I’m all about open communication when it comes to the ring you or your partner will wear for the rest of your life. So I wasn’t at all surprised when I read Wedding Wire’s 2018 report and learned:
“While 52% of individuals are surprised by the ring, 1 in 3 show their partner photos of the ring and/or style they like.”
I know this from talking to my clients in person. Whether it’s a few images subtly sent from instagram or pinterest to an explicit shopping list, It’s more common than ever for folks to have a say in their engagement ring. But sometimes, they still want the purchase and subsequent proposal to be a surprise.
That’s why I created The Dream Engagement Ring Wishlist. It’s a helpful tool to spark as much or as little of the conversation as you’d like. It’s chock full of the design choices you’ve probably got an opinion about, and maybe a few things you didn’t think to consider!
The Dream Engagement Ring Wishlist was born of the questions I ask my clients one-on-one as they begin the ring shopping process. In it we cover the basics of ring design— Gem Shape? Carat Size? Metal Preference? — the must-know details for your jeweler such as ring-size, and even a bit of ethics, such as if you’d prefer an antique diamond (or maybe not a diamond at all!)
Use this form to record as much of your preferences as you’d like. Then, pass it to a confidante (Sister, Mother, BFF) or use it to strike up that convo between you and your partner.
Need help diving into your choices? Lucky for you, we’ve got some handy blog articles to help.
Wedding Wire also shares that "nearly 40% of all engagements happen between Thanksgiving and Valentines Day,” So there’s never been a better time to grab your wishlist and make your selections.
