3 Things You Should Know Before You Get Engaged to a Diamond

Congratulations! You and your partner have decided to get engaged. That's an exciting moment for any couple and one that deserves to be celebrated properly. Whether you're doing the proposal yourself or having someone else do it on your behalf (ahem), there are a few things you should know before you go shopping for that perfect diamond ring:

Know your budget.

It's important to know your budget before you start shopping for a diamond. Don't get caught up in all the hype surrounding diamonds (or any other product, really) and don't be afraid to negotiate. If you can't afford what you want, it may be time to walk away from the table and look elsewhere.

Don't listen to your friends when it comes to what will look good on your partner.

Your friends know you, but they don’t necessarily know what will look good on your partner. They may have a bias towards diamonds or other types of jewelry, and they may not be able to see your partner's style. If they get engaged before you do and then continue to wear their engagement ring after getting married, that isn't an indication that you should choose the same type of ring for yourself—it just means that they decided diamond was right for them!

Come in with a loose idea of style, but don't be afraid of an open mind.

When you walk into a store, have a loose idea of what you're looking for, but don't be afraid of an open mind. Don't be afraid to try something new and ask the salesperson questions (but don't just do it so they can sell you something). They might have some great suggestions that will save you money and get your ring on your finger faster.

Don't be afraid to say no if the ring doesn’t fit right or isn’t your style, or if it's just not working for you—and don’t feel pressured into buying anything because of how much time has already been spent there with them and their assistant. Finally, don't feel like walking away is giving up either: by leaving the store without making any purchases at all means that there is still time left in this process before making any decisions about what kind of diamond engagement ring will look best on her hand as she says “I Do”!

Conclusion

So, if you are thinking about proposing to someone, the first thing you need to do is know yourself and your budget. Don't listen to your friends when it comes to what will look good on their partner. Come in with a loose idea of style, but don't be afraid of an open mind. And lastly: Don't be afraid of asking for help!
