Wedding bells are in your future, which means you have a lot on your plate. Whether you are preparing to buy an engagement ring, wedding ring or both, now is the time to start researching. When it comes to something this important you don’t wait for the last minute. Every jewelry store claims to have a designer diamond wedding rings. You can find jewelers on the way out of your grocery store, downtown and in shopping malls all over America, but very few have the certified diamonds and cuts that are truly considered designer diamond wedding rings. The last thing you want to do is buy a wedding ring on a whim or without giving the purchase the proper consideration. So how do you know when you’ve found the right ring?
Shopping For The Perfect Ring
Some men loathe shopping. They treat it like marines do a special ops machine: they are in and out of the store in less than ten minutes. Typically, purchasing a wedding ring will not be so easy; however, there are ways you can cut down on the time. Depending on how involved your spouse is on the process, you can get their opinion for starters. If it’s an engagement ring, you may have to get a little creative, but odds are they already have some idea of what you’re up to and will hopefully be a good sport and play along. Once you have what cut of diamond you are looking for or at least an idea of what style your spouse likes, it’s time to start doing research online. Asking friends and family is a great place to start. Doing some reconnaissance work on the jewelry stores in your area is smart too, just be careful about getting sold on a “great deal.” Antique jewelry is becoming more popular and could save you some money but is also something you would need to be absolutely positive your spouse would like. Almost every women in America wouldn’t be disappointed if you presented any of the designer diamond rings being sold today, an antique ring could be disappointing.
Buying The Perfect Ring
While you’re getting a feel for what’s out there and how much it costs, you should be judging the store and its employees. Are they pushy? Helpful? Knowledgeable? Some would say how comfortable you are with a jeweler is almost as important as the inventory. You will be much happier buying a ring from a knowledgeable and helpful jeweler who takes an interest in you and your wedding than you would from a store that has a great deal – you will have better luck bringing it back if it turns out to not be the perfect fit, too. Having a good idea of what you are looking for helps this process, but having an open mind and willing to learn will help tremendously in selecting the right jeweler and ring for this special occasion.
