How to Buy Your Engagement Ring Together As a Couple

There are many traditions and rules around proposals that are absolutely not mandatory and honestly, quite outdated to follow in the twenty-first century. They say, to buy the perfect engagement ring you need to spend at least three month’s salary – it's rather arbitrary don’t you think? Another tradition that’s quite popular is that it’s necessary that the man surprises his partner with an engagement ring that he has to pick himself with no input from his partner whatsoever!

Communication is the most important part of any relationship and buying an engagement ring that will be worn forever is a big deal! With discussion and clarity from your partner, buying an engagement ring can be way less stressful than it normally is. But before you jump into your car and drive off to your nearest jewelry store, take a moment to talk about your visions for the ring and the basic things to consider before buying an expensive engagement ring. Here is everything you need to know before you go on to buy the perfect engagement ring together as a couple!

Learn About All the Different Engagement Ring Styles
Gone are the days when you only had a couple types of metal and gemstones to choose from. Today you can choose from a wide variety of settings, sizes, colors and metals to create the perfect engagement ring of your dreams! Get to know the common settings and styles before diving into the world of engagement rings. If you like classic designs you might want to look for options in solitaire settings while rings with a halo setting are a great way to add extra bling to your classic diamond ring. If you like meaningful and thoughtful gestures, a three-stone engagement ring might interest you, or you could even go for a completely custom made ring!

Get Familiar With All the Shapes and the 4Cs
With all the varieties of shapes and cuts and designs, there is no way you won’t get caught in the chaos. If you learn about the shapes of diamonds beforehand you will have better clarity and choosing the perfect diamond for your ring will become way easier! First of all brush up on the 4Cs of a diamond – Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat. The balance between all the 4Cs is the key to creating the engagement ring that will look spectacular on you and also be a good value for the money you pay for it!

Openly Discuss Your Budget
We get it – This isn’t the most romantic, fairytale way to propose and get engaged, but it is definitely healthy, practical and the sensible thing to do. Make sure to discuss and set a budget for your engagement ring to avoid conflict about it later. With a budget you will have better clarity and judgment about the kind of ring you prefer.

Don’t Forget About the Important Documents
Whether you choose to buy your engagement ring from a local jewelry store or a reputable jewelry store online, either way, make sure to check for all the documents that should come with your very expensive piece of jewelry, namely the diamond certification. Check for their upgrade and return policies, insurance and make sure the stone is certified and ethically sourced.

We hope your progressive step towards buying an engagement ring only strengthens your bond as a couple!
