While the task of selecting an engagement ring for your partner can seem daunting, the process can be smooth and straight-forward by taking a certain measures.


One of the most helpful things you can do to ensure you select the perfect ring is to find out your partner’s ring size. While this may seem difficult to achieve without spoiling the surprise, there are a few ways to do this in a discreet manner. A great way to do this, is to take one of your partner’s existing rings and have it measured. If possible, try and select a ring worn on their ring finger for accurate sizing.

For modern couples, a coloured ring can be a unique way to start your forever.

If you think your partner would love an elegant, classic ring, our Cushion Cut Diamond Halo Engagement Ring is a wonderful choice. Graceful and elegant, your partner will treasure this stunning piece forever.

 It can be helpful to take a look at your partner’s current jewellery collection to see the kind of pieces they naturally gravitate towards. Are there any recurring themes in their collection, like colour, shape, metals or styles? Remember to be discreet, so that they don’t realise what you are doing and ruin the surprise.
