DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER...AND SO IS LOVE!
The custom of giving or exchanging engagement rings varies from place to place
and from person to person. Some girls even go along with their boyfriends to
select the ring. But romantic women have a tendency to fall in love with gifts
from their lovers, so the ideal option is for you to present the ring to your
girlfriend when you proposes to her. It should be the most precious and
unforgettable moment of her life - the moment when you are promising to love her
and take care of her eternally. The timing must be perfect; the place must be
perfect; the ambience must be perfect; and the ring must be truly exceptional!
It should be everything she has ever wanted in an engagement ring - all her
dreams come true. It should melt her heart because, once she accepts it, you
will both start planning for your wedding, your honeymoon, your family and your
future. Since the ring symbolizes everything you feel for her, make sure she
loves the ring as much as you want her to love you. Stones like aquamarine,
sapphires, emeralds, topaz, tourmaline, etc. are becoming trendy choices for
engagement rings. But, unless you're sure your girlfriend doesn't like diamonds,
go for diamonds - women just love that white fire!
The Perfect Diamond Engagement Ring
So how do you go about finding this perfect
diamond engagement rings ? First of
all you should become familiar with your special woman's taste in jewelry. Since
you intend to surprise her (although she may have been expecting it) you have to
be discreet in searching her heart for that special ring of her desire. You can
get a lot of advice and help, but the best way is to use your own heart - along
with the following guidelines! There are three fundamental aspects to take into
consideration when selecting a diamond ring: the stone, the metal for the band,
and the design and setting.
Choosing The Right Stone
The stone is the first thing your girlfriend will be attracted to, so it better
be something truly special and impressive. Sparkle is far more important than
size. You don't have to spend more than you can afford but don't be cheap! Once
you give her the ring, your fiancée will be waving her hands all over the place
- especially before her family and friends. She wants to show off the ring, to
let them see the size and sparkle and hear their "oohs" and "aahs". She wants to
hear them ask, "From where did he buy it?" and "How much did it cost?" So don't
buy a ring that she will be ashamed to display in public. You don't have to
waste your money and make her think you are a spendthrift. Just get her an
affordable dazzler from a reputed jewelry store. Use your heart and your head in
deciding on the cost. And don't forget to bargain for a reduction in price.
It is not too difficult to figure out how diamonds are weighed and priced.
Diamonds are weighed (or measured) in carats, grains and points. 4 grains make a
carat and 25 points make a grain - i.e. 1 carat = 4 grains = 100 points. The
cost per carat is calculated something like this: if a 0.5-carat diamond costs
$X, a 1-carat diamond will cost about $3.5X, and a 1.5-carat diamond will cost
around $6X. While flaws reduce light reflection and sparkle in the diamond,
clarity increases both. Look for a stone that really flashes white fire. The cut
determines the brilliance in a diamond, and sparkle is what diamonds are about.
A well-cut diamond will produce a dazzling effect. The best diamonds have no
color - just a brilliant white light blazing out. You can even go for a colored
diamond, but they can be fairly expensive. Though white is the traditional
choice, you should also take your girlfriend's taste (and your financial
status!) into consideration.
Choosing The Right Metal
Most women prefer platinum, gold or white gold for the band. The choice
generally narrows down to 18k or 14k yellow, white or rose gold. Make a careful
study of your girlfriend's jewelry and you will know what she likes. If you can
afford it (and she likes it) go for platinum. That's something she'll really
Choosing The Right Setting And Design
The setting and design should be exquisite as well as sensible. Women may be
more romantic than men, but they are generally more practical as well. You must
know what suits your girlfriends taste and lifestyle best. There are four points
to be taken into consideration in selecting the design: it should be
uncomplicated and practical, it will be worn daily and must be suitable for
rough use, it should hold the stone (or stones) firmly and securely, and finally
it should look really grand and make her feel really great!
Now that you have selected the ideal stone, her favorite metal, a fascinating
design and the perfect setting for the diamond, you have to propose to the woman
of your dreams and offer her this beautiful token of your love for her. It
should be an absolutely priceless and eternal moment, an emotionally charged
event that fills her with unimaginable joy and a love that she has never
experienced before. Take every care to ensure that all the arrangements and the
environment are ideally suited to her special tastes. And don't forget to kiss
her when she accepts the ring and you!
A Happy Ending
So now you have it all. If you follow the above advice, every time your woman
sees the stone on her finger she will remember the moment you proposed to her
and the wonderful emotions she experienced. It is better to get a smaller stone
with good clarity, cut and color than a larger stone with no glitter. Spend your
money wisely. Get advice and help from her girlfriends and also from married
friends - but make sure they keep it a secret. Buy her that diamond engagement
ring she will love forever and her heart will be yours forever.
