Honestly, there are so many options for a romantic proposal, but first, find out if she prefers a:
Public or private proposal?
To pull off the perfect surprise proposal, you’ve got to figure out if your partner’s into a grand public affair or a more private moment. Here’s how to suss it out without giving the game away:

Picking the ultimate engagement ring
Choosing the right ring is a big deal! Here’s how you can do it:
- Suss out her style and figure out if she’s into classic, vintage, or modern bling.
- Sneakily find her ring size – borrow a ring she won’t notice is missing.
- Set a budget and stick to it.
- Focus on the 4Cs (carat, cut, colour, clarity) when selecting the diamond.
The 4Cs are most commonly used to evaluate a diamond’s quality. Essentially, the carat determines the weight, the cut determines the sparkle, the clarity refers to the amount of imperfections in the diamond, and the colour refers to how white or yellow a diamond appears.
Now, let’s talk about the icing on the cake – LUMOS by ZCOVA Diamonds. These babies take the sparkle to a whole new level. You’re going to love them, and most importantly, she definitely will!
