How To Find The Perfect Engagement Ring For The Woman Of Your Dreams
You have finally found the woman of your dreams and have planned out an extravagant proposal. You have even asked her father for her hand in marriage. Now all you need to do is find an engagement ring that will have her crying yes through her tears of joy.
Purchasing an engagement ring can be a daunting task. There will be a lot of pressure on finding the perfect ring. Because it is going to represent your love for her, you want to be sure that she absolutely loves it.
For a lot of men, buying an engagement ring is actually going to be the first time purchasing jewelry for a woman. This alone can be overwhelming with all of options and different things to look for, including the size, setting, and inclusions, just to name a few. Here are a few tip to better prepare you to get the woman you love an engagement ring that fits her in every way.
The very first thing that you will need to do before you even step foot inside of a jewelry store is establish a budget. This will allow you to be able to tell the jeweler from the start, exactly what kind of budget you are working with. This will allow them to narrow down your options that fit within your budget. It is important to keep in mind, much like purchasing a car, you are going to want to negotiate the price.
It is very likely that you have heard that an engagement ring should equate to around two months salary. This is actually false and it is rumored to have been made up by jewelers themselves. There is nothing romantic that is going to come from going in debt over your ring. Instead, you are going to want to buy the best possible ring that you can comfortably afford.
In the end, it is not going to be about how much money you spent on the ring. What really matters is the thought that you put into the proposal and the purchase of the ring. Most women will understand your financial situation and they will actually be glad that you didn't over extend to purchase a ring for them.
The next thing that you are going to want to do is try to find out her ring size. This is where a lot of men go wrong during the purchase process for a ring. They will have the absolute perfect ring picked out, but they end up buying the wrong size for their girlfriend. When they get down on one knee and reach out to place the ring, it doesn't fit. The best way to get your girlfriends ring size is to pick up a ring that she isn't wearing at the time and bring it to a jeweler in order to measure it.
While a lot of men are starting to bring their soon to be wives with them ring shopping, this could cause you to miss out on one of the best opportunities to show your love just how romantic and thoughtful you can be. There is nothing like the look of surprise on your girlfriend's face when you propose to her and giving her no choice but to say yes once she sees that the ring is exactly the ring that she always dreamed of.
You may have never really thought much about her jewelry before but you will begin noticing more and taking mental notes on what she likes. Put her in situations that can get you your answers without making her suspicious of your motives. If you go to a shopping mall, be sure to nonchalantly stop into a jewelry store just to look around. Ask her subtle questions anytime the opportunity arises.
With a little digging and extra attention, you will soon discover just what she wants, giving her no choice but to say yes when you ask her to be your wife.
