Back in the good old days it was expected that the man should choose the ring for his intended wife before popping the question.

Nowadays most couples choose a ring together – either before or after the ‘event’, which is indeed a crying shame in my humble (albeit old fashioned) opinion.

I have however noticed that lately there has been a resurgence.  Men are once again beginning to take back the reins of engagement, and I say go for it…it will be one of the most romantic gestures you can ever hope to pull off!

So, if you are looking at wowing the woman of your dreams with a ring she will love, there are a few easy steps you can take to get the ball rolling:

1. Take notice of her taste.  Does she like simple designs or extravagant? Bold or understated? Traditional or contemporary?

2. Find a good jeweller. Whether it is a custom made engagement ring, or an off-the-shelf piece, your jeweller will talk to you about designs, metals, fit, stones, and so on.

3. Be a little bit sneaky. You will need to find out her finger size, so some detective work may be necessary…ask one of her friends to help you, or ‘borrow’ an existing ring as a guide, just don’t get caught!

Are you thinking of popping the question the old school way?  Did I awaken your inner romantic?

I’d love to hear your thoughts, and I’m happy to answer any questions on the topic.

Below are some examples of my engagement rings, however if you would like to enquire about a custom made design please contact me to request a quote.
