Now, obviously, as women we can’t very well choose our own engagement rings. Well, we could, but that would take the fun and spontaneity out of a proposal. However, we can do our best to make sure our partner makes the perfect choice for us. Dropping not so subtle hints and leaving magazines bookmarked is always a good place to start.
It doesn’t help to go browsing either so he can get an indicator of your size and what you like. There is a lot involved when it comes to choosing the perfect engagement ring. And there’s plenty you’re going to have to consider. Use these suggestions to narrow it down and close in on what might be the perfect ring for you.
One of the first considerations with wedding and engagement rings is the size. You need to know the kind of size that perfectly fits your fingers. You might already know this, and you can drop hints about it. It’s important that your guy gets the size right so the ring will fit you immediately. However, it’s not the end of the world if it doesn’t fit. Rings can always be readjusted, and many ranges are available in an array of different sizes. So try not to worry too much about this, but it’s always helpful to try to get the size right.
The style is another big consideration that will need to be made. And this really comes down to personal taste. The good thing about this is that, if you’ve been together long enough, he should have a good idea of what you like. This is something that your partner will develop knowledge of over the course of the relationship. You may even be the sort of couple who discuss the details of engagement plans. If that’s the case you can indicate the taste and style of ring that most appeals to you.
Something that’s always important for rings is that they have character. It’s great to own something that has personality and a great story attached. The story of engagement rings is part of what makes them so special. It could be a family heirloom, or you might want to consider buying from jewellers with a rich history. Consider the character and story of a ring before you select it. This will make the process much more exciting, and will increase your love of the ring you choose.
Another important consideration when choosing the perfect ring is the budget. You need to realise that the engagement ring is just one in a long list of expenses. The wedding ring will also cost money, as will the wedding. So make sure you have a realistic budget for the engagement ring. It might be worth talking this through with your partner and making sure you set the right kind of budget.
Planning a wedding starts with choosing the perfect engagement ring. And you can help make this happen by considering the points on this list. Use them to help your partner choose the perfect ring for you.
