Are you about to head to the jewelry store to shop for an engagement ring? If so, you will want to tune in to watch this video first. This video goes over the top 10 things to know before you buy an engagement ring.
Although about 35% of couples spend up to 3 months researching what ring they want before they get engaged, there are some important things you’ll want to consider. First things first, make sure you find a style that suits your finger.
You will want to look at the distance between your knuckle and your hand. With longer fingers, a longer stone might be the better choice. Styles like an emerald-cut or halo-shaped ring might compliment your hand the best. Another thing you should think about is if you want a diamond ring or another gemstone such as a sapphire or ruby. You are not limited to just a diamond engagement ring.
Other important considerations include the cut and shape of the stone. There are many stone shapes such as an oval, princess, marquise, pear, and cushion-shaped stones. Well cut diamonds will give off a brilliant light and more poorly cut stones will lose that light.
