Purchasing The Perfect Engagement Ring
When it comes to ‘popping the question’, most men have more to worry about than the answer. To sweep her off
her feet, it is important to be advised on the various technicalities in order to make your decision easier when
purchasing the engagement ring.
Firstly, you need to involve your partner. While it is romantic to surprise her, her taste may differ to yours. It is
advisable to choose or design the ring together, but this is not always necessary. “If you do want to surprise her,
speak to your jeweller about purchasing a basic solitaire ring. You could always return with your fiancé
to redesign her dream ring,” advises Jeremy Pinn, of Pinns Jewellers.
Always decide on your budget before making any other decisions. Setting a budget makes it easier for both you
and the jeweller. “If you’re not happy with what that particular jeweller has to offer, there are plenty more options
out there, and you could also have a look online,” says Jeremy.
What you C is what you get
Find out more about diamonds by speaking to a certified gemmologist, or search online. In doing so you will find
out exactly what determines the cost or value of the diamonds. More specifically ‘The Four C’s’: carat, clarity,
colour and cut.
Keeping these tips in mind will enable you to purchase the perfect engagement ring that will take her breath away
(and hopefully seal the deal!)
