Easy Tips to Get Engaged This Fall

2020 has been quite the year, but there’s still hope to end the year on a high note with a fall or winter proposal.

With a little planning now, you can plan the perfect fall or winter proposal to end 2020 with a moment to remember! At Acredo, it’s our passion to help couples design their perfect engagement ring and tie the knot. In this post, we are sharing our top proposal tips to help you take this next step with ease.

Like most big decisions in life, communication is key, and picking out an engagement ring is no exception. Even if the proposal will be a surprise, it’s a good idea to discuss a few key factors as a couple.

Your engagement ring will likely be your most-used, most-treasured piece of jewelry. It will be worn for years to come, through all seasons and all life events, so now is the time to explore, discuss, and try on different shapes, styles, and sizes to find a ring that feels just right for you.

We carry the largest selection of unique engagement rings in Denver, you’ll find every shape and size for your inspiration. We work within your budget to design your dream ring with any type of metal, shape, size of stones, and favorite elements. When you think of Acredo, think of custom rings at non-custom prices with German quality.

Start with the questions below and visit us when you are ready to find your dream engagement ring.

Chat about it early.
Even if you plan on making the proposal a surprise, now is a great time to casually bring it up in conversation— fish out little details to see if your partner would want their ideal proposal private or public, indoors or outdoors, and other important details. By bringing it up now, they are less likely to suspect anything when you pop the question later on!

Start with budget.
It might not be the first thing you want to talk about when considering a proposal, but getting an idea of budget is healthy and helps set expectations for both partners. There are a lot of engagement rings out there, and getting an idea of budget early helps narrow the choices and keep you on track.

Colorless or color?
Many couples are opting for engagement rings featuring a center or accent colored gemstones. Consider if you want only white diamonds, or if you’d like to include some color as a nod to your favorite color, birthstone, or the month you plan to marry. Consider sapphires, rubies, emeralds, or fancy-colored diamonds.

What about style?
It’s a good idea to get a basic understanding of different engagement ring styles to start off with. Consider a simple solitaire, a bold halo, or a pretty vintage design to get started. You can explore some of our favorite engagement ring styles on our Instagram here.

How about shape?
There are a number of different diamond shapes or ‘cuts’ available, and having an idea of which you prefer (round, pear, heart, and more!) will make it much easier to find the perfect gem for your engagement ring. The diamond shape might be the most visually significant choice you make, so be sure to consider shapes that reflect your personal style.

About that ring size…
There are three common ways you can measure your ring size right at home so you can finally get your ring measurement right, for good. Be sure to measure both at the beginning of the day and at the end, as your fingers are prone to change size slightly throughout the day. Find out how to measure easily at home HERE.

“I cannot recommend the wonderous Acredo enough. My husband and I had high hopes and a specific meaningful design for our wedding rings. We were discouraged after running into exorbitant prices for customs that did not resemble what we wanted, or finding rings that we loved, but were poor quality. After one phone call with Lena, we immediately recieved a design that was perfect, with a price we could afford. These rings are built to last, and we are so thankful for the friendly staff who turned a stressful search into an exciting and fun experience. Thank you Brina, Lena, and Acredo!” — Hannah Smith on Google
