Tips to make your engagement ring meaningful

engagement ring

Apart from the buying of a house or a car, an engagement ring is one of the important and most significant purchases of your life. But for many guys, walking into a jewellery store feels like entering a maze. There are so many variables to judge, so many wrong turns to make and so many questions to ask. How big should it be? How much should I spend? What if I buy a fake? And underlining all those concerns is one single goal: finding the ideal ring, which his fiancé will cherish forever. It shouldn’t look like every other ring because then it'll be just a piece of jewellery without any symbolic value for your relationship.

How to pick the perfect engagement ring

rings

When it’s time to get down on one knee, throw out everything you think you know about nerves. Aside from the time and the place, your proposal has to contain all the perfect elements that’ll help your significant other say yes. Whatever your budget or your situation, one of the most important parts of any engagement is the ring.  

The perfect engagement ring will vary from couple to couple. For instance, few partners in a couple that is struggling for money will appreciate an expensive rock that gets them into debt. No partner in a wealthier couple that has plenty of money to spend will thank you for a cheapskate ring, either.
