The pressure is on. You want to propose now, but you’re struggling with many questions that you don’t have answers to, and that takes time. You want your proposal to be a surprise, but learning about the 4Cs of diamond quality: color, clarity, cut and carat weight takes time. Finding the perfect ring also takes time.
Plus, your biggest fear may be purchasing a “forever” ring without consulting your fiancé and finding out that she doesn’t love it. If you include your fiancé in the decision, timing the proposal with the right ring may be impossible.
Here's a short-term solution.
Put your worries aside. A placeholder ring or “will you” ring — a temporary stand-in for a forever engagement ring — may be the solution. A placeholder ring can put your mind at ease if you’re planning a destination getaway to propose and want to avoid the risks of traveling with an expensive ring. It may also be a good option if you are waiting for a custom ring to be made. You may even have to prioritize some financial obligations — such as buying your first home together. And . . . the good news is that a placeholder ring doesn’t have to be expensive.
Buy your placeholder ring at King’s and apply the cost toward your forever ring.
When you’re ready to purchase your “forever ring”, we will help both of you select the perfect ring by providing you with all the information you need to know about diamonds and other precious gemstones, their shapes and sizes and different metals that can be used. If you purchase your placeholder ring from King Jewelers, the purchase price of your placeholder ring can be applied toward the cost of your forever ring — unless of course — you choose to keep it.
Take the first step in your special adventure together.
Picking out your “forever ring” should be a special moment. A placeholder ring is a great way to keep your proposal a surprise, and still ensure that the engagement ring you purchase is the ring of your finance’s dreams.
