Aug 17, 2007
Historically circle symbolized all things that can be attributable to wellness, joy and respect. Unconfirmed stories tell, caveman used rings to formalize his love, Hebrews did so in biblical times and Christians adopted the culture in the 8-9 century.

Whatever it may be, but engagement rings are more than that what they used to be even a century odd yeas ago. It has more or less become mandatory to formalize engagements with the groom presenting the engagement ring to the bride at the engagement party usually hosted by the brides' parents.

Buying Engagement Rings Is Unique Experience
If you thought it was enough to know buying diamonds by the famous 4Cs, you must change your belief. Engagement rings call for more passionate approach towards buying them as it is the formal expression of sealing of your love.

The engagement rings you buy must be loved by your brides so what pleases them are the shape and settings of diamonds on top of several other things. But how do you know what pleases your loves? The recent trend has been to do a kind of a spying in order to collect more information about her likings so that it surprises her pleasantly. Know the shape and setting type she may like perhaps from her friends, what base (pave shank) pleases her, gold, platinum or silver etc.

Round is the most loved and sold shape for engagement rings and in general, all rings. There are 9 famous shapes for example, pear, emerald, oval, asscher etc. While selecting the shape you need to pay importance to the setting possibility too. Not all shapes suit all setting patterns. This is to say that what round shape suits most peat shape may not.

Plan Engagement Rings in Much Advance
Planning at least 4-6 weeks ahead for engagement rings is important as it takes as much time for them to make it once ordered. This could vary if you have ordered special designs or some inscriptions etc. Don't forget to tell them about inscriptions in advance. But keep in mind; this is in addition to the time you take for collecting the preferred style and likings of your fiance.

Buying Engagement Rings Safely
It is safer to buy from family or friend recommended jewelers. In other cases, it is alright to purchase from GIA (Gemological Institute of America) affiliated jewelers too. All diamonds, no matter you purchased them loose or set on the rings are given certificates by the GIA which details the quality of diamonds and microscopic signature of the seller. Among other things that affect the price is the designer who designed it and the showroom etc. Remember to keep the invoice safe with you. After all you don't want the wedding joy to be short lived.
