We know you’d be happy with a Ring Pop, as long as you get to marry your man. But trust us, he’ll want a little help in ensuring you receive a ring you really love.
After all, an engagement ring is a big investment, an accessory you’ll be rocking for the rest of your life and something that will remind you of him every time you look down at your left hand. The first hint you want to drop? It has to be platinum! Whether you prefer an emerald to a princess cut diamond, the highest quality setting you can choose is platinum. Platinum will ensure that your sparkling diamond or precious gems will be held securely in place for a lifetime. Read on for 7 more tips for getting the ring of your dreams:
1. Picture Perfect
You know the saying a picture is worth a thousand words? In this case, it could not be more true. If you can’t get enough of an intricate woven design band you found on Pinterest, then it’s time to start pinning! Who could blame you for accidentally leaving your Platinum Perfection board up on your browser?
2. Shopping Trip
From shoes to bags, we all love to window shop! Why should engagement ring shopping be any different?! At your next trip to the mall with your man, you might just happen to stumble upon a jewelry store. Point out a few styles you like and quickly move on. Your guy will be sure to take a mental note of the pretty platinum sparkler you couldn’t take your eyes off of.
3. Play Telephone
Your best friend knows exactly what snack you’ll be munching on while catching up on Netflix. So she’s a natural choice for your man to turn to when in need of some engagement ring guidance! If you love the look of a single solitaire stone, let her know down to the infinity band set in platinum. She’ll be sure to pass the message along.
4. Go For A Surprise
Openly talking it out with your guy? Then it’s time to come clean. Let him know if you prefer a round stone and have always had an affinity for a platinum band. Then the rest is up to him! With a few small details from you, he can propose with a ring design that is inline with what you love but still a total surprise.
5. Better Together
You’re starting the rest of your lives together as a team, so why not build the ring of your dreams the same way? Go hand-in-hand to pick out the diamond and setting for your engagement ring. You might find out that you prefer a radiant cut to a princess once you see the options set in platinum in-person. Go team!
6. Celeb Style Crush
Is your favorite celeb sporting an engagement ring you totally love? Be sure to point it out! “Did you see Mila Kunis’s engagement ring?! It’s so classic, a platinum band with a round diamond. That’s exactly what I would want.” You’ll just look like you’re keeping up with pop culture!
7. Finders Keepers
The last step to getting your dream ring is leaving an old ring behind! That beautiful platinum birthstone ring Grandma got you for your birthday? It was so silly of you to leave it at his apartment! Now he just happens to have the perfect way to find out your exact ring size.
