How to Buy an Engagement Ring

Men, it’s about that time – time to pop the question and turn your girlfriend into your fiancé. But don’t get ahead of yourself. Before you can ask for her hand in marriage, you need to find the right engagement ring for her. Here’s how to go about it.

How to Buy an Engagement Ring

  1. If you plan on shopping for the engagement ring with your girlfriend, discuss styles, stones and budget.
  2. You’ve always heard that you need to spend two to three month’s salary on a ring, but that’s just a myth. Spend an amount you are comfortable with.
  3. Don’t guess her ring size, do some detective work to figure it out. Sneak a ring out of her jewelry box, put it on your finger and mark where it hits on your finger. Then head over to a jeweler and have him tell you her ring size.
  4. If you’re surprising her with a ring do your research to find out what kind of style she prefers. Ask her friends and family and observe the kind of jewelry she wears.
  5. Explore all of your options. You don’t have to stick to the typical white diamond – there are so many more you can choose from: pink diamonds, yellow diamonds, emeralds, sapphires, etc.
  6. When looking at diamonds, keep the Four Cs in mind: cut, carat, color, and clarity. If you’re spending all that money, you want to make sure it’s a good quality diamond.
