You have started to fell the vibes on the air. You feel that the time for the next step in your relationship is really close, and he is about to bend the knee and pop the question. And then a thought that makes you chill… “How is he gonna pick the right ring?”.
Beside the classic – let all the friends, sister, even my mother knows what are my favorite engagement rings are- strategy, there are some tactics to send the right messages. And no, we don’t mean, to randomly leave engagement rings catalogues on your coffee table, high lightening the rings you love the most. Trust us, men can turn them into coasters and you will both lose your catalogues and a very good opportunity to get him on the right path. Start taking notes…
Right timing is everything
If you feel that he is comfortable, talking for your future, trust us he will be as mush comfortable to talk engagement rings as well. So, don’t be afraid, just talk!
Give him examples
When he least expects it. “How amazing is Meghan Markle’s engagement ring?” or “I really don’t like colorful stones like the one William gave to Kate”, or use examples from your own friends!
Ask his opinion
Obviously, his taste is amazing – I mean he chose you to spend his life with – but, because men are not to be trusted with those kind of issues, you might want to ask his opinion. While checking a magazine, show him a random ring and ask him what he thinks. That’s how you will know if he in on the right track or you need to intervene.
Respect his budget
Bottom line, his is paying. And they don’t all have the same budget. You might be dreaming huge rocks and diamonds but that doesn’t mean that your beau can live up to this dream. So, respect his budget and make him realize that what really matters is the fact that you are going to spend the rest of your lives together. And who knows? Results may surprise you!
Never ever forget the real meaning
NEVER FORGET that the ring is just a symbol, of a once in a lifetime promise. It doesn’t matter if it big, small, expensive or stunning. He loves you, he wants you close to him, he wants to build a family with you and the fact that he finds the courage to ask you all these, is worth many more that any engagement ring out there!
Instead, all these, don’t bother that much. Keep saving images, pinning on Pinterest, sharing with your friends and be patient. Because when that moment comes, probably you won’t be able to see your engagement ring behind all of these tears! 😀
