Your ultimate guide to buying the perfect proposal ring

So you’ve found the person you want to spend the rest of your life with - congratulations! Choosing the perfect ring to symbolise your commitment can be a difficult task, especially if you’re choosing to shop for your partner’s ring without any input from them. Luckily we’ve got some tips to share with you to make this easier.

Did you know that about 69% of people drop hints about what kind of engagement ring they’d like? Pay attention to any comments your partner makes about other people’s engagement rings and jewellery in general - they might just be trying to tell you something. Paying attention to their personal style can also give you some helpful pointers. Do they wear more gold-hued or silvery jewellery? Do they like simple, timeless outfits or do they always keep on top of the latest trends? These factors can give you tips on what kind of an engagement ring they’d like.

You could also choose to shop for the ring together after you’ve gotten engaged - in fact, about one in four proposals take place without a ring, so if you know your partner is quite particular about their style, this might be a good option.
