Choosing the Best Engagement Ring

A proposal will not be complete without an engagement ring. It’s full of symbolism, most notably of your love and commitment, so you want to get the perfect one for your partner. It’s a necessary and expensive purchase, so here are some tips you must consider when choosing the best engagement ring:

1. It’s all about them

There are many pretty engagement rings to choose from, and you may be carried away by the diamonds they contain. What you should remember is the person who will wear it for life. Think about their style and personality, and it will be easier for you to find the right ring for them.

2. Find out what they like

Ask their best friend or family if they have an idea about what your partner likes to wear. You can also look at their current jewellery collections and fashion sense, and get an engagement ring that matches them.

3. Know the size

You don’t want to ruin the proposal when the ring will not fit on their finger after they said yes to your proposal, as that would be a total mood killer. Before you go on your quest to finding an engagement ring design, know your partner’s finger size.

However, how do you measure their finger size without them finding out about your plans? It’s tricky, but there are ways. One, you can ask their friends to check their size for you discreetly. You can also try to get a ring they wear and use a ring sizer app to measure the size. Alternatively, you can make a smart estimate on the size. Make sure that it can be adjusted later or exchanged for the correct size ring.

4. Buy the best ring for your budget

An engagement ring will be exposed to wear and tear because your partner will wear it every day, forever. Buy the best ring you can get for your budget. Look for the best quality, you don’t need to go overboard with the spending. Consider what you are willing to spend for an iPhone or a car, and go from there.

5. Choose the metal and diamond that suits them best

We recommend choosing an engagement ring that is gold or platinum because they are the hardest precious metals. Silver is too soft and can be easily deformed. Platinum, on the other hand, has the hardest heirloom quality and understandably one of the most expensive. Gold is tough and versatile and perfect for engagement rings. Platinum is silvery-white, while gold comes in white gold, yellow gold, and rose gold.

For the diamond, traditionally the best option is a classic round brilliant-cut solitaire, which is the sparkliest of all the shapes, as it also looks stunning on any finger. Think about what your soon-to-be fiancée will like. There are plenty of options available!
