The Ring’s The Thing! How To Find Your Perfect Engagement Ring
So you’ve found that perfect person and you’re pretty positive that you’re both ready to pop the question. Congratulations! Well, if that’s the case then there’s only one thing you really need to worry about: the ring. After all, if you’re going to be wearing the thing on your finger for the rest of your life, then you want it to be something that you actually like, right? Well, in order to help you find the perfect ring for you, here are a couple of things that you should consider before your partner gets down on one knee.
Let’s start with the most obvious and important thing. What is an engagement ring without a diamond? Well, there are probably a lot of people who have gotten engaged without a diamond ring but let’s be honest, it’s traditional for a reason! You might just think that a diamond is a diamond no matter what, but that’s far from the case. Diamonds come in all different colors and different cuts. If you can’t find a ring with a stone that you really love then you can buy loose diamonds and have them fitted specially to a band. That way you get something totally unique and well as utterly beautiful!
Most of the time people tend not to give much thought to the band itself with their engagement rings. Unlike a wedding ring, you’re often so distracted by how beautiful the stone is that you don’t really notice the band. However, there are plenty of things that you can do with it in order to make it just a little bit more interesting. Sure, you can go with something traditional if you want an elegant, refined look. Or perhaps you’d rather mix it up with a plaited band that adds a bit more visual interest. Remember to think about the stone at the same time when choosing a band. After all, a huge stone on a tiny band is going to look a little bit odd, whereas a thicker band is going to end up dwarfing a smaller stone. Also, make sure that you get it properly sized before anyone pops the question! The last thing you want is for the most romantic moment of your life to be ruined by the think getting stuck halfway onto your finger.
There a whole bunch of different of ways in which you can style your engagement ring beyond just thinking about the size of the diamond and the thickness of the band. Think about the cut of the diamond. Do you want it teardrop shaped, oval, or a more traditional circle? Do you want a single large stone or a group of smaller stones that go all the way across the length of the band? There are so many different options out there that just about anyone, no matter what your tastes are, can almost certainly find a ring that’s absolutely perfect and will have you saying yes for sure!
