Tips When Buying an Engagement Ring
Buying a ring is not only stressful but also a complicated process to go through especially for those who tend to overthink. However, that shouldn’t be the case for you. Because when you go out hunting for the perfect ring, you may bring these tips with you. They will keep you focused and less stressed out.
Forget About Trends
A passing trend or fad, whimsical and romantic motifs, such as hearts, bows, flowers and even snakes should not be the basis of what engagement ring you purchase. Since it will be the symbol of your love that will stand the test of time, it should be timeless. Instead of going for something popular, look for a ring that would suit the style of your significant other. Choosing from her style will make the ring more precious in her eyes.
Have an Outside Eye
As mentioned before, this can be quite a daunting task, so seeking the help of someone close to you can make the entire process more fun. Ring up someone who knows you and your bride-to-be, and whose taste and opinion you respect. Then go look around with them. But if you’re the loner type who likes to shop alone, then you could at least ask for some tips from your friends who have experience with engagements. A second or third opinion may be more valuable than you think.
Cost Does Not Add Sentiment
Did you know the real reason why people spend so much money on engagement rings? That’s because during The Great Depression, the advertising geniuses of De Beers started running an ad pushing men to spend an entire month’s worth salary on a ring if he wanted to be "responsible." By the 80s, it jumped up to two months’ worth! These days however, you should be spending at least three months’ salary when purchasing this piece of forever jewelry. It’s just one big marketing strategy – so don’t overspend.
Work Directly With a Jeweler
Custom rings make you feel more special compared to going to a store and picking out something. Today, a lot of people are ditching diamonds altogether. Rather, they lean towards quality and design.
