June is here and we may have had a little more time on our hands than normal. So what have you been up to? Many people around this time of year seem to catch that pre-summer engagement buzz and perhaps with some of us spending isolation together we’ve gotten a little closer over the last year. So are you thinking what we’re thinking?
Firstly, no – there is no set time to propose or be proposed to; so let’s get that out of the way. Next up; the rule of three months salary goes back to a 1930’s ad campaign so let’s not go back in time. And finally; as a jeweller we may seem biased about certain elements of the ring, but really we want to educate and collaborate with you throughout the journey (both the engagement ring, and the wedding bands) because if you’re excited and happy than so are we. Okay perfect now that that’s out of the way let’s get to the point of this blog 😉
For the engagement ring purchaser there are going to be so many options and styles you’ll be thinking buying a car can be less complicated and you may be overwhelmed; but remember that when you visit your local jeweller you are meant to be in good hands. Never be afraid to ask questions, and at the end of the day you know your partner the best (and more than likely you’ve had some hints dropped as to what they want). The world of jewellery is like an art and when you visit a jeweller who offers custom design, you can truly make one of a kind piece. Did you know that you had that option? You can look at a design and may be able modify it to say use a different metal, accent it with a precious gemstone or diamond, or even get creative with some details to the band itself.
Life has so many complications already, but when it’s time to go engagement ring shopping this should not be one of them. And remember this ring is more than just a ring; it’s a representation of you on their finger and when they look down they want to think of you and the world the two of you share.
Stay tuned next month when we touch base on Wedding Bands!
