From “Will You” to “I Do” with Diamond Engagement Rings

The first step to hearing those two magical little words, “I do,” begins is to ask the big question of “Will you?” But before that, there is the sometimes overwhelming matter of shopping for engagement rings. Don’t sweat it, though – these tips will help you choose a ring she simply won’t be able to refuse.

The Basics of Engagement Rings

The first thought is often to go for the biggest diamond solitaire that your budget will allow. It doesn’t take long, however, to figure out that when it comes to diamonds, the average budget doesn’t stretch quite as far as most people would like. That’s when it’s time to change your thinking about diamond engagement rings. Bigger isn’t always better, as they say, and a piece of diamond jewelry as a statement of love and intent should really have more thought put into the overall design than the mere size of the stone.

It’s important to remember that this is a ring she will be wearing every single day. With that in mind, a large diamond solitaire may prove to be impractical on a day to day basis, especially for very active women. Another factor to consider is the size and shape of your lady’s hands – again, a very large diamond may not be the best choice for appearances, either. A moderate center stone, however, surrounded by diamond accents, offers versatility of design in engagement rings, allowing for the most complimentary fit for both hand shape and lifestyle. The better a ring fits these two areas of consideration, the happier she will be with it overall.

Comparison Shopping Strategies

As you go off in search of diamond engagement rings, you’ll want to compare the offerings of several different retailers, both store front and online. The most important thing to remember as you go about comparison shopping is to be sure that you are looking beyond just price tags. Diamonds are rated on many factors other than size, such as color, clarity and cut. These latter three factors are what impacts a diamond’s shine and sparkle, and so should be considered equally – if not more so – than a diamond solitaire’s mere size. It is a diamond’s beauty, after all, that’s truly representative of the love you share; it’s uniqueness, it’s sparkle – not it’s mass.

The best engagement rings are those that are chosen with her specific tastes, and even personality, in mind. Give a little thought to her favorite things; her favorite colors…favorite designs. And then relax. You know her better than anyone, after all. You’ll choose a ring that she’ll love…especially since it came from you…and her exuberant “Yes!” will be the next step on the path toward, “I do.”
