How to Choose if You’re Planning a Surprise Proposal

  • Take notice of her existing jewelry. Is it primarily yellow or white?
  • If she wears rings, what is her preference of style?
  • Is she active? If so, select a setting that will protect the diamond – such as cathedral or contour.

Determining Ring Size

  • Borrow one of her rings (make sure it fits the right finger!) and bring it in to determine the size
  • If you are unable to determine the correct size, have no worries! Just bring the ring back to Tobin and we’ll resize it for free!

The Wedding Ring Set

Some engagement/wedding band sets are designed to fit together. This is ideal for women who like symmetry. Other women prefer to choose a ring that does not identically match the engagement ring. Wedding bands can range from 18K gold or platinum bands to diamond embedded bands.

For the Groom

Let’s not forget about the groom! Men’s rings are of equal importance, although not quite as involved as a woman’s ring.
