You’ve found the special someone and you can’t wait to put the engagement ring on their finger. But just like the clothes you wear, the kind of interior design you prefer, everyone’s idea of an engagement ring will be different. Sometimes the bride to be will slide in subtle, or not so subtle, hints of what kind of ring she would like. But sometimes if the proposal is a total surprise, perhaps there are no hints.
