Choosing The Perfect Engagement Ring: Three Things You Should Consider

There are three main things you should consider when choosing the perfect engagement ring that will mark one of the most important steps in a man's life.

If you are intending to propose to your sweetheart, but are nervous about choosing an engagement ring, you don't have to worry, because we'll give you some tips that will help you make the best decision.

It's not just the precious gemstone or the ring design itself that matters, but also the color of the gold, whether you opt for a ring with one diamond or more, and it's also important to choose the ideal size.

Here's a quick guide that will help you choose wisely the engagement ring you will surprise your future fiancée with.

What Gold Color To Choose For The Perfect Engagement Ring

When you think of engagement rings, perhaps the first image that comes to mind is that of a yellow gold ring with a diamond. Although yellow gold is very popular, many people prefer white gold or even rose gold.

In recent years, white gold rings have become increasingly popular for a number of reasons. Most often, white gold is preferred because it can easily be matched with anything, even other jewelry. Given that the engagement ring will be worn for a long time, with some women choosing to wear it for life, alongside the wedding ring, it must be a versatile piece of jewelry.

Therefore, give your future fiancée a ring that completely suits her personality and jewelry tastes.

From another perspective, some say it is a good idea to choose gold engagement rings according to the skin tone of your future wife. In this way, this special ring can better highlight her features and fit her perfectly.

You can choose a yellow gold engagement ring for the love of your life if she has a warm skin tone and white gold if she has a cool skin tone.

You can determine her undertone by the shade of your veins: green veins indicate a warm undertone, blue veins a cool undertone, and purple veins a neutral undertone. If she has a neutral undertone, rose gold may suit her perfectly.

Engagement Ring With One Or More Diamonds?

Engagement rings can have a single, centrally placed diamond or an arrangement made up of a central diamond and a few smaller ones around it. Arrangements are usually in the shape of a flower, a heart and even a star. Also popular are rings with a single central diamond and smaller diamonds set on the ring as a kind of belt.

Again, you need to know your future fiancée's tastes very well. If she prefers minimalist jewelry, then opt for a single diamond ring, a delicate ring that she will wear with love. On the other hand, if she's a hopeless romantic and likes to wear jewelry that stands out, opt for a ring with more diamonds, possibly in the shape of a heart.

Pay Close Attention To The Engagement Ring's Size

Last but not least, you should also pay attention to the size of your engagement ring. We know it may seem like a 'Mission Impossible' scene, but it's easier than you think. The easiest way is to borrow a ring from your future fiancée and take it to a jewelry store to choose the ideal size.

Another solution would be to measure the inside of the ring, using a piece of thread or similar material, and then determine the size. This way, you can even order the ring online, as you will know the right size.

Whatever solution you come up with, it's important not to give yourself away, so as not to spoil the surprise.
