The rocky relationship between The Bachelor’s Brad Womack and Emily Maynard may have finally reached an impasse.  People reports that last weekend, Maynard, 25, was spotted without the engagement ring Womack, 38, presented to her in the show’s finale.  The two released a statement in March, saying: “It has been a bumpy couple of months for us, and our priority right now is to focus on our relationship.”

How do you know what engagement ring to choose for your partner?

Cupid’s Advice:

If you want her to say “yes,” start out by getting her the right ring!  Cupid has some tips on how to know what engagement ring is right for your partner:

1. Ask for help: Poll her friends and family (swearing them to secrecy, of course) about what kind of ring she’d want.  They can at least steer you in the right direction.

2. Think about her taste: What kind of jewelry does she like to wear?  Pay attention to whether she likes gold or silver and over-the-top or understated pieces.

3. Go with your gut: Buy the ring that feels right, the one you can see yourself proposing with and see her wearing for the rest of her life.
