How to choose an engagement ring?
Wearing an engagement ring is a matter of tradition – in our country, for example, it is worn on the ring finger of the left hand. When choosing an engagement ring, don’t hesitate to talk to your chosen one’s loved ones and try to find out what jewellery she likes best.
Do I put it on?
First of all, you need to know the size of the ring you are actually going to use on the person, which is actually the hardest task, if you don’t want to leave anything to chance and not reveal your plans too blatantly. Actually, the most ideal situation is if a woman already wears a ring and you can secretly have it measured. There are also several tips on how to find out the size of the ring when a woman is not wearing one, but not every one of them goes through so that our bride-to-be does not see through it. You can also ask your chosen one’s best friend. If you are unsure of the size, refrain from engraving, messages and dates. It is also recommended to buy a larger size rather than a smaller size.
Different woman, different taste
But if we are with the size of the decision and we go for it, what should we cling on to?
There are endless variations of engagement rings and we should also understand the inner side of a woman to satisfy her in both workmanship and overall design. Someone who likes ornate jewellery probably won’t be dazzled by minimalism, while a sportswoman won’t be impressed by a giant set stone: a stone set subtly close to the finger so that it doesn’t get in the way is better.
What to make it out of? The most popular materials for an engagement ring are white gold, yellow or red gold, or a combination of the two. For example, many women today prefer white gold over yellow. The tradition is the aforementioned settled stone. As a result, even a smaller, well-placed stone can often create a much more impressive visual impression than a large stone. The average price of a gold ring with a diamond or sapphire ranges from about 10,000 to 30,000, but there are of course many more expensive variations.
Will he still sit?
The funny thing about fingers is that a lot of people put a ring on the ring finger of one hand just fine, and wouldn’t cut themselves if they were on the other. You have to reckon with that. Traditionally, the engagement ring is either left on the left ring finger, along with its later counterpart, the wedding ring, or moved to just the ring finger of the right hand.
Judge a book by its cover
Although the engagement ring is the alpha and omega of the whole moment, the prince must also arrive on horseback, so of course we cannot avoid the discussion about the packaging of the engagement ring – the box. It should harmoniously match the atmosphere of the ring and give the impression that there is something inside – the one that a woman has been waiting for all her life.
