An engagement ring is one of the most important and valuable purchases a couple can make together. However, the type of engagement ring you choose together should represent what you represent as a couple. Here are a few more tips to consider when choosing the perfect engagement for your proposal.
Determine What Kind of Budget You Have
Don’t assume that you “need” to spend at least two months of your salary to buy an engagement ring for your significant other. You should only spend what’s affordable to you. If your fiancée wants a large ring, but you don’t have the biggest budget, consider getting a ring with a large surface area. However, if your significant other doesn’t care much about the ring and more about both your futures, concentrate on an ideal budget to spend with.
Figure Out Their Style
Before choosing a ring to go with, consider the style they want for their ring. For example, if your significant other is a minimalist, get a simple right, but if they are more of a traditionalist, get a ring that they will adore for years to come. You should also consider asking their close friends and family members for help picking out what kind of ring to get. However, the jeweler should be able to give you plenty of help as well.
Finding the Perfect Stone
Here are four of the most important aspects that make up the “perfect” stone:
This refers to the “sparkle” of the diamond, not the actual shape, which ranges from poor to excellent. When a diamond is cut into a specific shape, it’s done to interact with a certain amount of light.
The carat of a diamond refers to the weight of it. The average diamond is one carat or 200 milligrams.
Even the most beautiful looking diamonds have flaws, such as inclusions. These small imperfections are rated on a clarity scale, from flawless to included. The smaller and fewer imperfections there are, the more the diamond will cost.
