The Ultimate Engagement Conundrum: Surprise or No Surprise?

Ah, the classic dilemma of the soon-to-be-engaged gentleman – to surprise or not to surprise when it comes to the engagement ring. It's a decision that has perplexed many a hopeful groom-to-be, and for good reason.

On the other hand, the element of surprise can add an extra touch of magic to the proposal. On the other hand, the fear of not getting the perfect choice for your lady can also be scary. But no worries, for we are here to help guide you through this momentous decision so you can make your dream proposal come true.

Firstly, let's address the elephant in the room – is your fiancée the kind of person who can’t decide what to eat for dinner even though they’ve made up their mind? If so, the surprise route might not be for you. If your partner has specific tastes, preferences, or perhaps an aversion to certain ring styles, it might be best to involve her in the ring selection process. After all, you want the ring to be a reflection of her individuality, not a source of disappointment.

On the other hand, if your partner is the type who appreciates the thoughtfulness of you making this journey on your own, the surprise engagement would be the most memorable gift that you throw for her.  And if you do choose to venture on the solo path, you’ve landed on the right page.


Tips on choosing her style and taste jewellery: 

1.Take note of her existing jewelry collection: Is it mostly gold or silver coloured? Does she lean towards modern, classic, or vintage pieces?

2. Pay attention to her go-to style: Is she the classic type who prefers delicate and dainty accessories? Or is she more adventurous and lean towards bold and statement-making pieces?

3. Take hints on what color would she love for an engagement ring: You might think that a natural diamond might be an easy option, or going for her favorite color is a safe path. However, an engagement ring means a lot of things to a woman, and thus she might opt for a more unique choice of color.
