Medawar Jewelers, the jeweler of choice for hundreds of men and women in Michigan, often receives questions from customers about the proper steps to be taken when getting ready for the engagement proposal. Given that 40 percent of soon-to-be fiancés pop the question between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day, there’s no better time than now for a marriage-minded person to do their research. For the benefit of its customers, Medawar Jewelers seeks to offer a holiday guide for those looking to pop the question.
First, as Medawar Jewelers suggests, an individual planning to pop the question should be confident that their partner will say “yes.” While that seems to be an obvious thing to many people, too many people jump into the euphoria of buying an engagement ring and planning for the perfect proposal without giving thought to serious — if less fun — realities. One of those realities is that it’s easier to get through an engagement and planning for a wedding with a future mother- and father-in-law on-board. Medawar Jewelers suggests speaking to the parents to get their ideas, assistance, potential support and, if it’s important, their blessings before going through with the proposal.
Once those things are established, Medawar Jewelers suggests that some prep work be done before purchasing the engagement ring. Too many proposals are diminished by a ring that’s radically outside of what a woman wants. Taking measurements of ring size is crucial and should be followed up with a detailed list of traits that a woman appreciates in her jewelry. The lover of rose gold might turn up her nose at white gold; the woman with her heart set on an emerald-cut diamond may not enjoy a round-cut stone as much.
The moment of the proposal, Medawar Jewelers seeks to emphasize, should be magical. Proposing on Christmas or New Year’s Day is an exceptional choice, but even if one is popping the question at dinner or at an event, be prepared to postpone the question if things aren’t right. After all, if a man is planning on spending the rest of his life with his partner, can’t he wait a few more days?
