Choosing The Gemstone

When you are shopping for the perfect ring, you will find that you have tons of different stones to choose from. You may not know exactly what your girlfriend’s tastes are when it comes to this matter. However, you should know if she is a conventional thinker or more on the unique side. With that being said, when it comes to conventional, you really cannot get more conventional than a center diamond stone. Sapphire is another popular choice as well, but if you girlfriend is a bit more on the unconventional side, you might want to seek out something a bit different.

What About The Gemstone Shape?

Now, that you know exactly what type of gemstone you want, you are going to have to decide on the gemstone shape. In fact, you might not even be aware of the fact that diamonds can actually be cut into 10 different shapes. Round is by one of the most common choices, but due to the popularity of this cut they are much more expensive. When shopping for engagement rings two other, less pricy options that you might want to consider are the princess cut (square) and the cushion cut (features soft tapered edges).

Selecting A Type Of Metal

Another important decision that you are going to have to make is the type of metal that you want or the band. You will find that the most common choices for a ring are platinum, rose gold, yellow gold, and white gold. White gold and platinum are extremely similar when it comes to looks. In fact, if you put the two side by side it will be hard for the normal individual to tell the difference. However, you should keep in mind that platinum is much more durable and cost right around 50 percent more than white gold.

Remember To Set A Budget

Shopping for a wedding ring is by no means an inexpensive or easy task. However, you should know that there is no written rule as to how much money you should spend on your investment. Just make sure that it is an amount that you are totally comfortable with. With that being said, you should keep in mind that there is always layaway options and financing available in the event that you don’t have enough money to pay for the ring up front.
