4. Your partner takes an interest in the jewellery you are wearing:

When it comes to engagement rings, there are an abundance of things for your partner to think about! Silver or gold? Round or oval diamond? Full bling or beautifully understated? Many partners snoop through the jewellery box to determine the preferred style. So, if you find your jewels have mysteriously been moved, get the wedding venue booked!
