couple-loveWell, you’ve done the hard part and found a woman that you want to marry. Congratulations! A lot of people don’t make it this far. Now all you have to do is find the perfect engagement ring. Are you up for the task? Some people get overwhelmed by the idea of searching for the right engagement ring, but all you really need to do is do a little research and put some thought into it. Are you ready?

The first thing you need to do is think about what kind of a woman your woman is. What is her actual style? When it comes to rings, what kind of a ring do you think she might enjoy for many years? This is going to be something that she wears frequently so you want to make sure that she loves it. Does she enjoy gold or platinum? Does she enjoy vintage style cuts or modern cuts? It’s also a good idea to ask her friends and family members once you find rings that you have to choose from.

Choosing the metal is something that you definitely need to give some thought to. What kind of metal would she like best? Platinum? White Gold? Yellow Gold? There are definitely advantages and disadvantages to each metal, but it really depends on taste. Which metal do you think she would prefer to wear? What kind of jewelry does she like to wear now?

However, rubies, sapphires, and opals are also a very popular choice. What do you think your partner would like the most? Perhaps she has a soft spot for rubies, for example. Maybe sapphires have more significance in your relationship than diamonds do. On the other hand, some women expect a diamond. It really depends on who you are, where your relationship is, and what she prefers.

You may want to choose a loose stone if you do want to go with a diamond. Typically, in the stores, the markup of a gem is very high, and loose gems will give you a more individualized look and allow you to save money.  Then it will be easier to have the gem placed in a ring that she will really appreciate.
