Are you and your partner ready to take your relationship to the next step? Do you dream about having that one jaw dropping ring on your finger? The best way to make sure you get the perfect ring while maintaining the surprise is by leaving hints. The hints don't have to be straightforward...there are so many ways to do it secretly! Here are the 5 fun and creative ways to help you get the ring you always wanted!
Hint #1: Social Media
There are 3 easy ways you can use social media to leave a hint. You can use Pinterest, scroll through Instagram, or leave a web browser up on your laptop or phone. Pinterest is a very reliable way to show your partner what type of ring you want. All you have to do is make a board based on wedding stuff or just engagement rings. Make sure your partner knows that you love using Pinterest and that everything you want and create comes from your pins.
Another fun way is by using Instagram. This works perfectly on a night when the two of you are laying in bed or just hanging on the couch watching tv. Either scroll down your feed if you follow jewelry accounts or go to a jewelry account and look through it. All you have to do then is make sure you get their attention. The easiest way to do that is by making little comments here or there like "I love the way this ring looks" or "look at this ring that popped up on my feed, it's gorgeous".
If you share a computer with your boo, this hint is going to be perfect for you. If you don’t, you can still use this, it’s just a little more work than if you share. Just leave a web browser or picture up on your laptop or phone for your partner to see. All you have to do is search for the ring you adore and put your laptop somewhere you know they will see it. Make sure to leave the area so they have ample time to look at it. The other option is by leaving a picture of the ring on your phone and then setting your phone down. Eventually ask them if they can pass you your phone. That way they can see the picture on your screen.
Hint #2: Compliment a Celebrity Ring/Friends Ring
When a celebrity gets engaged it is usually posted everywhere, and everyone and anyone is normally talking about it or at least hears about it. Chances are one celebrity will or already has the ring that looks just like your dream ring. This is one of the least obvious ways to show your partner what type of ring you want. It is normal to talk about other people’s engagement rings, so why not say "omg, did you see this person's ring! It is gorgeous..." and then mention what you love about it. That is all you have to do! Easy, right!
Hint #3: Tell a Trustworthy Friend
You know that one friend that you can tell anything to and trust them with your life? Well this is a time in your life when you are going to need them to be that trustworthy person. This tactic is helpful if you and your significant other have talked about getting engaged. Your friend just needs to know what your dream ring looks like (which they probably already do), and then they will take it from there. They just have to lead your partner into the right direction of the ring you rave about all the time and convince your significant other than it was totally their idea.
Hint #4: Window Shopping
A day that you and your partner decide to go out shopping (one day when the world is open again) make sure you are walking past one of the jewelry stores. You can quickly stop, look and observe the rings through the window and point out the ones you love.
Hint #5: Engagement Ring Magazine
Why not get an engagement ring magazine, look book or pamphlet that you can just leave lying around anywhere in the house. Just look through it, and circle the rings that resemble your dream ring. You can subtly make sure that your partner sees you circling the rings or you can just leave the magazine open on a page where you circled a ring.
These 5 hints are not only going to help you get your dream ring, but they will also help your partner making it a lot easier and less stressful to pick one out. Trust these hints; your partner will notice them. Have fun and take notice to their reactions so you can talk about them later in life when that gorgeous ring is on your finger forever!
