7 Tips for Choosing Your Girlfriend's Diamond Engagement Ring

So you have a special lady in your life and you want to ask her to marry you. Congrats! Asking someone to marry you is one of the most exciting things ever, but it's also super nerve-wracking. Now that you're ready to pop the question, it's time to figure out how to pick out her diamond engagement ring. There are many factors that go into choosing a girl's diamond engagement ring and none of them are easy.

Start with a budget.Before heading out to shop, set a budget and stick with it. You don’t want to spend too much or too little on a diamond ring, which can impact your relationship in different ways. If you overspend, your partner may feel uncomfortable wearing her new piece of jewelry. On the other hand, if you go too cheap, she may feel like she doesn’t deserve something more expensive or that her ring is not special enough because of its price point. Either way, this will only cause problems in your relationship down the road.

Shop around. Don't rush into buying a diamond engagement ring — especially if you're not sure what she wants. Take her shopping with you, and let her pick out some diamond rings she likes. That way, if she doesn't like the one you choose, she won't feel like you picked something out without her input.

Choose the right diamond.Diamonds come in many different shapes, sizes, colors and clarity grades. The most popular cuts are round, emerald cut, princess cut and radiant cut. If you don't know which one is best for your girlfriend, just ask her best friend or sister what she prefers. They can give excellent advice on what styles look good on certain faces.

Engage her friends in the process.If you're serious about your girlfriend, you should be serious about getting her friends involved. They'll help you pick out a diamond engagement ring that she will love and be comfortable wearing every day. If you're lucky enough to have a sister or close friend who's married, ask her for advice on what to look for in a diamond engagement ring.

Consider her lifestyle.Don't buy a diamond ring just because it looks beautiful or expensive. Make sure that it suits her lifestyle and can withstand the rigors of daily life. If she is an active person who likes sports, then look for a ring that is sturdy, durable and won't get in the way while she's playing tennis or golfing with friends. If she is more of a stay-at-home type who likes gardening or cooking, then invest in something more delicate that won't get damaged easily when she's working in the kitchen or garden.

Get her the diamond she wants.There's no better way to ensure a lifetime of happiness than by giving her the ring she's dreamed about for years. Don't worry about cost — diamonds come in every price range, and there are plenty of ways to save without sacrificing quality or style.

Pick the details yourself.Your fiancée may have an idea of what she wants in a diamond engagement ring, but don't let her decide everything. If you want something unique and special, take charge and pick out the details yourself. Let her know what kind of stone or metal she can choose from after all the decisions are made.

Final Thoughts. The most important thing to remember when it comes to buying the perfect diamond engagement ring for your special lady is to not make the process about yourself. You are not doing this for you; you are doing it for her. It's her diamond engagement ring, so don't forget that. It's going to be a big symbol of your love, so keep that in mind as well.
