With this ring

With this ring

Q. I'm planning to propose to my partner on Christmas Eve and want it to be a surprise. I've no idea what kind of ring to choose, what size to get or how to go about it, without giving the game away.

A. Laurie McGrath says: Laurie says: A surprise proposal is a wonderfully romantic thing to do. However, if you're considering a bespoke engagement ring it's not always a good idea to create a one-off piece without your other half being involved; after all they have to wear it every day!

We have a great solution for this dilemma, our 'Proposal in a Box'. For a small deposit, you receive a beautiful presentation box with handwritten cards inside showing your consultation date, your jewellery designer and even suggestions of places to stay over if you want to make a weekend of it. We may have already hand-drawn a sketch to start off your design or sold you a beautiful gemstone, which can all go in the box too. Then once you've popped the question, you and your partner can start your newly engaged life by designing your own bespoke engagement ring together.
