Maybe you are the planning type, or maybe your partner has always wanted a holiday proposal. Whatever the reason, now is a wonderful time to start planning your holiday proposal— especially if you still have some research to do or want to begin the custom design process for your engagement ring.

From Thanksgiving to Christmas to Kwanza to Chanukah to New Year’s Eve, the end of the year means friends and family gathering together for celebrations.

Our tips to begin planning your holiday proposal now:

1.     Discover her engagement ring style (and ring size!).

Start to look at the jewelry she already wears. Does she wear minimal jewelry, or does she choose bold, statement pieces? Does she love the simplicity of a diamond, or is her jewelry box full of different colors?

It’s also a great idea to ask trusted friends and family members. It is likely that she has mentioned different styles she prefers— and maybe even some she doesn’t!


2.     Explore different engagement ring options.

While your engagement ring turnaround time might be quick, it’s always better to begin your search early in case you want a custom piece or decide to include existing jewelry in your design.

While you might have an idea of what you like, seeing and feeling different designs might point you in a whole new direction! Stop by our showroom or look around online here.


3.     Brainstorm the specifics.

With at least an idea of your engagement ring in mind, now it’s time to scope out the specifics of your holiday proposal.

Where? Ohio has beautiful landmarks ready for a romantic holiday proposal! Consider your favorite park, restaurant, or other location that has meaning for your relationship. 

When? Are there events over the holiday season where loved ones will be near? Even if you don’t want to propose in front of others, you might enjoy having them near to celebrate with after!


“Goldsmith Jewelers has been our family’s jeweler for over 14 years now. We’ve purchased many items from them, including our engagement ring, wedding rings, three watches, necklaces, and a few earrings. We have also had many jewelry repairs done over the years such as chain repairs, ring sizing, ring cleanings, watch batteries etc. which are always done on the premise and never shipped out. Even when we lived out of state, we waited for a trip back to Ohio to visit Kurt (the owner) to purchase gifts. The many family and friends who we’ve nudged to check out Goldsmith have become faithful customers like us.  We feel Goldsmith wins people over by teaching you about jewelry, how to care for it, and providing a service whenever it is needed.  Don’t be fooled into buying junk from the big chains that won’t take care of you! Check out Goldsmith Jewelers, we refuse to go anywhere else for our jewelry needs!!!” — Rory B. on Yelp
