Looking For the Perfect Engagement Ring?

Apart from buying a car and a house, the other biggest purchase of your life will be an engagement ring. We understand you dear gentlemen that it can be quite a struggle, and pretty scary. You want to make it just right for her, and the jewelry stores can feel like a giant maze in which you keep getting lost. What should you get to tell her you think of her? Here are some steps that will guide you to making the perfect choice.

Step One: It Is All About Her

Since most engagements are a surprise, it is important that you get everything right; or at least most of it. In order to pull off the perfect engagement, pay attention. Know what she likes. When you go to a jewelry store, what does she stare at? What does she keep mentioning? Look at her favorite jewelry, how are they; golden or silver with diamond or colored precious stones? Just look around, you will get plenty of hints as to what would make her happy.

Once you think you know what they’d like, it’s time to think about the size; you don’t want to give a ring that won’t go through the finger. Try out her favorite rings and see how they fit on you; discreetly of course. You don’t want to let the cat out of the bag just yet.

Step Two: The 4 Cs of Engagement Rings

One of the vital elements of a good engagement ring is the precious stone; everything about it has to be just right. But how do you get the perfect ring? Well, here are the pointers.

The Cut

Contrary to popular opinion, this doesn’t refer to the shape of the stone, but rather, the proportions and angles in which it is cut. The perfectly cut diamond reflects light from the multifacets to the top of the stone giving it the characteristic sparkle. For the perfect brilliant stone, make sure the cut is right.

The Color

Precious stones are available in a variety of colors, with diamonds being among the most expensive options. The color you choose will largely depend on the preferences of your lady. Be sure to try and find our which precious stones she likes.

The Clarity

This refers to the perfection of the stone. The truth is that you cannot really see the imperfection with your naked eyes; you only need an expert to guide you through this. The clear the ring the more expensive t is; be sure to stay within your budget.

The Carat

Have you ever heard of the phrase size matters? Well, the carat will determine that; it refers to the weight of the diamond; the heavier it is, the pricier it will be. However, you need not worry about the stone appearing large; an expert jeweler can make a stone seem larger than its weight. But before you go all out to get the biggest stone in the store, be sure that it is what will please your lady. Some ladies just don’t like big, dramatic shows; a simple, small gesture of love is what they’d prefer.

Step Three: The Jewelry Store

It is time to think about the ring style. Here is the perfect place to put into good use all the hints you have been collecting. Here are the common engagement ring styles.

      

Step Four: The Shape of the Precious Stone

You are spoilt for choice when it comes to shape, something that should not be very encouraging to you right now.

Step Five: The Metal Setting

This is as important as any other attribute, and is the part where you should pay attention to the most. Does your lady like silver, gold, or platinum? Well, the setting of a ring gives it character, class and elegance. Here are a few metal types that are commonly used with engagement rings. However, if your lady is one of those who love unique things, you are better placed thinking outside the box. But the most common metal settings are:

     

Keep This in Mind

If your family is keen on traditions, an heirloom would be perfect. The history that comes with it makes it even more valuable. But you can always decide to buy a new ring for your lady. When buying an expensive engagement ring, be sure to check out its real value. Ensure that you get and authentication certificate and have it insured.
