Stealthily Research Your Fiancé Engagement Ring Style

Stealthily Research Your Fiancé Engagement Ring Style
Bring a mutual friend along when making your ring choice to assist with style.
Secretly research engagement ring style. It may not be easy, but neither is it a mission impossible. Here are some tips to buying the engagement ring she wants.
Peel your eyes. Sharpen your senses. This is a clandestine operation and you are going to need to pull on all the secret intelligence you can muster. Determining his or her style is absolutely critical. Just give yourself plenty of time and plan out your strategy. If possible, recruit another agent—a trusted mutual friend or family member. The first step is easy enough: it requires only pure observational skill.

Over time, with keen observation and some careful planning, you can get a very good sense of exactly what style that will make the perfect surprise engagement ring.

Determine what jewelry your partner likes…
When she or he is going out with you or friends, what jewelry is worn? Silver, gold? White metals are the most popular choice today—maybe the preference is the pureness platinum or palladium. Maybe he or she likes the blend of two-tone metals, or the radiant beauty of solid 18K gold?

Here are some questions to also consider in context to style. Does she wear large pieces that stand out, or small pieces that are understated—like a simple diamond stud or a birthstone earring? Is he the type who would wear a renaissance style ring that would look just right on the Game of Thrones? Does she like ornate designs with cultural, ethnic or symbols and images from the natural world? Or does he prefer simple straight lines and elements that just blend in? Does she favor the simple and elegant or the bold and glitzy, like a character on the old TV series, Dallas? Does he like a statement or understatement with his jewelry?
Perhaps your partner is someone who works with her hands a lot, an earthy person—such a person would want the gemstone set low in a more understated design.

What are the personality factors? Is he someone who would want to make a display of his large rock to the public, or rather prefers subtlety?

Make a mental note, form a theory and then test it out with a few trusted friends who can keep information top secret.

Another option: You or a friend can take your partner into a jewelry store under some false pretenses. You say, "I’m looking for a gift for my mother or cufflinks for my Dad." As you wander about the men’s stuff, see what she does. Rings have a particular gravitational force and your partner will head over to look at them.

That’s when you make a strategic comment— "Hey Honey, that one looks pretty nice." See how he reacts. Let that bit of information burn into your mind indelibly. Then… go back to what you were doing before.

Over time, with keen observation and some careful planning, you can get a very good sense of exactly what style that will make the perfect surprise engagement ring. It may not be easy, but neither is it a mission impossible.
