When it comes to buying an engagement ring, there are no specific rules, and at the end of the day, there is only one thing that counts: that your partner answers yes when you pop the question. Therefore, whether you decide that your family or friends should be there or not when buying the engagement ring is really a personal choice.
- Knowing what you and your partner like and don’t like
- Being specific when asking questions to your loved ones
- Why not bring your partner with you?
Knowing what you and your partner like and don’t like
Bringing your loved ones or friends when looking at buying an engagement ring can be either very helpful or not as much depending on where you stand. For instance: if you clearly know what you wish to buy or maybe you were lucky your partner dropped some very useful hints to you as to which designs they really like. In these particular cases, we think that loved ones and friends are not a necessity per se, but they would be great just as moral support.
If on the other hand you are insecure or undecided, then their presence can be useful as they can guide you in choosing the best engagement ring that represents your relationship and your love for your partner. Having a second opinion sometimes really helps you clear your mind and make the final choice.
Being specific when asking questions to your loved ones
One thing that is very important once you are ready and have decided to buy the engagement ring, is to ask the right questions and be specific. That really helps your loved ones narrow down their choices and it avoids going off on unnecessary tangents that can become a waste of precious time.
Ask questions where you compare two designs, different metals or two to three different shapes of stone, so that you can find clarity in the whole decision-making process.
Why not bring your partner with you?
Nowadays, it is becoming quite common for couples to choose and buy their engagement ring together. In fact, according to a 2017 Jewelry and Engagement study by the XO Group, 1 in 3 couples have reported buying the engagement ring together. That is due to various reasons. Couples often make the decision of getting married with each other and face the expenses together. Choosing the perfect engagement ring and wedding bands to represent their relationship and their love is just another step they decide to embrace as one.
Furthermore, should the day you actually buy the engagement ring together become the proposal, then you should definitely bring your loved ones and friends so that you can celebrate it all at the same time.
