why it's important to have the perfect ring to propose

As you all know, Keshaun and I got engaged this past March. Before then, we were on the hunt for the most perfect ring. I, for one, am picky and wasn’t going to just wear any old ring for the rest of my life. Come on guys, whether or not you want to admit it, it’s probably true! Luckily for me, my guy went to Jared The Galleria Of Jewelry and got the perfect engagement ring!

While you have probably spotted my ring in posts prior to this one, today I will be sharing some pieces from Jared, including another engagement ring option, wedding day jewelry or wedding party gift ideas, and reasons why it’s important to have the perfect ring to propose! Look out for the sweepstakes at the bottom of the post; Jared is giving you a chance to win one of four prizes, now – December 8th, so you’ll want to stick around for that! 😉

Before I get into that, I’ll briefly share our engagement story for those who are new here. We met about 5 years ago, where we used to work together at AT&T. We didn’t start dating however, until our tenure was nearly up working together. During most of our employment, we were both seeing other people, so a relationship wasn’t possible – And don’t worry, he was not my manager or vice versa –  No conflict of interest there, haha! After a little over 3 years of dating, he popped the question! It started by him inviting my parents to dinner on a Saturday night (which never happens, by the way, so I knew something was up). We were at the restaurant, and he kept disappearing to talk to the waitress. I honestly knew he was going to propose, so while he stepped away, I whispered across to my mom, “He’s about to propose. Watch.” Low and behold, a chocolate cake was brought to me with the words, “Will You Marry Me?” written on the plate in chocolate syrup. He then popped the question with the most gorgeous ring from Jared, which you can view up close in this Instagram pic. Now I have always been an advocate of having the perfect ring and my ring is beyond that! Here are four reasons why I believe in having a perfect ring for the proposal:

4 Reasons Why It’s Important to Have the Perfect Ring to Propose:

  1. An engagement ring describes your significant other, what they mean to you and also reflects the feelings of the couple.

As I mentioned, Keshaun and I went looking for rings before he actually proposed. I always emphasized what I wanted and what I didn’t. I specified that I only wanted a round-cut diamond engagement ring. In knowing this, he was able to better choose a ring that perfectly described me. At Jared The Galleria of Jewelry, feelings are turned into jewelry, since the staff is dedicated to helping their guests find the perfect piece! This diamond engagement ring from Jared, featured in the photos, is just stunning. Arcs of 14K rose gold add warm contrast in either side of the rows and rows of gorgeous diamonds. This piece would make any girl swoon, especially someone who loves a little dazzle paired perfectly with a classic touch! I had my eye on a 2-carat stone and, with my fiancé being the loving man he is, he purchased it for me! My engagement ring means so much to me, the thought put behind it and the symbol it represents. The fact that it’s exactly what I wanted is bonus. It definitely describes me to perfection!

  1. The perfect engagement ring must look good in photos.

Think about it, your partner will wear this ring for the rest of their life. This means they will wear it in every picture, starting with the immediate post-proposal picture announcing your engagement to the world! As a result, everyone will see it, including both sides of the family. So there has to be pictorial memories to look back on, years from now when sifting through old photographs. Something else to consider, future generations will also see these photos.

3. Typically, there is only one chance to propose – so, the engagement ring you select has to be the right one – the first time.

I only plan on getting married once, so wearing the perfect ring has always been important to me. It’s something that is with me forever and something that I will wear for the rest of my life, refer back to reason #2. I’d rather spend my life happy with the ring I’m wearing, than to be unhappy with a ring that doesn’t fit my individual style. It’s an important question, guys. Asking for someone’s hand in marriage is asking to spend the rest of your life with them. It should be taken seriously and seen as a long-term commitment. The same can be said about the diamond you put on her finger, it should represent you as a couple and be something she’s excited to wear each day. Jared The Galleria Of Jewelry has access to one of the largest suppliers of diamonds and its expertise lies not in volume, but the ability to find guests the perfect stone! So, if you want to make sure to find the perfect diamond for the one you love, rest assured Jared has a great selection for you to choose from.

