Millennials engagement ring purchases

It’s no secret that Millennials are “starting” later in life than all the generations that came before them. From starting their careers, to moving house, to engagements and marriages; Most of life’s major milestones occur well into your 30s. How does this affect the process of buying an engagement ring?

Traditionally, the man meets the woman, falls in love with the woman, asks his parents for permission to propose to her, buys an engagement ring, and asks her to marry him. With this forward-thinking generation, a step has been taken from the traditional towards a more involved approach. Since millennials are more “mature” in age, compared to the average age of engaged couples in the past, it can be said that they know more about what they want and what they don’t want. Women are expressing the need to participate in the process so that their future fiancĂ© is not wrong!

I have seen everything from a couple equally and happily involved in the selection process together hand in hand excited about their future, to a very stubborn woman at Facetime conferences from work demanding what she wants while her passive boyfriend sits in our room. showroom ready with a credit card. in the hand. Now I am not here to pass judgment, but I will say this: this should be a mutual decision that you are both happy with. This new wave of couples choosing an engagement ring together deserves a lot of discussion because it can be very good or very bad.

There is scope for compromise. You are the traditional type of man. You want to woo her and surprise her with that magical moment of great revelation. She, however, is a modern girl who would like to have a say in how her ring will look. If your heart is on her seeing the ring for the first time when you open that box, there is a way to make them both happy. You and your loved one can make a list of all the things she would love to see on her ring. Before you go off on your own, you can also go window shopping. Ask him to point out some ideal rings for you. In this way, she feels that she has been active in the process and that her voice has been heard. You are happy because you are not flying blind and you can still stick to some tradition.

Create another bonding memory. If the suggestion above missed the mark, maybe sharing this moment together is the way to go. In fact, this could bring them closer together. Venturing with different jewelers to find the perfect ring as a couple can end up being another beautiful memory in your love story. You can watch your eyes light up with growing excitement and anticipation as you choose from the many options before you. She can see the desire in your eyes, wanting this to be the beginning of a happily ever after together.

You define what is “perfect”. There is nothing right or wrong about this momentous occasion. Only the two of you can decide what is perfect for you and stick with it. Forgive those who have their own opinions. After all, in the end, it will be you and her writing your life story together. Make sure it’s one you want to read over and over again!
