If you’re reading this, you’re probably about to pop the big question and you might be sweating bullets over finding the perfect engagement ring for your sweetie. We get it! Talk about a significant purchase — one that makes a statement for life. And because your partner will be the one wearing it every day, you’re going to want to do some legwork (a.k.a. sneaky reconnaissance) to make sure they’re getting the ring of their dreams. No pressure, right? But don’t fret, your BM fairy godmothers are here to help!
You picked a great year to get engaged — there have never been more affordable and beautiful engagement ring options available by just a few clicks of a button. Whether you’re on a budget or making more eco-conscious choices (or both!), you might be considering diamond alternatives, and we think moissanite reigns supreme. These dazzling lab-grown gems are not only more brilliant than traditional diamonds, but they’re also highly durable and inherently sustainable.
The good news is you don’t need to look far in order to find that perfect moissanite ring for your S.O. The fabulous team at Flawless Moissanite, a global luxury online retailer (and favorite wedding jeweler of ours) specializes in the highest quality offerings including white gold, yellow gold, rose gold, platinum and silver precious metals. They’ve got the engagement ring for you, and with the following tips, you can start investigating what style your partner really wants. Happy sleuthing!
1. Enlist the help of close friends.
An age-old, tried-and-true method for a reason, enlisting the help of your partner’s friends might be one of the safest tricks in the book. There’s a good chance your S.O. has gushed with their bestie about their dream ring, so why not go straight to the source and ask them what they know?
Plus, if they haven’t had that conversation, a friend can be an ally and help ask your partner some sneaky questions about their preferences. You may find out your partner secretly dreams of an emerald engagement ring. Teamwork makes the dream work!
2. Peek at their Pinterest.
How did we even plan weddings before Pinterest? Ask any millennial woman and they probably had a wedding board going long before they ever met their future spouse. If you land on their profile, scroll through their boards for their wedding inspiration, or have a friend help you sleuth. If you don’t know if they have an account, Google their other social media handles with the word ‘Pinterest’, it might come up as the same name!
3. Consider their overall style.
This is a big one! When it comes to finding your partner’s dream ring — something they’ll actually love and wear forever — you must consider their personal style. Write down some adjectives to describe their aesthetic and then choose a design accordingly. Vintage lover? Consider an art deco-inspired halo engagement ring set. Romantic at heart? They might love a princess cut.
4. Use their current jewelry as inspiration.
If your sweetie wears jewelry, your job is about to get way easier. By taking hints from what they already wear you can narrow down certain aspects of the ring’s design. Their jewelry box can tell you if they prefer silver, gold, rose gold, vintage, modern…you get the picture!
5. Plan a trip to the mall.
This one will take a bit more skill to pull off, but try suggesting a trip with your partner to the mall for something innocent, say, a new pair of jeans. Casually stroll by the jeweler, observe any lingering, and take note of any styles that catch their eye. No promises they won’t have a sneaky suspicion of what you’re up to, but hey, that’s a risk certainly worth taking!
