Should You Choose Your Own Engagement Ring?

Sure, you know exactly what you want, but does it ruin the surprise?

The engagement process is the beginning of the next chapter of your life. It's a reminder of where you've been as a couple and where you're going now.

With this kind of speciality, it's expected that the moment be perfect. But what if you don't like the idea of a surprise? Future brides who decide to choose their own rings aren't necessarily doing so because they don't trust their partners judgement, but because they have a very specific taste or they'd much prefer to make the engagement a joint mission.

Wandering around jewellers together trying on different sizes, bands and styles can be a real joy for both of you. Yes, you get to wear the pieces, but your husband-to-be gets to see how happy you are at the prospect of spending the rest of your lives together.

Other women prefer the idea of a total suprise. The fact that your partner went out of their way to find something that was completely and totally you is a joy in and of itself. Plus, you never actually know when the question is coming!

Ultimately it's a choice between each individual pair. Whatever makes you as a couple happy is the best choice to make.
