If you’re ready to get down on one knee and pop the question, you’re probably thinking about what engagement ring you’re going to buy. At Damasci, we’re firm believers that the engagement ring you buy shouldn\'t be the best engagement ring, but that it should be the best engagement ring for your special someone. Everyone has different tastes and different preferences. This means what may be the perfect ring for one person could be simply okay for someone else.
When you buy an engagement ring, you don’t want it to be “simply okay.” You want it to be incredible. Engagement rings are expensive and meaningful and they’re the centerpiece in a very special moment in your life. For these reasons, you’ll want to do whatever you can to get a ring that your future spouse will absolutely love.
If the person you want to marry has very unique tastes, you might be worried about your ability to get a ring that suits them. The good news is that there are so many different types and styles of engagement rings out there, that you’ll almost certainly find one that they’ll love, as long as you know what you’re looking for and you know how to look.
Here are some tips that will help you buy an engagement ring for someone who has unique tastes.
Figure Out What They Want
This sounds simple, but the first step in buying a unique engagement ring is figuring out what your significant other wants. This step may be easier said than done.
One good way to figure out what a person likes is by looking at their existing jewelry. Take a look through their jewelry box (when they’re not around, of course) and see if you can spot any trends. For instance, if they own a lot of yellow gold jewelry, this can tell you that they probably prefer yellow gold to white gold, platinum, or other precious metals.
You also want to consider their personal style and their personality. Someone who is flashy and loud will likely prefer a different type of engagement ring than a person who is more understated and subdued.
Different jewelers will have very different collections. When you’re searching for a unique engagement ring, you probably don’t want to stick to shopping at the first jewelry store you see. That store might have an incredible selection of engagement rings, but if you don’t shop around, you won’t know what else is out there.
The internet actually makes it quite easy to do this kind of comparison shopping.
When you browse for engagement rings online, you’ll be able to check out the different collections that are available at different jewelers from the privacy and comfort of your own home. This means you won’t have to run around from store to store, looking for something you like.
You may also find that online jewelers often carry a larger variety of engagement rings. This tends to be the case because they do not need to have physical space to show everything they have available, so they’ll able to offer more rings than a store that only has a physical location.
Try a Custom Engagement Ring
For a truly unique engagement ring, consider getting a custom engagement ring designed specifically for you. When you choose a custom ring, you can design it exactly how you’d like. This makes it a lot easier to match the unique tastes of your significant other.
The custom engagement ring process starts with a visionary sketch. You sit down with a designer and discuss what you would like in a ring. The designer uses these details to create a sketch.
If you approve the sketch, the next step is a computer-assisted design. This involves the creation of a 3D rendering that you can look at on a computer. This step lets you get an idea of how your ring will look in real life.
After you approve the design, a model is created, usually using a 3D printer. This model translates what you saw in the rendering to an actual physical model that you can look at in real life. If you approve of the model, the actual ring is casted and polished. Then the diamonds and/or other precious stones are set in the ring, the finishing touches are added, and your unique engagement ring is complete!
