It’s almost Valentine’s Day peeps. And i’m hoping these posts inspire guys out shopping jewellery for their ladies 😉 Showing your partner just how much you love them can be done in many different ways. What better way to show them your intent than asking them to marry you? If you are thinking about asking the question and wondering what to do about an engagement ring, why not take a look at some of the wonderfully antique engagement rings that are available to buy, and give them a ring that is not only stunning, but it is also full of character.
Where to find Antique Rings
A lot of the bigger jewellery stores that you find on the high street will often only carry new stock, but you do find the independent jewellery stores often deal with all kinds of jewellery, new and used. However, rather than running around trying to find a shop, let your fingers do the walking and use the internet. You will quickly find a lot of companies on the internet that all stock antique engagement rings. Kalmar Antiques has wide range of antique engagement rings to choose from, and they can also cater to almost any budget.
Choosing a Store to Purchase your Ring
You will want to make a list of potential companies to deal with and contact each company directly. Initially, an email can be sent, but you may also wish to speak to them on the telephone and also visit each one in turn.
Some of the stores may have an award-winning jewellery designer on site, which can go a long way in assuring you that your piece is in safe hands. Make sure that you do not rush into a decision and choose the store that you feel most comfortable dealing with, which is also usually the one that offers the best service.
Choosing the Ring
If you have a good idea of your partner’s taste in jewellery, you will be able to choose a ring that will melt their heart. However, if you are unsure you may wish to solicit the help of some friends or loved ones who know their taste in jewellery. Before you start to look at the rings, you will need to work out your budget, and make sure that you stick to it. Whether you go for a 1920s Art Deco diamond engagement ring or a sapphire and diamond ring made in 1910, if you choose the right ring, you will surely melt their heart and say yes when you ask them the question.
Popping the Question
Now that you have the ring, all you need to do is pick the perfect time to sweep your partner off their feet and ask them to marry you. There are many ways you can do this such as the traditional bended knee, over a meal and let her find the ring, or even through the use of billboards and road signs. However way you ask the question, if you can surprise them and then show them the engagement ring of their dreams, how will they ever say no to you?
