Cupid’s Advice:

When it’s time to put a ring on it, the biggest question is what the ring is going to look like. You found the right partner, now all you need is the right ring. Here are some ways to help figure out the perfect one:

1. Sneak a peak at her jewelry: Look at the other jewelry your partner is wearing to give a sense of what they like. Is it mostly gold, are there a lot of jewels or sparkles? What is their favorite gem? Or are the jewelry pieces simple? This can give you an idea of what they prefer as to what they’d never be seen wearing.

2. Figure out the ring size: It’s not the worst situation if you put the ring on your partner’s finger and it doesn’t fit, but it makes for a bother to bring it back and get it adjusted. Have a close friend of theirs ask about the ring size, and make sure you can find a ring in that size. It also may help narrow the ring selection when you’re searching!

3. Let them pick: If you really are unsure, maybe your partner has a better idea. Get engaged first, and pick the ring out later. What type of ring have they always imagined being placed on their left finger? Let them get the chance to choose. This way, your partner is happy with the choice, and you are happy because they are.
