Establish Your Budget
This is an emotional event and a purchase that will last a lifetime. According to the generally accepted convention a man should spend approximately two months salary on a diamond engagement ring. Although most men agree with this recommendation, we recommend you do not commit yourself to a amount right away but rather familiarise yourself with all of your options before deciding how much to spend.
Choose the Ring She'll love
Discovering what kind of ring she likes can be a challenge if you want to keep your proposal a secret. There are however some secret methods for discovering her taste in engagement rings.
- See what style of jewellery she wears and think how the engagement ring will match with it.
- See what colour and type of metal your partner prefers.
- Ask her family and close friends for tips, probably she has mentioned her preferences to them.
- Ensure the ring will be practical for everyday wear.
