When looking for the engagement ring for the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, it is not as easy as it may seem. There are a lot of small details that need to be put into consideration. It does not end in making ways to have enough money to buy one. It also does not end either in determining which shop to buy it from. It ends the moment you purchase it. So before you purchase that lovely ring, here are a few tips you may want to consider.
Do take your time in looking for that ring
Yes, you have the money and that you are already very eager to pop that question but, you have to carefully think about it before deciding to buy. Many men have realized that already. They buy the ring they think is perfect for their bride to be but, when they look online or when they look somewhere else, they realized that there is a ring much more fitting for her. You are lucky if you can ask for a refund on that engagement ring but most often than not, it is possible. So, to avoid possible regret, look around first before you finally decide.
2. Do exhaust options
This one is connected to the first one on this list. Do not limit your search to only the favorite, or big, or go-to jewelry shop in your city. Who knows, the engagement ring you are looking for can be found online. Or maybe it can be found in that small jewelry store around the corner. It may even be at the pawnshop! Not all engagement ring designs can be found in the big jewelry stores.
3. Do save up for it
Recent surveys show that a huge percentage of women prefer engagement rings that costs more than a month of a man’s salary and that a huge percentage turn down the proposal if it is not the case which is why you have to save up a bit for it. You love that woman and what other way in showing that you really love her than not going cheap in something that is going to be valuable to her, or even both of you. However, you do not need to go to further lengths up to the extent where you no longer have money for other things. Do not go overboard and spend around more than two months of your salary. Just have the budget enough to please her but not too much that it would do much damage to your finances.
4. Do know what she prefers
This is the most important thing you have to consider before you finally purchase that engagement ring. You may be very sure that a particular design is what she would really love but, it will definitely not hurt if you ask her parents or her friends about what particular design she wants. Be sure also that the friends you will ask advice from will be discreet about it so that you can execute your planned way of asking her hand for marriage in the most perfect way. What she likes when it comes to the design of the ring is truly important because she is the one who is going to wear it for a long period of time so, choose carefully, and most importantly, choose well.
Those are the simple do’s you have to consider first before buying an engagement ring. It does not need to be too complicated for you to decide which one to buy. You just have to be organized and firm. Hope you find that perfect engagement ring for her!
