Once you have decided you have finally found the person you want to marry, it is time to start shopping for the perfect engagement ring. However, as this is a ring your partner will likely wear for the rest of their lives, the task of picking the ideal piece can feel daunting, especially if you want to keep the ring a secret until your proposal. Our experts at Lenox Jewelers are here to help you find the ring that will melt their heart.

Consider Their Personality

First and foremost, you want to select a ring that suits your partner’s personality. Seek out a ring that reminds you of them. Are they the life of the party? Choose a piece that is a true showstopper. Or perhaps they are more laid back and unassuming, so a simple solitaire ring with a stunning center stone would be more fitting.

You, as their future spouse, should know their personality better than anyone. Use this knowledge to your advantage when engagement ring shopping.

Check Their Current Jewelry Collection

Observe and perhaps secretly peruse their current fashion jewelry collection, especially the pieces they wear most often. Take note of the type of metal they tend towards, and choose an engagement ring in that metal type. This way, you can be certain the ring will fit in easily with their favorite accessories.

You will also want to take note of the types of silhouettes and details they have a preference for. For instance, do they have a lot of elaborate, sprawling pieces, or understated, minimalistic ones? Do they like deeply detailed pieces or ones with fewer elements? Bring all of these insights into your local jewelry store, and they are certain to be able to help you narrow down your options.

Enlist the Help of Friends and Family

Perhaps you want to find out whether or not your partner already has an idea in mind of the kind of engagement ring they want. Communicate with those closest to them: their best friends, siblings, parents, etc. and have them ask your partner some information-gathering, but not too obvious, questions.

This is a phenomenal way to glean insight, but make sure you only trust this task and information with a few choice people, so you can be sure the surprise of the upcoming proposal will not be accidentally spoiled.

Peruse Their Social Media

You can really learn a lot about a person from the contents of their social media pages, not just the things they post, but the accounts they follow and reshare. See if you can find jewelry brands they follow or engagement ring posts that they have liked or shared.

If you are really lucky, you may find that your partner has an old Pinterest or Tumblr full of photos of engagement ring inspiration. This would certainly be an invaluable asset to have in your shopping process.
