Buying An Engagement Ring? Here Are A Few Things To Keep In Mind

Buying An Engagement Ring? Here Are A Few Things To Keep In Mind

Special bonds need special celebration. Hence, while buying an engagement ring, one needs to be not only careful but also proactively attentive to find the band that their love deserves. While the process is a little time consuming and a long chain of trying and rejecting, in the end, it all seems worth the hassle.

Here are a few things to keep in mind while looking for that perfect ring :

Your Spouse’s Taste

It is important to keep in mind that the piece of jewelry you are buying is for your spouse and they are to wear it all their life. So it becomes crucial that they like what you bought them. Thus, make sure the ring is in sync with the taste and liking of your spouse. It should be reflective of their persona. Thorough research about designs and stones can take you a long way.

The Authenticity of The Stone

The authenticity of the stone is crucial so that you get what you paid for. Be attentive towards the grading of the stone. A stone is graded based on the 4 Cs : Color, Clarity, Cut and Carat. They’re graded from D to Z, the best one being D. The purpose of grading is only to let the consumer know about the “rarity” of the gem. Hence, it should not be used as the prime factor to determine what you are buying. The physique, skin tone and personality of your spouse influences the kind of stone they can pull off better.

Efforts And Creativity Will Pay Off

While there are many designs from skilled and well known designers available in market, you needn’t limit yourself to just those options. If you can’t find your ideal design that resonates the feeling, you can try collaborating with designers to create the right one. Although it will demand effort and thorough research, the result may be pleasantly surprising. In the end, it’s the gesture that matters.

The Size Doesn’t Matter Until It Does

True that the size of the stone may not matter in financial terms, it does matter when it comes to the wearer. The stone or gem should be complimentary to your spouse’s frame. For example, people with small built can elegantly pull off smaller gems. For taller people with fuller bodies, bigger stones with chunkier bands make for better accessories. Thus keep in mind what size is ideal for your spouse.

The Band Is As Important As The Stone

The stone is the centrepiece of the ring, yes. But the band is important as well. Pay attention to what kind of band can better emphasize the beauty of the centrestone. You can even choose a band and decide the centrestone accordingly. Wedding bands without a centrestone are also becoming more and more popular these days.
