Buying an engagement ring

When lovers decide to become an engaged couple, it is a custom to buy a ring for the girl or both to wear on their ring finger. Others wear it on their third finger. Ideally, an engagement ring is something that you should be happy to wear for a long time and may even be passed on to future generations.

Buying an engagement ring requires you to consider the following:

1.  Stones
There are many engagement ring choices today. Some of them are:

Diamonds
The durability of this stone makes them last almost forever. This is especially true for the high-quality ones. If budget is a concern, there are other variants of diamonds to  choose from, such as the cubic zirconium, that can also take its place.

Precious or semi-precious stones
With the popularity of gem stones and their meanings, they have become popular choices as well for engaged couples. Precious stones alternative to diamonds are rubies, emeralds, and sapphires. All others are considered as semi-precious or ornamental stones.

2.  Style
Choose whether you’ll go for solitaire, cluster of stones, or band. This includes any special setting or arrangement you may have in mind.

3.  Budget
Set an amount that both of you can afford to spend.

The ideal engagement ring should be easy to keep clean and sparkling. Make sure to get advice on how to do that. You may also want to get a valuation certificate for insurance purposes.
