Are you ready to take that next step with your significant other? If yes, it’s time for ring shopping! Engagement rings are a huge expense, so you want to be able to do it right! Read our guide below and pick the best engagement ring for your significant other!
1. Pick a Style You Like
Engagement rings range from minimalist to extravagant. Try to narrow down the ring style that your significant other loves. Make sure to think about the thickness of the ring band, the gemstone setting and even the possibilities of engraving words on the rings (if you want them)!
2. Choose Material for the Ring Band
Rings range from gold to silver, and even sterling silver or silicone. If you and your significant other have not worn jewelry before this, it’s best to keep in mind that metal allergies exist! Thus, make sure you choose the right material for the engagement ring band as the both of you will wear it for a long time.
3. Pick Your Dream Gemstone(s)
Not a fan of traditional diamond rings? Well, no one said you must have a diamond for it to be an engagement ring! You can have your favorite gemstone on the ring band around your finger to represent the love you have for each other.
4. Get Your Ring Size Measured
Nothing feels worse than getting a ring that does not fit, especially if it is an engagement ring for a proposal! So, make sure your ring measurements are accurate! Check out our guide to get an accurate ring size at home: How to Measure Ring Size for Flawless Fit
Want the engagement ring to be a surprise, but don’t know your significant other’s ring size? Psst, you can ask their friends to ask for you!
Remember, you don’t have to spend a specific amount on an engagement ring. All that is important is that your significant other loves it and says yes!
