Taking your relationship to new heights requires a perfect so-called master plan. This involves contemplating on the right way to let your partner know through presenting her an engagement ring. What are we talking about? We are talking about cementing the next big step in a relationship, expressing commitment and the desire of unity, the proposal. Engagement rings are not just a symbol that a girl agreed to be engaged and will soon be married. This is not merely updating a social media status or appeasing the thought of finally settling down. It is a symbol of finding the right person to share the rest of your life with. This is the reason why your perfect dame requires the perfect engagement ring for her.

Offering an engagement ring to ask for a girl's hand in marriage has been considered a tradition.

However, this tradition requires a hefty sum of money because it can be expensive. Considering buying an engagement ring can be risky particularly if you are one of those individuals who are not aware of how the jewelry market works.

Basically, most men lose hope because they cannot afford the price of engagement rings. However, most of these men are not aware that there are plenty of jewelry shops, primarily engagement rings, in the market. This means it is possible to get your hands on an engagement ring you can afford. You just have to strive harder to obtain the perfect engagement ring for your partner.

Achieving Perfection When Selecting E-rings

  1. 1
    Know your budget
    It is a simple yet straightforward step in obtaining the perfect ring for your partner. Purchasing the engagement ring is just the first expense you will face when choosing the path of married life. This means there are a lot of expenses to take care of. There is nothing wrong in setting a fixed budget; it is realistic and it allows you spend what you can only afford.

  2. 2
    Visit multiple ring stores
    You cannot call your e-ring perfect if you visited only one to two shops. If possible, visit stores as much as you can and when you visit each one, observe for the following:  
    1. The physical attributes of each ring.
    2. The price of the ring.
    3. Does the cut of the stones match the ring price?
    4. Discount, if there is any.

  3. 3
    Be objective not subjective
    Remember, you are giving one of the best gifts your partner will ever receive in her entire life so far. The ring must be chosen based on your partner's interests and style and not centered on yours. Do not be a bad monkey and only think for yourself. Always think about whether she will like it or not. Here are some hints on how to know whether she will love it:  
    1. Talk to her friends. Girls love to share beyond what you could imagine with their friends and this includes what engagement rings they prefer.
    2. The ones that will definitely know what your partner wants for her ring are in her inner circle, so talk to her family, especially to her sister, if she has one.
    3. Spend time talking to her to gain hints on what she wants for her e-ring. Just make sure it is not too obvious. You do not want her to suspect you or else the element of surprise will be lost.

    Talk to your jewelry expert
    The one who can advise you the most when it comes to deeper knowledge on picking what is good, bad, trendy or not too trendy is your jewelry expert. These experts are hired and trained for this purpose, so why not utilize them and let them educate you on what are your options. However, just be careful because not all ring sellers are there to advise you; some are only interested in increasing their sales or achieving their daily quota, which results in them offering you just any kind of expensive ring.

    Avoid peak season
    There are specific months when a lot of individuals are choosing their perfect ring for their partners. This season may depend on your location. Peak season means the price may definitely increase. Achieving perfection must not be rushed. Buy the ring during seasons that are not too busy. In addition, during off season, jewelers sometimes offer big discounts.

    Why not shop together
    Another great way to obtain the perfect ring is by selecting the ring together. There is nothing sweeter (and it can also be considered practical), than when you and your partner decide which ring will be the perfect one.

Calling Mr. Piggy bank


If you are rich enough to buy the most expensive engagement rings out there, then there will be no problem. However, if you are not rich, do not rush things just to make your partner feel happy about it. This will only result in you being poor or getting piles of bills you are unable to pay. You do not want this to happen to you. The ideal way to buy your perfect ring is to save money. Saving the right amount of money aids greatly when investing on engagement rings

Tips, Tricks and Warnings

  • Do not forget to find out whether the ring is legit or fake. There are many couples that end up crying or devastated because they bought fake engagement rings. You may be laughing, but this might happen to you. The popularity of engagement rings had LED other individuals or stores to take advantage of it.
  • If your budget is limited, there are jewelry shops that offer layaway payment plans. Just make sure to be responsible when paying on time.
  • Ask for a receipt when you purchase an engagement ring. There are some stores that allow you to return their items if you bring along their official receipt with you. Just make sure to read their policies about returning an item.
  • The ring will not be perfect without the essence of presenting it at the right time, right date, right place and right preparation. Do not forget to consider this factor; it adds the needed spark to your proposal.

What are you waiting for? If you are reasonably ready, man up and give your partner a dose of perfection.
