4 Tips to determine if a Diamond Engagement Ring is the Right Choice for You

You’ve found an engagement ring you absolutely adore and now you’re dropping hints to your future hubby, leaving Pinterest “accidentally” open for him to see. But once you get past all the glam and glitter, you have to ask yourself whether the ring you fell in love with is the right choice for you. Choosing the right engagement ring goes beyond its look. You also have to take into account how often you are going to have to take it off, how durable it is, and other factors. If you plan to never take it off like most women, you have to make sure your daily activities won’t harm the ring in any way.

Buying an engagement ring is truly romantic, but it’s also one of the most expensive purchases you’re ever going to make. That said, you should reconsider whether an engagement ring you have been eyeing is right for you. In this article, we give you 4 practical tips to determine that.

Consider Your Lifestyle

The engagement ring is a piece of jewelry you are going to be wearing every day for the rest of your life. If your life is full of activities that may harm your ring, you should consider if it’s the right choice for you. The halo or prong settings might look wonderful, but the small diamonds on the halo can get chipped and the prong can get loose and you might lose your diamond as a result. However, the prong rings are the easiest to clean, which is handy if you’re into gardening. Similarly, if you have a sensitive skin, you should consider platinum instead of gold.

Consider Your Work

Apart from being a symbol of love, the engagement ring is a symbol of style as well. Therefore, consider if you want to be wearing a flashy engagement ring if your work demands a little more subtlety. Also, if you’re a dentist or a senior caregiver, you don’t want a ring with sharp edges that could harm your patients. On the other hand, if you work in finance or business, you may benefit from a lush diamond ring.

How Will the Ring Compliment Your Fingers?

One thing future brides often neglect to take into account is how the ring they choose will look on their fingers. Different finger types are flattered by different ring setting, and getting the same ring for a long, wide or short finger is a mistake. You should consider the different ring styles and see which ones look best for you. Generally, women with long fingers can rock out any style, while girls with short fingers should get a ring that can make them appear longer like oval or pear with a thin metal band.

Does the Ring Fit Your Style?

This is often the first thing girls look for in a ring, but you can never be too thoughtful about your style. You have to consider how the ring will look with other pieces of jewelry you often wear. So if you have a lot of yellow gold pieces, go for a golden ring. If you prefer silver, go for white gold or platinum. You also have to consider your wardrobe. Is it formal and professional or casual? Are you inspired by 70’s fashion or do you only follow current trends. Therefore, would your outfit look complete with a vintage or a modern, flashy ring?
