Committing to a lifetime of love, support and Faithfulness.

However, advice of a reputable and hopefully family owned jeweler is fine... And they will know how to ask you the right questions that will help you pick a timeless piece for her... Or maybe even design one... Which is even bigger... You want her to melt when you ask her, design a one of a kind ring specifically for her!

Speaking in confidence to her father first, asking for his blessing... Is also a wise idea
And will set a lasting, good & mutually respective tone with your future in laws, which is more important than most give credit.
are you married?

and two, what if her family doesn't own a jeweler? Why would some random jeweler know better about her tastes than her, her friends, or her family?
