Here is a tip for you to find out the ring size of your girl without asking her about it. The best way is to try getting aye of her ring while you visit her home or ever better to ask your mom-in-law to get her ring and inform her about your surprise. Surely your mom-in-law would be more than happy to maintain this secret until the time you break it with a surprise. Or you can ask for her ring while you are talking casually and wear it in your fingers to see the size- this will surely give an idea of her size. What next? Go to a good jewel shop and start selecting the best custom made designer engagement ring for her.
Before purchasing your perfect engagement ring you must consider taste and preferences of your lady. Here are few points which will help you in finding the perfect engagement ring.
The round shapes are the most common wedding ring alternatives. Not all wedding ring alternatives are expensive though. Diamond gemstone depends on the clarity and the shape or cuts of the diamond gemstone. It also depends on how big is the gemstone. They scale that in carats.
Cut is easily the most confusing of the 4 C’s. Many first-time buyers mistake it for the shape of the stone. But the cut is actually determined by the lapidary, who chooses a style that suits the diamond. Princess, Marquis, and Pear are the most common cuts. The shape, on the other hand, can be round, rectangular, or oval.
The quality of other materials matters as well. As a rule, if a diamond is set in 10K gold, it is probably lower quality. Higher karat gold tends to get better quality diamonds. Not always, but often enough for a decent rule of thumb. Similarly, platinum settings generally have better diamonds in them.
In terms of wedding bands and diamond engagement rings, platinum continues to be one of the most popular and sought-after choices. Because it is a rare precious metal, you can expect to pay more for it than you would for a gold ring. If you love the look but cannot afford the “real deal,” 18k white gold is always a good alternative. Just remember that gold scratches more easily since it is a softer metal. Those who plan on wearing their wedding bands daily and who are constantly using their hands, should save up the extra money for platinum bands. Buying a platinum band may be expensive, but it will save you the heartache caused by a damaged ring.
Jewelers often try to push preset diamond engagement rings, since they are more expensive. Because there are dozens of custom settings to choose from, most men simply throw in the towel and relent at this point. But in our humble opinion, that is a mistake. Not only are preset rings more expensive, but finding the right setting isn’t nearly as hard as it seems. Sure, there are prong, tension, bezel, flush, cluster, channel, and invisible settings from which to choose. But only a few of them are actually popular. Prong is probably the most sought after setting, since it allows more light to enter the stone.
Now, let’s come back to the above question – how can you be creative in proposing your girl. First of all, it is important to understand her body language. Body language speaks louder than words. If your girlfriend has constant eye contact with you, understand that she is interested in you and your talk.
