Looking On The Bright Side of Trends

Selecting an Engagement Ring

Picking out the best engagement ring can sometime feel like natural assignment more so if you trust your intuitions very well. Unfortunately, you may end up discovering unpleasant surprises because you can’t just accidentally walk in a jewelry store expecting to get a flawless engagement ring. Don’t forget that an engagement ring is one of the special accessories that your spouse will be adorning every single day so if you fail getting the right one, it will mean that you will be wearing an accessory that you really don’t like hence wasting money because it won’t be worn as expected. Considering these guidelines when choosing an engagement ring can go a long way in saving you both agony and regrets from your purchase in future.

The first and most important is on taste and preference. This is easier if the engagement ring is yours. But if you’re choosing it for your partner, then you will need to have spent some enough time with them to know their style and the kind of things they like. As much as some people act on a hunch sometimes hoping their partners will like it because of having a good taste, it is recommendable to avoid rushes and get a value for your money by choosing wisely.

You should also think about the size of ring you want to purchase. This one is tricky to get right too especially if you’re buying it for your partner and you want it to be a surprise. Fortunately, there are a number of ways you can use to ensure that you get the size right without spoiling the surprise. One way can be covertly sneaking out their rings taking them to a jewelry store for referencing. With this, you are guaranteed that the new ring will fit perfectly. You may also choose to go with the more dishonorable approach of tying a thread around their finger as they sleep, and then afterward marking the dimensions of the string. Thankfully though, most jewelry stores know that there are chances of getting the size wrong and therefore offer a resizing service either for free, or for a small fee based on their terms and conditions.

The last but definitely not least consideration is the budget you’re prepared to spend on the ring. The cost of an engagement ring can greatly vary from the cheap and low-quality ones that barely maintain their sparkle for a week, to the obscenely expensive ones that the “high and mighty” buy to make a statement. Luckily though, the value that a ring possesses is ultimately determined by its wearer and its cost is not always a direct determinant of how stunning it looks. Try to find the right balance between price and value.
