A diamond engagement ring is a symbol of affection, commitment and sustaining love. Purchasing the perfect engagement ring might seem overwhelming at first, but have no fear – James Allen makes designing your own engagement ring online easy, fun and affordable!
Would she like the classic solitaire, or does she prefer vintage style, halo, pave, or even the modern tension engagement ring? - with so many types of engagement rings to choose from, this can be tricky to answer. Let's assume you have no clue what type of engagement ring to get... and work from that point:
Ask her: In today's modern world, many women prefer choosing for themselves what they want. So, if your girlfriend is of this mind, you can simply ask her.
Ask her friends: She has probably talked about the perfect engagement ring with her friends many times over, so why not benefit from their knowledge? They will be eager to help… and they will think it is romantic of you to ask.
Investigate: Look around and you'll see clues everywhere. Pay attention to the jewelry she currently wears. Look through her magazines and see if she left any hints behind. Notice how she reacts to different jewelry when you walk past jewelry stores or counters. Women love to provide men with a trail of breadcru-mbs to their heart.
Now that you know more or less what type of ring she may want, set aside a budget. This way you can eliminate diamond engagement rings that are out of your budget and focus on rings you can comfortably afford. The good news is that James Allen sells only high quality certified diamond engagement rings - each with a grading certificate - for considerably less than you would in a jewelry store. This means your budget stretches far, and you can get a great ring for less. At James Allen, you can design your own engagement ring exactly the way you want it.
