A lady will always wear what she loves. If you are a traditionalist and not shopping together for the engagement ring you need to pay attention to detail to what she wears.
Tip: Ask her to sum her style up in one of these five styles:
Consider the Metal
The Focal Point
Know the 4C’s of diamonds.
If you are not opting for a diamond and rather a semi precious stone, learn about the characteristics of the specific stone. For example a tanzanite, is a soft stone. Perhaps rather opt for an Iolite etc.
A professional jeweller will also educate you on all the aspects of designing and manufacturing. It is important to know what exactly you are buying.
Choose a jeweller
It is important to choose and stay with one jeweller. A ring is more than just a diamond and metal. Spend time with the jeweller that he/she can learn the way you think and what type of style you like. This will create a depth to the design.
Choose the Best
It is important when manufacturing a ring to know that the jeweller understands what you want. To draw a sketch on paper is in the past. 3D designs is not just all for show. This is done so that you exactly know what the end product will look like and if there’s any changes to be made before the ring is manufactured.
