Set a Budget

Keep in mind the amount you are willing to spend on that perfect ring. Of course, everyone wants to get the priciest but it’s completely fine to look for something that’s pocket-friendly. True love can’t be measured by your financial potential to pay for a ring so forget that the diamond engagement ring should be equal to your 2 or 3 months’ salary and find something that’s not too heavy

on your pocket. That is not to say you cannot spend a good amount on it. Know the value of a good ring and pay the price accordingly. Know the difference between an overpriced and a valuable ring.

Spend Time on Search

She will keep it close to her heart, she will consider it special, and the value will increase automatically if only you do some real research to find that exact one ring for your special one. Even you will value it more because you have been involved in selecting the ring from the start.

Diamond Quality

First, you will have to find a balance between budget and quality and then narrow down your choices. In order to get the best quality, the diamond should be judged by its cut, color, clarity, and carat weight.

  • Diamond cuts are graded as Ideal, Premium, Very Good, Good, Fair, and Poor. Don’t go for anything less than Very Good.
  • Though white and colorless diamonds are more popular, you can always think outside the box and surprise her. There are no restrictions.
  • As for clarity, trust your eyes and check the diamond thoroughly to ensure there are no flaws. It should be crystal clear, depicting the purity of your love.
  • Carat weight is usually determined by the amount of money you are willing to pay. 24 carat is optimum, keeping both the quality and price in mind.

Think Long-Term

Try to bring the essence of timelessness in whatever you select. Before purchasing, look for something you can wear for a long time, let’s say the next few years at least. Don’t go after timely trendy rings. Maintain your class and pick a ring that shows you want her for eternity. Also, keep a check on her all-time preferred style.

Get the Right Size

Don’t play guessing games. It’s a bad idea to purchase the ring without knowing the exact size. Find ways to secretly figure it out and if nothing works, you can steal one of her rings for showing to your jeweler so he can replicate the size. If it doesn’t fit on her finger perfectly, no matter what you buy it will lack that special something all diamond engagement rings should have.
