A marriage proposal is one of the most important moments of your life. In addition to choosing the perfect place and the moment that meets your expectations, choosing the right ring is also crucial for a successful proposal.


According to a survey by an English insurance company, nearly 15% of married women are dissatisfied with their engagement ring. According to the same survey, one in three women would even consider refusing a marriage proposal if they do not like the engagement ring. Reason enough to pay special attention when buying one.

What are the factors to consider when choosing an engagement ring? Here are our tips to avoid choosing the wrong ring and, therefore, make a successful marriage proposal:

Choose the Engagement Ring Together

Choosing the engagement ring together is not the most romantic alternative, but it's the surest way to make sure you get the right one, especially if you're not familiar with your future fiancée’s taste. Women often have very specific ideas about what their ideal engagement ring should look like. Thus, sacrificing surprise in favour of choosing the perfect ring is often a very wise decision in the long run.

Don’t Half-Measure It

Previously, men spent on average three net salaries to purchase an engagement ring, easily reaching a four-digit number. Of course, the ring of your choice does not need to have the value of a small car, but it should stand out from other jewels. It's not about being pretentious, only it's a unique symbol for your lifetime commitment. In other words, an investment in your relationship! A diamond ring is almost always the right choice –– no other stones compare to the noble beauty of a diamond.

When in Doubt, Stick to the Classic Look

The engagement ring is meant to be worn everyday, and should fit any outfit, whether it's an elegant evening dress, a work outfit or a more casual ensemble. A classic design is, as a rule, the safest choice to avoid choosing the wrong engagement ring. Unless your beloved usually prefers a more luxurious look. With a beautiful diamond ring, you are sure to have a chic and tasteful jewel in any circumstance.

Use Her Other Jewellery for Inspiration

As mentioned before, the engagement ring must stand out from other jewellery. Take the time to browse through her other rings, bracelets and necklaces to get an idea of ​​her tastes and style.

And more importantly…

Pick the Right Size

For a successful marriage proposal, the ring must fit perfectly on your sweetheart's finger. You can find out her size discreetly by measuring a ring that has already been worn around her ring finger.
