You want to be surprised when your man presents you with a ring and proposal. Yet, his taste is not up to par with yours, which is a little worrisome. After all, there is this unique engagement ring you have had your eye on for over a year. You’ve longed for it from a distance so often you’re afraid anything else will disappoint.
But, the last thing you want is to diminish his grand gesture of love and romance and make it all about the ring. After all, an engagement ring is a promise to wed… not a promise to know and purchase your every whim, although that would be a bonus.
There are subtle, and mostly effective, ways to guide him to the ring of your dreams.
It’s not about being underhanded. It’s about creating a win-win situation where both of you are happy. He is probably bewildered with the task of selecting the ring you will love that he can afford. He’s the kind of guy who wants to surprise you so how can you gently persuade him to find and buy that unique engagement ring you love.
Lisa Krikawa, award-winning founder/designer of Krikawa Jewelry Designs, has years of experience helping men pick out engagement rings. “Many men settle for a simple solitaire with the knowledge they can upgrade the size and quality of the diamond in the future. This has always been a good plan. However, with the expansive selection that is offered these days, there are styles that surpass the traditional solitaire setting. He is not likely to be in the know. So guiding him along actually helps relieve potential stress on his part.”
After all, you will be married for life – so he needs to understand your personal taste. Some people love geometrics, while others love smooth, sleek lines. Your preferences generally extend outward and can be observed in the car designs, art, décor, clothing, and more.
In the event he ignores or doesn’t follow the breadcrumbs, he will at the very least be able to select a ring that ticks off your checklist. But… rather than count on that, get a family member or best friend involved. After all, an engagement ring is a big commitment. The price tags are large and its longevity is implied.
Above all, be gracious and accept the ring and proposal with genuine appreciation. There will be time to upgrade or exchange during a significant anniversary in the future.
