Surprise proposals are certainly romantic, but when it comes to such a monumental purchase as an engagement ring, it can be wise to have both partners on board in the decision-making process. For women who want to be involved in the design and leave nothing to chance, engagement ring shopping together can be the best move. Even if the ring itself might not be a mystery when it comes time to pop the question, it's guaranteed to wow—and be something she's sure to love for life. Here are five things to know before engagement ring shopping with your partner.
It's the modern move
Shopping with your partner has become the modern standard for engagement ring design. This ensures that the bride-to-be is getting exactly what they love without any worry.

This way, your partner never knows when to expect it—though you know they will love it.
It's a personal decision between you and your partner
How do you determine if the co-designing route is right for the two of you? Engagement ring shopping together with your partner is a preference and something that should be agreed upon, keeping in mind that the most important thing is that the person wearing the ring loves it. If you decide to shop together, keep in mind that everyone is different and be sure to practice patience. Some can narrow down their options immediately while others require a few appointments and extra time to make their decision.
