Given the fuss some women make over engagement rings, choosing one she’ll love seems like an impossible task. Here are some tips on choosing a ring she’ll love almost as much as she loves you.Know Your BudgetDespite what you may have heard, there’s no rule when it comes to setting a budget. After all, there are always extenuating circumstances. If you and your girlfriend are saving to buy your first home or planning to go on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Europe, spending two months of your salary will be impractical. Choose a budget that won’t put you into debt, and make sure you’ve set this before you enter the jeweller so you won’t waste time looking at engagement rings you can’t afford.
Know Her Style
It’s becoming increasingly frequent for couples to choose a ring together. While this guarantees your future wife will have a ring she loves, it involves sacrificing the moment you take your girlfriend by surprise and show her how well you know her with the perfect engagement ring. Of course, to master the art of the perfect engagement ring, you’ll have to learn a lot about her style. Take note of the jewellery she currently wears, such as whether she prefers understated pieces or wants the world to see her style, and whether she usually wears silver or gold.
Guessing your girlfriend’s ring size is fraught with peril. Imagine planning the perfect proposal and then finding you can’t get the engagement ring on her finger – or worse, it falls off immediately and you lose it! Resizing isn’t a cheap venture, either.Jewellers are usually able to provide you with a ring size guide. Borrow a ring you know she loves that fits her well and you’ll be able to find out quite easily. Keep in mind what finger she wears it on, as most women have different sized fingers on the same hand.
There’s more to the band and setting of engagement rings than you may think. The band can come in a variety of different metals, including platinum, gold, silver, rose gold, and more. Consider your partner’s style as well as the advantages and disadvantages of each metal. Some are more durable than others, while some won’t dull as quickly as others. Do a bit of research yourself and ask your jeweller what they recommend.
The diamond itself is possibly the most important part of the engagement ring, though of course some engagement rings come with alternates to diamonds – and there’s nothing wrong with this. Decide what your girlfriend will prefer and then consider the cut, clarity, colour and carat weight of the diamond you choose. There are some jewellers who can hand make engagement rings, meaning the diamond of your choice can be placed in the setting of your choice.
As a financial and sentimental investment, the devastation that comes with a lost, damaged or stolen engagement ring can be huge. Find out whether you can add the ring to your home contents insurance, or take out a separate policy for it.Take your time choosing the perfect ring and don’t be afraid to ask your jeweller for advice. And remember – you don’t have to buy a ring during your first shopping trip
