5 Things To Remember When Getting Your Engagement Ring
Congratulations! if you are reading this blog then you are probably thinking of getting engaged soon! this is a very exciting time in your life and you should try to enjoy it rather than getting stressed out. Unfortunately, we hear a lot of horror stories from couples that come to us and tell us about the bad experiences they had when going to retail stores to get their engagement rings. We are here to change that trend and show you that getting that one of a kind ring can be a fun & easy process. There is a lot to learn and we are here to guide you and teach you everything you need to know, while giving you our expertise on diamonds.
Top things to know when looking for your engagement ring
#1 Figure out your budget
You need to have a clear picture of what you want for your one-of-a-kind diamond ring. That all starts with figuring out what is the absolute top budget for your ring. It is easy to say 'give me the best ring that you have' but in reality, there is no absolute best, there is best for what you can afford. Depending on what is more important to you, the diamond color, clarity, cut, or carat size (don't worry, we explain to you the difference between all these terms). Some ladies would rather have a bigger diamond and they will not really care if the color is lower; luckily, we are a women owned business & we give you an honest opinion on the right decision for your situation.
#2 Do you want a diamond or a gemstone?
Today's bridal engagement rings trends have changed a lot. There are many alternative bridal engagement rings and you do not have to purchase a diamond. Some ladies like their center stone to be a sapphire, morganite, or any type of gemstone. Don't worry, although we specialize in diamonds (we come from the diamond wholesale world) we also specialize in gemstones, and we have endless options for you if you would like to see them. Gemstones are great for couples that have a lower budget, but still want a unique engagement ring
#3 are you going to look at rings as a couple, or are you going solo?
This is an important question because a lot of ladies get engaged but are sad because it is not the ring they want... we like to avoid this situation and that is why there are three ways to do that. First option, if you are open about talking to each other about getting engaged, great, you can come together as a couple, look at ring & then we can take it from here and talk to Mr. boyfriend so he can still surprise you at the proposal (we will keep in touch via texts and phone calls but that way we know exactly what you like and we have your finger size!). Another option is for you to come alone; if you are Mr. boyfriend, don't worry, if you have no idea what she wants you can get her a solitaire ring & once you are engaged you can come back and design the ring of her dreams (we give you a full store credit for the ring setting). We want your bride to LOVE her ring and that is why we do this option for you. Option 3, if you are Ms. girlfriend, you can come to us, tell us exactly what you like, and we will take it from here. Mr. boyfriend will come to us when he is ready and that way we will be able to tell him exactly what you want! so many ladies do this and it really helps them out. You get the ring of your dreams but you still get surprised!
