Other frequently asked questions
Should I insure my engagement ring?
We always recommend that you insure your engagement ring so that it is covered in the event of loss, theft or damage. You can either take insurance out with us at the time of purchase or add the ring to your home contents policy.
When and where should I propose?
When you propose is entirely up to you, but most people choose a significant date such as an anniversary or another day that means a lot to you as a couple. Surprisingly, given its romantic connotations, we’ve found that Valentine’s Day isn’t the most popular day to propose.
Fun fact: Leap Day (29th February) is traditionally when women have the opportunity to propose. Don’t let that stop you though; we say, if you’re in love and the time is right, it shouldn’t matter who proposes!
As for the perfect place, it’s a good idea to think about how public you’d like the proposal to be. If your partner is a shy, private person, it might be better to pop the question on a quiet country walk rather than in the middle of a busy restaurant.
Think about activities and places that are special to you as a couple. If you both enjoy hiking, why not take a romantic walk along the Jurassic Coast before proposing over a picnic lunch? If the two of you have a favourite spot (perhaps the place you went on your first date), why not take them there? The perfect proposal in one that is heartfelt and reflects you both as a couple.
