Things To Consider When Buying an Engagement Ring

Picking an engagement ring can be a difficult task. It is something that you don’t get much practice with and you just have to go with your gut feeling. However, there are a few things that you can bear in mind when picking an engagement ring. Here are the things that you need to consider when purchasing an engagement ring for your partner.

Understand The 4Cs

Understanding the four Cs is essential when you are picking an engagement ring for your partner. The four Cs are colour, cut, clarity and carat weight. Once you understand what the four Cs are, you can then consider what the most important C is. Are you more bothered about the clarity of the gemstone or are you more bothered about the weight? You won’t be wearing this ring yourself so you have to put yourself in your partner’s shoes.

Picking The Metal For The Ring

Picking the metal is something that you need to consider because not everybody likes every metal out there. Some people may prefer silver over gold and others would prefer platinum over silver.

Platinum is a stronger material so if your partner works in a physical job, this material would be much better. Another good way to pick the metal of the ring is by finding a colour that goes well with your gemstone. Platinum and silver are great for diamonds so they may be the metal that you choose for the wedding band. If you wish to wear gold with a diamond then we would suggest rose gold for this ring.

Choosing The Gemstone

Picking a gemstone for your partner’s engagement ring can be quite difficult however there are a few things that you can do to narrow it down. To start, what is their favourite colour that they like to wear? Is it red? If so then you can choose a diamond ruby ring for their engagement ring. If they prefer blue then choose a vintage sapphire engagement ring. The best way to pick a gemstone is the colour so go off that, unless you know what their favourite gemstone is already. 

Go Off a Budget

The best way to limit your options is to set yourself a budget. For example, if you are willing to spend £2000 on an engagement ring, consider going 10{1d286b2e0ba1bda86149085ceccac754d87ea0e35043a43528fd665bb04dcb37} either way. That way you are limiting the options to choose from, making it slightly easier for yourself.

Pick a Ring That Suits Her and Not You

Think about all of the things that they like and not what you like. At the end of the day, they are going to be wearing this ring until the big day. What is the common material that she wears? What is her favourite colour for jewellery? What is the common material that she usually wears or says that she likes? There are many things to consider so if you are ever stuck, ask one of her friends as they will be able to point you in the right direction.
