'Tis the season to propose – with a
FREE proposal ring!
To buy or not to buy - the engagement ring when proposing? This question has become the biggest conundrum, the biggest fear, sometimes even more than if she will say yes or no. For millions of people all over the world who are getting ready to pop the question this Christmas, do you do it with a finished engagement ring, or is there another way?
Getting married is very much back in fashion and getting down on bended knee, along with a romantic setting is also still considered the done thing. We now know that many women prefer to choose their own engagement ring – they will, after all, be wearing it for the rest of their lives. We hear many stories where the groom, with all best intentions, is convinced he knows best, only to discover that diamond engagement ring would have been better received if it was a sapphire engagement ring! Or if only you'd chosen a different ring setting, with rubies in it. Yes it is quite stressful. But if the idea of keeping with tradition and getting down on bended knee with a ring box in your hand still appeals, you are not alone, there are millions of people all over the world who are getting ready to propose over the coming Christmas season and are currently terrified of getting it wrong. Not to mention how costly a mistake like this can be – the engagement ring traditionally costs 1-2 months’ salary - so best to get it right.
Placeholder rings and proposal rings have become a great way to still keep with tradition and propose with a ring.
