Finding "the one" is never easy. While initially, you might feel like you have no clue about what engagement ring to get, the hints are all around you. We have run a survey on more than 1000 women to know what to look out for! Our results and our expertise are here to help you make the best decision.
1. Look at her everyday jewelry
100% of the women interviewed stated that they'd like their engagement ring to match the style of their other day-to-day jewelry.
Ask yourself: Is her jeweler rather minimalistic or glitzy? Is it understated or striking? Are there various gold colours and materials or is there a certain winner? An engagement ring should fit in that picture.
2. Get inspired by her clothes
100% of all women stated that their engagement ring should match their clothing style.
Her clothes will tell you a lot about the type of ring she would choose for herself! Is she minimal, glamorous, vintage, boho, classic, or avant-garde? If you are able to answer these questions, you have already done a big step towards finding the perfect ring.

4. Look out for "hidden" hints
If you're on the hunt for an engagement ring for your special someone, chances are she already knows exactly what she wants. Do a little research and find out whether she has some inspiration ready for you on her Pinterest board (two-thirds of the women we asked do!).
5. Ask her close relatives
About a third of the women we asked stated that someone of her friends and family knew exactly what ring they liked. As long as you know this person can keep a secret, don't be scared to ask!
6. Ask her
The safest way to make the right choice is by asking your loved one what ring she'd like or even going shopping for an engagement ring together. More than half of the women in our survey stated that they'll happily give their partner direct hints on what they'd like - so be careful whenever the topic of jewelry comes up.
