Getting married is something everyone looks forward to. This starts by courting the woman you love and then proposing marriage to her. To seal your relationship with her, you need to choose the perfect engagement ring that she will cherish for life.
For most men, this is perhaps the only time you will step into a jewelry showroom. This is a big investment for your relationship that your fiancé will remember forever.
First things first, you need to do a little background check. As your to-be fiancé is going to wear the ring daily, it should tick all the right boxes when it comes to her expectations.
Here are some tips that’ll help you in the process.
Get to know her finger size
If you are planning for a surprise proposal, you will have to find sneaky ways to get her finger size. This includes borrowing one of her current rings to check its size or asking a trusted friend to take her to a jeweler to get the size. Whatever happens, you do not want to be in a situation where the ring does not fit despite your best intentions.
On the other hand, if you are getting hitched in an arranged setting, getting her finger size shall not be such a problem as you too would have to return the favor.
The question- how to choose the perfect engagement ring? – starts with some research from your end. Her engagement ring should be unique, one that would remind her of you whenever you aren’t around.
To get such a customized diamond engagement ring, you have to start with understanding diamonds. Yes, this may be only once that you make such a purchase, but when you do, you need to get it right on the first attempt.
Start by knowing what she desires- covertly ask what type of diamond she likes, whose diamond ring she fantasizes about having, her preferences, and so on.
When you have all this information, you can then proceed to buy the diamond to get your customized engagement ring made.
As this diamond is for daily use, you got to choose one that isn’t too big or expensive, what matters is how practical it is for daily use.
Though you could buy a diamond yourself, it is recommended that you consider your jeweler to know what works best. He would guide you to take the right diamond based on the 4C features of the diamond (Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat), its exact use, and the current market prices for diamonds.
This is just half the battle won. Your next step is choosing the right metal and design for the ring.
Choose the ring metal
There are various options available to you- yellow gold, white gold, platinum, silver, and so on. Check what she wears daily- if it is more of white gold, it is best to play it safe and opt for a white gold ring. Also, ask her indirectly which type of engagement ring she would want- this can make you doubly sure of her choices.
Whatever you choose, it is best to go with an alloy of platinum or gold as this makes the ring durable.
Decide the design
There are many options available here- you could opt for a ring that highlights the diamonds or use a design that seamlessly integrates with the ring. The latter is best for those who have an active lifestyle.
Base it on your budget
Exactly how much are you willing to spend on your engagement ring? Based on this, you can adjust the diamond, metal use, and other features of the ring to match your budget.
It is always recommended to be frank with your jeweler about your budget. You would want an engagement ring that would be ideal for daily use. It shouldn’t be too fancy and expensive nor too simple.
