Engagement is in a way the beginning of the beautiful journey called the wedded life. It needs to be perfect, the venue, the attitude, the dress, the smile and the ring. Every girl dreams of a beautiful engagement ring from the time she starts dreaming about her wedding day. You have to make sure that you gift the right engagement ring to your girl. Now let me help you out with a few tips that will help you choose the right ring.
Diamond Engagement/Wedding Rings – If you can choose the right diamond ring for your girl, you can be definitely sure to see the sparkle of the diamond reflecting in her beautiful eyes. But it is really not that easy to choose a diamond ring, you need to know a few things before you can pick the right diamond. A diamond’s value depends on its color, clarity, cut and carat. It won’t make sense to get a huge diamond that is actually worthless.
The clearer a diamond is, the more costly it would be as it would have less impurities. Same with color, the more colorless the diamond, the costlier it would be.
Carat is the standard weight of the diamond. Big diamonds are rarer to find and hence are costlier. The most important fact though is the depth and height of the facets of the diamond and its symmetry as well. These are things that determine how brilliantly a diamond will shine.
It is best to consult a trusty gemologist before you decide on the diamond. Once you have chosen your diamond its time for the setting.
The Setting of the Ring – You can go with the solitaire setting which is also the most popular of engagement ring settings. It has a single diamond set on gold or platinum ring.
You can also choose a big diamond adorned with two smaller diamonds on each side, or a big diamond with tiny diamonds all around the band.
Plain Engagement Rings – Another very popular style is to present a plain platinum or gold or titanium ring or band.
If you are planning to buy the engagement ring on your own, it would be better if you study your beloved’s jewelry a bit. It will give you an idea whether to go for gold or platinum, a solitaire or a different style setting. You can also ask your girl friend what style she prefers, if you are not planning a completely secret affair. You can also ask her friends about your beloved’s preferences for an engagement ring. And before anything else make sure you know the size of her ring finger, flinch a ring that she wears on that finger if you can. You surely wouldn’t want the magic to fizzle out just because the ring you bought didn’t fit.
