If you’ve decided to propose, you’re probably pretty busy thinking of how you’re going to do it, what you’re going to say, where you’re going to pop the question, and much more. However, perhaps the main thing you’ll be thinking about is the engagement ring.
An engagement ring is an important part of a marriage proposal. It’s what will make her eyes light up. It’s what she’ll show off to her friends and family. It’s what she’ll take a photo of and post on social media. Your special someone will wear their engagement ring for the rest of their life.
Since an engagement ring is so important, you’ll want to make sure that you put a lot of thought and effort into choosing a great engagement ring.
Picking the Right Engagement Ring for Her
Choosing an engagement ring isn’t just about picking the ring that is technically the highest quality. Yes, cut, color, clarity, and carat weight (the 4Cs) are certainly important, and we’ll get into them more later, but you’ll also want to make sure that you get the ring that she likes.
Everyone is different. Everyone has their own likes and dislikes. They have their own preferences and their own sense of style. You probably love your girlfriend because she’s special and different and she stands out from the rest. She’s one-of-a-kind, so the ring that you choose should suit her special personality.
Discovering Her Style
When you’re buying an engagement ring, take the time to truly understand her style. Take a look at the jewelry she already owns. This can give you clues as to what type of jewelry she likes. Does she own mostly yellow gold, white gold, or platinum? Is she into ornate designs or more understated style? Does she like classic looks or contemporary pieces?
Consider the rest of her wardrobe as well. The style of clothing that she likes to wear can give you good insight into her fashion sense and this can help you pick an engagement ring that she will truly love. For example, does she like to be flashy or is she more reserved?
Once you’ve thought about her personal style, think of any time that she’s ever mentioned an engagement ring before. For instance, if you’ve had any friends get engaged, what did she think of their rings? She may have commented on celebrity engagement rings in the past, as well. Remembering what she liked and disliked about other rings will help you figure out what she likely wants in her own ring.
Custom Engagement Ring Design
If you’re looking to get an engagement ring that is truly unique, look no further than custom engagement ring design. When you design your own engagement ring, not only are you guaranteed to get a ring that is as special and unique as she is, but you can also design the ring to be just like the one she’s always dreamed of.
When you work with Damasci for custom engagement ring design, you’ll start by meeting with a design specialist who will sit with you and discuss what you are looking for in an engagement ring. The designer will then create a visionary sketch so you can see what your engagement ring will look like.
The sketch is then taken to our computer-assisted designer who will create a three-dimensional render of your design. This allows you to see your ring come to life and give you an idea of how it will look in the real world. Once you approve the design, it is printed on a 3D printer, giving you an additional opportunity to see how the ring will look. From there, the ring is casted in the desired precious metal, the ring is polished, the diamonds are set, and the finishing touches are applied to the ring.
The final result is a one-of-a-kind creation that she is sure to love and treasure forever.
Selecting an Engagement Ring
Whether you are designing a custom ring or choosing one from a collection, you’ll also want to do some research before you make your purchase. The more research you do beforehand, the easier it will be for you to find a ring, and you (and your new fiancée) will be much happier with the ring you’ve chosen. Need some help?
