Set a budget
The right ring size
Quality of the diamond
The primary point is to establish a budget. This will make it easier for you while selecting rings for engagement and also the retailer as he will be focused on showing the best within your budget. Remember, there’s nothing romantic going into major debt, so buy the loveliest ring that you can afford. The rock is a symbol of your love, besides you can always buy her an expensive ring as an anniversary gift later down the line.
Most men screw up in this process, they get everything right except for the ring size. When the moment arrives and you’re down on one knee and the ring doesn’t fit, awkwardness ensues. The optimal way of getting the right size is to take a not-so old ring of your girlfriend and hand it over to the jeweler. It’s obvious that this act should be done secretively with her parents in the play.
Girls are choosy when it comes to jewelry and same goes with the ring. She may put on a grin while you propose but deep down she’s hating the rock. To avoid that, focus on the current jewelry she’s wearing, does it have a lot of gold or silver or she’s a platinum kind of woman. If you match the style of her jewelry to the ring, you will score extra romantic brownie points that will last a lifetime.
