It is becoming more and more popular today for women to propose to their partners instead of going down the traditional route and just waiting for it to come from them. That is not because they are supposedly tired of waiting, but because they are certain of their feelings for their partner and know they want to spend the rest of their lives with them.
Are you thinking of proposing to your partner in life but are unsure how to proceed and whether you should buy a type of engagement diamond ring for him?
Here are 3 commonly asked questions that will help you before you actually propose to him.
- What will he or family and friends think, if you pop the question before he does?

What will he or family and friends think, if you pop the question before he does?
Needless to say, a woman proposing to her partner is not as conventional as when it happens the other way around. But today, it is happening more often than we think.
We would suggest you talk about the idea of marriage with your partner before taking the plunge to make sure that he does feel the same way about you. This would give you that little extra confidence that it just hasn’t happened yet for rather irrelevant reasons such as a financial or timing reason.
After that, we believe that if family and friends know you love each other and are committed, then it will not really matter to them if it is you proposing to him or vice-versa.
Do you have to be traditional when proposing?
Traditionally, a proposal involves a diamond ring, a romantic speech while kneeling in front of your surprised partner. If you are the one proposing before he does, it really is up to you how you wish to pop the question. Obviously, a romantic, funny and thoughtful proposal is always the best. Something that defines and identifies you as a couple and your relationship is the only perfect proposal.
Do you need to buy a diamond ring for him?
Proposing with a piece of jewellery has been part of the traditions since decades. Which is why we do recommend proposing with something meaningful to you and him. So why not propose with a diamond ring for him? It does not have to be a solitaire diamond ring but could be a modern take on a wedding band with melee diamonds set like little stars on the ring.
