So you’ve done the hard work – you’ve found the one, and you’re ready to ask the big question. Now all that’s left is finding the perfect engagement ring. Easy, right? Follow our advice and you’ll be able to pick the best engagement ring Sydney has to offer.
The Engagement Ring Spend
You’ve probably heard “spend 2 to 3 months of your wages on the ring” many times over. But this advice has been cast aside as unrealistic. Nowadays, the best advice is to be smart and spend what you can afford.
Size Things Up
Although you don’t need a tuxedo until the big day, this is your chance to think like James Bond. Your mission is to sneak into her jewellery collection, and borrow one of her rings. Once successful, take it to a jeweller to have it sized and returned before any suspicions have been raised. This is also a great time to start analysing what style of rings she likes.
Don’t Work Alone
If you’re struggling, find others to help. Family or friends – as long as they’re close to her, they’ll be honoured you’ve entrusted them with this secret!
Picking a style of engagement ring can affect you down the track – and not in any way you might be thinking! Your engagement ring might be so wonderful (and well done if this is the case) that she decides to find a wedding ring that will match. If you’re the type of couple likely to end up with wedding rings that match each other, this means you need to factor this in to the engagement ring selection. Don’t like rose gold for yourself? Maybe don’t choose it for her.
