Buying an Engagement Ring
When purchasing an engagement ring, you’ve seen that there are many things to consider. Below the most important points explained before you make this big decision in your life.
Know your Budget Limits for an Engagement Ring
It is important to know how much money you are going to be able to spend on the rings you end up buying. Remember it does not really matter how much or how little you have because there is no set price that must be spent on a ring to make it special. The specialness of the ring comes from you and your partner and the love you have for each other.
There is no need to spend a month’s worth of paycheck or goes into huge amounts of debt in order to get the ring- a cheaper ring can mean just as much. Only you and your partner will be able to set the budget in terms of what you want and what you are able to afford when it comes to your rings.
Selecting Engagement Ring Stones, Diamonds, and Metals
When it comes to the process involved with shopping around for the rings there are many ways to go about it. Some people still like the surprise factor and do not want to know what the ring will look like while others today like to be involved in the process. Whether you are shopping alone or with your partner you can shop online, in jeweler stores or in specialty centers that design custom rings for you.
If you are looking for diamonds and other stones, be on the lookout for the four big C’s- Cut, Clarity, Color, and Carat. The metal used on the band can also come into play, especially if your partner has a preference for color such as gold or rose gold, or if they are allergic to certain metals like silver or nickel. It is important to shop around and take your time before you make your final choice so you can be sure you are getting the best ring that you can afford.
Think About Future Ring-Care and Maintenance
Another important thing that you should keep in mind while shopping for your engagement ring or women’s wedding rings is to think about the future use, care, and maintenance of the rings. Yes, a ring with many diamond sets and an elegant design may look stunning but how hard will it be to keep up and clean properly? A large ring with a huge stone may look glamorous but will it be too big and bulky for the normal activities your partner does on a regular basis at work or at home?
It is important to think beyond the initial surprise and love of the moment you present the ring to your special someone and consider how they will feel about the ring in 6 months, a year, and five years (this is not like buying a thumb ring!). You want it to look great and be something they love but you also do not want it to be a lot of work and trouble to keep it looking great. So it is important to think both short term and long term when you buy your wedding or engagement ring!
