Here are a few tips on how to be prepared for that special shopping trip!
Engagement ring shopping can be both an exciting and nerve-wracking experience. Nevertheless, there are things you can do to prepare yourself for this momentous shopping experience so help ease your nerves and ensure that the ring you choose is absolutely perfect.
- Take note of her favorite diamond shapes. This may not always be doable if the discussion of rings hasn’t come up. Not to worry! Many times, just knowing her best (which you do, of course!) can help you decide what shape to choose. For example, if she has more minimalistic or classic style, you may opt for a round, oval or emerald-cut diamond. If she loves square shapes, you may choose a princess, radiant or cushion cut diamond. Or, if she loves being different and having something no one else has, you can ask to see other cuts, or maybe even different colors!
- In addition to her favorite diamond shape, take note of the gold color she tends to wear, if she wears other jewelry. While most engagement rings are white gold or platinum, many are now asking for yellow gold or rose gold to complement their necklaces and bracelets, and other jewelry.
- Have a budget range in mind. Did you know that – contrary to popular belief – you don’t actually need to spend 3 months salary on your engagement ring? When you shop wholesale diamonds, you can save more than shopping retail, and that means more money in your pocket to begin your new married life together!
The good news is, even if you don’t have the answers to any of these, the friendly diamond professionals at House of Diamonds Hawaii will work with you every step of the way to make sure you find the right diamond and the right setting all at the best price.
