Who Do I Ask for Guidance on Her Style?
You’ve finally found the woman of your dreams, the one who will share all of life’s challenges, victories, and special moments with you. Preparing to buy an engagement ring is the next step in building your life together.
However, the prospect of picking out the perfect diamond ring for your special someone might seem overwhelming, even if you understand her taste and personal style. At Kwiat, we’ve helped couples find engagement rings for over 100 years, so we have some advice on how to choose one she’ll love.
First, make a point of speaking to someone close to her. Every woman has a person she leans on for support and advice. This will be someone she counts on and consults regarding matters great and small. Speaking to your partner’s closest confidant about what type of diamond engagement ring to buy should be your very first step.
It might be a female family member, like her mother or her sister, but it could also be a grandmother or an aunt. Perhaps it’s her best friend—someone she’s known since childhood or someone with whom she often spends her time. This person will know exactly how to guide you towards a ring that your partner will love—and she’s likely just waiting for you to ask. You’ve likely spent plenty of time getting to know your partner’s friends and family members, so there should be no reason to feel bashful when asking this confidant for advice about style and taste preferences.
Once you have scheduled a time to speak with this family member or friend, be as discreet as possible so no one spoils the surprise for your fiancée-to-be. First, ask if there is a particular ring that your partner has had her heart set on forever. It’s possible she’s been dreaming of something very specific, and her confidant can steer you directly to the right choice. She might even have images of the ring to show you, if you’re lucky!
If not, ask more detailed questions. Be sure to inquire about different diamond shapes and cuts. You’ll also want to find out if your fiancée-to-be has a favorite setting or style, such as a prong-set or bezel-set diamond, and which metal—white gold, yellow gold, rose gold, or platinum—she likes best.
Finally, if this confidant is still not sure how to best direct you, politely ask for her help in gathering information. She can act as a tactful liaison between you and your fiancée-to-be, ensuring you’ll pick a ring that’s exactly what she wants.
