Tips for Selecting a Wedding Ring

Congratulations on finding the person that you would like to spend the rest of your life with. It’s certainly an exciting time, but there’s still a lot to think about. When, where, and how are you going to propose? It’s an event that requires a lot of planning, as well as learning how to be secretive and discreet. What goes hand and hand with the proposal is the engagement ring.
It’s more than likely that you want to keep the upcoming engagement a secret to your significant other, so you need to find a way to find out the type of jewelry they like. Consider these tips on acquiring this important information.
  1. Go Sherlock Holmes: One thing you could do is go into detective mode. Find a way to have a look at her jewelry when she’s not around. Get a sense of the type of style and colors she likes to wear. It’s a good idea to take some photos of her items. This will help you remember what she has and could also be good information to bring into a jeweler and get suggestions from them based on what your soon–to-be-fiancĂ© already owns.
  2. Get in the Loop: The main goal here is to talk to her friends and family, particularly friends and family who have a good idea about her sense of style. Usually, best friends will be the best bet for this option. However, keep in mind that this will disclose to the people closest to her that you will be proposing, so make sure you can trust them to keep it a secret and that they are aware that it is a surprise.
Ask her yourself:  If you’re in a situation where your significant other already knows that you will be proposing, it makes sense to get her input on the matter. Even if she doesn’t know when and where you will be proposing and she just knows that you are going to at some point, there’s no reason not to have her give you an idea of what she is looking for in an engagement ring. Go to Schwanke-Kasten and do a little online window shopping to see what catches her eye.
