You have a great relationship. You love her and she loves you and you want to take this relationship to the next level. To the marriage! Obviously, you have to purpose first. And in order to make this proposal her dreams come true, an engagement ring is crucial. But how are you going to buy it? How are you going to pick the best ring for her style? Do you really need to spend more than five grand? Do you need to secretly check her out for her choice of rings? How should you observe? Do you need to consult her friends? Don’t be overwhelmed by all these questions. Here are some tips to help you choose the best engagement ring to make her dreams come true.
Carefully Observe Her Style
Although there is a new trend for couples to choose rings together, most of the women still want to be surprised when they see that rock. In order to know what she likes most, be sure to do some exploration. You should observe her style and maybe, do a little search about what ring is best for her kind of clothing style and pay attention to the other jewellery she wears. Is she a platinum/silver ring girl or is she more of a yellow-gold one? Does she like vintage jewellery or opposed to simple, classic pieces? Do your observation for a couple of weeks and take little notes in your mind to decide.
Define The Limits Of Your Budget
Engagement rings may seem costly to you, especially if you have a tight budget. But I assure you, that will worth the simile on her face and tears of happiness she will shed. When you calculate your budget, assume that you'll spend about 3 percent of your total wedding budget on the rings. Starting from 800- 1000 $, the price can go up to; well it can go up to any level if you are rich enough. There are also diamond rings that have synthetic artificial diamonds that are really indistinguishable. They are not fake diamonds; they are ordinary diamonds without natural process of diamond formation. Engraving of embellishments can add to the cost if you want to personalize your ring. Also if you want handcraft embellishments, this is usually pricier.
Consult Her Friends
Well, who knows you better than your friend? Okay, you can observe your girlfriend to get the hints that may help you but her friends can give you some crucial information. Or at least they may add some valuable advice to your decision and help you find out which ring is best for her.
This might occur to you like a weird criteria. But believe me, it is a thing. Usability is very important for a ring. Most people rarely take off their wedding bands but they sometimes take off their engagement rings mostly because of the heaviness of the diamond on it or other reasons. For instance; do you want your fiancée to wear her engagement ring all the time or do you want her to remove it time to time because she is not completely comfortable with it? To avoid that, you have to pick a usable and comfortable ring with a reasonable diamond size.
Right diamond size is very important as mentioned above. But the size of the ring is also important. She will wear this ring throughout summers, winters, exercise and pregnancies when her fingers swell and contract from heat, cold, water retention or weight gain. To find the right size that will fit best, despite all of those changes, schedule your final ring fitting at a time when you're calm and your body temperature is normal. This way she can wear her precious ring comfortably, whatever the conditions are. By the way, if you don’t know her finger size, ask her friends about that too, they will be glad to tell you.
