting proposed to by the person of your dreams. However, sometimes the ring you receive isn’t quite the ring you were hoping for. It’s extremely difficult for your significant other to shop for your engagement ring, but it’s even harder if they don’t know what you want.
One tip we swear by? Never let your SO go in blind! Prepare them with the specs you’re hoping for, whether you lay it all out for them or just give a few little hints. Trust us, it’ll save them later on big time! If you don’t mind the ring and know they can nail your style, then this will just be a fun little read. But, if you want to make sure they hit the engagement ring on the head, keep on reading. Here are the ways you can ensure you snag the ring of your dreams, without causing any heartache or hiccups in your relationship.
How To Give Your Significant Other Hints About Your Dream Engagement Rings
1. Engagement Rings Pinterest Board
Start a Pinterest board with all the details for the ring you want. We find this is the best way to show your significant other the visuals of the engagement rings you’ve been dreaming of. If you can’t find a pin that resembles exactly what you’re after, make your own pin! You can actually upload your own pins to the platform, so this ensures you get the ring of your dreams. You can add a title, a description and a picture to describe what you’re hoping for. To make it even more bulletproof, make two boards. Separate one for the setting and one for the diamond. With using a Pinterest board, you can also alter and remove posts you don’t feel fit your vision if you change your mind over time.
2. Confide In A Friend Or Family Member
If you want them to blow it out of the park, confide in someone you trust. Provide pictures, descriptions, even websites of the exact details of what you want. If the specifics matter, then it’s best you get them prepared beforehand. When my fiancé proposed, I had sent his sister ideas of what I wanted a year prior to the proposal. At this point, we had been dating for 7 years, so I felt comfortable sharing my vision and specs of dream engagement rings. I had no idea when he was going to propose, but I knew the time came that he would want some guidance in that area, so why not make it easy on him? He knew I spoke to his sister all the time and she actually forwarded my dream ring ideas right away to him and he saved them for later.
3. Just Tell Them
It never hurts to just express your opinion! If you’re dead set on a design, and you don’t want to risk it… as you will be the one wearing it for years to come, then just tell them! Most people appreciate exact directions and it will definitely come in handy in the long run. They want to make you happy! In order for them to do that, they need to know exactly what you want. Sometimes it’s easier to just lay it all out face-to-face.
4. Go Shopping Together
We’ve seen this a lot as of late. Shopping together will guarantee you both are happy with the ring and you can make it an experience. Pick one out together, do the try ons. Then, they can go back to do the finishing touches, pick the diamond, and purchase the ring. You won’t know when they’re going to propose, or see the final ring, but you would’ve gotten to pick out the setting, the shape, and ensure your size was correct. You’re apart of all the necessities to ensure you love the final product, but it still gets to be a surprise.
5. Save & Send Engagement Rings Photos & Videos
Social media is a beautiful thing! There are so many accounts out there that feature engagement rings in videos and pictures. Save or bookmark your favourites and casually send them on over. If you see a ring you absolutely adore, why not share it? They’ll appreciate the gesture and information later on, and they’ll have it in writing what you adore! We show how easy it is to send via instagram down below!
My fiancé actually proposed with a replica ring. I never expected a proposal, so I didn’t do my own research on the options available. I just knew I wanted an elongated radiant cut diamond with a diamond encrusted band (which I now know is referred to as pave). His sister was given the photos of engagement rings I adored earlier on and he went off of those photos, but still didn’t feel 100% confident. He was afraid I would want to change it or add little embellishments like a hidden halo, different basket type, etc. After our proposal, he had me research rings and figure out what exactly my dream ring was. We ended up going with a ring that was identical to my replica ring, just with a hidden halo accent under the stone. It’s gorgeous! That aspect wasn’t a make or break for me, so him proposing with a ring identical to the first would’ve blown me away, but the little touch adds a stunning hidden factor to the ring. Now, I have a cheaper ring I can vacation with that looks identical to my real one! And my fiancé is over-the-moon that I got the ring of my dreams. It’s a win, win.
My radiant engagement ring!
