How to Choose the Right Engagement Ring
Shopping for an engagement ring doesn’t have to be a dreaded experience. With the right amount of knowledge about what to look for in a ring, coupled with your excitement about asking the girl of your dreams to marry you, this can be an enjoyable exercise matching your newly discovered ring expertise with the money you’ve got available to spend. In this article, you’ll learn some important things to consider when choosing the perfect ring for your beloved.
Spy on her style, the trend these days is for couples to ring-shop together, but if you’re more of a traditionalist and looking to surprise her with a ring she’ll love, be sure to do some reconnaissance. You can ask her best friend or sibling for help and swear them to secrecy. But if you are set on not telling anyone, pay attention to the jewelry she wears. Watch her for a couple of weeks and take mental notes to size up her style. There are the four big C’s you need to remember which is, cut, color, clarity, and carat, but even before that you should also know what shape your future fiancé loves. Shape indicates the actual geometry of the stone, as opposed to cut, which relates to the angles of the facets in the stone.
One of the most important things is to work your budget well; you should look for the best engagement ring you can without going into major debt. If she’s a size queen and your budget isn’t super-sized, go for a ring with a slightly larger table or surface, area. You won’t get as much sparkle, but a one-carat ring will look much larger if the stone isn’t as deep. And make sure you shop safe! Always start your jeweler search with recommendations from friends and family. And always find out what a store’s return policy is. You want to be able to at least exchange the stone if it’s not the one she wants.
