So, you have met the perfect partner and are ready to start planning your lives together. Getting engaged is an exciting and sometimes scary time, and so is finding the perfect engagement ring. You will be wearing this ring every day for the rest of your life, so you want to make sure you love it. With so many different choices, where is a girl supposed to start?
Consider looking for timeless designs. You should totally look at the latest trends to get ideas for your ring, but keep in mind this is a ring you will be wearing forever. What is in style today might look dated in 20 or 30 years, so be careful buying into those super trendy styles. With that being said, if you love a style, then rock it!
Think about how it will wear day to day. Don’t get caught up in the idea of your engagement ring as a status symbol, bigger isn’t always better. Instead, consider how it will wear while you are doing everyday things like getting dressed, washing dishes and typing. For example, a several carat diamond ring might look stunning in the display case, and even on your hand, but if it gets caught every time you pull on a sweater, you won’t want to wear it. Try running fabric over the ring to make sure the setting won’t constantly get caught. Also, higher set stones can get in the way and are more likely to get knocked out of their setting and lost.
There is no hard and set rule that says you have to have a diamond ring, or a single stone, or even a full wedding set with a band. This is YOUR ring, so make it unique and personal to your style. Consider incorporating a family heirloom, a birth stone or other gem stone that you love. With the help of a professional jeweler or designer, anything is possible.
It is easy to get caught up in the excitement of shopping for the perfect ring or to get pressured by a pushy salesperson. Savor the excitement of this special moment and find a ring that truly speaks to you and represents your love and your future together. Remember, trends come and go, but your engagement ring will be with you forever. Take your time and enjoy the process of finding the perfect ring to represent you and your partner’s commitment.
