How To Choose The Perfect Engagement Ring

For majority of men, choosing the perfect engagement ring for the love of their lives can be a daunting task. An engagement ring does not only signify the love you have for her, but you also want to show her how much she means to you and that she worth much. The fact that she will be showing off the ring to her family and friends also adds to the pressure of finding the perfect ring. So how do you go about getting the perfect engagement ring?

Establish a budget

First things first, you need to establish a budget for buying the engagement ring before you step in a jewellery store. Don’t go all out to impress your fiancé only to end up in major debt that may bring financial strain down the line. There is nothing romantic about that. Setting a budget helps the jeweller to show you available ring options that can fit within your budget. Remember, just like buying a car you can negotiate on the price of a ring once you establish what you want. Even if you don’t have much money to buy her the biggest rock, it is the thought behind this gift that counts.

Know her ring size

This can be a bit tricky since you plan to make your engagement announcement a surprise. One way to get her ring size is by asking one of her friends to get one of her rings so that you can take it to the jeweller. Another way to get her ring size would be to sneak in her jewellery box and pick a ring she does not wear often and measure her ring size. Imagine going down on one knee only to be followed by an awkward moment where the ring doesn’t fit her.

However, if it happens that you get her a ring and it does not fit, you can always go back to the jeweller and ask them to resize the ring. To avoid extra expenses on resizing, it is better to get the ring size beforehand.

Choose the engagement ring band

There are a variety of metal bands you can choose from for the engagement ring. The most popular ones include rose gold, yellow gold, white gold, silver and platinum. For you to get the perfect band, you have to know your girl’s style first. If she is a lady who is always on top of the latest fashion trends, then you need to get her the silver band. For a classic girl, you can safely choose the yellow gold band. You also have the option of mixing different types of metals to get the perfect blend you want.

Select a quality diamond

The focal point of an engagement ring is the diamond. If it is your first time shopping for a diamond, you need to get acquainted to the 4C’s all which are factors that determine the cost and quality of a diamond. These 4C’s include color, cut, carat and clarity. Out of all these factors, the cut is the most important factor because how well a diamond is cut will determine its sparkle. You need to visit a reputable jewellery store that specializes in diamond rings in Toronto to ensure you get the most ideal diamond engagement ring.

Select the diamond shape

Once you select a diamond, now you need to choose the shape of the diamond. You need to put in mind your fiancés preference before selecting a shape. There are several shapes you can choose from. Some of the common shapes include round, pear, princess, oval and heart.

The next step after getting the perfect engagement ring would be to plan on how to surprise her with the good news. This is a once in a lifetime moment for both of you so ensure that you make it special!
