The time has come: you want to ask your girlfriend to spend the rest of her life with you. What a thrill! As you may know, this situation is not alike to anything you have experienced before. Chances are that ever since you were little you had seen, been part of, or simply heard about the proposal situation, this magical ritual that has been a tradition for so many generations in which the gent who has decided to spend the rest of his life at her side finally pops the eminent question, down on his knees with a marvelous engagement ring on his hands, demonstrating a gesture of love and commitment, while at the end of the proposal, family and friends are waiting to share the incredible moment. Ahh, what a romantic scenario. But wait… this whole proposal has truly seemed easy as a, b, c, isn’t it? Many women, regardless of age, have a day fixed in their minds without knowing exactly the date on the calendar: the day she will be asked marriage. Even their heartbeats race imagining a thousand ways they wish to be surprised on that day. However, when the moment comes, all men find themselves in the overwhelming situation of seeking the perfect engagement ring. Basically the dream proposal consists in three elements:
(A) The man picks the perfect ring.
(B) The proposal is a total surprise.
(C) The woman says yes.
Have you already pictured your dream proposal?
Once you found the woman of your dreams, the one you know quite well, love and worship, trust her, have a stable relationship that has lasted long enough, then the next step would be planning your marriage proposal. If you already have given a lot of thought to how to do it, yet you haven’t thought much what you are going to do it with, I will give you a short guide of common mistakes before and at the moment of the engagement ring purchase, so you can have a clear vision of what you should not do. Of course, if you happen to be the heir to your mother’s or grandmother’s engagement ring then all the stars must be aligned for you! But if you're in this situation completely on your own then you should stick to your reading because after all, when else will you shop for such an important piece of jewelry? So, you should look for the one just for her.
- Focusing too severely on the prize
We know there is no reason not to take care of the investment being made at the time you purchase such a jewel with a considerable value. Although in a matter of short time you might be caught between two stools: picking a bargain-priced but low-quality piece or an exceptional ring with a heavy price tag. Try to make the most rational decision you can after having examine the quality of the piece for what it is valued, and acquire only what you can afford, do not let the emotion (or pressure) win over your purchase because your bank account might resent it.
- Not picking a piece according to her tastes
In fact, this point should be top on the list. If only the first prize was given to the one person who made this mistake, thousands of men would head the list. Doing enough personal research into what she likes is the common denominator of your purchase since the moment you start looking for the engagement ring you will notice that there are plenty of options to choose. I want to be brutally honest with you; you cannot pick out the perfect ring unless you know exactly what she likes, so please keep in mind a piece that goes perfectly with her tastes. You have no idea how many factors come along with the selection of a ring (material/shape/texture/style/color…to name a few) for which you might require good helping of a professional.
- Not relying on a reputable jeweler
Finding a reputable jewelry specialist is a must. Too often people lean much more on the options offered by internet, which is great as an initial search- still there is a lot of misinformation that might lead you to make a risky purchase. Give yourself time to visit a jeweler in order to guide you through your buying process; the jeweler would teach you about the types of cuts, qualities rings, metal, and clarity of diamonds, the stone carats and style. This will truly help you make a better thought out decision, and save some money.
- Not defining the size of the ring
Whoa. Planning the perfect proposal to end up realizing that the ring has run a little loose, or that it does not even fits her finger, can totally be the bane of any man. Please don’t let this even happen to your friends because it is an unconceivable moment for a couple to find out that such a precious jewel and (of course, not cheap at all) has fallen off the hand of their fiancée. If you won’t ask your girlfriend to go with you, I highly suggest you to take her to choose a very trendy jewelry set that includes a ring, or to avoid suspicious take a trusted sister or friend of hers ring-shopping (Don’t ask your male friends please…bad, bad idea).
Unfortunately these slips occur more often than you could imagine, making the most special day on the life of a couple become an overwhelming situation, not just for the future fiancé but even to her.
