4 Things To Keep In Mind When Buying An Engagement Ring
Finding the love of your life isn’t the same as finding an engagement ring to place on her finger. And yet it’s similar.
Unlike other expensive purchases, buying a diamond engagement ring is somewhat an emotional investment. However, that solely depends on person to person as many invest in an engagement ring with the idea of trading the diamond for a better, bigger and shinier one.
If you’re planning on getting down on one knee any time soon, read these top engagement buying tips before heading to the jewelry store.
Have You Thought About Your Budget?
This is the first consideration that people should factor in when buying a diamond engagement ring. Figure the amount you can afford to spend on this investment. Decide what will be better: picking a loose diamond first then a ring design or a readily outfitted engagement ring?
Visit online jewelry stores like Solitaire Jewelers. Get as much information about how different carats of diamonds typically cost, what are the factors that determine its price, and so on. An excellent information resource is the GIA’s website.
Does The Chosen Diamond Have Certification?
One carat diamonds (and larger) should ideally come with a gem report. A gem report is an experienced and professional gemologist’s analysis of the stone’s quality by its:
- Color grade
- Carat weight
There are many authentic and professional gem reports issued by several laboratories, the most popular and credible are issued by The Gemological Institute of America, American Gem Society and European Gemological laboratories USA. All loose diamonds available from Solitaire Jewelers are GIA certified.
Do You Know Your Metals?
The diamond set in the engagement ring isn’t the only thing increasing overall value. The metal of the ring also plays an important part.
The most popular choices for metals in engagement and wedding rings are gold and platinum. White gold is another popular option.
Due to its rare, dense and pure nature, rings made from platinum metal are going to be more expensive. Compared to gold, a platinum ring will be far more durable and low maintenance. Some people choose between white gold and platinum due to the color of the metal as well.
What Diamond Setting Are You Looking For?
The right setting can make a very big difference when it comes to price and aesthetic value of your diamond ring. A ring’s setting is basically how the stone or gem is connected to the band. There are many types of ring setting. It will do you good to know them all.
When looking for THE ring, think about the ring as a whole. The right setting can change the entire look of the set diamond or diamonds. Knowing what look and design style you and your fiancé-to-be would like is important when it comes to finding an attractive ring.
Buying an engagement ring involves emotions. You may be inclined to buy the best ring for your fiancé-to-be which is understandable. Choose an online jewelry store that offers a range of diamond rings, with stunning designs, all under the same roof.
