Buying An Engagement Ring

You found 'the one', and now you just need to find an engagement ring that will be adored for the rest of your lives. No pressure. Our Guys Guide to buying an Engagement Ring gives practical, manly advice on buying the right ring for that epic proposal.  

ESTABLISH YOUR BUDGET

You don't have to spend two months' salary, spend more or spend less, just make sure you've got a figure in mind when you go.

RESEARCH HER STYLE

Look at the jewellery your loved one wears on a daily basis, does she wear intricate silver earrings or bold gold statement necklaces? Take  note of her style and keep in mind when you go shopping.

SAME-SEX? SAME STORY

Does he wear much in the line of jewellery? When he does it simple or go for more decorative pieces. Do you want to have matching rings, then you'll have to consider blending both your styles.

PLAN AHEAD

Don't forget these things take time. You may need to save up, and it could take several weeks to your jewellers to set the stone, do any engraving or custom design tour ring.

Pick Your Metal

If you've done your research, you'll know the kind of metal your loved one would prefer. There are so many options from gold, white or rose gold, to platinum and even titanium.

Pick The setting

Selecting the style of an engagement ring might be the most daunting part. As a starting point, consider your significant other's dressing style, choice of accessories which might prove to be helpful to understand what kind of ring they might prefer. 

Pay attention to any hints your partner may drop at different points of time. There's a fair chance that their interests would be saved
