Deciding to spend the rest of your life with the one person is a monumental decision to make. As is often the case, it isn’t one to be made overnight. While there are many different ways to propose your loved one, the most traditional is to get down on one knee and produce and engagement ring you can put on her finger if she says yes—but this takes planning.
If you have another friend or family member who has just gotten engaged, try and strike up a conversation about what your other half thinks of their ring. This will give you a good indication of what she is looking for, so you have better odds of finding something she loves without her knowing anything is going on.
Finding out her correct ring size can be a tricky one. You don’t want to propose with a ring that is too small it won’t fit, or too big it falls off. But just remember, the size can be adjusted down the track so it isn’t a huge issue. To get close to the right size, take one of her existing rings and trace around the inside – you can pass this information onto the jeweller.
They can help you every step of the way to ensure you give your other half the biggest surprise of all.
