What if your boyfriend is thinking of proposing and wants to surprise you? How is he supposed to know what you want? Well in the past he might have asked your mom or your best friend. But what if their personal taste isn’t yours?
Pinterest to the Rescue
Now you can show him the details you love without having to be ridiculously direct about it. In this post I’ll show you how to use Pinterest to focus in on the design details you love for your dream ring.
If You’re New to Pinterest
Pinterest allows you to have an online scrapbook of pictures you find online. And pictures your have all over the place on your computer. Imagine having your engagement ring possibility pictures all in one place.
In your Pinterest online scrapbook you can have different boards like “cute cat pictures” or “places I’d like to go.” But for the purposes of this post you’ll want to make you “My Dream Ring” board.
Create your board just for engagement and wedding ring ideas. Easy intro to Pinterest.
Going Into Helpful Detail with Your Pins
Each picture you post has a place where you can write captions about them, like “I love this style of hand engraving” or “this is how I like my diamonds set, in the little side prongs” or “This is the shape of center diamond I love the most.”
You can pin pictures you find online or pin pictures from your computer photo files.
Having these engagement and wedding ring pictures that grab you all in one place with captions that describe what design element you like from each one, is a big step in the direction of having a unique engagement and wedding ring.
Pinning with Help From Other Pinners
It is very easy to find engagement and wedding rings on Pinterest. Just go to the search window in the upper left hand corner and type in “engagement rings.”
Once there search for details you love. Each time you re-pin a design be sure to write a caption describing what you like about it.
Remember, your boyfriend will need details. So will his jeweler!
Pinning From Online
Your pin button from Pinterest won’t always successfully pin a picture. Plenty of sites block direct pinning. But plenty of blogs and sites enable easy pinning. That is one of the reasons I suggest pinning from Pinterest. It’s just so easy!
Check Out My Pinterest Page!
Please go to my Pinterest page on wedding rings and re-pin from there. Also check out how on some of my captions I mention particular details I like on the ring pinned.
Share Your Homework on Pinterest
You can share a particular board with someone even if they are not signed up with Pinterest.
I recommend sharing your Pinterest board with your boyfriend, girlfriend and mom.
One Last Detail
Oh yeah, and make sure your boyfriend, mom and bestie knows your wedding finger size. All the homework in the world won’t help you be surprised if he can’t figure out your finger size. And for the record it won’t help if he borrows that ring you always wear on your right ring finger. Your left and right ring fingers will be different sizes.
May your Pinterest pinning lead to a more wonderful ring that reflects your taste and your love.
