Hopefully, you have saved up enough bucks to purchase the “wow” ring. You know, the words she will say once she opens that engagement ring box. Usually websites will give you bits and pieces of information about engagement rings, which ones are the best, and all the usual jargon. But what you really want to know is how to choose an engagement ring that will make that special moment memorable .
Here are a few tips about how to choose an engagement ring in New Jersey, or anywhere else:
1. Check your budget, you want the best for less. However, if you want to spend a bit more go for the best. Be realistic but not cheap.
2. Do you know your lady’s ring size? If not, sneak one of her rings and have it measured. Take your cell phone and take a few snapshots of what she likes. You can’t go wrong.
3. Ask her good friends. You know how women love to talk, if they can’t lead you to a drop-dead gorgeous engagement ring for your girlfriend, who can?
4. Keep yourself in mind, in fact, be a bit selfish. Remember, whatever you buy for her you will probably end up wearing as well. If you purchase a cheap yellow diamond, you will have to stare at one your finger as well.
5. You can check the Internet for advice from gemstone experts; however, after you have your work cut out for you. Avoid diamonds with color grades below H; too yellow, or cut grade below “very good,” not enough luster. Actually, selecting a clear color and supreme cut over additional carats is a sure winner. However, if she is expecting something similar to the Hope Diamond, you have your work cut out for you.
6. Think beyond the box. Emeralds, black diamonds, and sapphires are great choices as accent or center stones.
