How do you know what kind of engagement ring to get your partner? 

Cupid’s Advice:

Thinking of getting engaged? Congratulations! Now how the heck do you decide which engagement ring to choose from? Here are some tips on how to pick the perfect ring for your partner:

1. Ask around: Chances are that your partner has spilled to her fellow gal pals or her family members what kind of diamond she is hoping for. Be discreet with your asking and make sure your helpers’ lips are sealed, but do some investigating and find out if she has been discussing what she likes in rings with her friends and family.

2. Drop hints: Purposely walk past a jewelry store and see if anything in particular catches your partner’s eye. Perhaps bring her alone with a guy friend of yours who is planning on getting engaged to see what she would suggest. Try not to be too revealing about your intentions, though.

3. Do your homework: Look into her own jewelry box and see if she has any rings or other type of gems. Take a look at what the pieces look like as a whole — is there a pattern between the pieces? Perhaps she likes white gold more than yellow gold for instance.
