The Best Way to Buy a Diamond Engagement Ring for Renewal of Vows

When you are renewing your vows, buying a new engagement ring is an exciting time in your life, but it can be daunting too! Here are some tips to help you make the correct decision based on your partner’s style and budget when looking for a diamond engagement ring for renewal of vows!

When it comes to buying a diamond engagement ring, the best way to do it is by knowing what your partner's style is. If you don't know the specific style that you're looking for, ask them about their favorite piece of jewelry. If they are any kind of expert on diamonds or rings in general, then take note of what they like and dislike about each piece.

Once you have an idea of what your loved one likes, explore some different options based on their personal tastes. This will help narrow down where and how much money should be spent on this special day. After all, the most important thing is making sure that this gift reflects their personality as well as yours!

1. Know your partner's style.

Before you begin shopping for the ring, take a look at what kind of jewelry they already wear. Your partner's answer to this question can be a good indicator of what they would want in an engagement bands and whether or not it will match their other jewelry pieces as well. Ask questions like: "What kind of ring do you love?" or "What rings have you been looking at lately?", and ask them to show them to you if possible (although don't expect too much—they may have bought it without telling anyone). If they don't wear any rings now, try asking friends or family members who might know about their taste in jewelry and see if that helps with narrowing down some ideas for future reference!

2. Decide on the type of setting you want.

Once you've chosen a diamond, it's time to decide on the type of setting you want. The setting is the part of the ring that holds your diamond and makes it look pretty. There are three main types:

  • Solitaire (a single stone)
  • Halo (multiple stones surrounding a larger center stone)
  • Prong (with four prongs around each side)

You'll also have to choose between different metals for your engagement ring and wedding band. Gold is popular because it's long-lasting, shiny, and doesn't require maintenance like platinum does. Platinum has an even higher value than gold because of its rarity—it's about twice as expensive per ounce than gold—but requires more upkeep since it can tarnish over time if not regularly polished with special cleaning solutions. Be sure to talk with your jeweler about which metal works best for you!

3. Know the 4 Cs and how they work together to make the perfect ring or jewelry.

Carat is the size of your diamond. It’s also its weight, which means that a diamond with more carats will be heavier than one with fewer carats. This isn’t necessarily an important factor in how a diamond looks, but it can make a big difference in price; large diamonds are often much more expensive than smaller ones because they have greater rarity and value.

When you choose a stone based on its carat weight, there are two basic choices: stones that weigh between one and 2 carats (a “1/2ct” diamond), or those that weigh between 2 and 5 carats (an “over 5ct” stone). Most women don't want any less than 1/2ct for their engagement ring or anniversary ring, but if you're shopping for other jewelry items like rings or earrings then we recommend going up to about 3-4 cts for every piece because then it will look good even when worn alongside other jewelry without being too flashy looking as well as helping balance out your overall outfit's overall appearance.

4. Make sure it’s the right size!

If you are shopping for a diamond ring, it is important to know your partner’s ring size. If you guess and get it wrong, there may be some embarrassment involved when she has to have the jeweler resize her engagement ring! While some people worry about asking their partners what their size is for a new piece of jewelry, this should not be an issue here since the renewal of vows will be a surprise.

Let’s assume that you want to get her an engagement ring that matches the one she already has. To avoid any problems with sizing, take her existing piece into the store with you and ask them if they can make sure its exact specifications line up with whatever design or style of band they recommend as well as how big its center stone will be (this will determine how much metal needs to go around it).

5. Choose a jeweler wisely and do your research before making a purchase online or in store.

Choosing a jeweler is one of the most important decisions you’ll make when buying an engagement ring. If you are having a renewal ceremony, you want to be sure that your jeweler is trustworthy and reputable. Here are some things to look for:

  • Request references and check them out before making a purchase. Ask to see their certificate of authenticity, diamond grading report, insurance policy and any awards they may have received as well as any references they can provide from previous customers.
  • Check their background on consumer review sites like Yelp! or Angie's List to see what other people have said about them in the past. An excellent place for an unbiased opinion is Facebook comments!

6. Ask your jeweler if they will include an appraisal with your purchase, a diamond or jewelry grading report or other paperwork that should accompany any fine jewelry purchase.

  • Ask your jeweler if they will include an appraisal with your purchase, a diamond or jewelry grading report or other paperwork that should accompany any fine jewelry purchase.
  • This may seem like overkill to you, but this is the best way to ensure that you have a record of the value and quality of your diamond if and when it comes time to sell it. If you don’t have such documentation, then there could be issues when selling or trading in down the line.

7. Make sure you are getting all warranties and guarantees in writing as part of your receipt or contract with the jeweler.

  • Make sure you are getting all warranties and guarantees in writing as part of your receipt or contract with the jeweler.
  • Whether you are buying from a high-end store or shopping for a diamond engagement ring for renewing vows, it is essential that you have a receipt for your purchase. The receipt should include every detail about the diamond engagement ring including its price, carat weight, color grade, clarity grade and certification number.
  • A warranty ensures that if anything happens to your diamond engagement ring during normal wear (such as chipping or scratching), then it will be repaired free of charge by the jeweler who sold it to you.
