Choosing the perfect engagement ring can be stressful and it's important to get it right. If you're about to get down on one knee or have discussed the possibility of getting engaged, the “small” matter of the ring has probably been playing on your mind.
There are so many different options to choose from, with different designs as well as a range of metals and precious stones on offer, so it's not surprising that some people feel overwhelmed. Whatever ring you choose, the big question remains: should you go ahead and buy a beautiful ring before you propose, or should you hang on and select a suitable one together?
When you get down on one knee, you'll want to make sure that everything is perfect, from the setting and the food and wine to your outfit. But the most crucial thing is the ring.
Some people choose to buy the ring before they ask the big question, using their future fiancée's existing jewellery to guide the choice of size or style. This can be a great idea if you're keen to keep your engagement plans a secret and if you already have a clear idea of the right ring.
Platinum engagement rings really have the wow factor, making them the ideal choice if you want to surprise your partner with a stunning piece of jewellery when you pop the question. If you're not sure which ring would be best for your fiancée, why not hang on and choose your ring together? Platinum engagement rings are a lifetime investment, so it pays to make sure that you are both happy with the one that you pick. It's also important that your engagement ring looks right with your wedding band, so you may want to start talking about jewellery for the big day before you splash out on an engagement ring.
Gold and platinum wedding rings are both popular choices and either can be teamed very effectively with stylish platinum engagement rings. Plain 4mm platinum wedding rings look effortlessly elegant nestling against a dainty platinum engagement ring, while the contrast with a gold wedding band can really offset your engagement ring beautifully for a combination which makes a statement. Whatever your future fiancée's style, you're sure to find plenty of perfect platinum engagement rings. So whether you want to surprise her with a stunning ring or select a suitable piece together, you won't go wrong with this ultra-precious metal.
