Find Your Perfect Match

Choosing an engagement ring is a task not to be taken lightly. The gift of an engagement ring presented at the time of a marriage proposal signifies the intent to marry your true love for a lifetime. For that reason, the engagement ring is very special purchase. Before buying, however, you should consider several things.

One of the most important concerns is your budget. How much can you spend on this lasting treasure?

Next, do you know what your significant other likes? What cut, what color, what setting? You may want to play amateur detective and look at her other jewelry to get an idea of what she likes.

Diamonds come in many colors and styles with many settings. In order not to disappoint, do a little research first. Look at cuts and think about the size diamond you want. You should go into the purchase with a little understanding of the four C’s (Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat).

After budget concerns, focus more on the diamond’s cut rather that a certain carat weight. After you have the other C’s figured out, go with the largest carat that fits within your budget.

Along with the diamond choice, you may want to consider the metal used in the setting. Choices are platinum, white gold, yellow gold and rose gold. Again, you’ll want to choose a color that fits your partner.
