Shopping for an engagement ring doesn’t have to be a dreaded experience. With the right amount of knowledge about what to look for in a ring, coupled with your excitement about asking the girl of your dreams to marry you, this can be an enjoyable exercise matching your newly discovered ring expertise with the money you’ve got available to spend. In this blog, you’ll learn the most important things to consider when choosing an engagement ring for your beloved.
Choose the Right Setting
The right setting is a big part of an engagement ring purchase. Whether it has diamonds or is a solitaire settings, which is only metal, it is important to know her style and what she will be comfortable wearing forever. Ask a friend, her family or just browse around with her. Sometimes, she will even find something on the web to give you a hint and a good start at finding the perfect setting.
Choose the Right Diamond or Gemstone
Does she want a diamond or gemstone? Does size matter? What shape? Believe or not, in today’s world, it is much easier to follow the 4 C’s and work with your jeweler to get the best diamond or gemstone at the best price. The 4 C’s include Cut (shape), Color, Clarity and Carat. Read more about the 4 C’s in our blog Diamonds for Dummies.
Choose the Right Size
Find out that ring size. You definetly do not want the ring to get stuck at the nuckle when proposing. Have her try on a friends ring or get a sample ring sizer from your jeweler. Our stock size is 6 1/2, so if you know it’s smaller than that, you are ok cause we can always put a guard and size later. If bigger than that, you want to know.
Choose a Jeweler You Can Trust
Where can you find a jeweler you can trust? Read reviews, chat with friends or just visit your friendly neighborhood family jeweler. Oh wait, Casale Jewelers is Staten Island retail jeweler with all positive reviews along with an Engagement VIP program that will make you feel comfortable and confident with your engagement ring purchase.
Have a Budget
Everyone has a budget. Know your budget. Know what you are comfortable with and what is reasonable. If your girlfriend wants a 2ct diamond and you have $2500 to spend, the quality of that diamond will not be the best. Find the happy medium between size and quality.
This is the hardest part, for us anyway. From this point, our job is done. This is the biggest part as everyone asked how it happened. What I suggest is to refer to our blog on the Best Proposal Ideas. This will give you some ideas that you can use and make your own.
We hope you enjoyed this as much as we did. We also hope it was helpful. An Engagement Ring purchase is something personal and we believe it is the start of a long term relationship, not only between you and your fiance, but between you and a jeweler you can trust. Not a website you can trust 🙂
