Engagement Ring Shopping Tips for Him

Engagement rings are a tradition that goes back centuries and one that holds super duper importance even today. The would be bride definitely awaits for a beautiful and thoughtful ring from her special man, and it is definitely going to be a piece of jewellery she will flaunt to friends, family and her social media peeps. If you think the pressure is on, it probably is! But there is no reason to get totally stressed out before purchasing a gorgeous ring for your sweetheart.

Once you figure out what your budget is, it is time to start looking for that perfect ring just for her. A ring that symbolises your love, affection and the commitment you are making to each other for a sweet happily ever after.

So let's take a look at a few steps that will make shopping for an engagement ring a little bit easier

Brush up on the basics of diamonds – When in doubt it might be best to go with diamonds! Unless budget prohibits, most women love a gleaming rock on their finger, whatever the size may be. When shopping for diamond rings, it would be a good idea to do a quick study of what it entails and the 4 basic tenets, namely the cut, carat weight, colour and clarity of a diamond. The cut and shape of the stone will basically depend on personal preference; the carat weight of the diamond as well as its size will depend on your budget. You will also find colour and clarity grades that will affect the look and cost of the stone in question.

Consider your shopping options – Now whether you are looking to buy diamonds in New York or New Delhi you don't have to get stressed out about wear to shop. If the thought of going from store to store makes you break out in a cold sweat you can simply turn to the wondrous online world and find a variety of well known diamond and diamond jewellery retailers that will deliver the prized ring right to your door step. If you are going to go to a physical store get some recommendations and limit yourself to a couple so you don't get too flustered. Take a pal for some help or better yet ask your lady love's friend to steer you in the right direction! Make sure you buy certified jewellery to validate its authenticity.

Pay attention to her style – This is the time when you will need to pay a little attention to what your bride to be likes to wear and what her basic style is. A loud glitzy ring for someone who likes timeless and classic styles or a traditional ring for a woman who prides herself on being eclectic and funky just shows that you might not have being paying attention to her preferences!  Does she prefer yellow gold or white metals? Wants a diamond or plain band? Stumped even after trying to study her tastes? If possible ask a close friend or sibling to weigh in on it as well.

Take your time and let your love for her dictate the shopping experience rather than the stress!
