The engagement ring is about her. Therefore, it’s important to focus on the ring elements that she likes, even if you are not totally fond of her diamond cut preferences.
- SAYING “NO” WHEN SHE WANTS TO COME WITH YOU
We know that you probably want the proposal to be a surprise, but the truth is that more and more couples are engagement ring shopping together. It is becoming a more personalized couple’s experience where they design the ring together. Even though she knows she is getting the ring, you can still make the proposal and how you pop the question a surprise.
I can even help you add a little “extra” to the ring to give her an unexpected surprise when she sees finished engagement ring for the first time.
- NOT SETTING A BUDGET
One of the most common mistakes guys make when shopping for an engagement ring in Toronto is not taking the budget seriously. It’s not only important to choose a budget, but you also need to ensure you choose a budget that makes financial sense for you. Remember – you are going to have a wedding to pay for in the near future.
