Finding the perfect engagement ring to express
your love for that special person in your life
can be a daunting task. Here are a few tips
we have put together that you may find helpful
to make the diamond ring search easier.
Choosing the Right Metal for the Engagement Ring
The choice of metal for your engagement ring will have lasting
value because it is seen every time you look at your ring.
Platinum and gold are both beautiful, but have distinct differences
beyond just the price. Gold is the most common metal used
in jewelry, and unlike platinum, is easy to polish and repair.
Neither platinum nor gold will tarnish, but platinum rings
and jewelry is much more resistant to damage than gold jewelry.
Platinum is more rare than gold and therefore more expensive.
When choosing an engagement ring remember to match the metal
color with any existing jewelry she may already own. This
will allow her to wear the ring or diamond jewelry more often
and co-ordinate it with other pieces. Remember that no matter
what ring or diamond jewelry you purchase from Novori, we
back you purchase with a 30 day return policy just in case
you need it.
How Much Should I Spend on my Engagement Ring?
When it comes to diamond engagement rings, certainly the
'wow' factor is important, but you should not spend more
than you are comfortable with. A budget of two or three
months salary is a common guideline but is not always adhered
to. The bottom line is that there are no set rules on how
much you should spend on an engagement ring.
Never start thinking that the ring you purchase somehow
determines that degree of your love. That will only set you
up to make a poor purchasing decision. The diamond engagement
ring you purchase is an expression of your love and not a
measure of it.
It is best to set yourself a budget for your engagement ring
purchase and then try to stay within the budget. We can assist
you with finding beautiful engagement ring setting and certified
diamond within almost any budget. Here are some . Call us and we will be pleased
to assist you.
What Size of Diamond Should I Purchase?
There is no right answer but there are several guidelines
you can use to ensure that the ring choose will be
perfect for her. Just keep in mind that you want a ring that
she will be proud of, confidently show to all her friends
and family and treasure for the rest of her life. Always
keep quality and value in mind along with your budget. Our
diamond experts can help you keep to your budget. Just call
us for help.
First, you should consider her expectations If your
fiancée has said to you "I'm just waiting for that
1 carat rock to land on my finger!" you may have to honor
that expectation and ensure your diamond choice is at least
1 carat. If she has told you to find the best diamond just
for her, you may be able to look for a smaller, higher quality
diamond. Ask her some innocent questions on her jewelry tastes
and listen for her answers. Although it has not been scientifically
proven, many women desire at least a 1 carat diamond ring.
You can anytime.
Buying an Engagement Ring - The Element of Surprise
Obviously the only way to know for sure that you have found
the perfect engagement ring would be to have shopped together
with your loved one. Unfortunately, this can take away from
the surprise. Remember that it is not uncommon to discuss
engagement ring preferences with your partner. If you do
want to make it a complete surprise, you will need to do
1) Speak with one of your partners closest friends or
family members (her sister or mother will likely be helpful)
for hints on what types of styles she prefers to wear.
2) What color of jewelry does your partner normally wear?
If she typically wears yellow gold earrings or necklaces,
then she may prefer a yellow gold engagement ring as
well. Keep in mind popular fashion these days are platinum
or white gold engagement ring settings.
3) Flip through a catalogue and land (by happenstance
of course) on the jewelry rings section. Make some comment
about some different jewelry styles you see in the catalogue
and hope your partner will share some of her preferences
How Can I Find My Partners Ring Size?
We can help determining an accurate ring size by providing
you a free ring sizer. Just request it from our customer
service department online or by phone. It is also helpful
if you are able to get the ring finger sized by a jeweler
as you are casually shopping together.
If you can't wait for the ring sizer (which will take 4-5 days to ship) or want to surprise your partner, you will need to get your hands on one of your partners' rings.
How can I find her ring size? Measure
the ring size using the option #2 sizing method found at
our ring sizing page. Just
remember these are not foolproof methods and should be measured
by a jeweler if possible.
Another option is to have one of her current, well fitting
rings measured at a local jeweler. This will give you an
opportunity to see how much you will save by ordering your
diamond ring online from Novori. We know that on average
you will save 30% to 60% because of our low overhead and
excellent pricing on certified diamonds, engagement rings
and diamond jewelry.
