“Will you marry me?”

There are chapters in life that change our journey, like asking someone to marry you. Before you can experience this incredible life-altering event and matrimonial bliss, there are quite a few steps before you get to this point. One of the biggest steps during this journey is the proposal.

Here are some tips from Jewelry by Eric on how you can capture this moment and remember it for the rest of your life:

The Place- Pick a place that has the right atmosphere (Romantic Spots in NJ). This moment is something that both of you have talked about at some point, so you should some places in mind already. A few questions to ask yourself: Is having family and friends present important? Is a romantic atmosphere desired, or does your partner prefer it to be casual for more spontaneity? Is it somewhere that already has special meaning to you, like where you went on your first date?

Relax- Remember to take a deep breath and relax. It’s important to stay calm. This will prevent you from giving away the surprise. A good way to stay relaxed is to stretch—this loosens up tension in the muscles. Save the champagne for after the proposal!

The Ring- You found the perfect partner, so now it’s time to find the perfect engagement ring. There are a great variety of rings and diamonds that are graded by cut, color and clarity, so choosing an engagement ring that reflects your partner’s personality is crucial. Keep in mind there are quite a few different engagement ring settings. Below are some of the different ones:

Prong- This is the most common engagement ring setting. Because there is minimal metal present, you can see more of the diamond.
Bezel- Perfect for an active lifestyle, this engagement ring setting ensconces the diamond with a custom thin metal rim.
Channel- This setting secures smaller diamonds in a row in the band of the ring. The diamonds are set close in the grooves of the channel.
Cathedral- This is a classic setting, and the ring uses metal arches to hold the diamond in place.

Talking to someone that has the experience and knowledge about jewelry can help you get the perfect engagement ring. Jewelry by Eric is the perfect place to shop.
