Tips & Tricks: How to Get your Other Half’s Dream Ring

We’ve been in the engagement ring game for a while now and we’ve seen all the tricks. People come in to the shop all the time trying to get the perfect engagement ring for their other half. It’s so hard to know exactly what your significant other deems as their dream ring, however, there are tricks to getting it right.


Getting the right size is the hardest part. Obviously, you don’t usually think about the size of your partners fingers unless you have luckily bought them a ring before. Most of the time buying and engagement ring is a pretty secretive thing and you don’t want to spoil the surprise by measuring their ring finger. I used to wear rings everyday, but not when I went to my old job. My now fiance knew this and stole one of my rings to take to the shop. Very sneaky but a super innovative trick to getting the perfect size.

Remember I said size was probably the hardest issue? Well I lied. There are so many styles of engagement ring to choose from and so many options when it comes to bespoke designs. Some people come to Bejouled and have an exact idea of their dream ring and others, not so much. My top tip for this is to take your other half “shopping” and in the midst of the shopping trip say you want to go look at “watches”, “jewellery”, “present for your mum” basically anything that can get you near some engagement rings. While pretending to look at other things try and draw their attention to the rings discretely. They might highlight things they like or even look at a certain style more than others. From this you can get a pretty good idea of what they would like.
