How to choose the perfect engagement ring

Finding the person you want to marry is one thing but get the wrong ring and things may get off to a rocky start. It isn’t easy to choose a ring without the other persons input, not only do you have to work out the size that you need but there are also so many design choices and so many future implications. So how can you choose the perfect engagement ring?

Pay attention to personal style

When choosing from all of the different engagement rings available you need to make sure that your choice matches the recipient’s style. If your fiance to be is into fun and quirky things then buying a plain ring for them may make them think you don’t know them, yet buy something too far out there and they might think you don’t take marriage seriously.

Stick to a budget

Getting engaged and then getting married is expensive so saving money if you can is good but you also can’t be seen to be cheap. There are lots of options for you to choose from but take a look at moissanite rings. The stones are long-lasting, sparkly and almost identical to a diamond yet they cost around 90% less. Moissanite is also conflict-free so you don’t need to worry about the ethical implications from your choice.

Plan ahead

When choosing the perfect engagement ring you need it to look good as a stand-alone ring as well as partnered with your choice of wedding rings. Planning how the rings will look together in the future isn’t as easy as it sounds and sometimes it is worth buying a bridal set where you get the engagement ring and the wedding ring at the same time and from the same set so you know that they work well together.

If you don’t think that this is a decision that you can take alone then why not get some help from your soon to be bride’s family or friends or if you have already discussed marriage then from the bride to be herself. Head to Jeulia for more inspiration!
