Engagement rings are one of the most important purchases you will make in your life. After deciding that it’s time to take your relationship to the next level, looking for the perfect engagement ring for your partner is the next challenge you should overcome. Your partner will wear this for a long time, so take the time to select the perfect engagement ring.
There are many available options for engagement rings out there. We recommend that you come up with a plan before going directly to a jewellery store or adding an item to your cart online.
Whether this is for a surprise or your loved one wants to be part of the selection process, here’s how you can choose the right engagement ring.
Look for Inspiration
Finding inspiration online for which engagement ring to buy is a walk in the park. Jewellery websites are the best avenues to look for styles. You may also browse through social media sites such as Instagram and Pinterest to see which ones would get your attention. Diamond engagement rings are the usual option, and you may see a lot of bride-to-be’s posting about it.
Moreover, asking for help from the family or friends of your partner can also limit your choices. They can even ask directly (without spoiling the surprise, of course).
Match Your Partner’s Personality and Finger Size
When the four-word question happened first, you can ask your partner directly about the style of the engagement ring. Checking for the ring size would be straightforward as well. You may simply walk in a jewellery store together or ask for a sample that you can base from when meeting with a private jeweller.
However, should you go the traditional route of a surprise proposal, then choosing the right engagement ring requires a bit more effort. Try to remember if your partner has given hints previously. If none, then analyse the kind of jewellery your partner is into. Would it be vintage, rose gold, sapphire or diamond engagement rings? After diving into that, work your way on getting the correct ring size. You can secretly borrow their ring or tie a string on their ring finger discreetly.
Pre-made or Custom-made?
Custom-made engagement rings cost more than their pre-made counterparts because of the extra time and attention needed. Pre-made rings would be available almost immediately when needed. You can find these in jewellery stores or online. This is an excellent option for couples who want a short engagement.
Bespoke engagement rings, however, would be modified based on your preferred design, budget and deadline. That means that it would take time to finish but it will be worth it. The date of your proposal may need adjustments because of this. You just need to find a reliable jewellery expert to create your dream engagement ring.
Find a Trustworthy Jeweller
Locating certified and trustworthy jewellery and diamond professionals is a must when you want custom-made engagement rings. Choose a team who knows the fundamentals of, let’s say, diamond engagement rings and can offer you the best service that would suit your needs. Also, look for someone who offers value-added services such as insurance, certificates, and servicing.
You can also reach out to mobile jewellers if you want the convenience of jewellery experts coming to your home, office, or anywhere you need them to be. With private consultations, you can discuss your requirements like the cut, colour, stones, setting or carat freely.
Choosing the right engagement ring for the one can be difficult at times, but hearing your partner say “Yes!” will make all the hardships disappear. Remember that this piece of jewellery signifies love and commitment to the person you chose to spend the rest of your life.
