6 Tips for Buying an Engagement Ringby Jeremy Thompson Web Marketer
You’ve finally met the woman of your dreams and are sure she’s the one you want to spend the rest of your life with. Maybe you’ve even tried to follow tradition and asked her parents to give their blessings before proposing to her. But, know that the hardest part is yet to arrive as you still have to pick out an engagement ring which resonates the uniqueness of your relationship and love. To help make the process easier for you, here are six tips to ensure you get a ring she will treasure forever.
Decide on a BudgetWhen it comes to engagement rings, there are no rules that you need to follow per se. The age-old myth of spending three month’s salary is long gone. A professional jeweller will be able to help you find the best ring in an amount you’re comfortable spending. For this, however, you need to have an idea of how much you can spend before you start looking for an engagement ring. This way, you’ll be able to understand how much you can stretch your budget and make the most of your purchase.
Choose the Shape of the GemstoneDiamonds can be cut into various shapes, with brilliant round ones being the most sought after. This makes them the most expensive kind available on the market too. This is why it’s best to choose stones with non-traditional shapes such as ovals, princess cuts and cushion cuts as they’re pocket-friendly and will keep you from going over your budget.
Think About the Precious MetalWhite gold has historically been the most popular precious metal to match centre stones due to their versatility. But then again recent trends show us that rose gold has successfully overtaken this metal, owing its popularity to the femininity the colour provides. However, if both white and rose gold isn’t your partner’s choice, you can choose other metals such as platinum or yellow gold as well. The decision greatly depends on what your partner prefers. If possible, consult with those who are close to your significant other to know what the latter will love.
Know that the Design and Style are ImportantThe variety of designs available in the different precious metals can become confusing if it is your first time buying an engagement ring. Every design will probably look better than the one you saw before. In such cases, you should think about your fiancé’s taste and understand what they may or may not like. Also, consider if there’s anything in particular that she’s always wanted in her engagement ring such as a specific stone cut or colour.
Select the Ring SettingChoosing the style and setting can be the most difficult part of purchasing an engagement ring. Think about whether your partner would prefer something detailed or vintage, modern or sleek and understated or sparkly. You may also consider her sense of style and the kind of furniture and art she appreciates as it can provide some clues as to the kind of ring she would appreciate.
Personalize the RingCustomizing a ring is a popular trend. From embossing the ring with the engagement date to having your initials carved on them, you need to figure out what they’ll like best. If they’re the artistic type, you can take advantage of this and create a completely unique ring by collaborating with a jewellery designer.
These are some tips you can follow when you’re looking for an engagement ring for your significant other. By being a smart buyer, you can save money and ensure you’re getting something your partner will fall in love with as soon as they see it.
