How To Find An Engagement Ring She’ll Love

You're at the point in your life where you’ve found the girl but now you need the ring. You have found the woman you adore and you are ready to plan the big proposal. Now all you need is the perfect engagement ring that she’ll love and cherish for the rest of her life.

Would she like a princess-cut, cushion-cut, or a round-cut type of diamond? Is she more the classic style gal, or would she prefer more of a vintage-style engagement ring? What color of engagement and wedding band is her favorite - gold, platinum, rose gold, or white gold? If you feel overloaded with questions, then you have come to the right place. The jewelry experts at Ben Garelick Jewelers in Buffalo, New York, have the best tips for you on how to find an engagement ring that she’ll love.

Stalk Her Pinterest

You know she’s got one. She’s probably been building a wedding Pinterest board since she was old enough to get on a computer. If she hasn’t already gawked over Pinterest in front of you before and you have no idea what we’re talking about, Pinterest is a virtual visual bulletin board. On Pinterest, you can save or “pin” images and ideas to your personal account. Start there. She'll likely share it with you if you ask. The goal of analyzing her Pinterest account is to get an idea of her overall style and taste. This is perfect for you because her Pinterest is something she has curated to her own style. It’s an entire platform full of things she likes.

If you can’t find one named “wedding,” look for even a more specific Pinterest board named something creative like:

  • Put a Ring On It
  • You Make Me Wanna Say I Do
  • Ring Inspo
  • Forever & Always

Look at those boards because they are focused on jewelry types and styles that she admires. These will give an idea of her overall style and some inspiration for a ring she would adore.

Look At The Jewelry She Already Has

Look at the jewelry your girlfriend is already wearing and owns. The goal here is to establish the right band and boldness for her engagement ring. To decide what kind of wedding band she’ll like, take note of what she owns the most of - gold or silver jewelry. If she owns more yellow gold jewelry than silver, she would probably like a rose gold or yellow band. If she tends to wear more silver jewelry then she would probably like a white gold or platinum band.

To decide what level of boldness or simplicity of ring she would like best, see if she tend to wear big pieces of jewelry or if she more often wears subtle pieces. If she likes to wear statement jewelry, get her a ring that is more flashy, bigger and more unique. If she wears minimal and simple jewelry, get her a ring that is clean and more subtle. Have a flashy fiance but are balling on a budget? Consider an alternative center stone, like a moissanite or morganite.

Go To A Jewelry Store Together

Casually of course. Go to the mall together and go into any department store that sells jewelry and notice what type of jewelry she tends to linger by the longest and if she touches or picks up anything in particular. From this, you may be able to tell if she likes gold or silver jewelry, bold or simple jewelry.

Ask Her Friends Or Family

By asking one of her close friends or family members, you will be able to creatively ask her what type of ring she would want without directly asking her. You will need to gather pictures of rings that you think your girlfriend would like. And then have that friend or family member show her the pictures saying something like “My friend from college just got engaged, look at the ring. What do you think?” Then that friend or family member will get back to you on what she said. You will have more details about what type of ring she would want.
