Choosing An Engagement Ring - How To Buy An Engagement Ring Powered By Docstoc
					When choosing engagement rings, there are many factors that you should consider. These factors go well
beyond budget and may make the difference between choosing engagement rings that your fiancé will
love and selecting one that she will like. Among these are styles, metal and fit as well as whether or not to
design your own engagement ring. There are many different styles of engagement rings. This fact may make
the selection of one seem overwhelming. But you can make this task easier by making note of your future
fiancée's style. Some questions to ask yourself are: What types of jewelry does she where? Is it modern or
vintage inspired? Is it extravagant, overstated or understated? Does she wear lots of gemstones? If so, does
she have a favorite gemstone? Does she wear a lot of custom jewelry? The answers to these questions can
help you start to understand her taste in jewelry. They may also point you in some very obvious directions.
For instance, if she really loves vintage jewelry, you would probably be safe selecting from vintage
engagement rings. If she loves a certain gemstone, you could select from gemstone engagement rings or
design your own engagement ring and incorporate that gemstone in it. You could also use her favorite color
to select a gemstone to use. The metal consideration is more straightforward. Does she wear yellow or white
gold or platinum exclusively? Does she wear one metal more than any others? Does she mix metals and
wear a lot of jewelry that is both yellow and white gold, etc..? Whatever she wears exclusively or the most
of is a good bet to please her. You can find engagement rings or for that matter design your own engagement
ring in all of the above in many different styles. When I mentioned fit as a consideration in selecting
engagement rings, I was referring to the appearance of the ring on her finger. Just as there are clothing styles
that flatter each shape, there are engagement rings styles to flatter every finger size. Wider bands and longer
stones are more flattering on longer fingers. Thinner bands and more symmetrical stones tend to flatter
shorter fingers by making them look longer. Small stones and petite bands can look lost on large hands. If
you are looking for substantial engagement rings that won't get lost on your fiancée's finger and your
budget doesn't allow a larger diamond, moissanite or other gemstone engagement rings are options. Another
option is choosing an engagement ring setting with lots of melee or pinpoint diamond accents and a modest
sized center diamond. The effect is the same but the cost is much lower.Style, metal and fit are all very
important when choosing an engagement ring. Be sure to pick up as many clues as possible from your
fiancé and be sure to listen to any subtle hints she might give. These hints could come in the form of
commenting to you how much she likes other peoples' engagement rings or, even more important, how
much she dislikes them. If you are still in doubt, you can purchase a diamond and propose with it, allowing
her to choose or design her own engagement ring afterwards. With some companies, you can also purchase
proposal or loaner engagement rings to propose with and receive credit when you purchase or design your
own engagement ring.
