Bachelors’ Quick Guide To Choosing The Perfect Ring

August 11, 2016


The time has come to buy that perfect ring for your special someone, and with so much choice on the market, men who are not experienced shoppers might find it mind-blowing. Luckily, our quick guide can help research and select a piece of jewelry so timeless that any girl would love to show it off on her finger.

First of all, determine the budget. Buying an engagement ring is something that is hopefully done once in a lifetime and it should be treated as such.

This isn’t to say that a perfect ring has to cost a fortune, but it does mean that it isn’t the type of jewelry that is purchased every day.

Once the budget is in place, decide on the style that would best suit the one destined to wear your ring.

Getting some ideas from her friends is always good, but so is not giving away your intentions, so if you want to keep it a total secret glance at her friends’ rings to get an idea of what they’ve got. Chances are, your girlfriend will like a similar type of bling.

Keeping in mind that a platinum diamond ring is the most sought-after kind of ring nowadays, you basically can’t go wrong with it. Deciding on the cut of the diamond is another story, and if you don’t have much experience in purchasing rings, sales people at any jewelry store can help you narrow down your search based on your budget.

Quick tip: get the best diamond clarity that you can afford. You won’t regret it because the better the clarity the higher the value of the stone, and diamonds are a great investment because their prices are always on the rise.

Lastly, don’t forget to prepare a proposal that matches both of your personalities. Her friends will be asking her about the proposal, and she better have a good story to tell, in addition to having a beautiful ring to flash!
