Good Choices Of Rings From Engagement Ring Stores

Jun 14, 2008
Why engagement is so important to most of us? This is because a sign of commitment for both parties, at least for a start. You would love to spend the rest of your life together or in some cases, at least try to due to the deep love that you have for each other.

It is The Vein of Love

The tradition of wearing engagement rings was believed to come from the Romans. The third finger which is said to have a vein that leads to the heart hence it is called vena amoris (vein of love), that is why the ring is often worn on the left hand.

Go To The Right Store, You Get The Right Ring

The symbolism of the engagement ring is subjective because everyone has their own traditions and beliefs. However, they are sometimes too engrossedly in love that they have forgotten engagement rings are also some sort of investments which should be given serious thought before buying.

Mainly a guy, or a couple will just pop into any popular engagement ring stores without knowing the facts that choosing the right ring does not based on the prettiest design. Before going into an engagement ring stores and you as the guy should be prepared because there are a lot of things to take into account.

The Importance of Budget

Before going into any engagement ring stores make sure that you have set a budget, this is important whether you are shopping alone or with you fiance. Be careful sales people are sometimes really pushy. They may make you fell guilty if you go with the one that is not expensive enough for them or hint that the cost of the ring symbolizes how deep is your love. Don't get suck into all these. Stick to your budget

Do Your Research

Choosing for the right ring for your beloved is never easy. All this while you may have thought that "no problem, no sweat", but let me tell you it is not simple at all. The design which you are going to choose has to suit your beloved's taste whether it is traditional, understated, modern, or intricate? So do your homework first before you even go near any engagement ring stores, this is because in there you will be overwhelmed with a lot of precious metals as your ring's setting which you can either choose gold, titanium, rose gold, platinum, and white gold or a combination of precious metals.

What Will The Deal Breaker Be

Everyone knows that the deal breaker is always the stone. The most popular choice is of course the Diamond; after all it is a girl's best friend. Unfortunately, fake diamonds are existing in the market so you have to be careful. When going into an engagement ring stores, be armed with the knowledge that when you pick a diamond you have to know the "Four C's" Carat weight, Clarity, Cut, and Color.

So you have decided to get a diamond ring, but do you know that engagement ring stores always offer you diamonds that have already been preset? Why is it better to a setting and a diamond separately? This is because at times if not all the time you can examine closely a diamond better when it has not been set.

Surprising your girlfriend is romantic, but don't forget to take take a friend and make sure the two of you have read up on the fine points of choosing the right diamond. Of course it's better to have second opinion. I will suggest going to a good and reputable engagement ring stores though they can be a little pricey, you may be assured of the quality. However, don't forget to ask for ask for a certification on the originality of the ring.
