If you are hoping to propose to your girlfriend and want to keep this a surprise, picking out the perfect wedding ring can be daunting. There are a few things that you can do to narrow down your girlfriend's likes and hopefully pick the perfect ring. Here are four sneaky ways you can work to pick the best wedding ring for your proposal.
1. Involve Her Friends and Family
If you can trust her friends and family to keep your upcoming proposal a secret, these are the best people to ask for advice. Friends and sisters will know your girlfriend's taste and you might even find out that they have been talking about wedding rings for years. This will get you started on initial ring shopping. Once you narrow down your search, you can involve them in final picks if you still aren't sure.
2. Look at Public Interest and Social Media Sites
If your girlfriend is on site where one can tag interests and like, she just might have some hints when it comes to jewelry. Take a peek at public interest boards she subscribes to and see if you can find any clues when it comes to jewelry. Some girls might have an entire page dedicated to wedding rings that that are actually hoping you will find for this very reason.
3. Listen Up for Hints
Your girlfriend might be dropping hints left and right that you just aren't picking up on. Make sure to keep an ear on girl talk and pay attention when your girlfriend comments and compliments others on their jewelry. This can help you learn her tastes and ultimately make selecting a ring easier. She might just be dropping hints innocently or strategically. Either way, pay attention if it will help you with your ring choices.
4. Bring Her on a Jewelry Shopping Trip for Someone Else
Another sneaky way to learn more about your girlfriend's tastes is to ask them to come along with you to buy jewelry for your mom or sister. While this might not hone in on wedding rings specifically, you might learn about her tastes in jewelry styles and preferences when it comes to types of metals.
Proposing to the love of your life can be stressful, but it should also be exciting. Try to do what you can to take the guesswork out of finding the perfect wedding ring. If you want to keep your proposal a surprise, you might have to be a little sneaky, but this will be worth it in the end.
