1. Discover her preferences
It’s always a great idea to check your loved one’s jewellery collection to gauge her style and preferences before starting your search for the perfect ring. For example, does she wear predominantly gold or silver jewellery? Does she prefer colourful and grand pieces or simple, elegant and understated? Deciding on these few factors according to her personal tastes will narrow down your search.
2. Check her ring size
This is possibly the most important factor: you don’t want to waste all that money on a ring if it doesn’t fit! Of course, you can get a ring re-sized, but that’s not the point. At such a crucial moment of getting down on one knee to propose, you want everything to be perfect. So, have a beautiful ring that fits snuggly on her finger as she says ‘yes!’
3. Look through all brands
There are many brands that are always the go-to for exquisite rings, such as Tiffany&Co, although these come at a price. The little green Tiffany box is something that every girl delights in seeing, that’s a fact. However, if you shop around a bit, there’s a good chance you’ll find a dazzling, high quality ring from a smaller brand that is just as beautiful but more affordable. The other benefit of going to more unknown brands is that the ring will be more unique!
4. Consider alternative stones & shapes
Indian engagements and weddings are known worldwide for their colour and extravagance, so why does it have to be different with the ring? An engagement ring doesn’t have to stop at the band and a diamond: there are many other precious stones and diamond shapes that can be incorporated. This will come down to you and your loved one’s personal style and favourite colours or birthstones.
