Know what you want to spend. The engagement ring buying process presents a dizzying array of choices.
Have a price range in mind. Going in with fairly specific parameters will help you find the right engagement ring to fit your budget.
What kind of jewelry she prefer?
Is she more classic or modern? Feminine or sophisticated?
Does she wear more white or gold? Simple or ornate? Have these preferences in mind when you are considering buying an engagement ring. If you buy something similar to what she already likes, you can’t go wrong.
Know her ring size.
It’s the starting point for buying an engagement ring.
If she wears rings, borrow one she already owns and check the size.
If she doesn’t wear rings, estimate in the following manner: The average ring size in the US is 6 (based on the ‘average’ US female being 5’4″ tall and weighing 140 lbs.) If she’s more slender, or fine boned, her ring size is probably in the 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 range.
If she is heavier, larger boned or taller, her ring size is probably in the 6 1/2 to 7 1/2 range. It’s always better to buy a ring a bit bigger than you think she’ll need, because sizing a ring down is much easier than increasing its size.
Know what diamond shape suits her best.
If she hasn’t made it easy for you by already voicing an opinion on the subject (or admiring someone else’s engagement ring), here are a few things to keep in mind when considering shape during the engagement ring buying process:
She will be wearing this ring 24/7 every day of your married life. It will need to go with everything from jeans to evening wear. If you’re uncertain about her shape preference, it’s sensible to stick to the classics. They became classics because they appeal to most people most of the time.
Cutting styles with fewer facets, such as emerald cut or rose cut, require higher clarity.
Certain shapes pair more successfully with other gems in multi-stone rings. Round, Oval and Marquise all work well. Pear and Heart shape are more challenging.
If she prefers clean, modern lines in furniture, for example, it’s likely she’ll react well to the same aesthetic in Rectangular or Square shapes, like the Emerald Cut or Princess Cut. If she tends towards the traditional, a round shape rarely misses. More bohemian types tend to favor more unusual shapes, like Trilliant or Marquise.
