Sylvia LoboBuying an engagement ring can be considered one of the most important purchases someone makes. How do you capture the perfect ring to represent the beginning of a new journey? There are so many options in market for selecting engagement rings that the choices can easily become over-whelming. Luckily, with the right guidance and tips, we can provide a game plan to make the decision a breeze. Whether her style is classic, unique, modern, vintage or you aren’t sure, we’ve compiled a list of do’s and don’ts when considering buying an engagement ring for the soon-to-be blushing bride.Do’s:1.)Do shop around and browse online jewelry websites to get a good idea of what styles are available. It’s important to understand the various types of rings that are available in the market because an engagement ring is an investment you can build on and admire for years to come. 2.)You are most likely to find an engagement ring that you love if you take some time out to research what your partner likes. Remember, you are not shopping for yourself.3.)Learn the 4C’s before you go sparkler shopping. This is where you need to do a bit of serious homework. Don’t worry, it’s not rocket science. 4.)Know your budget. Properly evaluate how much you can afford to spend. There is no need to go into debt for your engagement especially when there are so many gorgeous options to fit every budget. Also, don’t be afraid to ask for a deal. Find out about promotions or credit offer incentives. Don’ts:1.)Never get embarrassed to ask for help. Ask your partner’s family to help you with the ring size and their preferences if you are unsure about it. 2.)Take your partner’s hands into consideration. If your significant other has short or wide fingers, choose a narrow band and an elongated diamond style such as oval, marquise or pear to give an appearance of length. But those shapes aren’t for everyone; check out jewelry she already wears for insight into her preferences.3.)It is important to take into account the lifestyle your partner has while choosing the setting for a ring. If your partner leads an active lifestyle, it is best to choose a ring with a low profile that won’t be susceptible to damage. A plain band is the safest choice but, if you choose a band with accent diamonds, select one with a secure channel setting. Also for you active men, consider choosing a band from alternate metal such as titanium or tungsten. These metals are much harder than gold and are scratch resistant, keeping your ring shining. 4.)Don’t buy the first thing you see. Even if you fall in love with a particular ring’s design, don’t be in a hurry and rush into buying something wrong for your partner. 5.)Life is unpredictable, which is why we always recommend that you get your jewelry insured. There you have it, the guide of do’s and don’ts to consider before you purchase the perfect engagement ring. Happy ring shopping!
