Tips on How to Choose an Engagement Ring

By  | 

‘Guy goes down on bended knee and asks the blushing girl the four magical words. Girl takes a look at the ring and says a definite yes. Guy and girl get married and live happily ever after’.


While most love stories have a perfect happy ending, the ‘engagement ring’ is a much discussed topic. Let’s be honest; girls love to show off their engagement ring (the bigger the size, the better!) and almost every guy who would like to propose to his ladylove in a romantic way is likely to go through panic attacks when it comes to choosing the ring. ‘ Will she like it’, ‘ Is the ring valuable enough, ‘ Is the size of the stone ok’, or ‘What if she rejects it’ are just a few of the questions that flip through a guy’s mind. After all, you want your love to swoon into your arms with happiness when you do pop the question, not to look at the ring with contempt.

That’s why, we’ve penned down a few short and sweet tips to help you find the perfect engagement ring for your sweetheart.

Before anything else, you need to know what kind of a ring your partner would like. Don’t assume that all girls want a diamond encrusted ring or one with an expensive stone. One of the best ways to find out is by asking her indirectly, or if you don’t want to ruin the surprise, then ask her friends to help you out. By doing so, you’ll feel more confident about picking the right engagement ring too.



Check out a few options for yourself just so that you have a fair idea about the price and the value of engagement rings, before actually buying one. Yes, diamonds are a very popular choice for engagement rings but you also get fantastic designs in gold, platinum, white gold or even with other stones.




Now decide your budget and be honest about how much you can afford. If, you will be footing other wedding bills in the future, going overboard on an engagement ring may not be a sensible option. Irrespective of the amount that you decide, make sure that you purchase a ring only from a reputed jeweller. This way, you don’t have to worry about the quality of the ring you will buy. Plus, you’re also assured of service both before and after making your purchase.



Make it personal. Go with your gut feeling. Pick up one that means something to you and will mean a lot more to her. Ask your jeweller to design a unique engagement ring for you or choose a designer engagement ring to make her feel extra loved. Or you could also present her with an heirloom piece that’s been in the family for generations.


Remember, that if your girl truly loves you, she will look beyond the size and price of any engagement ring you present her with. Here’s wishing you the best in finding the perfect ring!
