Top Guidelines for Choosing the Right Engagement Ring Type

One of the biggest decisions you will make in your lifetime is buying one of the best rings available. This can be a daunting task with so many different types and shapes to choose from. There are currently more than 30 different ring styles to choose from. These designs range from classic, vintage and modern engagement ring styles. Regardless of style or design, there are several key factors that you must keep in mind when deciding on a diamond ring:

Consider Her Lifestyle

A woman's lifestyle can have an effect on the type of engagement ring she'll want to wear every day. If she's an active person who enjoys sports or outdoor activities, she may prefer a halo setting with a few small stones rather than one large diamond in the center of the ring. Since a halo setting has more room for smaller diamonds around the outside edge of the design, it can be more affordable without sacrificing quality or style.

Start Early

Don't wait until the last minute to start looking for an engagement ring. You want to make sure you have plenty of time to look around and find exactly what you're looking for before proposing.

Shop a Local, Reputable Jeweler

When shopping for an engagement ring, it's important to go to a reputable jeweler who will provide you with quality service and advice about what design features are best for your situation. A good jeweler should know the best types of stones for each budget and what styles are appropriate for any occasion. For example, if you're looking for something delicate but still showy, sapphires would be a good choice because they can come in many shapes and colors. Likewise, if you're looking for something bold that will stand out in pictures, choose diamonds instead because they come in different cuts and sizes with lots of sparkle.

Choose the Diamond Shape and Quality First

The first thing to consider when choosing an engagement ring is the diamond shape and quality. The shape of the diamond will determine how it looks on your finger as well as its overall value. The cut, clarity, color, carat weight and certification are also important factors in determining if a diamond is high quality or not.

Ideally, you should get one that has all of these characteristics in perfect condition. When shopping around, make sure you ask for certificates of authenticity from all sellers so that you know exactly what you're getting into before making any purchases.
