Picking the Perfect Ring 

One thing you want to make sure is you’re picking out the right size.

Try borrowing one of your partner’s rings that fits a similar-sized finger, ask their friends and family for their help, or compare your own hand size to theirs.

Before picking out the ring make sure you educate yourself on diamond shapes, cut, metal characteristics, and types of settings. Check out your partners existing jewellery and if they have a Pinterest board to make sure you choose something that’s their style. 

It’s also a good idea to get your ring insured like any other piece of valuable jewellery or expensive gift.

If you’re hiding your engagement ring with Curve in your home, make sure you keep the ring in a box, try camouflage by wrapping in cloth or a bag, store it away from any harmful chemicals, food, or water, and if there are pets or kids around try storing it somewhere they can’t easily get to it.
