You’re finally going to pop the question! Congratulations!
You’ve already found that special someone you can’t wait to spend the rest of your life with. Now it’s time to find the perfect ring to serve as a symbol of your love.
Don’t know where to start?
We have a few tips on how to pick the perfect diamond engagement ring your spouse to be will cherish for a lifetime.
If you’re picking out a ring with your betrothed this aspect won’t be a problem. But if you’re planning on surprising the love of your life, this can be tricky.
If your significant-other already owns a few rings, you’re in luck. Borrow one you’ve seen them wear before, and a jeweller will be able to size it for you.
If you don’t want to risk taking their ring out of the house you can trace the inner circle onto a piece of paper. A jeweller will be able to get the right size from this just as easily.
Unfortunately, if your future spouse does not own any rings, you’re just going to have to guess.
And remember, if you’re unsure, lean toward a larger sized ring. Getting a ring resized is just like a haircut. You can always take some away but it’s a lot harder to add some on.
Now we get to the fun part of diamond engagement rings; the diamond.
When you’re buying a diamond, you’ll often hear people talk about the 4Cs. These are the cut, colour, clarity, and carat.
The cut of a diamond is often considered to be the most important of the 4Cs as it affects the diamonds sparkle.
If a diamond is cut too deep or too shallow the diamond will appear dull. A well-cut diamond will look nice and sparkly, no matter what the clarity might be.
The colour of a diamond is actually in reference to its lack of colour. The less colour, the higher quality.
Clarity covers any imperfections that may exist within the diamond. This is often considered the least important of the 4Cs.
Most imperfections cannot be seen with the naked eye, so you don’t have to worry about them.
People often mistake a diamond’s carat for its size. A diamond’s carat actually measures its weight.
Carat is not like the other 4Cs. Deciding on a carat is more about personal preference than diamond quality.
Style and Setting
Your spouse to be is going to be wearing this ring every single day for a lifetime. You want to make sure it fits their unique sense of style.
If they wear jewelry pay close attention to what styles and colours they favour on a day to day basis. If they don’t wear jewelry, watch what kind of clothing they wear.
If you want to propose to someone, there’s a good chance you know a lot about them. So don’t sweat picking the wrong style too much.
