Engagement Ring Shopping 101
Choosing the perfect engagement ring requires more than just pricing and looks – the cut, design and stone is also important considerations. We at Raymond Lee Jewelers aim to satisfy and please all our customers. We will work with you until you get the results you want.
Finding the right stone
When you have found that perfect woman only the perfect stone will do. Keep in mind that the ring must be special, something she can show her children and grandchildren, a precious item to display to her friends and parents – a token of your love for her. Decide whether you want to choose the ring alone as a surprise to her, or have her along to share the bond. Diamonds are still one of the most popular stones around. Whether you go traditional, or modern, it may be a good idea for the cut you choose to correspond with your wedding theme.
Stay within your budget
Many men make the mistake of choosing a ring without any thought or care behind it. Being realistic about your budget doesn’t mean you have to choose a stone so unpretentious that it takes a microscope to see it! The lady of your life deserves some gloss. Be aware that traditional metals are costly as are gemstones. The engagement ring you choose should depict the art and style that suits you and your fiancé.
A ring to suit your style
The make-up of the ring you choose is a reflection of who you are. The materials that it is composed of determine the cost as long-wearing elements have a longer lifespan and are more expensive. Some people opt for everyday rings with precious metal settings. Repurposed materials can be used from a family heirloom, recreated into a modern design and still be stylish and practical for everyday wear.
Getting a good deal
Quality plus thrift added with style equals a good deal for you. Getting a bargain on a ring really isn’t as difficult as you may think. If you were to get a ring on sale, ask your jewelers to make a few simple changes so that the design will be unique, you could possibly save a bundle. If you already have a ring on hand and you want your jeweler to add special features to it – for a practical fee – you will get a prime deal and still have an authentic design to show for it.
