Find the Perfect Ring

First of all, to make the engagement special for your significant other, find the perfect engagement ring. Pay attention to your partner’s style of jewelry to get a good idea of what they like so you can match the ring to their personality.

Make sure that you get a band in a color and metal that they prefer, whether that is yellow gold, white gold, or platinum. You should also choose the cut and carat of the diamond to reflect your partner’s tastes.

An alternative to a traditional diamond that you may want to consider, is called a CVD, or chemical vapor deposition diamond. These gems are man made. They are grown in a lab over the course of about a month, and so they cost less than traditional diamonds.

CVD diamonds are of high quality and identical to traditionally mined diamonds. These diamonds will still have certain imperfections and different grades that are evaluated by a jeweler and affect the cost. Another advantage of a CVD diamond is that there are no negative impacts on the environment that can occur from mining practices.

Plan the Proposal

Once you have the perfect ring, you should plan your proposal. The day that you propose should be a special day that is fitting for you and your partner. Decide if you should propose in a public setting, or if the moment should be private between the two of you. Some people prefer a private engagement, while others enjoy being surrounded by their family and friends. This is a personal choice, and you may be able to get some insights into your partner’s preferences through casual conversation or by asking advice from those closest to her.

Choose the place that you will propose carefully. It should happen in a special place that has significance to you both. Make the proposal meaningful and from the heart. The words that you use don’t have to be fancy, they just need to be thoughtful and convey your deep feelings. Most people prefer that a proposal is a surprise, so try not to give away what you plan to do.

You may also want to ask your partner’s parents for their blessing before you propose.

Bobbi Kristina Brown, Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s daughter, announced that she had got engaged to Nick Gordon just last week.

Bobbi Kristina Brown, 20, already pressed fast-forward to the honeymoon as she’s been enjoying a very public PDA with her “brother” fiancé Nick Gordon in the warm Florida water.

She has been showing off her shapely body and her affection for 24-year-old Nick Gordon on her summer break.

Nick Gordon is the boy Whitney Houston took in when he was 16.

However, one person who isn’t pleased about the big announcement is Bobbi Kristina’s father, Bobby Brown.

Bobby Brown, 44, told TMZ that he’s not happy about the news and is irked that Nick Gordon never called him to ask for his daughter’s hand in marriage, but he did add that he wants her to be happy.

Rather than celebrating her news, Bobbi Kristina Brown came out of the traps to defend herself last week.

Bobbi Kristina Brown and Nick Gordon’s relationship has been the subject of scrutiny and a fair amount of eyebrow raising since Whitney Houston passed away in February 2012.

And so Bobbi Kristina Brown tackled the scandal in the post on her Facebook page last Wednesday.

She writes: “YES, we me nick are engaged. I’m tired of hearing people say <<eww your engaged to your brother or if Whitney was still alive would we be together or would she approve of this>>.

“Let me clear up something, we aren’t even real brother and sister nor is he my adoptive brother. My mom never adopted him. In fact, mommy was the one who even said that she knew that we were going to start dating. My mom knows me better than any of you.”

Bobbi Kristina Brown continued: “A lot of ‘yall are saying that y’all are only saying this all out of love. Which is bull because if that was so, all you would want is for me to be happy. 

“People need to seriously stop judging my relationship. Pretty sure it’s my own decision who I want to be with.

“Yes, my relationship may not be perfect. We will have rough patches, just like every other relationship.

“And we have had our rough patches. You may or may not agree with my relationship. You may or may not respect it. Judge me, go ahead.

‘Your opinions are yours and mine are mine. It is my life and not yours. The decisions I make have nothing to do with you. Goodnight.”
