DoFind the perfect natural light! Nothing makes your diamond sparkle like pure sunshine!
Don’tFeel like you have to take the perfect selfie right after it happens. Enjoy the moment!
DoGive a shout out the man and the jewelry store that made your ring dreams come true! They’d both love to share in your excitement.
Don’tShare or brag about price or carat weight.
Keep it classy, ladies.
DoMake sure to primp and polish! Getting your nails done is essential to showing off your new bling!
Don’tChose a color or pattern that will overpower your diamond. It can be distracting. Feminine pastels work best!
DoBe selective about your ring selfie. Find the perfect background that helps tell a story, or opt for something neutral that directs all the focus to the main attraction!
Don’tBlow up your friends’ timeline. One ring selfie is enough. If you're dying to post another image, select one that shows the love and excitement between you and your new fiancé!
DoShow off your bling to family in person or at least on facetime! This is an exciting time for all the people who love you!
Don’tLet Facebook, or any form or social media, be the way you let your loved one's know you’re engaged!
