Planning to pop the question
to the love of your life? If so, you may be feeling the pressure.

That’s where we come in to save the day. We’re here to help you choose the perfect dazzler to suit your better half with our top five tips. Keep reading and you’ll find the ring of her dreams in no time.
1. Research Her Style
Our first piece of engagement ring advice is to research your girlfriend’s style well. How to do this?
Observe the type of jewellery she wears. Does she prefer gold jewellery? Or maybe she wears a lot of silver?
Maybe there’s a stone she wears a lot, such as her birthstone
. In that case, she may prefer that stone than a more traditional diamond.
By looking at what she wears often, choosing an engagement ring becomes a whole lot easier.
2. Consider the Band
Likewise, there may be a type of band she wears often. When engagement ring shopping you have a big selection of metals to choose from
for the band. Common choices include yellow gold, rose gold, white gold, platinum, and silver.
Again, look at what types of metals she usually wears to have a better understanding.

3. Choose a Colour She Loves
Whether you’re choosing a diamond
or a different stone, engagement rings come in all different colours.
You should know her favourite colour, so perhaps she’ll appreciate a ring in that shade? Or maybe she’ll prefer a more classic look, with a white-coloured diamond? This is the most popular ring colour for a traditional look.
4. Select a Carat Weight

Depending on your partner’s tastes (and your budget) you’ll need to consider the carat weight of the engagement ring. Of course, the heavier the stone, the more the diamond will cost.
However, many women prefer a elegant style diamond that doesn’t weigh their hand down. It all comes down to tastes.
5. Pick a Shape
When picking an engagement ring, you’ll also want to choose a shape your partner will love. Again, this is all down to preference, but some of the popular cuts include round, princess, and teardrop.
