Valentines in the Birmingham Jewellery Quarter
With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, you might have big plans for you and your significant other…
Whether you’re thinking of proposing or you’ve just gotten engaged, what better day to celebrate than Valentine’s Day? Especially if you’re going shopping for your engagement ring.
In this article, we’ll explore how to make the most of your Valentine’s Day experience with your soon-to-be fiancé and make it a day that you’ll both always remember.
Planning to propose?
In this day and age, it’s quite common to involve your future fiancé when choosing an engagement ring. After all, you want it to be perfect and it’s going to be on their finger so they should have some say in the matter.
But just because your proposal is not a surprise doesn’t mean the experience can’t be just as magical. Engagement ring shopping is a beautiful way to spend time as a couple, especially on Valentine’s Day.
Here are some of our top tips for engagement ring shopping on Valentine’s Day:
Valentine’s Day breakfast
Start the day the right way on Valentine’s Day and enjoy a luxurious breakfast. The Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham boasts many coffee shops and restaurants to choose from, and with all the jewellery stores you’re going to visit, you’ll need the energy!
Take your time
It’s all too easy to become sparkle-giddy and buy the first ring that you like. Try to remember that you have plenty of time to browse at your leisure, so try on as many rings as you have time for.
This way you can get a good gauge of what’s on offer and more importantly, what type of ring you like. You might just surprise yourself!
Stick to your budget
It’s always wise to be aware of your budget. Just because you’re in love doesn’t mean you have to break the bank.
