Of course, you know the best way to get your special lady an engagement ring she'll love is to let her choose it herself.
After all, it has to feel good on her finger and sometimes many different shapes and styles need to be tried on to determine which ring will actually be the best acquisition for her.
However, even though you know all that makes perfect sense; the romantic in you still wants to go it alone and give her the surprise of her life. Naturally, this is a far more risky approach as shopping for engagement rings can be somewhat challenging if you don't know what you're doing. Thankfully, there is one fail-safe option that is practically guaranteed to impress your special someone - buying a diamond ring.
That's right; go for a diamond. Even though jewelled rings such as emeralds, sapphires, aquamarine, topaz, and tourmaline have become fashionable of late; diamond engagement rings are still the most impressive. Why? It's simple: diamonds have a beauty, allure and fascination that is simply irresistible; especially to women. Indeed, when young girls imagine the moment they will get engaged, it is diamond rings that they dream of - not topaz or tourmaline.
So, if you do decide to be a lone wolf and go engagement ring shopping all by yourself; make sure you improve your chances of success by choosing a beautiful diamond.
And anyway; you can always go shopping together when you choose your wedding rings!
