Get your partner and your loved ones in on the act with our Drop A Hint feature. Because friends don’t let friends lack luster!
Okay, so you’ve found your dream engagement ring on JamesAllen.com. You’ve spun it around 360° until you were dizzy with sparkle. Perhaps you’ve even tried it on for size using our Virtual Ring Try-On. So now you know what you want, what do you do?
DROP A HINT!
Drop a Hint to Your Significant Other
The world of engagement rings is diverse and complex; it’s easy for proposers to get lost in the details. Avoid confusion and get your dream ring by sending the exact ring directly to your partner. But why limit yourself to only one ring? Send a handful of possible rings to your partner so you’ll be sure to be surprised and delighted when they propose with one you love!
Drop a Hint to your Friends
If you don’t want to tell your partner directly, get a loved one on your side! Who’s got your back? A friend? A sibling? A coworker? Send them the ring(s) you have your eye on so they can pass the info on to your partner. Either tell your SO to contact your loved one, or vice versa.
Dropping a hint to your friends is also a perfect way to get second opinions. Can’t decide between two rings? Send them to your posse for a vote. Not sure what the difference is between a comfort fit and a knife-edge band? Your cousin who worked in a jewelry store in college would know. Channel-set or side stones? See what your mom thinks. Who better than your partners in shine to give your SO a nudge and a wink to ensure you’re both in perfect sync?
Drop a Hint on JamesAllen.com
To drop a hint via James Allen‘s website, simply find a ring you like and click the “Drop a Hint” link above the photo of the ring.

Of course, with hundreds of exquisite rings to choose from, sometimes it’s hard to pick just one. If you find yourself torn between a number of sparklers, add them all to your wish list and share that with your SO.
First, either create an account or log in. Click the heart icon next to each ring to add to your wish list. Once you’re logged in, your preferred rings will be saved and you’ll be able to view them whenever you want.

Infinity Milgrain Diamond Engagement Ring
“For me, this ring is perfect in every way. I love the unique rhombus shape of the setting when viewed from above and the gorgeous infinity knot detailing.”
