With the holidays just around the corner, plenty of loved-up couples are taking the time to seriously consider taking the next step in their relationship and making their commitment to one another eternal. Getting engaged is an incredibly special experience and, with a little pre-planning, your big moment can go off without a hitch.
At Paris Jewellers, we know the process of selecting an engagement ring can often feel a little intimidating. That’s why our team is here to help you find the right fit with confidence, and our wide selection of rings, including our brand new Eternal collection, makes it easy to find the perfect embodiment of your love story! If you’re in the early stages of searching for a ring to propose with, below are 4 key aspects to keep in mind. Read on to learn more!
1. Consider Your Beloved’s Lifestyle
While it’s easy to get fixated on the aesthetics of your ring, it’s important to remember some of the fundamentals first. For example, your partner’s lifestyle plays a huge role in determining what you select. Since they’ll be wearing their ring all day, every day, you’ll want to consider their daily activities, hobbies, and other scenarios that involve them working with their hands and how the ring’s design might affect them. For example, do they have a career that involves hands-on labour (i.e. first responder, teacher, chef, landscaper, etc?) Would many of their hobbies force them to constantly remove bulky jewellery? Chatting with your jeweller can help you make a more informed decision and find a model that’s well suited to your partner’s needs
2. Personal Style
Here’s where you can start to focus on design and aesthetics. At Paris Jewellers, we know that every love story is just as unique as those writing it. Finding the “right” engagement ring involves finding one that not only matches you both as a couple but truly embodies the style and things you love most in your partner. Whether they’re a timeless soul with endless elegance or an up-and-coming modern fashionista that loves to be at the forefront of all things news, your engagement ring pick should reflect who they are, and the style they feel most comfortable with.
Need help narrowing the field? If you’re not fluent in fashion and “style”, there’s no need to worry. Spend some time thinking about your loved one and what kind of clothes or accessories they love to wear, as well as when they truly seem to light up and feel, as well as the look, their best. Whether it’s a pair of beat-up jeans and a t-shirt or a glam dress with designer shoes, our style can come across in different ways. Try opening up a discussion about styles with them covertly, or, if you want to stay extra under the radar you can ask their friends or even pull up their Instagram to show your jeweller and help them get a rough idea as well.
3. Ring Size
Of course, in order to find the perfect fit, you’ll need to know what size to make the ring. While it can be tricky to find this out subtly, with a little creativity, you can get this sorted! Try “borrowing” one of her rings if possible, asking their friends, finding a way to ask them outright, or, if you’re both comfortable, going in to get their finger sized professionally.
Finally, you’ll want to factor in your overall budget when making your selection. Paris Jewellers offers rings that are perfect for budgets of all ranges and make it possible to find a stone and setting that your fiancé to be will love, without feeling stressed about finances. When deciding how much to spend, it’s important to remember that there is no such thing as a “right” or “wrong” number. Only you and the one you know can decide what’s right for you, as well as what is within your comfort range. Don’t feel pressured to go overboard and start married life in debt as a result, but don’t undersell yourself either! With a skilled jeweller on your side, finding a beautiful, reasonably priced ring doesn’t have to be a challenge!

We’re here to partner with you to make purchasing the right fit simple, affordable, and hassle free!
