If you are ready to pop the question, you have to figure out a place and setting for when you will get down on one knee and ask them the big question. There are hundreds and hundreds of ways you can propose, and that is why you have to think of a creative way yourself.
You have to pick a unique way to the relationship and bond shared by both of you. You can also choose a way that truly captures the essence of who your significant other is as a person. But the first step in planning a creative proposal is picking out and buying a beautiful and gorgeous engagement ring.
Choose the Gemstone First
Diamond engagement rings are the traditional choice for a wedding proposal. Usually, a solitaire ring is used for such an occasion. However, you can pick any precious stone you think your significant other likes, such as emeralds and sapphires. The choice of a gemstone depends only on the tastes and preferences of your beloved.
What Is the Ring Metal?
There are dozens of choices available to you when you go to choose the metal for the ring. The choice of metal will depend on your lifestyle and budget. For example, if your significant other has to work with their hands frequently, you should get something that will not tarnish, like pure platinum or yellow gold.
Apart from these classic engagement ring choices, you can also go for something new such as white gold or rose gold. Both of these varieties are alloys of gold that have a stunning and distinctive appearance and luster. If you want to try something new and unique, you should look into rings made of titanium.
Should You Get Something Customized?
Most people are intimidated by customized rings because they think it's too expensive. Nothing could be further from the truth. Modern technology has made customized engagement rings much more affordable and competitively priced. You can settle on a ring metal, a stone, a setting, etc. and work closely with your jewelry designer for the occasion.
Even if you don't know the first thing about designing jewelry, the bespoke jewelry designer will assist you through every step of the process. It would help if you came up with something that will fully capture the essence of your beloved's personality. That way, you can be more than sure that they will love the ring and say yes to your proposal.
Creative Ways to Give the Ring
Now that you know all about the ring, here are some of the most creative ways to give the engagement ring.
- If your SO is an avid reader, then you can give them a ring in a hollowed-out copy of their absolute favorite hardcover book.
- If your 'significant other' like puzzles, you can ask them the question by coming up with a dilemma - like a romantic scavenger hunt or crossword puzzle.
These are the most creative ways to give a modern or vintage engagement ring to your significant other.
