An engagement ring is such a special piece — it’s a special representation of two souls & the unique love they share. The most beautiful part about choosing a ring is that there are no rules that you have to follow. It’s all about finding that special piece that just feels right.
I think paying attention to what your partner really wants is very important. In case, you don’t know, it’s okay to have them be a part of the process of picking out the ring. A ring that your partner loves is important — one spends a good amount of money on it and it’s a shame if the person doesn’t want to wear it every day.
However, there are a few things you should keep in mind before you start shopping for you engagement ring.
Shape matters the most
The shape indicates the actual geometry of the stone, as opposed to the cut, which relates to the angles of the appearance of the stone. The various shapes as talked about by Shreya are princess cut, emerald cut, round cut, oval cut & heart cut. Shape is something that you should consider even before the 4C’s, you must know the shape your future fiancé loves.
Consider the metal
When it comes to the band, you will have a variety of metals to choose from. One of the most popular choices nowadays is Platinum. There is also gold, which come in several colors, including white, yellow and rose.
Make sure you pay close attention to the 4C’s: Clarity, Cut, Carat (Weight) & Color. Each of these C’s contribute to the quality & price of the diamond.
Spy on her style
There are many styles to pick from while choosing an engagement ring. You can figure out what style your girlfriend might like by looking at the jewelry she likes to wear. Your future wife will be wearing this ring 24/7, so make sure you choose something that fits with different outfits (Indian & western). However, the safest option will be to go for a classic model.
So that was a lot of information to take in… wasn’t it? But I am sure that this is going to be helpful to you!
