These moments are really special to all couples, not only on this one day but for their entire lifetime. Being a symbol of their bond of togetherness, its purchase is indeed a tricky and significant job in hand before the D-day. Wedding ring is also a big investment so your overall experience is something which is necessary before you go and buy this ring. Follow these basic steps, and you’re sure to find the perfect engagement ring.
1. Plan your budget
Budget plays a significant role when it comes to this precious jewelry. Before you go to the shop, remember to plan and set your budget accordingly. Never ever cross your limits when it comes to purchasing the ring for your special one. Some people often get confused when they see shopkeeper people showing them rings of very high range and buy the one which is out of their budget. So the bottom line is to know your personal budget.
2. Choose the metal
With jewelry so special, each person has a dream choice of metal. While someone may prefer yellow gold, someone else may prefer white gold or platinum. So do not miss out clarifying this with your partner. It is also always better to discuss this out with your partner and know the metal they want. The most classical and famous shape is round solitaire and is chosen by many people is considered as ring of God. If you think, you are slightly low in your budget then you may look for some slightly lower clarity diamond but with very high color and cut.
3. Choose the jeweler carefully
Once you have selected the metal and budget, consult your peers and close ones about a dependable and trustworthy jeweler. Our parents usually have a great knowledge about all these things so better you ask your mom about the quality and price of the ring. The jeweler can also give you a right kind of advice. So, be very careful when deciding whom to depend on for this. Also, check out the options, before drawing down on one.
4. Take someone along for purchasing
Once you are decided about the shop, take your best friend along with you when you go to buy the ring. It is always nice to get a second opinion when taking such important decisions.
Though it may disappoint you with respect to the surprise factor at the wedding, it may prevent disappointment of your partner also. Your fiancee’s choice can be taken into consideration while buying the ring, so as to avoid their disappointment on the D-day.
The most important point to keep in mind is KISS (Keep It Sweet and Simple). Always remember before deciding on the design or the ring as a whole that it is to be worn all through your life and every day. So, heavy stuff may be difficult for daily wear but ultimately this all depends upon the choice of your fiancee so the last wish should be her’s.
6. Choose the stone
If you are getting the ring manufactured for the D-day, plan which stone you and your partner would like to be there on the ring. Diamond, coral, ruby or whatsoever the stone may be, be very sure before finalizing it. You should also make sure that you look at the stone with a jeweler’s which generally have magnifying glass as it helps you to determine the flows in the ring or metal.
7. Setting of the stone
After choosing the stone, check and decide what kind of setting you would like for it. From simple solitaire setting to yellow gold or titanium or platinum, you have a wide range to choose from.
8. Weight is important
Do not go overboard with the weight of the ring as one has to wear this ring all through the years and not on occasions. Hence, remember to keep the ring as light as possible as it will be easy to wear.
There is one more thing you should consider is that weight increase with metal so ultimately the price will go up, if you think you don’t want to invest more, you can simply invest on lighter one with sharp cuts.
9. Plan ahead
Some people think buying a wedding ring is merely a task and can be done within a very short time but I tell you, this is the most confusing and time consuming task so not keep buying the ring for the last minute, as it takes more than a day to choose the most appropriate ring for your partner. Plan ahead so that you get the best option for your partner.
10. Get it in writing
As a proof of authenticity, one should make sure they get a certificate in writing from the jeweler or the manufacturer or any other authority, as applicable.
Now, you are all equipped to get buying this special piece of jewelry.
