Things are getting pretty serious with your partner and you have an inkling that the two of you are about to take the next step.
Like many individuals before you, the magical period of time leading up to a potential engagement is both exciting and anxiety inducing! How can you be sure that you're going to get your dream ring? Does your partner know you well enough to get an engagement ring that fits your style and is an accurate representation of your love? If you're sure that engagement is the next step you and your partner are going to take, here are 5 ways to drop a hint and get the ring you love!
Ring: The Scarlett
1. Be honest!
Okay, so it's not dropping a hint – but it's the surefire way to make sure you get the ring you love. If you and your partner have talked about getting married and spending the rest of your lives together, what's the harm in discussing your ring as well? Let your significant other know what particular style you fancy, or be completely candid and just show them the exact ring you want. It makes everything easier in the long run!

2. Shop for it together.
The best part of the internet is being able to shop from the comfort of your own home! Snuggle up together, light up some candles, and open up your laptop. Companies like Modern Gents make it easy to shop from your cozy, comfy couch and find the ring of your dreams. Not only are their rings inexpensive and affordable, but they offer hassle-free returns & exchanges – 30 days for a return, 60 days for an exchange! Buy with ease knowing you're getting the best deal.
3. Utilize social media.
We're living in a time where you can send nearly anything to anyone at any time. On Instagram, you can use the paper airplane icon under posts to send ring photos in a message, or tag them under the post directly! You can't get any more obvious than that.

4. Ask a trusted loved one for help!
Sometimes a third party can be extremely helpful, especially if you're too shy to talk to your partner about the ring directly. Whether you choose to enlist the help of your sibling, best friend, or closest cousin, you can breathe easy as you put your trust in them to secure your dream ring. Show them what types of rings you're deciding between and have them approach your significant other with ideas!

5. Create a Pinterest board.
Pinterest is even better than Instagram as you can publicly create a collection of photos and display everything in one place. Once you've gathered a fair amount of ring styles and ideas, you can send it to your partner directly or be not-so-subtle and leave the page open on their desktop. Either way, they'll have tons of photos to use as a reference when purchasing your dream ring!
