How Much Should I Invest?
This is an emotional event, and a purchase that will last a lifetime. The two-month salary convention is the traditional-but-slightly out-dated starting point. Marmalade advice is to focus on value and quality – regardless of how much you invest.
Before you start your journey, have a figure in mind and do your research. Be prepared to stretch your budget a bit if you find something perfect.
Choose the Ring She'll Love
Discovering what kind of ring she likes can be a challenge if you want to keep your proposal a secret.
Harness your inner James Bond for a bit of old–style reconnaissance. When you´re with your girlfriend, pay attention to the jewellery she wears. Does she wear a lot of gold? Maybe she´s a silver or platinum woman. Does she like simple, understated pieces? Or does she favour the big, glitzy variety?
Think about her personality: is she an outgoing girl who you know is going to want to show off her ring to everyone she meets? Then go for something big and sparkly.
Is she more reserved and simple in her taste, and doesn´t wear much jewellery at all? Then the hunt should be on for some understated and elegant.
