5 Engagement Ring Mistakes to Avoid When Engaging in a Relationship

wedding rings

It's a ring you'll wear for a lifetime. It's likely to be your first major joint purchase. You want to adore your engagement ring so much that you'll look at it nonstop for the rest of the day. There's no rush, okay? The fact that people (ahem, men) research engagement rings online does not imply that they always make wise decisions.. Five common blunders couples make when purchasing an engagement ring and how to avoid them are outlined here.

Stupid, It's The Ring.

As soon as a man begins thinking about purchasing an engagement ring, he becomes completely obsessed with numbers and letters. They obsess over diamond grading to the point of obsession. They look at price lists and the four Cs to find the best deal on a 1.15-carat G VS2 with a 55% table and an EX-EX from the GIA. That's completely absurd. It's a ring, not a rock, that you'll wear for eternity. A happy fiancée is not made by a perfect diamond in a boring setting.

That's a completely irrational way to conduct business. Make sure you're aware of the diamond's cut, color, clarity, and carat weight before purchasing one. Focus on ring trends like Halos, twists, and more while you're at it. Pick the perfect ring style and shop for that, OK?

One Is The Most Pricey Number

What comes to mind when you envision the perfect ring? Is it a 2-carat diamond solitaire? There is a problem! Ten quarter-carat diamonds cost a lot less than one 2-carat diamond because the price per carat goes up as the diamond's size increases. In addition, they have more glitz. People, you're not purchasing a paperweight! When it comes to diamond jewelry, you can get more for your money if you think outside the box.

Two Rings Are Required, Not Just One

You adore the ring that was given to you as an engagement gift. But this is just the beginning. For a wedding band, you'll soon be purchasing one. An engagement ring that doesn't go with a wedding band may force you to compromise on the wedding band or create a more expensive custom shadow band. Make sure to inquire about matching bands before purchasing an engagement ring, as well. You'll be grateful to us in the future.

Flashing For Cash Is The Main Goal Here

Obsession with size can lead to a complete disregard for quality. And that's a bad sign. In the long run, low-quality diamonds don't last. We're not implying that your ring must be flawless. The important thing is to make sure you don't see the inclusion that shows how cheaply you purchased your love's symbolic representation every time you wear your ring. A higher-quality, smaller diamond is a better investment. It could be a large diamond, or a collection of smaller diamonds.

Keeping Up With Kardashians

Everyone loves seeing their friends' ring selfies, so I know you'll enjoy this. And they may have a beautiful ring that you'd be happy to show off. There's no competition here. It's all about the two of you, that engagement ring. Your friends, your coworkers, and your Instagram followers aren't going to help you. Refrain from getting carried away with comparisons between your own and another's rings.

Make yourself happy, not irrational Pick what works best for you, no questions asked. To that one mean girl, if you need to mention a survey that found a correlation between a larger diamond and shorter marriage, so be it! That ring on your finger is proof that you know what's important and what can be easily avoided.
