The giving of Engagement Rings is one of the most enduring memories of your relationship. Not only are they an important element of becoming married, but they are also a long lasting symbol of your love and commitment to each other. Therefore, it is important to choose jewellery that is timeless and high quality
There are many ways to choose engagement rings. Since she’ll be wearing it for the rest of her life, you’ll want to make sure you get it right. One option is to propose without an engagement ring, and then go to pick it out together. While this is a sure way to know that she’ll like the ring, some people feels this is less romantic than the traditional method of ‘getting down on one knee’. They may prefer to bring her best friend or mother shopping with them, or have a romantic date of preview shopping for the ring. Another option is to study what kind of jewellery she wears – from what kind of metal, to whether it’s contemporary or classic, even perhaps “borrowing” a ring to take with you to the jewellery store, which will also help you know her ring size.
Choosing the perfect engagement ring can be a daunting task but an experienced and helpful jeweler can guide you through the process to ensure you make the right choice. Ensure you ask friends and family for their recommendations or alternatively you can look online for reviews and testimonials of specific jewelers. It pays to choose a jeweler who offers a long guarantee or warranty on their rings and who offers a repair service in case the ring gets damaged in the future.
As engagement rings are for life it is also worth investing in a classic design that will not date over time. Coloured diamonds may be in fashion now but will they be in 40 years time? It is also important to consider your partner’s personal style. Does she like vintage clothes? If so an ‘old gold’ diamond ring may be perfect for her. If she already owns a lot of gold jewellery it would not be wise to buy a silver, platinum or white gold ring as it will look mismatched.
There are many factors to consider when buying engagement rings but if you take your time and really do your research you will be sure to find her dream ring.
