The look on her eyes when you get down on one knee and pop that perfect ring, priceless.
Choosing an engagement ring has always been a frightening task for most men, and with uncertainty often follows the what-ifs, what if she doesn’t like the engagement ring, what if it doesn’t fit, what if its the wrong cut, wrong size, etc. To avoid any unwanted mistakes we see couples opt to buy the ring together, thus making sure she’ll love the ring, after all she’s going to wear that ring for the rest of her life right?? Well dear readers, I could not disagree more. Buying an engagement ring should be a man’s job; getting that ring is a testament to how much faith she has in you and how well you know the person you are about to marry.
What about faith? What does trust have to do with buying an engagement ring? Giving a man freedom to choose the engagement ring shows how much trust the woman has in him, but of course one can argue the woman has a lot at stake here, not only she has to wear it, but she also has to show it around like a trophy. Thats a petty reason don’t you think? Trust me, when you picked the right man, he will get you that perfect ring.
good things don’t come easy neither does your fiancé’s hand in marriage
Picking out a gift always carries a risk whether it’d be the perfect gift or it would end up in the storage room, but you rarely take that person along and pick out the gift together; it’s a matter of how well you know that person. Why should it be any different when you are buying an engagement ring? It is our duty as a man to know exactly what your fiancé wants, well thats the hard part isn’t it? Figuring it out needs effort and resourcefulness.
There are countless written articles out there about how to pick out the perfect ring, information about what kind of metal, 4c’s, conflict free diamonds, style, size, etc. Get some ideas from her siblings, best friends, cousins, do not be shy to ask around, just make sure that person does not spill the surprise. When you have done all that, you are bound to have an idea what she likes, after all good things don’t come easy neither does your fiancé’s hand in marriage.
This may sound old fashion but for me finding that perfect engagement ring is part of the proposal itself; the look on her eyes when you get down on one knee and pop that perfect ring, priceless.
