Planning to Propose this Year? Need an Engagement Ring?
Obviously, one of the most important parts of a great proposal is the engagement ring. If you want to keep with the theme and include some Valentines related elements into your engagement ring, here are some design ideas to consider:
- Heart shaped diamond ring: One of the easiest ways to include a Valentines theme is to include a heart shaped diamond. This can be in the form of a single diamond or a collection of smaller diamonds that create a diamond shape.
- Add rubies: Rubies are the king of gemstones. They are a reddish color and represent love, wisdom, and health. They also fit perfectly with a valentines theme. A popular trend today is to include colored gemstones in your engagement ring design. You can include them as accents or as your main stone.
- Add a floral motif: Floral designs are popular and a great way to stay on theme. Use your partner’s favorite flower as part of the rings design.
Don’t forget to finish things off with a heart shaped engagement ring box. Once you have the ring, you also need to think about how you are going to ask. Less is more. Keeping things simple is preferred by most women. The study found that 51% of women believe that just saying “will you marry me?” is the perfect way to ask. So don’t worry about coming up with some elaborate scheme – just plan something personal and from the heart.
