One of the obvious challenges when you’re buying an engagement ring for your partner is that she (or he) isn’t there to help you choose. Let’s face it, lots of men aren’t great at pre-empting what their partner likes or dislikes. With this in mind, here are some tips for choosing engagement rings:
Look online. Online you can buy rings very easily, and discreetly. The discreet nature of the internet is a real benefit and it means you don’t even have to venture outside of your home to find the perfect ring for your partner.
Online you’ll also find lots of advice, style tips and hopefully plenty of pictures. You can check the latest fashions for engagement rings and perhaps use this for some inspiration. Many online ring merchants offer lots of written advice as well as on-site functionality to help you choose the perfect diamond engagement rings.
On the practical side of things, you need to try and find out your partner’s ring size. This can be very challenging, however perhaps you already know it. If not, you can take one of her rings (preferably one she isn’t wearing) to a jewellers to find out the size. If you do buy a ring that is not the right size fret not and you can always take a ring to be re-sized.
The best way to choose the perfect ring for your partner is to buy something you think your partner will like. This isn’t as hard as you might think and you might just surprise yourself at how well you do.
