HOW TO FIND THE PERFECT RING
Congratulations, you’ve taken the leap of faith and started the process of getting ‘Engaged’.
Just like you – we know how IMPORTANT this is, and we know how to create the most beautiful ring she will love for a lifetime.
Getting the perfect ring is important, and we know that when she sees her ring for the first time, you want her to be totally impressed by you and blown away. And the true test is when she shows she shows her friends and family.
She’ll also love it even more because it comes from you!
…But where do you begin?
We’re about to give you the Inside Secrets on how to find her perfect ring, share with you the three biggest hurdles every guy faces when selecting the perfect ring, and show you how to overcome them.
# 1. HOW DO I KNOW WHAT SHE LIKES?
If you’re like most guys we know, jewellery shopping isn’t something that sounds like fun or easy to do with confidence.
For most guys, the idea of having to select an Engagement Ring can be a little horrifying and they just don’t really know where to start.
If she has given you any ideas or hints over the years (maybe she sent you some images) this can be super helpful.
OR : If you’ve no idea where to start, what do you do?
Most seem to love the Timeless Classic Designs where the Diamond is the centre of attention in an Engagement Ring, but if she wears jewellery that’s a little more complex and bolder, she might like something with a few more diamonds on the sides or extra detailing.
You can have a look at what she wears regularly or what is sitting in her jewellery box or hiding place, you know the bowl, box, cup, bench top or secret drawer where she stores all her rings and things in.
Have a quick look, are they mostly ‘Gold’ or ‘Silver’?
Whether she’d like White, Rose or Yellow Gold is a great step on the road to the perfect ring and you can often pick up on this by just looking at what she might already wear.
Same goes for general design style, is the jewellery she wears plain and simple with a timeless Classic look, or super busy with detailed designs?
If you’ve got to this point and you’ve still got no idea, don’t stress!
The most important thing to remember is that if you’re unsure, ‘Classic’ and ‘Simple’ is best because they never go out of fashion.
Plus, it won’t be long before you can actually look at a ring, and you’ll realise how much you do really know her style and what she’d like.
We can help guide you through the process of selecting the perfect design too, so you’re never alone!
#2. HOW MUCH SHOULD I SPEND?
This is probably one of the most burning questions in your mind right now.
If you’re like most guys, you want to get it right, but you just have no idea how much you should be spending. And you’re terrified it’s going to cost you an arm and a leg to give her the ring she loves.
Many people say you should spend 3 months wage on it, and others say a whole lot more. The truth is though, it is what you are comfortable with that matters most.
After all, we all know you get what you pay for, but when others throw figures at you, it can all be quite overwhelming.
The important thing in reality, is that you spend what’s right for you and what represents you and your partner as a couple.
Even the average price isn’t going to tell you what’s right for you, as it’s just this – an average.
This means that not everyone spends the same amount, because it truly is different for each individual.
For some, $4,000 to $6,000 is the perfect amount, and for others its $7,000 to $10,000, and others it’s $15,000 to $20,000 and so on.
A good way to work out what’s right for you to invest in the ring she will wear for a lifetime, is to think about what you’d be comfortable spending.
Decent Engagement rings can be made for as little as $3500 and the options from here are endless.
As the price increases, the size of the diamonds also increase.
Don’t push yourself above what you’re comfortable and are happy to spend though, as this will make the process more complicated.
Get an idea of what you’ll get for the price range you’re comfortable with…
Then set a limit and stick to it.
Either way, remember that you’re in control and should simply be guided to the option which suits you best. We think this is super important.
#3. WHERE DO I START?
One of the biggest things most guys struggle with is where to start!
The good news is that if you’re reading this, you already have, and the two steps we’ve just gone through are going to help when it comes to getting started.
Design is often the best starting point and beyond what we’ve just covered about price range and colour of the ring, (yellow, white or rose gold), it’s a good idea to have a look at the sort of style you’d think she might like in real life.
When you see rings in real life, it will help give you a feel beyond photos or rings made in plastic, of what the ring will actually look like. This is where you can explore different styles and feel confident in your decision.
It also helps having people who know the ‘ins and outs’ of selecting the perfect ring there to walk you through the process.
Go with a jeweller who you can trust and deal with someone that makes you feel comfortable and isn’t just interested in getting your money.
There are cowboys and supermarkets in every industry so it’s important to be careful who you trust with such an important investment.
Naturally you want to get great Value and Quality so you want someone who understands that getting it right is important!
