A Proposal That Won’t Flop: Buying an Engagement Ring

Engagement rings are something you should give careful thought. Proposing to your other half should be a special event, so every single detail should be perfect.

One of the most important things you should plan for is the engagement ring. This will serve as a symbol of your love for your other half and also, you will be showing them and everyone else the ring during your proposal. Today, we will discuss a couple of things you should remember when picking out yellow gold wedding bands for her (or him):

Know Your Budget Range

The first thing you must determine is your budget. You should know how much you are willing to spend on the ring so you can start looking for different bands and diamonds or other types of stones.

You should also ask the store about their payment options and if they accept layaway, financing, or bank wire. This is especially important if you are trying to buy a ring with a limited budget, so make sure to ask this firsthand.

Decide on a Ring Style

Selecting a specific ring style and design is not the easiest, especially if you have no clue as to what your loved one really want when it comes to jewellery. You can ask their friends and family about their preferred jewelry style, or you can ask a couple of subtle questions so they can drop a couple of hints.

Another way to know their style is to take a good look at their wardrobe. See if they have a modern, classic, glamorous, nature-inspired, rugged, or other types of styles so you can have an idea of what ring type they would usually go for themselves.

Know Ring Size

You would not want to get your significant a ring that would not fit them, would you? Make sure you know their exact ring size before buying an engagement ring for them. Having the ring repaired or resized can be expensive, so make sure to ensure the size, as you would not want to shell out a couple more dollars just to get it resized. Take a peek at theirjewelry box and see if you can sneak one ring out so you can bring it to the jeweler.

Keep the Ring Protected

You would want the ring to look its best up until the moment you give it to your loved one. Make sure to keep it protected by having it insured by the jeweler. Ask them if the purchase comes with free insurance and if not, make sure to ask them if you can get one for it.

Rings that are modified might not be valid for insurance, though, so make sure to get the right style and size so you would not have to get it modified anytime soon.

Keep the ring safe and secure in a place that you know your future fiance would not be able to see it. Make sure that it is safe from dust, rust, and other factors. Good luck and may you get her to say the sweetest “yes” from them!
