I want to propose to her. However Iโ€™m not sure if I should propose with a marriage ring or an engagement ring. I know that engagement is the first step before getting married, but we wonโ€™t have a wedding ceremony, (not anytime soon anyway) so is it necessary to buy both engagement and wedding ring?

Should I just buy one ring for the proposal (engagement)? Or should I just propose with a marriage ring, something we can both wear as we will get married anyway.

Also i know the classic is a diamond ring, but is it necessary? Are there other good alternatives?

If I could get some answers it would be great ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜†
