Trying to figure out your partner’s taste in engagement rings while hiding the fact that you’re ring shopping? If they use Pinterest (and they probably do), here’s how to make it your secret weapon in the search for that dream ring.
Pinterest is a brainstormer’s utopia, which is why it’s used by TONS of ring enthusiasts to virtually window shop. When your partner uses Pinterest (if they don’t, give them a nudge!), you have front-row access to exactly the rings they love. And remember, you can contact our customer service team at any time for hands-on help.
Quickly identify your partner’s ring style by identifying trends on their Pinterest boards. As you browse their ring pins, ask yourself which ring characteristics show up most often:
Head to James Allen’s Engagement Ring board and easily search rings by your partner’s fav categories. Once you’ve collected your ring inspo, save the pins to a secret board (more on that below). Share them with our customer service team and within minutes they’ll help you pin-point THE ring!

“I took all of the best elements from my fiancée’s Pinterest and combined them into this ring. She is absolutely over the moon with it.”
To follow your partner without them knowing:
“When the time was right I scoured her Pinterest page looking at photos she had collected over the years. Through these pictures I had an idea of what she liked.”
– Zachary T.
Once you’re following your partner, it’s super convenient to save all their relevant pins in one location. You can do this by saving their pins to your own secret board, or you can download their pins and save them on your computer – or both!
To ensure everything stays private, all you have to do is make your board secret. Just click on the pencil icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the board tile. A pop-up will appear. Scroll down and activate the option “keep this board secret.”
If your partner visits your profile, they won’t be able to see any of your saved pins on this secret board. Your secret will be safe.
“I immediately was drawn to one ring that I had seen on my girlfriend’s Pinterest page once… I knew it was perfect for her and she absolutely loves it!”
– Zahnlecker M.
How can you use Pinterest to collaborate with your partner’s friends and family? Invite them to pin to your ring board and comment on the rings you’ve found!
To get input from the people who know your partner’s tastes best, first search for your ring helpers via username or email – but don’t follow them. (If you do follow them, anyone can see you’re connected.) Then, invite them to collaborate on your secret board.
Once they accept, your partners-in-crime can help by adding ring pins and commenting directly on specific rings.
“My fiancée had a specific ring in mind (Which she made very well known via Pinterest) and James Allen was one of only a handful of online retailers to carry this specific design.”
– Curtis M.
