Understanding Ring Size

Understanding Ring Size

Getting engaged is a sweet and momentous life occasion. Some couples talk and come to an agreement about when is the right moment for it to happen and it almost comes about naturally. Others like to have a surprise and fairytale element where they create a spectacular setting, choose the ring themselves and present that there and then to their prospective life partner. Of course to do it that way, in a setting such as a wonderful cliff top is the stuff of dreams and you'll no doubt have your partner swooning at your feet in awe of your efforts. To achieve that is no mean feat and it does require minute and specific planning. The biggest effort will go into choosing the ring for your partner behind their back.

As traditions change our tastes and desires for our big day become more personal. 

Cut, Clarity, Colour and Carat – the four most important qualities when considering an engagement ring, right? 

Not any more perhaps. British award winning designer Alexis Dove muses that millennials especially are no longer interested in the brilliant cut solitaire diamond rings their mothers yearned for.

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

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.
