Cupid’s Advice:

The ring is at the center of every engagement.  It’s the first thing people are going to ask about, so it’s important to make it special.  Cupid has some tips:

1. Originality: No one wants the same ring as someone else, especially a friend or family member.  That would be a disaster.  Make sure the ring you choose bears no resemblance to one belonging to someone close to your partner.

2. Your budget: Not everyone can afford 10 carats, and that’s okay.  Get something classy that your partner will cherish forever.

3. You partner’s taste: The type of jewelry you might like may not exactly be your partner’s taste.  Figure out a way to find out their preferences, whether that means asking them directly or polling their family and friends.
