Tips to secretly choose the perfect engagement ring

Use these tips as an easy guide to craft or choose her dream ring:

  1. Speak to those who know her best – partner up with her mother and friends for a precise insight into her jewellery taste and style.
  2. Begin your home detective work – inspect her jewellery collection for an idea of her ring style, cut and colour.
  3. Ring measurements can be difficult to perfect – secretly borrow a few of her rings for Anania Jewellers to determine the size or bring in a friend with a similar hand size.
  4. Together, create a custom made piece embodied with love and a personal touch; or
  5. Choose the perfect piece from Anania Jewellers extensive collection of handcrafted beauty.

  7. Let her fall in love all over again.

How to choose her perfect ring style…

Your most valuable assets for choosing the perfect ring are her friends and mother. Who better to know what she loves than the people closest to her. Ask questions about the type of ring style, stone and cut she would love. This could be a classic, elegant round cut – a brilliant, contemporary princess cut – or a bold, one-of-a-kind unique cut.






We advise you to look through her jewellery collection and get an idea of her ring styles and colour; she could wear rose gold, white gold or yellow gold. For your ease of mind, you can bring a few of her rings with you for the team at Anania Jewellers to determine her style and suggest a variety of rings that match the description.

How to find the perfect fit…

Achieving the perfect sizing is difficult. The best way to avoid resizing the ring is to borrow one she isn’t wearing and bring it to Anania Jewellers to be measured.

Another option is to find a friend that has a similar hand size for her to model a variety of rings. This will give Anania Jewellers an idea of sizing, whether she has very petite, normal or larger size fingers.

How much to spend on her engagement ring…

This is one of the most common questions we hear from men shopping for engagement rings, and for good reason. An engagement ring is an investment of a lifetime with your partner and depending on the cut, stone and karatage of the ring, the price can vary.

Tradition suggests a young man should spend between one and three month’s salary on an engagement ring. However, Anania Jewellers understands that price can be a large factor in what ring to choose. Anania Jewellers can advise you on the appropriate amount to spend and specialise a collection of rings suited to any budget.
