Your shopping bag is empty!
Your significant other has just dropped to one knee and popped the question, and you've said yes. Everything was perfect except for one little detail - he didn't have a ring. Today, a lot of men choose not to buy an engagement ring before asking their partner to marry them, so that they can choose their ring themselves.
This might not be as romantic as him choosing a ring for you, but you have to admit that it is thoughtful. The reason that some men choose not to pick a ring themselves is because they want to ensure that it’s just right. The best way to do that is to get their partner to select it so that it’s exactly how they dreamed it would be.
The question is, how do you go about choosing the perfect engagement ring that’s elegant and stylish?
Whatever you do, don’t rush into picking any engagement ring. Take your time to get inspiration and see what’s out there. You’ll be wearing your engagement ring for the rest of your life, so it’s important to choose the perfect one. Have a look online at the different styles, including the ring designs, metal colors and diamond shapes. If you don’t know what you want, you’ll struggle when it comes to selecting the perfect ring design.
Decide on the Metal You Want
The first thing to think about when it comes to your ring style is the color of the metal. When it comes to choosing the perfect metal, it’s not just about the color, though. There’s also various other factors to take into account, such as the strength and longevity of the metal. For engagement rings, it’s best to steer clear of silver as it’s a fairly weak metal. If, however, you would like a silver-colored ring, white gold or platinum are ideal. To find out more about the best metals to choose, have a browse on the Liali website or pop in and visit a Liali store near you.
Select a Diamond Shape
Once you’ve selected the perfect metal, the next step is to choose the shape of the diamond. This can be incredibly tricky as there are so many options to pick from. There are rectangular diamonds, square ones, and round ones, among other styles. Browse online to get an idea of which shape of diamond you think is most beautiful.
Pick a Design You Love
Last but not least, you need to select a ring design that you love. Keeping your metal, diamond and style choices in mind, head to your local jewellers and have a browse. Or, if you would rather shop online, scroll through the options on all of your favorite sites. Choosing a ring design can take time, so don’t worry about erring for a while. What’s important is that you find a ring that you love and will be happy to wear for many years to come.
There you have it, everything that you need to know about selecting a beautiful and elegant engagement ring.
