Tips When Shopping for a Quality Engagement Ring

You’ve found the special lady you want to spend the rest of your life with and you know in your heart it’s time to pop the question. The only thing you’ve left to do is find the perfect engagement ring and you want a ring just as special and perfect as she is. You’ve come to the right place. At Aura Diamonds we pride ourselves on helping our customers find the engagement ring of their dreams!

Choosing an engagement ring can be overwhelming at first. With all the options of styles, settings, and of course the diamond itself, it’s easy to feel bogged down and confused on where to start! But rest assured, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve put together a short guide to shopping for a quality engagement ring.

Three things determine your prefect diamond engagement ring.

Ring Style: You know her well and you know her style and that’s a good starting point. Is she a vintage, modern, or classically traditional woman?

Vintage styles bring to mind antiques and heirlooms. They’re old-fashioned but have become trendy recently. They’re complimentary to a lady whose style is romantic, boho-chic, or vintage.

Modern: Modern engagement ring styles are bold and usually large. Split-spank setting aren’t an uncommon feature of these diamond engagement rings. Modern engagement rings are complementary to a lady with a bold sense of style and self. She’s the one who’s not afraid to try new trends and mix-match her favorites to put together a unique outfit that’s all her own.

Classic: Classic engagement rings are the style most people are familiar with. With a single diamond or perhaps a trio in a channel setting they’re by far a classic favorite of brides-to-be. They’re complimentary with any style and personality. Though, they do appeal to those with old-fashioned romantic charm.

The Diamond: This is where you need the 4Cs of diamonds. Decide on the cut, carat, clarity, and color. These are the four things that will not only affect your budget, but also how your diamond looks on her hand. The diamond is the heart of any engagement ring so learning about diamond types ahead of time will help you in the long run.

Your Budget: There’s no need to break the bank when finding the perfect ring. Deciding how much you want to invest ahead of time before you ever start shopping. This will ensure you’re happy with the ring and don’t find yourself in a tight spot later. Also consider such details as future cleanings, maintenance, and insurance if you desire it.
