We live in an age where tradition is sometimes perceived to be anachronistic and out of step. Indeed, everything from traditional values to traditional behaviour is often seen as being ’so last century’. However, there is one area of life in which many people, especially women, still encourage tradition – wedding proposals.

Certainly, most women adore the idea of their man getting down on one knee and presenting them with a beautiful diamond engagement ring. So, if you are a fella who is thinking of popping the question anytime soon, you will need to choose a ring that will live up to her traditional expectations!

However, the wealth of options available can make shopping for an engagement ring a quite bewildering task. Furthermore, visiting up-market jewellers can also be a somewhat intimidating experience as they have a way of making you feel obliged to consider engagement rings that cost significantly more than you would ideally like to pay.

Thankfully, both of these issues can be comprehensively dealt with when you decide to buy your lady’s ring online from us here at Marlows. Indeed, shopping online allows you to browse through our beautiful diamond rings at your leisure and feel completely at ease as you do so. In addition, our easy-to-use website is also full of helpful information and advice so any question or query you might have can normally be addressed with just a simple click on your mouse.

Of course, there are still a few vital pieces of information that you will need to know before you can place your order – with one of the most important being knowing your betrothed’s ring size. Unfortunately, this can often prove to be trickier than you might initially think. Simply ‘borrowing’ one of her other rings will be of little help as it won’t be exactly the right size unless she also wears it on her engagement finger. You really will need to quite Machiavellian in your methods, but remember: if you are in any doubt, make sure you get a ring which is slightly smaller rather than one that is slightly larger as it is normally easier to get smaller rings resized.

While you are looking through your bride-to-be’s jewellery box, make a mental note of whether the metals in her collection are made up of mostly white gold, yellow gold or platinum. Happily, we have all three options available here at Marlows so you can be sure that you will be able to find something that will suit her tastes exactly!

All that’s left to do now is choose a ring that has a cut which will sparkle as brightly as your beloved’s smile as you get down on one knee. No cut sparkles brighter than a round brilliant cut diamond, however princess cut diamond engagement rings do come a close second.

So, now all you have to do is place your order and pick a time and place to make it all happen.

Good luck!
