1. DO try on lots of different kinds of rings.
I was set on getting a single circle stone on a small band, but once I tried it on I realized I didn't love the way it looked on me. I was glad I found that out before the proposal.
2. DO know your budget.
I remember it seemed a little awkward asking my then boyfriend what the budget was. Ultimately we decided on a budget together and it was nice to know while looking at rings so I could get an idea of what we could and couldn't afford. Neither of us wanted to go into debt over a ring, however that is a personal decision, just make sure you make it together.
3. DON'T try on rings out of your budget.
It will get too tempting and you'll want to overspend!
4. DO decide beforehand if you want to know what the ring looks like or if you want it to be a surprise.
Colten wanted it to be a surprise, I was a little too worried to let it be. So we compromised. He sent pictures of the ring he chose to my family and girlfriends to see if they approved. They did. And when he proposed with it, I was surprised, and it was perfect.
5. DON'T skip out on ring insurance.
It's worth it! I love the comfort of being able to wear my ring almost everywhere without worrying about it. If I lose a diamond, it's covered. Get a scratch? It's covered. It's so nice to ease my mind whenever I worry about it.
