Fenton | When to buy your engagement ring guide | Proposal Timeline

1: Ring Research

There’s a lot to consider when buying an engagement ring and choosing the perfect jeweller. Luckily we’ve put together lots of useful information from “What is wed-fit” to “How to choose your perfect gemstone”, to make this super simple and straightforward for you! 

When: It’s never too soon! But we recommend at least 4 months before popping the question.

2: Get Creative

Head to the Fenton website and play around with different options, to customise your engagement ring. This is a great way to start narrowing down your choice of gemstone, style and cut! 

When:  3-4 months to go

3: We’re here to help

Our expert team of concierges and gemmologists are on hand whether you want to ask questions via whatsapp, email or call. Or book in for your virtual or in person consultation to view and try on the rings! 

When: 3 months to go

4: Order your ring

We always recommend doing so with a little time to spare to ensure the process is as stress-free as possible - ideally at least 8-10 weeks before the proposal! This allows us time to source your dream gemstone and craft your setting, and have it delivered to you ready for the special moment. 

When: At least 2 months before 

5: Time to pop the question

Over to you! From at home to destination proposals - all that’s left to do is ask the all important question… And with a Fenton ring, we’re sure they’ll say YES!
