TACORI Answers the Question: "Should Engagement Rings Be a Surprise?"

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - November 8, 2010) -  When it comes to the proposal, many people are conflicted on whether the engagement rings should be a complete surprise, or whether the woman who it is intended for should have input on the ring style. TACORI, the leading designer in platinum and diamond engagement rings and wedding rings, sought to get to the bottom of the age-old debate, with a TACORI Poll asking, "Should the engagement ring be a surprise?"

TACORI found that although many women love the romantic idea of a surprise, fewer than 25% of women want the proposal to be a complete surprise. Almost 70% of women agree that SHE should have some sort of input on the ring -- but that the proposal itself should be a surprise. A small percentage, 6%, want to jointly plan both the ring and the engagement with their partner.

In addition to 231 respondents to the poll question, TACORI's Facebook page had 302 interactions on this question, and 152 comments. So how do future brides balance their desire to have input into the ring, and their wish to be romantically surprised? Here are some of the TACORI Facebook fan comments:

  • I like the idea of proposing with a center stone and picking out the rings together.

  • A "helped" surprise. I think you should tell/show him what ring you want and then he should actually go out and get it for you when you least expect it.

  • I do believe it should be a surprise but I don't see anything wrong with leaving picture hints around the house just to give him a li'l help...

"We've learned that women very much like the surprise aspect of the proposal, but it's still extremely important that the engagement ring reflects her personal style," said a TACORI representative. "If you are getting ready to propose, look for hints, such as she's friends with TACORI on Facebook; she follows @TACORI on Twitter; or she's bookmarked"
