There are several ways to pick an engagement ring :

1. Go to pick it out together. While this is a sure way to know that she'll like the ring, some people feels this robs the engagement ring of some of its romance.
2. You can bring her best friend or mother shopping with them, or have a romantic date of preview shopping for the ring.
3. Study what kind of jewelry she wears from what kind of metal, to whether it's contemporary or antique, even perhaps "borrowing" a ring to help you know her ring size.

Style of Wedding Bands:
Follow your instincts with the look and design of your ring, while asking yourself if it will be a design you'll be comfortable wearing every day for the rest of your life. The antique wedding ring or antique engagement rings will be in style for years to come. Choose a wedding band that you feel is expressive of your style and personality.

Gold, Silver or Platinum?
Many couples choose the metal for their bands by matching it to their antique engagement ring. However, don't feel bound to this. A bride can choose to wear her engagement ring on her right hand, and wedding ring on the left.
Primary engagement ring and wedding band metal choices include :
• Yellow gold:
the most traditional of metals; for many gold is a symbol of the warmth and love of a marriage. Look at the mark inside the band to see what quality the gold is - usually 14k, 18k, or 24k. While 24k is the most pure, it is also the softest. If you work with your hands, you may want to choose 14k or 18k to prevent scratches.
• White Gold:
A hot trend because it coordinates with both silver and platinum jewelry, yet is cheaper than platinum.
• Platinum:
This very stylish metal is also the hardest metal, making it for many a symbol of enduring love. Also, because it’s not mixed with the lesser metals that gold is, platinum is safe for those with allergies. However, you'll pay more for platinum than for gold.
