Men sometimes think that a fancy engagement ring is enough to sweep their beloved off their feet, and make them utter the sweetest sounding “yes”. These guys are somehow convinced that a wedding proposal could be deemed complete and memorable by simply having the perfect and most sought-after engagement ring.
But of course, this is not entirely the case. In order to achieve that flawless wedding proposal, ample effort should be given into planning the “moment”. After all, the best way to complement an exemplary engagement ring is to communicate “its” message in the most engaging way possible.
Here are three wedding proposal ideas to match three different types of engagement ring settings.
Prong- This is the typical choice for engagement ring shoppers due mainly to the setting’s capacity to make a diamond stud look bigger than its actual size. This effect is made possible by the stud’s slight suspension from the ring band thanks to the discreet hooks incorporated to the design.
Proposal Idea: Prong setting usually has four hooks and these could be used as metaphors for a couple’s most cherished moments together.
Try to recreate at least four of you and your partners’ most special experiences together. Plan a day that will be divided into four chapters; with each chapter alluding to a specific highlight of your relationship. End the entire day by making another unforgettable memory: your wedding proposal.
Bezel- This engagement ring setting is suited for people with an active or fast-paced lifestyle. The diamond incorporated to the band is surrounded by a rim of metal which keeps it in place and protects its edges; hence, this ring is the perfect choice for couples who are into thrill and adventure.
Proposal Idea- What better way to surprise your thrill-seeking partner with an engagement ring than to pop it out during one of your adrenaline-pumping escapades?
Let’s say during your next rappelling or scuba diving adventure. After all, not everyone gets to have the chance to propose while hanging from a cliff or swimming under the sea.
Channel- The diamond accent in this engagement ring setting looks like it has been infused to the band. The absence of metal clips or hooks give the ring a more sinuous appeal.
Proposal Idea: This setting is the go-to-ring for people who prioritize safety and security
Considering that its design allows the ring to be less susceptible to various threats like disentanglement of the diamond from the band.
Just like this engagement ring, your relationship should also be equally safe and secure. Emphasize your sheer regard for safekeeping by playing the role of a one-time police officer. Wait for your soon-to-be fiancée on a busy street- her usual daily route on the way to and from work- and pull her over.
Instead of handing her a ticket, though, pop out the ring and utter your promise of love, devotion, and security.
