Cupid’s Advice:

Purchasing an engagement ring for (hopefully) your bride-to-be can be nerve wrecking. Here are some ways to know what type of style to get:

1. Ask around: Chances are that your girlfriend has gushed to her girlfriends and her mother/grandmother what type of rock she is hoping to land. Don’t be afraid to ask for help as long as you do so discreetly.

2. Plant some evidence: Purposely pass by a jewelry store and see what type of ring lights up your partner’s eyes. Flip through some wedding magazines together to get a better idea of what she is looking for. 

3. Do your homework: Research the different types of cuts and styles of the rings to be able to eliminate them more easily. See what type of ring settings she has already to know what her personal taste is.
