We are getting very close to engagement season. You read that correctly, engagement season, which spans from Thanksgiving through Valentines Day. The 6 most popular days to be proposed to being Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day and Valentine’s Day. As engagement season approaches, I thought it appropriate to discuss buying the perfect engagement ring. Below is a guide from Tara from Primestyle
A Visual Guide to Buying the Perfect Engagement Ring
So you’ve found the person whom you want to spend the rest of your life with. Now you can’t wait to, as that one Beyoncé song goes, “put a ring on it”!
But most people don’t have a ring ready when they get into a relationship (unless your family has one as an heirloom). An engagement ring doesn’t just “happen.” It’s the result of a relationship that has been allowed to grow and develop.
An engagement ring is more than a fancy piece of metal with a sparkly stone. It symbolizes the end of one journey and the beginning of another. It’s not just a marketing stunt by the jewelry industry. Since ancient Egypt, rings have been used as a sign of affection, an apt description.
That’s exactly what an engagement ring is—an expression of love and commitment. When you choose an engagement ring, you’re spending not only your money, but also your time, energy, and thoughts on buying the perfect one.
It can be overwhelming with so many options to choose from, but this comprehensive infographic will guide you in buying the right ring for your partner. Learn about the different gemstones, shapes, bands, and mounts to choose from.
Determining your partner’s ring size can be tricky and may require some sneaking and reconnaissance. However, knowing which finger an engagement ring goes on will certainly help. Once you have the perfect ring on hand, you’re halfway done with planning your proposal.
Preparation is key in proposals. Don’t rush your proposal, but don’t delay it too. Come up with a budget, create a plan, and follow it as closely as possible. During the proposal, don’t hesitate to get out of your comfort zone, but be considerate of your partner. They should be the first thing in your mind when buying the ring and planning the proposal.
