Engagement rings certainly aren’t all alike.
Some are straightforward with cheap stones displayed on narrow bands without much ornamentation. Others are complicated works of art that outshine many people’s wedding rings. How can you select the best one, one that will make your girlfriend screech with excitement — without having to worry that you’ve made the wrong call?
Here are some tips about engagement rings that you may want to take into consideration:
You have gemstone and metal decisions.
A tiny diamond set onto a gold band isn’t your only option anymore, and your fiance could be expecting more creativeness from you. You can make a choice from many alternative metals and stones. You also get to choose the cut, colour, lucidity and carat of the stone based on what you think looks best — and however much you can afford.
Birthstone engagement rings are becoming popular .
Birthstones are not traditionally linked with engagement rings, but including a woman’s birthstone in a ring has become a popular alternative or addition to the simple diamond engagement ring. Some designers are even including a stone to represent the month of the marriage in their rings.
You can’t get it wrong with gold.
While it’s no longer the sole choice, no lady will be disappointed with an elegant yellow gold band for her engagement ring, but platinum and white gold are worth considering as well. And while silver and titanium are less frequent choices, they can be perfect in some cases — especially if they complement your future wife’s skin tone or the stone you’ve selected.
Engravings are a nice touch.
If you’re purchasing a ring off the shelf instead of having it custom-made, having it engraved with a personal message is a good idea. Naturally, you may have custom rings engraved as well. You need to do absolutely everything possible to make your ring as unique as it is beautiful.
Custom designing a ring guarantees uniqueness.
When you choose a custom engagement ring instead of one out of a catalogue or from a showroom, you guarantee that your special lady is getting something no-one else has. You may also be sure that every aspect of the ring’s design is to your liking.
Consider what the wedding ring will look like.
In many cases, couples select an engagement ring that may complement the future wedding ring. That means either choosing from a set — and that requires involving your lady in the process since the woman is usually involved in selecting the wedding ring — or having the same custom maker create both the engagement ring and the wedding ring. That way, she or he can match the two pieces.
Ask for help from relatives and buddies .
If you don’t want to involve your fiance in the choice or design of her engagement ring, you still don’t have to go at it alone. A designer can be a great help in explaining trends to you, but your intended wife’s mother, father, sisters and mates are also useful sources of information. Just be sure they will keep your secret if the ring is supposed to be a surprise.
With some smart and careful choices and a little help from friends, family and pros, you can present your woman with an engagement ring that tops all other engagement rings — at least in her mind and heart.
