Engagement Ring Tips for First Time Buyers

By: Ariel

The best way to get her the perfect diamond engagement ring is to let her pick it out. She knows exactly what she wants and she might even be willing to cut the budget a little when she actually sees the price tags. It's not like she is picking out a computer and can choose the components from a catalogue, she has to try on the ring and several rings before she can decide which one is the right one. There are many types of metals, ring designs and diamond cuts to choose from. But, if you still want to choose a ring alone here are some helpful hints.

Engagement Ring Tip #1 - Check her out

Pay attention to her and notice what she likes. When choosing and engagement ring make sure you get something that matches what she likes.

What type of metal jewelry and rings does she wear now? Most women have a clear-cut preference. If she loves yellow gold, don't even look at a diamond or other stone mounted in a platinum or white gold setting.
What jewelry style does she wear now? Is it modern-looking, with bold styling? Does she prefer vintage style engagement rings? Or would you say that the jewelry she wears is classic, resembling those timeless pieces that never go out of style?
The best hint about her tastes is the jewelry she wears all the time, not items she only wears occasionally, because it's the jewelry that she wears everyday that she is most comfortable with.

Engagement Ring Hint #2 - Has she dropped any hints?
Women have mastered the sweet science of subtlety (sometimes), but especially when they want something. Has she ever mentioned her favorite jewelry styles or pointed out engagement rings when you're shopping together? If not, take her shopping. It isn't difficult to steer yourselves towards the jewelry stores. If you want to be subtle, say you're looking for a new watch, but be sure to pause at the engagement ring counters.

Maybe she has a friend who recently became engaged. Does she like her friend's engagement ring? Why or why not?
Does she like diamonds? Some women don't. Sapphires and rubies are both durable gemstones that are often set into engagement rings for women who don't like to wear diamonds. For more information, or see the web's best selection of engagement rings check out www.diamondsafe.com
