Valentine’s Day is not biggest proposal holiday. Christmas Eve is in first place followed by Christmas Day and then New Year’s Eve. The holidays can make for a perfect backdrop to ask the love of your life to spend the rest of it together. Before you head out to buy the ring we have a few tips to help you out and hear the “YES!” you’ve been waiting for.
The Perfect Ring for the Holiday Proposal
The “perfect” ring is the ring that your partner is going to love the moment you propose. But, how do you know that’s the one? Hints are helpful from your partner but you don’t want it to be obvious. We believe you should have a relationship with your jeweler. Come in and talk about what the love of your life likes, doesn’t like, styles and trends. If you’re already planning and don’t need the proposal to be a surprise, bring your fiancé in and let’s discuss your ideas together. This doesn’t need to be you on an island, stranded, worrying about it being “perfect.”
The Engagement Ring’s Style
The metal of the engagement ring is going to be very important and something you should know your fiancé wants to wear. Beyond the traditional yellow gold is white gold, rose gold, platinum, and we carry all those varieties. You might be thinking the setting is going to be the most important, but the entire ring has to work together. Knowing the metal first will help with that next step.
The Diamond Engagement Ring
The stone shape on the engagement ring could be the hardest decision you’ll make. How many stones? Paves? Baguettes? Solitaires? Three stones or more? The single solitaire is the timeless option. Have you thought about designing your own? We can do that and have done that for so many clients. The one-of-a-kind engagement ring will certainly make the holiday proposal memorable. Our designers use Computer Assisted Design (CAD), pencil sketches, wax carving and casting. CAD allows you to see the piece before we make it.
When you come to Designing Jewelers, you are walking into a neighborhood shop where we ensure you aren’t intimidated and have zero stress. Let’s work together to make this special moment, the holiday proposal, something no one will ever forget!
