If You're Shopping for an Engagement Ring, Don't Make These Mistakes

If you are trying to buy an engagement ring for your fiancé by yourself, we understand it can be difficult. Getting the perfect engagement ring and planning the perfect proposal are a nerve wracking experience. And if you're someone who doesn't know much about jewelry, then the whole process can get confusing and difficult. But don’t worry! We are here to help. These are some common mistakes that men usually make while buying an engagement ring, without help.

Not Considering Her Style
Surprising your partner with the engagement ring may seem like a very romantic thing to do and some partners may prefer it. But we always suggest having a fair idea of her personal style before buying the ring as she will the wearing the ring for a long time.

So, how do you know her style without giving away the surprise? Think about her personal style – does she like to try colors and patterns or does she stick to a classic wardrobe? Her other jewelry can give you a hint. Does she have a lot of vintage, detailed jewelry or does she only have a few pieces that are classic?

If that doesn't help you narrow down on a ring, her social media can give you a big clue to her style. We suggest Pinterest - she may already have a jewelry board. If all else fails, ask her family and friends. Once you know her style, choosing the right engagement ring always become easier.

Not Researching Diamonds At All
Would you buy a car or a TV without any research? So, a diamond ring isn't any different. Walking into a jewelry store without any knowledge about diamonds whatsoever is one of the worst things you can do. Before you even look at diamonds, read up about diamond 4Cs, i.e. Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat.

This isn't as difficult as you think it is. There is so much information available online. If you don't like to read, you will find video tutorials online. An informed decision is the best way to go about buying your engagement ring.

Not Setting a Budget
You have to have a budget. We're not talking about those clichéd guideline that says that you need to spend at least three months’ salary to buy the perfect engagement ring. Engagement rings are available in a wide spectrum of prices - anything from $2000 to $20,000. So, have a budget in mind when you start browsing for rings. Also know that beautiful engagement rings can be found in all budgets - it's a matter of balancing the 4Cs.

Once you're ready with all three, explore to find the ring of her dreams.
