How to Select the Best Engagement Ring
It is so beautiful when two people realize that they want to spend the rest of their lives together. If you are looking to propose to your partner, we are sure you have questions about what kind of engagement ring to select. In this article, we will help you decide the best option for you and the one you love!
How to Choose the Best Engagement Ring
Before we start with the technicalities, you will find a lot of clues on your partner’s Pinterest, social media, or you can ask their friends. In some cases, your partner already has given clues of what they like. Pay attention!
Set a Budget
Ring shopping can be hectic, especially for those who hate to shop. It is helpful to set a maximum spending limit. This will also help narrow down several options when picking out rings. You should keep your fiancé-to-be's desires in mind and evaluate a rough figure that is comfortable for you.
Know The 4 C’s
In order to make a good decision when choosing a diamond, consider the Four C’s- cut, clarity, carat and color.
Cut: Diamond cuts are graded based on their proportion and symmetry.
Clarity: Is based on laboratory standards, the GIA being the most accredited lab in the world. All crystal structures have some type of imperfection. It’s a matter of rarity.
Carat: Diamonds are weighed or sized in terms of carats (1 carat is 1/5 of a gram).
Color: Diamonds are graded on a scale from D—showing no visible color, to Z—showing visible yellow color. In the normal color range: the less color, the more rare.
Decide the Shape
If you have no idea what cut your significant other wants, seek out help from a friend. Deciding on a shape will make the process easier and faster.
The Ring Band
If you want a more modern look for your engagement ring, you can opt for a yellow or rose gold ring. If you want to remain traditional, then we suggest sticking with platinum. Also keep in mind that engagement rings may be worn alongside wedding bands.
You need to get the ring finger properly measured. If you want to keep it a secret, try measuring the ring they currently have in their jewelry box.
