While any woman who adores you would be absolutely thrilled to receive a proposal of marriage, she may not be so taken with your choice of engagement ring if you don’t take the time to select one especially for her. With all the rings available today, buying the perfect one for your big moment can be confusing, but it doesn’t have to be. Here are some tips for how to choose the ideal engagement ring based on your girlfriend’s personal style, including her clothing, hair and decor. Of course, every woman is an individual, but chances are, your future wife leans more towards one of these three style types.
This woman is the model of efficiency, whether she’s managing a gallery show or training for a marathon. Her wardrobe and her home are unfussy and often cutting edge, a point where fashion meets high tech. If her hair isn’t pulled back in a ponytail, it’s probably cut short, maybe in a new modern style. A single diamond in a simple setting will have the clean lines and avant garde look she’s sure to love.
The tailored classic girl likes simple lines with a nod to the past. Her closet might be a bit preppy, and in both her clothing and her furniture, she loves timeless investment pieces. She more than likely wears her hair long, in a smooth blowout or a neat bob. You can’t go wrong with an emerald cut diamond in a beautiful three-stone setting for her. A row of pave diamonds on the shank lends a little extra sparkle to this eternally cherished design.
If your girlfriend is on the old-fashioned side, she loves vintage clothing and yearns for a house full of antiques. She probably favors skirts and dresses over pants and is a fan of ruffles, lace and floral prints. Her hair is usually pinned up with a pretty comb or long and natural. She’ll feel like she just stepped out of an episode of her favorite period drama with a round cut diamond engagement ring set in an intricate basket.
Buying the perfect engagement ring doesn’t have to be a guessing game. Take the time to study your girlfriend’s personal style before you shop, and you’re sure to find a ring that will make her swoon with joy.
