Choosing Her Wedding Band & Engagement Ring Dallas TX
Your ready to ask her to spend the rest of your lives together. As special as this moment is, you want to be sure the engagement ring you propose with will leave her breathless. A great deal of thought and consideration should be given before you buy a diamong ring for your significant other. Our Dallas diamond consultants suggest you consider the following tips to help you make the right choice.
Determining your budget:
You’ve heard the commercials that suggest you should spend at least two months of your salary on her diamond engagement ring. In reality everyone has a different budget and yours may be less or more. We recommend you establish a set budget before you start shopping and stick to it. America’s Gold and Diamond Exchange has many beautiful, high-quality engagement rings for every budget.
Know her style:
Do you know the types of jewelry she likes to wear? What are her tastes and preferences? If you know these answers then your task of finding her the right ring will be much easier. If you’re not sure, ask her friends or mother. They have ways of finding out her likes and dislikes, whether she likes a traditional diamond solitaire or a more modern setting. Your efforts will be rewarded by pre-determining her tastes and style, ensuring you get the ring she’ll like.
Choosing your band and setting:
As much focus that goes into choosing the diamond, it’s equally important to pick the right band and setting. Think about what kind of metal you want the ring to be. Yellow gold and white gold are traditional choices, while a platinum band is more expensive but much more durable. Look at the width of the band, is it smooth and simple, woven, etched, or cutout detailing. The settings are as varied as diamonds. Many of our clients choose the classic prong setting, but a bezel, pave or tension setting creates a more modern look.
Selecting your diamond:
When choosing your diamond, you need to learn about the four C’s before deciding on the stone or stones to adorn her band.
Color and clarity are signify the quality of the diamond. The carat weight and cut are more of a personal style choice, depending on the size of the diamond she wants and the cut, or shape, she prefers. You can learn more about the four C’s with our diamond buying guide.
Consider wedding sets:
Once you have a clear idea of the type of ring she’ll like, you may want to consider buying a bridal set that includes both the engagement ring and wedding band. Sets are designed so that the rings perfectly complement each other and sit comfortably together on her finger. Buying the rings in a set is an excellent way of making sure her engagement ring and wedding band match flawlessly. Give her the engagement ring when you propose, then save her wedding ring for the special day.
