Selecting an engagement ring for the woman you want to spend the rest of your life with is one of the most nerve-wracking, stress-inducing, and overwhelming moments in your life. To make it a wee bit easier on you, here are some foolproof tips for picking out ‘the ring.’
Listen to jewelry talk.
If your beloved is like most women, chances are, she might have some inkling about your impending proposal. Call it women’s intuition or whatever you want but women can feel these things. She’ll most probably drop some hints about rings she likes and don’t like, so it is your job to pick up on her subtle hints such as when talking about how she likes her friend’s engagement ring or how gaudy that celebrity’s ring is.
Enlist the help of her friends, your friends, and family.
Consult your family, her family and friends — considering they know of your plans to propose—and friends who’ve previously been there and done that. Ask for recommendations and consider taking some of them with you while ring-shopping.
Learn the 4 Cs.
The 4 Cs correspond to a diamond’s carat, cut, color, and clarity. You’ll be paying a considerable amount of cash so make sure that you’re getting your money’s worth and nothing less.
Consider going custom.
While it’s undeniably easier to purchase a ring as it is, you also have the option of purchasing the diamond and setting separately, and asking the jeweler for custom engagement rings in Salt Lake City, aaajewelryutah.com says.
Remember that it’s all about what SHE wants.
You may prefer platinum, but she likes gold, you may prefer a pear cut, but she likes an empress cut. You may be the one shelling out cash, but it’s her engagement ring and she’s the one who’s going to wear it forever.
Once you’ve selected the perfect engagement ring, next up — the proposal. Organizing the proposal is equally important as the ring selection, so you have to make sure it’s memorable. Much like how you put your time and effort into buying the engagement ring, make certain that your proposal will be something she’ll love and remember ‘til death do you part.
