Throughout history, men are usually in charge of finding the perfect Engagement Ring—from searching for inspiration, comparing options, and making the final purchase. Instead of asking their partners, men consult other females within her close network (mom, sisters, best friends) to help them make the right choice. After all, the proposal is supposed to be a surprise, right? 🤔

Well, these past couple of years, we are seeing a significant change in this tradition.

Engagement Ring Shopping as a Couple 👩🏻‍❤️‍👨🏻

In the US, "62% of couples now go engagement ring shopping together," says Brides. We are seeing this similar trend here in the country as well. But what are the benefits of going to jewellery showrooms with your better half? 

Pros 

  • She can tell you the exact stone and setting she loves, along with her ring size. By going together, there is no more need for guessing!
  • It will deepen your understanding as you learn each other's priorities when making an important purchase—like an Engagement Ring.

Cons

  • Doing so will take away the element of surprise. A good compromise is to keep other proposal details, like the date and time, a secret.

But Really, What do Women Want? 💍

According to Cosmo, "they want some input but also like to be surprised. 79% of respondents said they told their partners what kind of ring they wanted before they got engaged, but only 43% said they actually knew what their ring would look like."

What does this mean for men? Your partner definitely has a preference for her Engagement Ring. After all, it is a brilliant piece that she'll want to wear forever. So, it would be great to ask for her inputs directly or indirectly through her closest friends and family. 

However, a lot of women still want to be taken by surprise when it's time to ask the big question. You may involve her in ring shopping, but never for proposal planning!

To Go or Not to Go Together? 💭

At the end of the day, it all boils down to your unique relationship. Some couples prefer to keep everything a secret, while some considers ring shopping a fun bonding moment. In short, you do you!
