A Men’s Guide: What You Need To Know About Engagement Rings

February 20th, 2012 by beth16

The only thing that can make a man more nervous than his wedding day is the thought of pouring over engagement rings in search of just the right one. A lot of women spend hours going through prescriptions in magazines and in jewellery stores. A lot of women dream about their wedding day and what the proposal would be like.


No pressure, gentlemen. It is not difficult to find a perfect ring to use on your engagement day. Here is all you need to pick the best ring.


Engagement Rings- It Is An Investment


Engagement rings are intended to be worn forever. It is therefore an investment and not just another item purchase. Do you have to take out a loan? Not at all. You can rather save up a three month salary for it. Though this may not seem realistic for you. You have to consider your budget and the payment. You may spoil the early days you will be living together if you put your hands beyond your financial limits.


Diamond Engagement Rings- Put Her Style To Consideration


As your partner is looking up to that day, you can spoil her day if you don’t give her a ring she is expecting. Take note of her reactions when she passes by a jewellery store or when she sees a ring on another person’s finger. If you can’t make anything from this ask her yourself. If you don’t want to make the proposal a surprise, you can get all you need over time. Here are some things to consider:


  • The colour of the setting: You can get diamond engagement rings in white gold, yellow gold or platinum. Even when platinum might have the look of a white gold, it is more valuable. You can generally find out the colour of gold she prefers just by noticing her current jewellery.


  • The style of engagement ring: Engagement rings are available in the traditional solitaire diamond setting, which is one diamond generally set on a thin band. You can also get engagement rings in other settings. Is she more traditional and classic in her taste? If so, a single, elegant stone may be the perfect engagement ring for her. On the other hand, if she is more on the artsy side, she may be dreaming of a ring that has a bit more going on. If she likes the artsy items, get her a solitaire stone set among a row or two of complimentary diamonds.


  • The cut: The centre stone is the interesting part of any engagement ring. The common cuts of an engagement ring are the round, marquis cut, square and oval. Depending on the setting, different cuts of the centre stone diamond can help create a particular look. With a marquis cut diamond, you can create elegant look but with a square cut you will get a loyal look.  A uniformly cut round diamond engagement ring may be the best choice for you.


  • Quality: Diamond rings are popular for their quality. Of course you will come across many diamond grades and levels, but you need to remember this: If you are able to select a perfect, clear, brilliant and a sparkling diamond ring when making a purchase, know that it will remain like that for years to come. The key is to find the matching cut and setting. After you have the engagement ring selected you can spend some time learning about grades of diamonds.



We hope this information has been helpful as you take that first step towards the ‘big day’ by selecting the engagement ring that is perfect for her. Perfect engagement rings
