Should Couples Go Engagement Ring Shopping Together

Traditionally, the man buys the engagement ring to surprise his significant other with a proposal. Yet, more and more couples today are choosing to shop for engagement rings together. Our team of experts would be more than happy to help you choose from our exceptional engagement rings, whether you arrive at our store alone or with the love of your life.

Buying an engagement ring is a big first step toward the altar, which means there can be a lot of pressure. So, right off the bat, we want you to follow these three steps before you start your shopping quest.

Step 1: The first thing we want you to do is to pause, take a deep breath, and relax. Remember that choosing to worry or be stressed out never adds a single hour to your day.

Step 2: Pause, for the second time, and be thankful… Realize how fortunate you are to have found the love of your life. There are literally billions of people on this earth, and out of all of them, you found the person you want to share your life with. Cherish this thought.

Step 3: Lastly, we want you to know that we are here to help you in the process of selecting the perfect ring for the love of your life. When you visit our store, you will be in good hands. Our very knowledgeable team of experts will put your needs first, and will make sure that your shopping experience is relaxing, enjoyable, and very special. We treat each of our guests like family, making sure to thoroughly answer each question so you never feel rushed. Let’s check out the benefits of visiting our jewelry store alone versus with your bride-to-be.

Choose a Ring She’ll Love

Aren’t sure what your girlfriend would like? You may want to bring her with you to shop for engagement rings. That way, she’ll be able to point out the styles she loves. Unless your girlfriend has been dropping subtle hints about what rings she likes, this may be the only way you get this type of information directly from the source.

There are as many engagement ring styles as there are stars in the sky. We can help you choose from different cuts, carat weights, band materials, and other factors that will affect the look of your engagement ring. Our team can even help you design a custom engagement ring if you have a specific idea of what you want. We also offer gorgeous engagement rings from Tacori and Verragio.

Don’t want to ruin the surprise of a proposal? Keep in mind that there are other ways to find out your girlfriend’s unique style. Try asking her mom, sister, or best friend what styles she likes. You may also look at the types of jewelry she wears now to get a better idea of what she’d like in an engagement ring.

Keep Your Proposal a Surprise

Most men shop for engagement rings by themselves so they can surprise their significant others when they propose. Yet, shopping together doesn’t mean you can’t propose the way you want. Even if she helps choose her engagement ring, she still won’t know exactly when, where, or how you’ll propose.

Do What’s Right For You

Each couple is different. If you and your girlfriend have already talked about getting married, it may not be such a leap to go shopping for engagement rings together. Also, remember that shopping for engagement rings doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing experience. You can always ask your girlfriend to leave once you narrow it down to two or three rings. That way, she won’t know the exact engagement ring you choose.

Shopping for an engagement ring can be a surprise you plan yourself or an experience you share with your significant other. No matter what you choose, we’ll be more than happy to help you select an engagement ring you’ll both love.
