I Let My Soon To Be Fiance Choose Her Own Engagement Ring. Yes, you read that right!

Engagement proposals are extra special moments. What makes these moments even more special is the engagement ring that their special someone would wear for the rest of their life. If you're planning on proposing to the love of your life and if you're ready to get them an engagement ring, I have a fantastic advice. Involve your special someone when purchasing an engagement ring.

"How do I sneakily get her ring size?"

"Will she like the design that I'll be choosing for her?"

"Does she like a big diamond or a smaller diamond with higher quality? Or mix of both?"

"What happens if it's not the perfect ring? What if the ring size is wrong?"

"Should I go for a lab grown diamond or an earth mined diamond?"

"Does she like yellow gold or white gold?"


These are some of the few common questions guys have when shopping for an engagement ring the customary way. But hey! Why not try something different? Times have changed and after all we are now in the 21st century. Getting a ring together as a couple is not just a brilliant idea, but it also has its own advantages. Below are some of the few advantages when deciding for an engagement ring together.


1. Saves You All The Stress

Buying an engagement ring means you have to get that perfect piece of engagement ring that your special someone would wear everyday for the rest of their entire life. This can probably cause you a ton of stress. After all, the amount of money when buying an engagement ring is not like buying flowers or a Sunday date night dinner. With the endless options for earth mined diamonds and lab grown diamonds, rubies, emeralds, sapphires and other colored gemstones available in the market, deciding which one can be headache. Shop for the engagement ring with your partner and spend time together contemplating over various ring designs, earth mined diamond and lab grown diamond options, stone sizes and shapes, and stone colors. Involving your partner when shopping for an engagement ring is not a sign of weakness, but an indication that you care about their preferences. After all, she's the one who's going to wear it everyday for the rest of her life and you just want her to have the best ring possible. 


2. A Meaningful, Memorable Experience Together

Deciding an engagement ring with your partner is going to be an enjoyable and romantic time together as a couple. You can browse together online for ring designs, earth mined diamond and lab grown diamond options and get to know more(and laugh) about each others preferences. 


3. Time and Money Saver

When it comes to big purchases like buying an engagement ring, it's definitely for the best. Couples nowadays are more practical. What if you're special someone prefers a bigger lab grown diamond instead of a smaller earth mined diamond? Price for a lab grown diamond ring could be 25-40% less to its earth mined diamond counterpart depending on the carat size. Wouldn't it be a time and money saver if you purchase an engagement ring together? 


Sure, the engagement proposal won't be a 100% surprise, but purchasing an engagement ring together will be an unforgettable experience together. Do you want your special someone to have her dream ring? Get her involved and let her choose. I did. And she's very happy about it.
