Ring Guides
Finding the Correct Ring Size

Finding the perfect ring size is essential when it comes to comfort, aesthetics, and functionality. Wearing a ring that is too tight can cause discomfort, swelling, and even pain, while a ring that is too loose might slide off your finger and get lost. Furthermore, a ring that is not properly sized might look unbalanced or disproportionate on your finger, affecting its overall appearance. If you're buying an engagement or wedding ring, getting the size right is even more important. 

Innovative Hints and Gentle Communication at Home:

Strategically shared screenshots of your favorite Lisa Robin rings or bookmark lisarobinjewelry.com on your shared tablet can be unspoken nudges. These silent hints can spark intrigue and excitement.

When engagement rings become the topic, use words of admiration rather than demand. Comments like "I adore the elegance of halo settings" are both subtle and effective.

While you’re eager to wear your dream engagement ring, ensure your hints are infrequent to avoid undue pressure. Remember, it's as much about the journey as it is about the ring.

Designing the Ring as a Couple

Designing your engagement ring together is a very special bonding experience for you as a couple. Lisa can determine the design and select gemstones to create your dream ring. But what about the surprise? After an initial consultation the rest of the process can remain under wraps. That dream proposal moment can be even more special with a ring your design together.

Drop a hint to your partner if you would like to be involved and share how the process works.


Navigating the path to your ideal engagement ring requires patience, tact, and effective communication. Trust the process, offer subtle guidance, and revel in the anticipation. With the right hints, your dream engagement ring will soon be a sparkling reality.
