He popped the question; you said, “Yes”, and now you’re engaged – congratulations are in order. Getting engaged is one of the most exciting days of your life – a day that you’ll always remember. While the proposal was beautiful, the one thing that was missing may have been a ring. Traditionally, before proposing he would have picked out a ring, but today that’s not always the case. Many men prefer to wait and ring shop with their wife-to-be, to ensure that the ring is perfect.

If your fiancè has opted not to pick a ring, don’t stress about it. He wants to give you the chance to select a ring that you love, something that you should be happy about. (So many women hate their engagement rings, think yourself lucky that you have the chance to choose.)

You might be super excited to select a ring, but before you head off to the jewelers, there are a few things that you need to know. Trust us, if you want to get your ring shopping right, this advice is important to take note of.

Ask him how much you have to spend

First things first, talk to your fiancè about how much you can spend on your ring. The chances are that he’s been saving for a while, so he’ll most probably give you a big number to work with. Don’t be embarrassed to ask him, as if you don’t, things could get awkward while you’re ring shopping.

Sit down and chat about ring shopping with him and subtly bring up how much you’re able to spend. It’s definitely best to know before hand so that you can plan accordingly and know what price range to look at when you shop.

Discuss the ring style together

Before you tell him the type of ring that you’d like, ask him what he imagined you’d want. Even though he didn’t pick a ring out for you, when choosing your ring it’s important to take his likes and dislikes into account. You don’t have to opt for a ring of his choice, but it’s nice to know the type of designs he likes.

Browse different designs

Spend some time having a look at various ring styles and designs. You may already have an idea of the type of ring you would like, or you may not, but either way, it’s important to have a look at the different styles.

Look at both contemporary and traditional designs, in a range of different metals to get an idea of the styles that you like. It’s also important to do a little research into the types of diamonds that are best to use.

Many people don’t realize it, but when it comes to diamonds, they’re not all equal. If you want a stone that’s free of flaws, it’s important to be choosy about where you get the diamond from. For a guide to picking the best diamonds, check out YourDiamondGuru.com.

Try on different designs

Even if you think you’ve found a design that you love, it’s still a good idea to try on a few different ones. While you might think that one ring style is perfect, you may find another one that suits you better. Before settling on a design, visit your jewelers and try on a few different designs, to get an idea of the style that you love most.

So there you have it, everything that you need to know about picking your own engagement ring.
