How to get engaged?
To the first big step you have to take to become a true couple … To get married! But how do you commit yourself?
T H E E N G A G E M E N T, it may have different meanings to all of us. There are those who take the engagement a little lighter, and think that it does not necessarily have to lead to the next step. I have a good friend, and the best he knows is to commit himself, of course he has found the love of his life now. But he thought it was romantic to commit himself because he thought it made them more close, so he managed to commit himself 5 times before finding the right one, and I have never seen anyone happier.
But then to the next category that takes a lot more seriously on the engagement, I can probably say that I’m counting myself here. In any case, I want to try to only commit myself to my one and only dream prince and then marry him shortly thereafter.
Changing engagement rings with each other is to show the world that you are belonging to someone. That one is simply promised to someone. One can say that it means being more than being “just together”.
The engagement tends to be a joint decision, it is mostly in Scandinavia, then you usually exchange rings over a cozy dinner or take the opportunity to do it on a foreign trip. While as in the US, for example, it is usually the man who will surprise with a marriage proposal. I think it’s a little more romantic when the guy surprises. But this tradition is starting to come more and more to Sweden and Scandinavia. I have begun to notice that among our customers that the guy wants to surprise and they shall be as secretive as possible. Fun! ?
Now which rings to choose? The classic engagement rings are smooth and in gold; yellow, rose / red or white gold, often matching model, but nowadays it is common for the lady ring to have some stones set in it. Rings of Sweden Collection offers classic gold rings, very beautiful and stylish engagement rings. It is also common to choose engagement rings in a fringed material such as titanium, black zirconium or ceramics.
But to step number two; M A R R I A G E, maybe it may be a little scary, it’s for life.
But imagine what a wonderful one! You have found the perfect one and just you are going to spend your life together, could it be better?
Now you have to think of a few things; the planning of church or place, dress and food. Not forgetting the wedding ring which it is mostly or always a stone ring. This ring must match the engagement ring in height and then it will shine a bit extra of course. People usually choose to spend a little more money on the wedding ring.
But should the man not have a wedding ring? It is a matter of taste. If you don’t by matching wedding rings, and the lady gets a stone ring, then the man usually has a similar wedding ring as his engagement ring but possibly another color of gold or another width or he engraves his wedding date in his engagement ring. It depends!
The whole reason behind wearing a ring on your finger symbolizes faithfulness and friendship. It should be worn on the ring finger.
