How to Drop an Engagement Ring Hint

How can you be sure that your loved one will get you the engagement ring you truly desire? How do you make suggestions without ruining the suspense and coming right out and telling your love what you want? Although there is much to be said about choosing rings after the proposal, there is also plenty of romance and magic in having the perfect ring presented in the proposal. One of the worst things that can happen is that you are presented with a ring that you truly do not like.

While marriage is about love rather than rings, this is something you will wear for the rest of your life. Naturally, you want to feel giddy every time you look at the ring rather than long for something different. To make sure that your love is able to read between the lines, dropping the right engagement hints is crucial.

Dropping Engagement Ring Hints

You could wait and see whether you get the engagement ring of your dreams without hints, but giving a few clues definitely makes things easier – for you and your love. Here are a few ways that you can get the message across in a subtle yet effective way.

Use social media.

Pinterest is especially useful for this task. Make sure that your partner follows you, then create a board filled with dream rings. You can be subtle and add in other jewellery, too. The reason that this one works so well is that your love can see the styles that you truly like. He will able to use that as inspiration, without the risk of not having a clue what you really want in a ring.

Get friends involved.

Another way that you can let some ideas slip is to get your friends involved. You could ask them to see if your partner has mentioned anything and make sure that they are more than happy to give him ideas. You could even give them one of your rings (making sure it fits on the right finger) to make sure that your love has the right size. Ask them to drop hints on your favourite stones, metal, styles, and designs, too.

Start a conversation.

Finally, you could also simply start a conversation. If you both know that wedding bells are soon to be heard, it can be a lot easier to talk things through rather than leave anything to chance. When you are both open and honest about where you see your relationship heading, it will be easier for you to make direct hints about jewellery and rings you love or point pictures out in magazines. This can save you both a headache or two.
