How much should I spend on an engagement ring?

How much should I spend on an engagement ring?

It’s the perennial question and one I get asked more than any other: How much should I spend on an engagement ring? The honest answer is that you should always spend what you can sensibly afford. For lots of people that goes against the grain because they’ve grown up believing that you need to spend a fortune on a ring to go with a proposal. I’m never quite sure whether the person asking the question is hoping to hear a price that won’t break the bank but also won’t make them look like a cheapsk...

Is there such a thing as the perfect engagement ring? Read this and find out.

Is there such a thing as the perfect engagement ring? I get asked this question a lot – so much so that I wrote a book on exactly that subject (and there’s a link to buy it at the end of this article). I also made a film about it, which you can watch here. It’s a very hot topic in my world. So, is there such a thing as the perfect engagement ring? The answer is yes, there is. Can I describe it to you? No, because the perfect engagement ring is perfect only to the person who buys it or the person...

3 Creative and Unique Ways to Propose

3 Creative and Unique Ways to Propose

When you propose to the man or woman of your dreams, you want it to be special, memorable and wonderful. You want it to be romantic and authentic. You want it to be exactly the way it should be. But really, if you're being totally honest with yourself, what you want most of all is to be a hero. You want the other person to see that you’ve gone out of your way to find the most perfect, unique and creative way to make their dreams come true. That it has taken months of military-grade planning. Tha...

Is He Taking His Time? 5 Ways to Nudge Him About Popping the Question.

Is He Taking His Time? 5 Ways to Nudge Him About Popping the Question.

You’ve been going out for a while now; you know he or she is a keeper and you think it’s time you took the big step on the road to marriage. But they’re taking their time over the proposal and they don’t seem to be in any hurry in popping the question. You’ve tried bringing the conversation around to the future and you know they see things the same way you do, but for whatever reason, they’re dragging their feet and are showing no signs of proposing. Naturally, you could pop the question yoursel...

Never mind the price, feel the value

Never mind the price, feel the value

When it comes to one of the most significant investments you’ll ever make, it’s less about price and more about value. Listen, there are plenty of places to buy an engagement ring for not a lot of money. You’ll find them on every High Street and, if you really don’t care about the quality, they litter the internet like confetti. Buying a cheap engagement ring is not difficult. Buying one that represents great value is another matter entirely. Let me illustrate for you. When you buy a house, do y...

Proposing? The biggest surprise might be that she doesn’t like the ring!

Proposing? The biggest surprise might be that she doesn’t like the ring!

If you’re thinking of proposing, I’ve got news for you: when it comes to choosing the ring, you’re in way over your head. I know, I know. It’s contentious and I’m not usually given to making sweeping statements, but there’s no getting away from it: the groom-in-waiting is usually the least qualified person to take on the job of picking out one of only two things she’ll (hopefully) wear for the rest of her life. Oh yes, you think you’re qualified for the job. Of course you think you’re qualified ...

Buying a diamond? Make sure you buy the stone and not the paper!

Buying a diamond? Make sure you buy the stone and not the paper!

The internet is a wonderful thing. It has massive advantages and it's becoming the only way for people to do their shopping. Loaded with information, it has revolutionised the way we're able to research big ticket items before we commit to purchasing. In this instance, of course, I'm talking about diamonds. It's increasingly easier to purchase diamonds online, but why you would ever do that is beyond me. In fact, I recently wrote about why hunting for the perfect engagement ring online is a lost...

Your relationship is bespoke and her engagement ring should be, too

Your relationship is bespoke and her engagement ring should be, too

It’s a little-known fact amongst women, but the hardest part of any engagement is the proposal. No, really. I’m not trying to be controversial for the sake of being controversial. It’s just the truth. Most women simply have no concept of the level of anxiety, worry and pressure that men feel when they’re about to pop the question. Now, that’s not because women are in any way unfeeling or lack empathy. In many cases, the woman has been waiting, sometimes quite impatiently, to be asked the questio...

Your wedding and engagement rings should be perfect partners too

Your wedding and engagement rings should be perfect partners too

The wedding day. A riot of colour that sweeps and swirls, always moving and always changing; of polite laughter that will edge steadily and unstoppably into raucousness as the hours pass; of blossom and confetti amid smiling faces. It’s a perfect day for two perfect people, the start of what you fiercely hope will be a perfect life as perfect partners. And just as you and your partner personify the unification of a perfect match, so the rings on her finger ought to reflect that perfection, too. ...
