Some pieces might be render images, unavailable, have limited stock, be completely out of budget or they might just not match your partner all that well. Overall this article is just a collection of tips that might help, and we hope they do. Good luck!
The scenario is this:
You’ve met your person and decided you want to take the next step… Now what? You plan how you’re going to pop the question. In your mind you can already picture everything: place and time of day, afterwards celebration, their reaction and even what you’ll wear…
But what about the ring?
It has to be to their taste, but there’s so much to consider… They like a specific stone, but will they like the overall look of the ring? There are so many options, how will you possibly choose?
It can be quite the task, and finding something that doesn’t conform to traditional standards is not easy. From similar search results to endless web deep-dives, getting stuck is almost inevitable.
That’s when you turn to lists and articles, but most of them talk about jewellery technicalities, and we all know that technical aspects can leave you running around in circles. Another aspect is that most of these are sponsored, and although there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, it can be a bit biased and lack variety.
In our case, we just love jewellery and we want to help you get the perfect piece. So here’s what we did: we’ve gathered information on current styles, fashion, brands andtooptions in order to create a list based on your partner’s style.
Your partner deserves to feel special and you deserve a break, so for all our hes, shes and theys, here’s a list of suggestions for different people with different styles:

These individuals want all that cinematic countryside romance, even if they live in the city. Flowers and nature are their go-to, they’re sweet, almost too good for this world and sunlight shines upon them like no one else. Our take on these beautiful souls is simple and sweet: go for something that seems taken out of a romantic novel, “pretty” should be your main word on this search and don’t forget the little elements that make them smile, whether that’s a stone colour or a small engraving. Aim for details that have meaning and elements that will only be noticeable to them.
Let’s face it, your partner was written by a fantasy author, somehow freed themselves from their paper shackles and made their way into this world… that’s pretty amazing, to be fair. Now, what to get them? Surely it has to be something that captures their airy essence. It doesn’t really matter if you like LOTR or not because if elves were real, your partner would be one of them. Your search should focus on something.. magical. Sparkly, but not mainstream, with intertwined lines, nature-inspired traits, and fundamentally delicate.
Hype & Style
The meaning surrounding engagement rings has changed through the course of time in order to meet social standards. Although it started off as being a symbol of “possession” over someone, nowadays it’s almost like the ultimate gift before entering married life. If that’s the case, why not give them exactly what they want? If your partner likes big brands, stand-out pieces, and bling jewellery that much, having that as an engagement ring is truly the ultimate gift. Our advice here is really emphasising their favourites. More often than not they mention their preferred brand in conversation so keep an ear out for that. Also important to note is how flashy they want it and how visible they want the label to be. Don’t be afraid to pick something that is blatantly branded if that’s what you know they’d like. All that will be left to do is choose.
Need we say more? #minimalism - the best thing you can give them is something that always effortlessly matches whatever they choose to wear. It needs to be comfortable and not mess with their clean aesthetic/way of life. Maintaining the balance your partner craves is more important than fitting any sort of “social standard”. Go with simple, austere lines and minimal (if any) detail.
It’s safe to say that we’re officially over the whole “mandatory” cliché wedding and it’s all about personal identity: Want to go for white, lacy and sparkly? Timeless and elegant. Do you want gothic-inspired, dark and/or irreverent detailing? Absolutely stunning.
Identity comes in all shapes, colours and sizes, and being truthful to one’s self is essential, even more so on such a special occasion. So here are a few examples of rings that can match your partner’s beautiful obsidian soul.
This group of people appreciate the impact of a classic and tend to display accordingly. They always carry themselves with poise, never seem to have a hair out of place and exude confidence. They have places to be and time is money, so don’t waste it. When it comes to a ring, classic and exquisite is a safe bet. But beware, classic does not equal simple. Make sure you match their energy: if they’re discreet, tone it down on the amount of detailing; If they’re the type to show up and show out, shoot for the stars.
