The decision to get married is an exciting one. There are generally lots of emotions and excitement surrounding a wedding. The first step will be to find the perfect engagement ring. With so many options to choose from, the happy process of finding a ring to signify a forever commitment can turn stressful. Thankfully, there are some ways to narrow down the choices and find the best engagement ring for your significant other. Below are some tips to take into consideration when shopping.

1. Determine Shape

The easiest way to narrow down the search options is to decide on a ring shape. Each cut (or shape) will be a different price point. Typically, diamonds that are shaped as marquis and pears are less expensive. If you have a bigger budget, you may choose to search for a round cut.

2. Choose Band Metal

The next step is to determine what type of metal you will want for the wedding ring band. Traditionally, wedding rings have bands made from white gold, yellow gold, platinum and silver. If you want to try something different, you can choose other metals such as titanium. It may be important to note that platinum and silver look practically identical, but platinum is much less affordable. It weighs more, but it can scratch easier. Think about your lifestyle before choosing a metal.

3. Have in Mind Carat Size

Most people think bigger is better when it comes to carat size in diamonds. However, before choosing a ring for your significant other, ask them if they prefer a larger stone or a smaller stone that has more clarity. If possible, have your fiancé try on rings. Most people have an idea of what they think they want until they start trying rings on. The ring you think you wanted may not look the best on your finger.

4. Get Measured

The ring measurements are extremely important. The engagement ring should fit snugly. It should not be too loose that your circulation gets cut off. Even worse, you don’t want an expensive engagement ring that is too loose and at risk of falling off and getting lost or broken.

5. Compare Ring with Wedding Band

Your engagement ring is not the only ring you will be wearing regularly. Your wedding band has the most significance for the wedding. It needs to pair well with the wedding band and be comfortable to wear daily. Some engagement rings do not allow for a flush pairing with a wedding band. If this is important to you, it needs to be considered when shopping for the engagement ring.

6. Buy Certified

An engagement ring is an expensive and important purchase. Be sure the stone you purchase comes from a laboratory that is accredited. Additionally, verify the diamond matches the certificate you receive.
