5 things we want you to know before buying your engagement ring
August 9, 2018
Finding the right engagement rings in Sydney for your loved one may not be an easy task. With the wide range of styles, gemstones and designs to choose from it’s always important to have a few things in mind before you make the big decision. After visiting numerous jewellers in Sydney, you may have settled for what you think is the right one but before you make your final choice, there are a few things you should consider. If you’re having any doubts about the process or your final choice, here are five small things that could make a big difference.
Know your budget
Choosing your budget is essential and it can be a little difficult to decide what the right number may be. There are plenty of old-fashioned guidelines surrounding engagement ring budgets, but you shouldn’t feel any pressure to stick to any obsolete traditions. Don’t let yourself get pushed beyond your price range and remember that you could have the chance to upgrade the ring in the future.
Learn about the 4Cs
To ensure that you get the best diamond engagement ring for your budget, it’s important to understand how each of the 4Cs – carat weight, clarity, colour and cut – impact the appearance of your diamond and the price. Depending on diamond shape, cut and setting, you may be able to save on carat weight or colour. With the help of your jeweller or a little research before you start looking, you could find the perfect engagement ring in Australia for the perfect price.
Look at your partner’s style
Remember that she will wear this ring every day for the rest of her life. Keep an eye on the kinds of jewellery she wears and what she catches her eye in store or online. Making the choice between traditional, modern and vintage style rings is important and if you’re choosing the design without her help, consider talking to her friends or family to get a second opinion.
Consider their lifestyle
Diamonds may be the hardest gemstone, but in the wrong setting they can be vulnerable to damage. Some elements are more durable than others and must be considered if your partner is very active or works in a hands-on environment. Talk to your jeweller about what settings will best protect your diamond and secure the gemstone in place regardless of activity.
Always shop around
Never settle for the first good ring you find. It’s important to assess all your options to ensure you’re found what you want for the best value. If you find the right jeweller, you will be looked after for a lifetime. Some offer complementary cleaning and will ensure that your ring is taken care of for years to come. Make sure you discuss insurance and warranty and understand the conditions for the future.
