Shopping Dos and Don’ts for Engagement Ring

Are you celebrating a recent proposal? Has your boyfriend been hinting at the idea of ring shopping? We at Royal Design Fine Jewelry in Atlanta, Georgia provide the world’s most stunning and exquisite diamonds and gemstone accessories, including one of a kind engagement rings and wedding bands. If you’re thinking about shopping for your engagement ring with your groom-to-be by your side, here are a few helpful hints that will help you get the ring of your dreams while making the day go as smoothly as possible. 

Do Openly Discuss Your Desires 

Keep in mind that your soon to be husband can’t read your mind. The process of choosing a ring and planning a proposal can be intimidating and stressful for men. While it may seem unromantic to discuss the specifics of what kind of ring you want, doing so will help ease his worry. By casually showing him pictures or telling him what your favorite designs are, he will know that you are open to the idea of marriage, and he will already have a basic understanding of what style of ring to purchase. If you know you want to pick the ring out yourself, let him know so he can plan accordingly. 

Do Create an Inspiration Board or Notebook

Visual planning can be very helpful. There are many beautiful designs available on the market today, and the process of making a final decision can be a little overwhelming. Having a digital inspiration board or printed notebook of images can help remind yourself of the styles that really speak to your unique personality. 

Do Try and Make the Day Memorable 

If you do plan on shopping for rings together, don’t make it stressful. You will remember this day for the rest of your lives, so make it count. Try to limit the number of stores you visit so you aren’t driving all over town, spending half of the day sitting in traffic. Make the trip fun and relaxing by including a romantic lunch or follow up the shopping experience with an exciting date night. 

Don’t Be Completely Inflexible 

While you may have fallen in love with Katherine Schwarzenegger’s dazzling oval cut diamond, your True Love may not have the same budget as Chris Pratt. However, knowing that you want an oval cut diamond solitaire can make it easier to find a ring that will suit the needs of you and your future husband. Many couples will go shopping for a ring, with very specific conditions about the carat weight, clarity and cut of the diamond, and miss out on great opportunities because they remain uncompromising during the decision making process. 

Don’t Settle Either

With that said, you don’t want to just settle for anything either. You will be wearing the ring for many decades to come, so you’ll want to invest in a design that you’ll wear with pride every day. In order to get the perfect ring to match your unique style, you might need to create a custom design, so make sure to visit an experienced jeweler who can provide such a service.
