Your engagement ring is the most precious piece of jewellery you will own in your lifetime. Not precious because of its price or metal or rock, but precious because it’s what marks the beginning of your union with the person you love the most in life. That’s why you have to put in much thought and care to select your engagement ring. If you are receiving signals of a proposal coming your way, here are some tips that would help you go through the process smoothly.
If your boyfriend has already told you he’s going to propose and he wants you to choose the ring, don’t feel awkward. It’s a good thing to follow traditions, but traditions are not set in stone. Sometimes, breaking away from traditions is the most practical and sensible thing to do. Here’s a bit of statistics to help you: 62% of couples shop for their engagement ring together these days.
If you think you should have someone close to you (such as your sister or best friend) help your boyfriend pick the ring, don’t hesitate. She will know your tastes well. She will steer the process of ring selection more towards your preference. If you have a particular style in mind, tell her about it before she goes to the store. She’ll take care of the rest.
If you think you don’t want to put a huge monetary burden on your boyfriend, consider a pre-owned engagement ring. Pre-owned engagement rings, are available at a reduced price than new engagement rings. Browse pre-owned rings online and you’ll know that these rings are actually great. Many people buy pre-owned rings for their engagement and even wedding. These rings don’t come with some bad juju.
Pre-owned engagement rings are actually a healthier option than ordering a custom ring because they don’t damage the environment through mining. Plus, the rock on them is often bigger than what you’ll find on a brand new ring. So, you get: a) greater value for money than a new ring and b) lesser damage to the environment than a new, custom-made ring.
