10 engagement ring shopping tips
How much should you spend?
If you want and can spend a couple months' salary on an engagement ring, that's a great investment. Yet, if that's more than you ever imagined, Payless Daily has plenty of rings that will wow them without breaking the bank.
Know their style
Determine how much you want to spend, think about the ring style. Consider the answers to the below questions to help choose the right style:
- What type of jewelry do they have in their jewelry box?
- What are their favorite clothing brands?
- What are their favorite movies and books?
- Have they ever showed you a ring shape in a magazine or online or boasted about a friend's ring?
What are the most popular ring styles?
Ring styles can be romantic, modern, traditional, or even vintage inspired. Below are some of the most popular ring styles to consider:
- Solitaire rings: Showcasing one center stone, solitaire rings are timeless in style.
- Three-stone rings: For more modern look, we suggest a three-stone ring.
- Halo rings: Featuring a center stone surrounded by smaller diamonds, halo rings are perfect for any style.
- Cluster Rings: Designed with a collection of multiple diamonds, cluster rings offer a unique and vintage-inspired look.
Research the 4 C's
These 4 properties will determine the quality and price of a diamond engagement ring:
- Cut: From a shallow cut to a deep cut, this property is the most important as it will have the greatest impact on a diamond's sparkle.
- Color: The second most important quality which refers to the lack of color in a diamond. The less color, the higher grade. The best diamonds are colorless and are therefore are the most expensive.
- Clarity: Determined to be of the least important features because tiny imperfections are expected and are usually microscopic.
- Carat: This property is measured by the diamonds total weight (the carat weight) not the size.
What are lab grown diamonds?
These are carbon diamonds that are created in a laboratory and are a better value than mined diamonds.
Find the right size
Consider the length and width of their finger and overall size of their hand. These measurements help determine the best shape and size.
Pick the ring setting
Below are some of the most popular settings:
- Channel settings: Creating the band of the ring, smaller diamonds appear to float seamlessly between two metal walls in a channel.
- Three-stone settings: Signifying your past, present, and future, three-stone settings feature a larger stone flanked by two smaller stones.
- Four prong settings: Providing maximum sparkle, a four-prong setting is a classic choice.
- Halo settings: Smaller diamonds surround a larger center stone to create a stunning halo for this dramatic setting.
Choose the diamond shape
There are several shapes to pick from, and here are the most common ones to consider:
- Round diamonds: If you want a traditional look, then a round diamond is the ideal shape.
- Princess diamonds: Known for their name and sparkle, square-shaped princess diamonds stand out.
- Cushion diamonds: If you can't decide between the ever-popular round and princess shapes, consider a cushion diamond that features a square-shaped diamond with rounded edges.
- Oval diamonds: Creating the illusion of slender fingers, oval diamonds are becoming very popular.
Select the precious metal
Not only should you think about the type of jewelry they already wear and what metals they favor, but you should also consider their skin tone.
- White gold: Are their veins blue or purple? If yes, they have cooler undertones to their skin, so they'll look best in a ring set in white gold.
- Platinum: If you're working with a larger budget and love the look of white gold, splurge on a platinum ring that's stronger.
- Yellow gold: Do they have green or olive veins? With warm undertones to their skin, they'll look great in a ring set in yellow gold.
- Rose gold: Trending now? Rose gold--and it looks great on all skin tones.