4. Go to the experts! You want a ring that is beautiful and will last forever!

Guys, this is so important. You have to go to the experts if you want to check off points 1-3 I’ve listed above. Jared The Galleria Of Jewelry works with renowned designers to deliver exclusive pieces, only available to their guests. So, whether you’re creating your own, one of a kind, piece or selecting something from behind the glass, Jared is the expert and knows how to help you select the perfect ring for her. With the perfect ring comes quality and dedication to the best service. When purchasing my ring, my fiancé definitely found both of those at Jared. They were very patient with him until he made the choice. He actually went back several times before finally deciding on a ring. In the times he went, they continued to ask questions about my personality and even looked at several photos on my Instagram feed to determine my style and what I might like. They never pressured him into purchasing; they only reassured him that they were there for anything he needed and to just make sure it was the right fit before making a decision. Luckily for me, it was the perfect choice. I also can go into my local Jared for a free cleaning anytime. That service, and after purchase care, plays a big part in it lasting forever!

    Ahh first off, I have to begin by saying GIRL, you will make a BEAUTIFUL bride! And thanks so much for sharing these awesome Engagement ring tips! Had I not been married already and still waiting to get engaged, I definitely would have sent this post to my now-hubbie 🙂 You raise some awesome points, but most importantly, I love that you are able to emphasize honesty and happiness. The process of choosing a ring and the ring is so symbolic, and you touch upon this so well. Jared’s sounds like it was THE perfect place to find this ring- plus I love that they offer free cleanings too! I’ll definitely have to stop in for some holiday jewels soon 🙂 Thanks for sharing gorgeous!

    I actually didn’t care what kind of ring I was getting, to be honest I was so in love with my husband and when he stand on his knee and asked me to marry him, I thought I am the happiest girl ever. While tearing, I noticed my engagement ring and it was classic one from Tiffany’s. I am glad that your husband found a very beautiful engagement ring and all this extra jewels. You two look amazing!

    I always love reading people’s engagement stories! Yours is so cute! It’s adorable that you called it before it even happened. I love your four reasons to have the perfect ring! My friends have had horror stories, so I am definitely learning from their mistakes! Quality for me is everything and I am letting my boyfriend know exactly what I want, so I don’t need to get a new ring. I agree, the ring also has to look good in photos!

    Thanks for sharing!

    What a sweet engagement story! Definitely agree that the perfect ring is definitely INTEGRAL to a proposal! I was kind of upset about how my husband proposed to me tbh and probably wouldn’t have said yes if it weren’t for him nailing the ring!

    Your ring is so gorgeous! Your fiance and Jared Jewelers did an amazing job. Also, LOVE your fresh beauty look in these photos, you look so stunning!

    Awww what a sweet proposal. So funny that you knew. I’ve always wondered if ring shopping was a thing. I guess it is nowadays. I guess I’ve never really thought about it. So great that you’ve known eachother for so long. And the right ring is right honey haha. Can’t wait to hear more about your engagement and what’s to come

  • Reply Massiel 11/16/2017 at 2:40 pm

    Let’s start by stating the obvious, the ring is stunning!

    I love your approach, a woman should be able to pick her own ring, after all, she’s planning to wear it for the rest of her life… But on the other hand, I feel like that totally ruins the surprise, so I’m a bit split on this.

    Love the pictures, and the way he proposed to you was simply beautiful.

  • Reply Thomas Falkenstedt 11/17/2017 at 2:37 pm

    Ok hun, first I’d need that boo to propose to, but after that small lil ring of affection is ever so much of a a symbol for you life together. Not only does it define what kind of commitment you’re going to make, but it also, please no one is hopefully disturbed by the fact, sets a certain standard of living. I believe you chose the perfect standard of rings to propose. You’re one amazing couple! 🙂
