If you plan on proposing to your other half, you want to make sure you have the best chance of having your proposal accepted. How can you do this? By finding the ultimate engagement ring! Of course, that isn’t all. But it is a big aspect of it. This post is going to help you to find the ultimate engagement ring:
SET YOUR MAX BUDGET
Start off by setting the maximum amount of money you can pay for this ring. You can then go about finding the best value for money. If you don’t have an idea of what you can spend, you can end up spending more than you can really afford. You’ll have a wedding to pay for after this, so bear that in mind!
HAVE AN IDEA OF WHAT YOUR’RE LOOKING FOR
Don’t go shopping with no idea of what you’re looking for first. Have an idea of what you might want. The color metal, shape stone, size stone, etc. It helps if you know what sort of style your other half likes, so you can look for rings that fit in with that and go from there.
LOOK ONLINE AND IN PERSON
Don’t just do one or the other. You stand way more chance of finding a great deal if you look for engagement rings both online and in person. Certain brands, like Ritani engagement rings can be found online, and others in store.
The more flexible you are when it comes to style, brand, and similar aspects, the better. This way, you stand the best chance of getting the most value for money. Obviously you want the ring to be perfect, but you don’t want to pay more than you should for it. If you want to propose on a certain date, like your anniversary, I highly recommend giving yourself plenty of time to find the right ring. You more than likely won’t find it in one afternoon.
DO SOME RESEARCH
Research is essential if you want to find the best ring for your partner. You’ll want to stalk their current jewelry collection to see what they like, and you absolutely must find out about the 4 Cs. This will help you to determine whether a ring is worth the money or not, as it helps gauge the authenticity of a diamond. You should never, ever go for the first diamond you see.
LISTEN TO YOUR PARTNER
Your partner may have hinted about engagement rings a few times, so really try to listen. Do they talk about a particular style they like? Listen whenever they say something that could help you in the selection process. They might even mention things they like in magazines. Pay attention to them!
Use these tips and before you know it you’ll have the ultimate engagement ring ready to present to your partner. Then you just need to decide the best way for you to propose! Lots of luck to you – leave a comment to let me know how it goes!
