How to choose an engagement ring
Choosing an engagement ring can be a very stressful event for some men. Trying to figure out what a lady likes and adores is not a straight forward and simple as some men would like it to be. Regardless of that fact, an engagement ring is still a promise to seal the relationship with marriage and is a symbol of never ending love. This obviously means that it is a big deal.
A SIMPLE GUIDE: HOW TO CHOOSE AN ENGAGEMENT RING
There are many factors to take into consideration when choosing an engagement ring.
Firstly, make sure you understand the whole process of ring making. If you want a custom ring made, you need to take the manufacturing time into account. Starting the process a few days before you intend to propose is not the best idea. It is best to start in advance and make sure there is enough time for all the steps.
Choosing a design plays a major role in choosing an engagement ring. The sky is the limit when it comes to choosing a desired design, but settling on just one design can be quite a challenge. If you can’t decide on a single design, talk to your designer and have them guide you in combining the look of your favourite designs into one elegant master piece.
The color of the metal is also an important choice to make. For people with warmer skin tones, a choice of rose gold or yellow gold might be more favorable, because of the highlighted undertones. For cooler, more pale skin, white gold, silver, or platinum are more complementing metals.
The shape of a diamond is also very important. A round cut diamond is usually fitting for any type of finger, while an elongated shape like the oval or pear cut can make short fingers appear longer and more elegant. Naturally if the fiancée has a particular inclination to a certain shape of diamond, then that would be the best choice. Altering a rings design can also enhance a diamond shape.
Practicality is also high up on the list. If an engagement ring is too bulky with sharp edges, it could get snagged on clothing or linen and damage the ring or her clothes. Your ring designer will advise you on more practical alternatives of your chosen design. Practicality must also be kept in mind when I comes to choosing the shape of a diamond, this contributes to the overall practical design of a ring. Practicality and elegance are not mutually exclusive. A very elegant design can be very practical while retaining its femininity and grace. This comes down to the design once again. It is thus imperative to ensure that you are 100% happy with the design before giving the green light.

A final point to keep in mind is a wedding band. When choosing an engagement ring, make sure that the wedding band fits with the engagement ring. Having a beautiful engagement ring next to a poorly thought out wedding band takes away from the initial brilliance of the engagement ring. Some rings are designed as two halves of one beautiful ring. The engagement ring and wedding band must complement each other to achieve the beauty and brilliance every bride deserves
An engagement ring is a very special piece of jewelry and choosing one should be a joyous experience. That is why we recommend buying your engagement ring from a trusted jeweler.
As hard as men try, it is not always possible to be spot on with guessing a ring sizes. If a ring is either too big or too small, many jewelers will do the first resizing free of charge.
When embarking on the adventure of choosing an engagement ring, keep the above in mind and you are sure to have the perfect ring.
