6 Tips to Help Pick Out the Perfect Engagement Ring

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

This beautiful Tacori engagement ring was purchased for $10,000 and is for sale on BravoBride for $2,900.

You can ask almost any married guy, picking out an engagement ring can be quite a process. They learn all about the 4 C’s (Clarity, Color, Cut, and Carat Weight.) but if they haven’t gone ring shopping with their future fiancé they might not know what style of ring she likes. We compiled 6 tips for guys who want to pop the question with the perfect ring.

Look at her current style of jewelry

Does she wear white gold or silver all the time? If so they she probably won’t want a ring that’s made of yellow gold.

Ask her best friend

This is one of the most important things you can do. Typically your fiancé’s best friend will have a good idea of the type of jewelry she likes. Take her shopping with you before you decide on the final ring; just make sure she doesn’t let the cat of the bag before you pop the question.

Talk to her family

Her parents may have a family heirloom that your fiancé’ has always wanted made into a ring. This could also help save a lot of money if you don’t have to buy a diamond and it would have priceless sentimental value.

Make the most of your budget

You don’t have to spend two months of your salary to find the perfect engagement ring. If the diamond is on the small side you can find a beautiful setting that will accentuate it. You can also consider not using a diamond as the center stone, sapphires come in many colors and are a great alternative. Lastly, used engagement rings are a terrific way to get the biggest bang for your buck. Most gently used engagement rings are discounted by 25%-70% off!

Snag one of her rings

If you have no idea what size your fiancé’s finger is, don’t try to guess. Simply take a ring out of her jewelry box and use it as your starting point. The ring will probably still need to be resized a bit so make sure that band you choose is resizeable.

Take the easy way out

If you still have no idea what type of ring she’d like, take the easy way out. Just buy a simple solitaire and then shop for the setting together after you’ve finally popped the question.
