TIP #1: PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO HER STYLE
Like a detective, you can pick up details about your fiancé-to-be by keeping a close eye on her wardrobe, jewelry and other accessories. Don’t be afraid to keep notes and ideas in an organized place like a notebook or spreadsheet. While fashion evaluation isn’t a science, watch for these common patterns:
She opts for simple fashion (i.e. jeans, leggings, solid-colored shirts). Her ring style is likely clean, minimal and without lots of ornamentation, like an Oval Solitaire Engagement ring.
She’s always dressed in the latest fashion and stays up-to-date with current trends. Consider the most popular rings along with the rings celebrities are wearing.
She gravitates toward vintage dresses and antique furniture.
She’s hands-on with her job or hobbies (i.e. sports, gardening, rock climbing). Choose a style with a low-set diamond vs. a cathedral or high-prong diamond. There will be less chance it will snag or be damaged.
She’s sentimental about items she received from grandma and other relatives. See if there’s a family heirloom that can be re-purposed for her engagement ring.
TIP #2: UTILIZE THE INTERNET
Many women (and men) have stored loads of information online—readily available for anyone to see. Pinterest accounts are a great place to start investigating, where she’s potentially saved engagement ring examples.
If you can’t find rings specifically, check out her other posts and images to see if they offer you clues about her style. Simply enter her name or username into the Pinterest search engine and you’ll have access to her dreams and visions.
TIP #3: INVOLVE THE WOMEN CLOSEST TO HER
Lean on the ladies who are closest to your fiancé-to-be: her mom, sister, best friend, cousin, whoever. Chances are your significant other has shared with them her desires or preferences for a ring. If they don’t know, you can have them bring up the conversation in a casual manner, such as, “Do you think he’s going to propose soon?” or “If he were to propose, what would you want?” Slowly easing into the conversation will make her less suspicious that you’ve put her up to the task.
You can even ask her mom or one of her friends to shop with you. Women are often skilled at narrowing down styles, especially if they know the person well. But be sure to be discrete in your meetings. She shouldn’t be clued in to the fact that you’re spending one-on-one time with your future mother-in-law.
TIP #4: ANALYZE HER OTHER JEWELRY
You can discern quite a few clues from the jewelry in her current collection. Does she wear silver-colored necklaces? Does she have rings and bracelets in yellow gold? Do her pieces tend to be classic with diamonds and pearls or ones with colored gemstones? You can even pretend you’re thinking of buying her a bracelet or a set of earrings, and see if you can glean information about the type of metal or settings she prefers.
You can also find out clues from jewelry other women have received. For example, if a recent Facebook friend got engaged, bring it up nonchalantly in conversation. Try to include a question regarding if she liked the ring. You’ll get some key information about the proposal she might envision, and type of ring she likes or doesn’t like.
TIP #5: ASK HER!
If you’ve tried the methods above, and you feel that a surprise engagement ring is not your style (or hers), then feel free to ask her directly about what she’s hoping for. From the type of gemstone (diamond or otherwise) to the setting color to the overall style, you’ll have all of the specs to go on.
From there, the ring design and selection can be your own, if you want. She’ll be wearing the ring for the rest of her life, so follow her leads. Overall, do what’s comfortable for you and what you think she’ll most appreciate.
If you do ask her for details on what she wants, you’ll need to defer to those preferences. Even if it’s not your style or preference, you should stick with what she has told you. Although you’re paying for the ring, she’s the one that it’s ultimately for.
