Know Her Ring Size
If you know she has a ring, you can borrow it. You can also sneak on her things so it will be a surprise. Although, you do not always have to bring the ring with you to the store. She might notice if it is gone. There are a few tricks that can work fine in getting her ring size as you borrow her ring for a quick while. You can bring a pen and paper with you and trace the inner circle of the ring on the paper. You can also just bring a pen. Simply slide it down to your own finger and draw a line on the part where it stops. Another brilliantly weird idea is to bring a soap with you. You can press the ring onto a soap. The mark it leaves will be a good guide for measurement.
If she does not have a ring, you can measure her finger size while she is asleep. You can possibly use a rectangular paper. Place it on her finger, let the ends meet and fold. You can also try to do an estimate of her ring size.
Choose the Stone Setting
When choosing the best stone setting for silver wedding bands, you have to consider your partner’s lifestyle. For active women, it is best to get less ornate rings that feature secure stone mounting. As much as possible, the ring should not be easily knocked off by things nor easily caught on things.
On the other hand, if your partner is girly and glamorous, you should probably get her a statement type of ring. You can also get rings that feature intricate details and higher stone profiles.
While there are tons of design choices you can get for her engagement ring, there are some basic setting types you are likely to encounter:
Solitaire is one of the most popular stone settings for engagement rings.
This is mainly because it allows the stone to shine brighter.
Solitaire setting is also known as prong setting.
This setting uses prongs to set the stone into the ring band.
Since it is set with prongs, the whole stone is more exposed to light which means that more brightness will be visible on the stone.
If you want to get a solitaire ring, we suggest you get a ring that features 4-6 prongs. A six-prong setting is more secure than four prongs.
Halo Setting is an attractive option for engagement rings.
Halo setting features a large stone in the middle and tiny stones on its edge.
These tiny stones are arranged in a pave.
The ring is brighter and prettier as more sparkle is visible in it.
