How To Choose The Right Engagement Ring

Posted on

Are you in the market for an engagement ring? A proposal is one of the biggest steps you will ever make in a relationship. It's a tradition that when you propose you need to be prepared with a beautiful diamond ring. 

However, if you have no idea about exactly what you should be looking for when selecting a diamond engagement ring, take a look at what you need to bear in mind when choosing an engagement ring.

Select the Shape

You will need to decide on the diamond cut that you like best. The price of the engagement ring is highly dependent on the cut of the ring. Round cuts tend to be the most expensive ones available. Other cuts such as the marquise and pear shape will cost you less.

This means that you can get a larger diamond with a pear or marquise cut than you would for a round cut. If you are on a budget you need to decide whether the cut or the size of the diamond is most important to you.

Select the Right Band

The next part of the selection will be to decide which band you want for the engagement ring. There is a classic yellow-gold silver band available. However, bear in mind that you can also select white gold or platinum as well. Platinum looks like silver but that doesn't mean that it is as affordable as silver. If you select a platinum band, be ready to pay significantly more. 

Think About the Fit of the Wedding Band

The wedding band is probably not high on your priority list when you are selecting an engagement ring. However, it is something that you should consider when buying an engagement ring. 

It can be problematic when your wedding band does not fit seamlessly with the engagement ring. Talk with your jeweler about this to ensure that you don't have an issue with a wedding band when the time comes around. If possible you could purchase the engagement ring and the band together. This way you will be sure that everything will fit together beautifully.

Get Documents

When you select the perfect ring, you must collect the certification documents for the diamond you have bought. You must ensure that you get a certificate from a recognized laboratory stating the particulars of the diamond. This way you can be sure that you are getting the right grade of diamond that you have paid for.

Selecting an engagement ring is one of the most exciting and expensive things you will ever do. Be sure to do due diligence when making your purchase. This is the best way to make sure that you select the right engagement ring for your partner.
