5 Things To Check Off Before Buying Their Engagement Ring

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

So, you are sure you want to spend the rest of your life with your guy, and you’ve already been dropping every possible hint you can, but he just doesn’t seem any closer to popping that important question, does he? Don’t get upset. Buying the engagement ring is arguably one of the most intimidating, scary, and expensive things he will ever do in his life. 
But, before he buys the ring and presents it to you, he has to get through a major checklist. So, if your guy seems to be putting off proposing, just know that he may well be making his way through the items we will discuss below. And, if that doesn’t bring you even a little bit of peace, why not share the list with him as a not-so-subtle reminder that if he loves it, he ought to put a ring on it?
If you’re a guy getting ready to propose, make sure you carefully work through the list below before you take the leap.
  • Learning the Language
Okay, nobody expects you to become a diamond expert just to pick out the perfect ring for your lucky lady, but you are going to have several new words you will need to learn if you want to make the right choice. At the very least, you will need to understand the four C’s – carat, cut, colour, and clarity – before you even have an idea of what you are looking at. Do your homework, but rest assured a reputable jeweller will be able to walk you through your new vocabulary.
  • Set a Budget
The next step is to figure out roughly how much you want to spend on the ring and how to slash that final cost without sacrificing integrity, and then start saving up that amount to spend on a ring. 
  • Her Style and Size
Even if you have not yet saved up enough money to get your custom made engagement rings at Certified Diamond Network, you still need to learn about what kind of style your partner wants and her ring size, too. Many a man about to propose has been known to steal another ring that she often wears, use their own finger, or even press another ring into a bar of soap to take to a jeweller to figure out her size. While none of these sneaky plans are completely watertight, and they are all sure to get the nerves up, they can help with getting her size relatively right. Don’t forget that choosing the perfect style is also going to take some planning.
  • Shop Around for Options
Once everything starts to come together, there is still some planning to do. You should check out different kinds of rings and diamonds, shop around for prices, and carefully check a store’s return policies and insurance policies. It may not sound romantic, but it a practical necessity.
  • Seek Permission
There seem to be different schools of thought when it comes to whether or not to ask her father’s permission to marry the woman of your dreams, but if she is traditional, she is sure to appreciate it. Getting up the courage to ask and then working out a plan to do it without her knowing also takes some planning. And it all must happen before shopping for the ring!

Remember those 5 things and you’ll be well-prepared when shopping for an engagement ring.
