Choosing a diamond engagement ring, let alone any ring, you are going to propose to your future fiancé with can be a daunting task. You may have never dreamt you would be in this scenario, but the time has arisen! You just know your partner will love a diamond ring for engagement, so you want to make sure she gets everything she hoped for.

 

The good news is, it’s all a lot easier than you think. Once you know a few things, build up some knowledge on the commonalities in diamond rings, you will know exactly what you are doing. It can be tricky when you’re searching online however and if you need a point in the right direction, you can find some brilliant diamond engagement rings at Serendipity Diamonds. Their stunning collection showcases a range of settings, diamond cuts and sizes that will suit the tastes of your chosen one.

 

So now let’s look at some key elements you will need to know to make the diamond engagement ring shopping much easier.

 

  1. Get a price fixed in your head. Knowing how much you want to spend on the diamond ring will really help you narrow down your choices. Maybe you and your partner are going shopping and are purchasing together which may make things easier. If not however, you want to know your budget and go for something within the parameter.

 

  1. Get clued up on the 4 C’s: ‘The four who’s?’ I can hear you asking in the back of your mind. The four C’s are pretty simple. They just include the colour, cut, carat weight and clarity of a diamond. These will vastly affect the price and look of your ring. These specifications were established by the GIA. Buying your ring from a GIA certified store or jeweller is another thing you want to watch out for to ensure they’re reputable. For example, choose a trusted store like Serendipity Diamonds in the UK and is GIA certified.

 

  1. Get to know your partners taste in jewellery. This may mean doing some sneaking around on your part, but it will help! If she has any rings with gemstones in or smaller diamonds, you can get an idea of the band style and settings she likes. Does she prefer something more toned down or something that stands out? These are the elements you want to look out for. You will also want to look at the shapes of stones she prefers. This comes down to the cut of the diamond and should influence your choice in this department. Are there mainly square stones, round stones, diamond shaped stones in her collection?

 

  1. Get the size pinned down. The sure fire way of getting this correct is sneaking away one of her rings and taking it to the jeweller. They will then inspect it and figure out the correct measurement and use it to craft the engagement ring.

 

Getting familiar with these elements will really help you pin down the perfect diamond engagement ring to buy your fiancé.
