Every young man should be prepared well for this day – the day when he will have to choose an engagement ring for his girlfriend. Some people will already have some special ring earmarked for this purpose, according to their family’s tradition. The latest engagement ring style will not matter in this context, because the young couple will choose the emotional context even before the choice was offered. In this case it does not matter what engagement ring style is fashionable and which is not.
The Basics of Choosing a Lovely Engagement Ring
The basics that you should know before making a choice in the type and quality of engagement ring style are very simple. You should know what she likes, her birthday, her finger size and the type of color (and type of clothes) she prefers and so on.
There are many other criteria that go into choosing the right engagement ring style. Let us visit each of the basic concepts here so that the choice would be the best possible in the circumstances.
1. Metal she prefers – most girls love gold, though silver and platinum are more fashionable nowadays. Hence, in case you have not asked her directly or she has not told you otherwise, order the engagement ring style to be made in gold.
2. The way she dresses during her day-to-day activities - the type of ring you choose for her, would have to complement what she wears otherwise it will be extremely difficult for her to keep it on a daily basis.
3. The cost you can afford – this is of course the most important factor. If affordability does not permit, you cannot do much. You take your bride-to-be into confidence and explain to her the situation and hope that she would like to trust you this one time and then for the rest of her life.
Lastly, just in case you cannot conjure the right engagement ring you would have wanted her to have, you may attend the ceremony with any type of ring (even a plastic ring would do ) and then take a few days/week time to get the ring you (and she) really want to have.
In most cases, you can become engaged before choosing an engagement ring and then sit down to discuss the particulars together in order to make the right decisions. Start with the budget, then work your way through preferences until you can agree upon the right solution.
