The conventional idea is that one person buys an engagement ring to surprise their partner with. Although this is a fairly common process, it is not the only way to purchase an engagement ring. More and more couples are opting to shop for engagement rings and buy them together or before they are fully ready to get engaged. Our team at Morgan Jewelers has put together this guide to why trying on engagement rings before buying can be a positive experience for a couple.
Opens Up the Marriage Conversation
A conversation about marriage is nearly inevitable in any long-term relationship. It’s a signal that you should start thinking about the future and all of its possibilities. Beginning the conversation while looking at rings could be a hopeful dream of a date where you both fantasize about the incredible future the two of you can build together. If you have already discussed the idea of marriage, looking at rings will give you essential insight into the type of ring they’ll love when the time is right.
Learn Their True Ring Size
It’s essential to figure out someone’s ring size. Even if they’ve already gotten measured, ring sizes aren’t static: fingers change over time. Since an engagement ring is so valuable both sentimentally and monetarily, it is highly recommended to remeasure to get an accurate ring size before you procure an engagement ring. A ring that doesn’t fit can slip off or cut off circulation, the latter of which can lead to health problems. While you can do the measurements yourself, it is best to have a professional do it.
Discover Their Engagement Aesthetic
Paying attention to their personal style and the jewelry that they like to wear are important factors when picking out an engagement ring. However, they might have a specific idea for their perfect engagement ring that is different than you may expect. Perhaps they want an engagement ring with features like their grandmother’s or a ring they saw in one of their favorite movies.
