      Hi Bernard! I can certainly help you find a matching diamond ring set for yourself and your bride. I think your best option is to have a look at the Matching Wedding Rings at Zoara – just go to the top of that page, hover your mouse over ‘Engagement’, then click ‘Matching Wedding Rings’.

    Speaking of partner’s taste, it would be hard if you don’t have an idea of what she really wants. So you either ask her directly about her choice of engagement ring or make a wild guess without comprising a ‘surprise’ proposal. If you choose the second option, the best you can do is just ask your girl’s family or friends for some advice. But be careful to spill the idea only to those who can keep it secret until the day you finally ask her to marry you.
