A Christmas Proposal

Christmas Proposal Guide

Christmas is a magical time of year, with an array of stunning decorations and glowing fairy lights almost everywhere you go. The festive atmosphere creates the perfect scene for a romantic Christmas proposal!

We all know Christmas is not just about the presents and great food! It's an important time to reflect and show appreciation for the special people in your life and be thankful for your blessings. This may be why Christmas proposals are so popular. It's an ideal time to show the one you love how much they mean to you, by giving them the best Christmas gift of all – a lifetime of love and commitment.

Choosing the engagement ring

With the festive setting already in place, it's time to find the engagement ring if you haven't found it already. If you're struggling with ring styles and what her style might be, explore our Engagement Guide, with key information on her style, ring sizing and styles, metal types and so much more! Rest assured that here at H.Samuel, we have a variety of amazing products and expertise to help you select the right engagement ring to help express your love.

Diamonds are the classic choice for engagement rings. If she's into show stopping glamour, a beautiful bridal set from our exclusive Perfect fit brand incorporates a stunning and perfectly matching engagement ring and wedding band. Set with diamonds for luxurious sparkle, a bridal set will be the star of the show at the Christmas party!

Classic diamond solitaires are traditional and timeless, and are sure to turn heads as you gather with family and friends over the Christmas holidays. Set within warm yellow gold or a cooler white gold or platinum, diamond solitaires offer a timeless style with a dash of sparkle.

For something extra special, our premium diamond range – The Forever Diamond offers exceptional sparkle with its unique flower cut. These branded diamonds have 73 beautifully proportioned facets which create a truly dazzling diamond.

Unique engagement rings

To celebrate this exclusive milestone in your relationship, you may wish to choose a more unusual ring. This could be a great way to show how well you really know the one you love. If she's far from traditional and looks to stand out, this is the perfect time of year for her to show off and draw attention to her unusual engagement ring.

Rose gold rings are beautiful and different from the commonly favoured yellow gold and silver tone rings. Or you could choose a two-colour engagement ring, combining yellow and white gold or rose and white gold, for ultimate unique style. Coloured gemstone rings are also a great way to commemorate the colourful, festive time of year, with precious gemstones, ruby, sapphire and emerald being the most popular. You may like to consider tanzanite, the stone associated with December!

An extra special touch

Christmas time opens up a number of ways to surprise the one you love with your proposal. If you're thinking of a public proposal, consider an announcement at the Christmas party, at a family dinner or gathering with friends. Christmas morning would be an ideal time, where everyone is filled with excitement and joy in opening presents. 'The box' could be the final gift you present to her, or for something a little different, you could hide the ring in the glittering Christmas tree.

If you're planning more of a private proposal, you could ask with a kiss under the mistletoe, or whisk her away on a snowy romantic getaway. If time allows, you may even decide to plan a fun Christmas treasure hunt, with a selection of small gifts for her to find, with the engagement ring box being the final surprise.

Whichever ring you choose, and however you choose to propose, this special time of year is truly magical, making the moment you get down on one knee even more memorable and significant, for many happy years to come.
