A Few Things to Know Before Buying an Engagement Ring
Congrats! You’ve found the love of your life and have decided to spend the rest of your life with them. The hard part is behind you; what’s left now is popping the question.
The engagement ring you buy for your soon-to-be-fiancé will be an important decision – both financially and emotionally.
Getting the right ring isn’t always the most romantic of experiences. There’s the research, the MASSIVE hunt before you finally settle on the right one.
But if you know these few things before you buy the ring, the process will be a much happier and relaxed experience for you. So before you hit “Add to Cart”, let us enlighten you on what you should know.
Know Her Lifestyle
The diamond engagement ring you get for her is something she’ll wear for the rest of her life. It will be on her left-hand finger wherever she goes. A lot of women don’t remove their engagement ring during work, chores, or hobbies. So you’ll have to consider how the ring will fit in with her everyday lifestyle.
- If she works in a field where she’ll have to use her hands a lot, e.g. chef, landscape designer etc., pick something that doesn’t have an elevated diamond in a prong setting, as that tends to catch on things.
- Is she a sports-person? Does she play a lot of hand-based games, such as volleyball, tennis? Consider if she’ll have to remove her ring whenever she plays and choose accordingly.
- Does she have a green thumb? If she likes getting her hands dirty in the garden, or if she has a more artistic leaning and always has paint smeared on her hands, go for a solitaire diamond in a prong setting as that is easier to clean.
Know Her Personal Style
How does she express herself with her style? Does she like flashy, over the top jewelry or is she more of a subtle, barely noticeable kind of jewelry wearer? Notice the kind of jewelry she likes to wear and what style she prefers.
Know Her Ring Size
This might seem like a tiny detail, after all, picking the right diamond is what it’s all about, right? Wrong.
If the ring size is wrong, not only will it put a damper on things when you propose, you’ll have to return it to get it re-sized. So to avoid disappointment, secretly swipe a ring that fits her from her jewelry collection and have it sized. Once you know the right size, finding the right ring will be easy.
