Whether you are looking for an emerald cut ring, a diamond ring or a cushion cut vintage ring, here are a few helpful tips on how to buy an engagement ring!
An engagement ring is one of the most important purchases a person can make. The ring you chose should represent your style as a groom or bride and should be a symbol of your love as a couple. Whether you are involved in the process or you are allowing your future husband to pick the engagement ring, here are a few helpful tips on how to buy the perfect diamond engagement ring:
- Find the perfect stone – You probably are familiar with the four Cs (cut carat, clarity, and color) which is the basic diamond gradings system. Each diamond is rare and unique. Even if their 4 Cs are identical, no two diamonds are the same. The price is determined by the 4 Cs and in order to find the perfect stone, you need to determine a budget first.
- Choose your shape – The type of diamond engagement ring you choose should speak to your style and taste. These are 8 different ring shapes you can choose from – round, oval, emerald, asscher, cushion, princess, marquise, and pear.
- Maximize the budget – If you are included in the process of choosing an engagement ring, who says you can’t contribute to the final cost. Adding a few dollars more can get you closer to the ring of your dreams. If you can’t afford to add a few dollars more, we recommend you to go with a simple platinum ring and you can purchase a nicer wedding ring, once your bank account is refreshed.
- Decide how to buy – Searching for the perfect ring is really fun but you need to decide how you want to shop.
