A spokesperson said: “Buying jewellery for your other half is hard enough as it is.
“But when you’re asking someone to marry you, it is a big gesture that you need to get right and it all starts with the ring you buy.
“If you really have no clue, it might be worth dropping hints or simply asking a close family member what they might like.
“You could also take more notice of the jewellery they already wear or take a look in their jewellery box for inspiration.”
