Everything you need to know about buying an engagement ring

Buying any kind of jewellery is an unenviable task. There are a lot of things you need to consider and it’s a lot more difficult than the majority of people think. You need to know where you want to shop, what kinds of jewellery you suit and want to buy, what will suit your style and what occasion you’re buying it for. However, the stress brought on by these situation pales in comparison to that caused when buying one of the kingpins of all jewellery- an engagement ring. The pressure that comes with doing this is immense and it’s not hard to see why; they epitomise so much and set you and your partner up for life. However, you can deal with this pressure by simply having a plan in place. It’s possible to find the perfect engagement ring with as little stress as possible and that’s why I’m here today. Here’s everything you need to know about buying an engagement ring. 

When you’re looking to buy engagement rings, there are a number of things you have to take in account. The first of these is where you’re actually going to buy yours from. Now, there are a wide variety of jewellery shops out there and you’ll be hard pushed to find one that doesn’t sell engagement rings. That’s why it’s not worth simply walking into the first store you see and buying from there. There are so many choices out there and you need to put in the necessary effort if you want to find the best ring for you and your partner. I’d recommend getting down to as many jewellery stores as you can and checking them all out. This will allow you to form your own opinions on what shops and rings are the best, meaning you can make as well informed decision as possible. Looking at bespoke websites such as jacobsthejewellers.com will allow you to get a feel for what you’d really like in an engagement ring.

Shopping online is also a possibility when it comes to engagement rings. This can actually give you a lot more flexibility and you may also feel a lot less pressure. A lot of people don’t like going into shops to buy one of these- they feel as though people are judging them and are scared of making the wrong decision. By shopping online, you eliminate this. You’ll also get to see photos of all possible rings whether they’re in stock or not and can plan for the future. By shopping online, you could also refine your searches on certain websites. This means you can search for sings based on certain characteristics; price, size or by the stone they have. You’ll have a greater deal of flexibility if you do this. 

Of course, you need to remember that it’s not all about your taste in rings. It will be your partner that’s wearing it after all and if they don’t like it, you’re in for a tough time. Make sure you design or choose your engagement ring based on what you think they’ll like – do they have a favourite stone, for example? If you try and tick boxes like this you could be well on the way to picking the perfect engagement ring.
