Finding the person you want to spend your entire life with is no less than a blessing. You want to tie the knot with a memorable wedding, with moments you can cherish for a lifetime. While the venue and the dress are important aspects of your special day, the engagement ring plays a far more sentimental role in it.
It is precisely why we have jotted down the steps you need to take in order to purchase the perfect engagement ring for your fiancé. Let dive right into it.
While the price of the jewel does not reflect the love you have for your better half, you still need to set a budget, so you don’t go overboard and spend your life’s entire savings on the ring. Bear in mind that you have to save up for the wedding preparations, a honeymoon, and a lot more.
Gold or Diamond
This is another key area to go through while browsing an engagement ring for men or women. You need to choose whether you want to go for a gold ring or a diamond one. While the choice is based more on your aesthetic preference, bear in mind that if you are opting for gold, it is recommended to buy a low karat (preferably 16k) gold since higher karat gold rings can be soft and lose their shape over time, not to mention their tendency to get worn out more easily.
The Four Cs of a Diamond Ring
An engagement ring for women or men comes in countless different styles. Once you’ve determined the budget, you need to go through the four Cs, i.e. Clarity, color, carat, and cut of the diamond. While opting for the color of the diamond, we recommend staying closest to F (flawless), which denotes flawless clarity. As for the color, you can choose between D to Z, where D represents colorless. Carat is merely the weight measuring unit of a diamond. The higher the carat, the more expensive will your ring be. The cut of a diamond determines its true beauty. Craftsmen at TheSBjewelry prepare diamond rings with the finest cuts to bring out the ring’s beauty.
Ensure the Size
Determining a ring size is of utmost importance. You don’t want to end up getting a ring that doesn’t fit in your fiancé’s finger. For this, you can either take her ring size from her friends or family, or just go for the average ring size (5-7) for most women. As for an engagement ring for men, the average ring size is 10. Again, you can always ask your fiancé or their friends and family to avoid inconveniences later on.
