What You Need to Know Before Buying an Engagement Ring

You did it – you found the person you want to spend forever with. Now all that’s left to do is to find the perfect Ring.


Shopping for an Engagement Ring is a milestone in every relationship. A big task, finding the Ring your partner will love – and say “YES!” to – is a huge deal. Make the process easier by knowing these five things before buying an Engagement Ring:


Desired Style

The rule of every great relationship is to communicate – shopping for an Engagement Ring is no exception. Ask your partner what their dream Ring looks like before you start shopping. They’ll be appreciative that you care, and even more thankful when you pop the question and they genuinely love what you slip on their finger.


Level of Involvement

Decide with your significant other early on how involved they want to be in the Ring buying process. Figure out if they want to go browse styles with you, or if they want you to have the final choice.


Ring Size

While, yes, you can always adjust Ring size slightly after it is on their finger, one that is too big or too small takes the fun out of wearing it (and showing it off) immediately after the big moment.


Your Options

When shopping for that special Ring, be sure to do your research on all of the different options available. Explore everything from metal and stone types to different engraving and customization choices so that you know exactly what to look for before buying.


Did You Know?

Don’t just assume that your partner wants the standard diamond style. With over 12,000 people each month searching for personalized jewelry online, there’s a good chance your special someone is hoping for something a little more unique.


Proposal Timing

An Engagement Ring isn’t something you can search for, look at once, and then buy immediately. Engagement Ring shopping takes time and careful thought, so be sure to plan your proposal accordingly.


There is no right or wrong way to buy an Engagement Ring as long as both you and your partner love it. Whether you design a Ring together or you surprise them with a custom creation, the most important thing is to make sure your Ring represents the love you share.
