Finding the perfect Valentine’s ring and how to plan your proposal - Friar House

Finding the perfect Valentine’s ring and how to plan your proposal

Having a particular Valentine's Day is a very old tradition, thought to have originated from a Roman festival. Traditionally flowers, cards and chocolates were exchanged between loved ones but over the years the 14th February has become a popular day to give a special gift of jewellery to show your love and is a popular day to propose to your loved one.

Here at Friar House we have a huge range of antique jewellery that can be gifted and we specialise in antique engagement rings. We have vintage rings from over the decades, ranging from the most beautiful Victorian diamond and turquoise five stone ring and the two stone diamond white gold and platinum, cross over ring.  

Asking someone to marry you is both exciting and nerve-wracking. That’s why it’s important to take some time to plan how you want to pop the question. Friar House have over 26 years of knowledge on antique rings. We specialise in vintage engagement rings and we can share our knowledge with you while you are choosing the perfect ring. We have a large range of art deco rings which are forever popular and there has been a spike in art deco engagement rings in recent years.  

If you feel pretty confident about your partner’s taste, or if they’ve hinted at what kind of a ring they’d like, you can talk this through with us in the shop, email or over the phone, you can even show us some pictures of a ring you know they like. A few things to consider are: what size they need, which colour jewellery they will want, and do you think they would want a traditional diamond, or something more unique, like an emerald or a ruby?

Whatever your question or query Friar House are confident we can help you find the perfect ring for your perfect proposal. For the ultimate 2020 guide to planning your proposal you can visit
