Choose metal and setting: The choice of metal and setting is as important as the stone. If your beloved nurtures a fetish for platinum then don’t even bother looking at the rings in yellow gold. Find out which metal and hue appeals to her. If she likes designs, choose a ring with metal filigree lining the stones. Remember this ring will sit pretty on her finger constantly so a secure metal setting is as important as the look. Consult the jeweler and find out about the setting before you finally buy the ring.
Decide the stone type: Once the budget is determined decide on the stone. If diamonds happen to be your sweetheart’s favorite stone, then so be it. Make sure you read through the Four Cs used in diamond buying before you initiate the purchase. If budget is a constraint, look for a piece with diamond accents instead of a solitaire. Not only will numerous diamond accents when put together look breathtakingly beautiful, but also lend a large and elaborate look. The best part being you will acquire it within your estimated budget. If she’s fond of colored gemstones go for one in the color she likes in a lovely design where it’s coupled with diamond accents to add shimmer and style to the ring.
