Maybe he proposed in the moment without a ring. Or maybe he knows you’d love to help pick it out.
Or maybe, you and your partner quietly decided it was time. Not every couple needs a big gesture to take the next step. In a beautiful moment, the two of you reached the conclusion that you intend to share the rest of your lives together. And we love it!
So on to the shopping:
First things first, hit the displays. There’s no better way to do research than getting a chance to look at rings in person- and even better: try some on!
2. Work as a team
Keep this adventure balanced, and start to get a feel for what interests both of you. If he keeps pointing out white gold, consider how that metal looks with your skin tone. If you’re totally drawn to round diamonds, focus on what bands would match your cut.
It’s okay if you have different tastes, but it’s important that if you and your partner are picking out a ring together, you’re actually working together on this. Listen to his opinions, and make sure it feels special to both of you.

4. No drama

5. Have fun
Most importantly: HAVE FUN! You get the chance to do this together, and it should be a wonderful experience for both of you to choose a symbol of your love and commitment.
