I have been speaking to the wonderful Chelsea at Peaches Beauty in Hemel Hempstead and we have come up with some tips for taking the perfect ring photo.
1. Lighting is everything!
If you can’t go outside, head over to the nearest window for some natural light. Phone photos in a dimly lit room are pretty much guaranteed to be blurry and we want to show off that sparkle! Fluorescent and yellow light bulbs aren't much better. And try to watch out for those tricky shadows.
2. Get to know your ring
Get caught up in the excitement, stare at your gorgeous new ring and gorgeous fiancé! Enjoy the moment and take it all in! Get to know your ring, experiment with the angle of your shot so you capture the most amazing qualities of your ring. Obsessed with the shape of your stone? Try a shot from directly above but skip the flash!
3. Select a pretty background and a prop
Unleash your inner stylist and look for a Instagram-worthy backdrop, beautiful skyline, coffee or throw blanket or be in it yourself or as a couple!
Keeping it candid, holding a cup of tea, bunch of flowers, glass of bubbly or your fiancés arm is a great way to avoid ‘the claw’ hand.
4. Get your nails done.
Not because your hand needs to look perfect, but because pampering yourself is fun! Whether you go for classic red polish, a nude hue, or add a little sparkle to your ring finger, a fresh mani will add instant style and polish to your engagement ring selfie.

5. Take lots of options, but only upload one!
Less is more remember, you want your ring to stand out and look awesome.
6. If all else fails, use a filter or enlist the help of your BFF
