How to Pick the Perfect Ring for Your Partner
Purchasing an engagement ring and preparing for an unforgettable marriage proposal can be an overwhelming feeling. It’s an important occasion!
Plus, an engagement ring is a once-in-a-lifetime investment, and you want to be knowledgeable so that you make the right buying decision. Whether you are considering building a custom engagement ring or buying a ready-made option, this guide is key to finding the ideal engagement ring.
Below are a few tips on how to pick the perfect ring for your partner.
Consider Their Lifestyle
When searching for a perfect ring for your significant other, keeping their lifestyle in mind is crucial. Remember, they will be wearing this ring every day, so the goal is to pick something that seamlessly becomes a part of their life.
Your partner's lifestyle influences which ring style they will want to wear. If they work with their hands, you may want to avoid gemstones that can come loose and opt for a simple, solid metal ring. If they are super active, go for extra durable metals or other materials which can take the strain.
Know Their Preferences
Everyone has a preferred style when it comes to rings. There are so many shapes, sizes, and colors to choose from! Knowing what your sweetheart likes is crucial.
Does your partner prefer diamonds or a different gemstone? If you opt for a diamond, note that there are many styles and shapes available for you. Additionally, be aware of your partner's preference for vintage, classic, or modern things. Their style can be reflected in their ring.
Measure Their Size
Buying an engagement ring that fits perfectly is the best feeling. It isn’t hard for a jeweler to resize a ring up or down a little bit, but why bother with that hassle? You’ll want to be as close as possible to the ring size.
One way to figure out your love’s ring size (if your partner hasn’t told you already), is to take a ring he or she already owns to a jewelry store. The jeweler can check the size of it for you.
Consider the Price
Rings prices vary according to size, shape, and carats. All of these factors affect a ring’s price. Before you begin shopping, assess your budget.
From there, weigh your options. Some diamond cuts are relatively more expensive than others, and you can achieve the look you want in a variety of ways. Ask a jewelry specialist if you need help!
Match It With a Wedding Band
Eventually, the engagement ring you choose will likely be paired with a wedding band. Consider in advance how the two rings will fit together, according to your partner’s style. You can buy a set of rings that are designed to fit together, or buy rings separately. Each couple will do this in their unique way.
We’re Here to Help!
Noticing the jewelry your partner wears will give you an indication of what they prefer. Moreover, you can consult a friend or family member for advice if you want to surprise your partner.
