From plain metal to exceptionally beautiful diamond styles, there are tons of options to choose from when it comes to buying a wedding ring. Diamonds never go out of style and are always an eye catching and heart stealing option. If you want to buy a diamond ring then there are some things that you should keep in mind which are:
- You should always check the diamond by looking at it in different lighting environments to see if it retains the sparkle or not. If it doesn’t retain the sparkle, then it might not be a real one.
- After you have looked at the diamond in ranging lighting, choose a shape that will compliment your future soulmate’s personality and be the perfect fit for them. If your partner prefers a more edgy fashion then you might go for a square cut. Otherwise, if your partner is a diehard romantic then they might prefer a cushion-cut. There are plenty of variations of shapes like emerald, round brilliant, oval, pear, and specialty cuts. You can choose what might suit your partner the best from all the different shapes.
- Keep in mind the 4Cs of diamonds and decide beforehand that what should be the cut, color, and clarity and karat weight of the diamond. The most important thing is, in fact, the cut quality regardless of the shape of the diamond. The cut quality can affect the diamond’s sparkle and a well-cut 1¾ karat diamond will sparkle more and appear bigger than an ill-cut 2 karat diamond.
- Set a budget beforehand. You should shop with the supposition that you may spend about 3 percent of your total budget on the rings and keep a range of about $300 to $1000 reserved for the rings. Be very clear when deciding what is appropriate and fits your budget. You should not go for pricey diamonds and golds just because it’s the most wanted and the expected choice of all. Try to find something that will keep you in a win-win situation yet it is light on the budget and beautifully elegant on the hand.
- Last but not the least, Try to think outside the “Diamond box” and always explore your options. If diamonds are not the style of your life partner then there are always options of getting sapphires, rubies or you can also go for different metals, traditional gold and silver and various other precious metals such as white gold, platinum or rose gold can also be a good option to choose from.
