So, you’re in love and you want to get married. That’s great news! Congratulations! Finding your special someone is an amazing experience. Don’t spoil your joy by getting stressed out shopping for an engagement ring. The process doesn’t have to be complicated! All you need to do to keep things simple is answer these three questions:
What Type of Engagement Ring Does Your Sweetheart Want?
Bridal jewelry gets worn. Your sweetheart likely will be wearing the engagement ring regularly throughout your engagement, and beyond. For that reason, you want to be sure that you choose an engagement ring she really likes and will enjoy wearing. Finding out what type of engagement ring your sweetheart likes best can be a very straightforward process or some investigation may be required. A lot of this depends on your relationship: we see many couples shopping for engagement rings together. It’s best to try this in a low-pressure environment, when you don’t have to worry about a salesperson urging you to buy before you’re ready. If that’s not right for your relationship, listen to your sweetheart’s hints about ring design, and enlist her friends and family to help you. They may point you to her social media page – many brides-to-be collect images of engagement ring designs they like on Pinterest.
When Are You Planning on Popping The Question?
The holiday season in Manhattan is magical, and many local couples get engaged during a four-week period that spans the last two weeks in December and the first two weeks in January. Knowing when you plan to propose can impact your engagement ring choices. Beginning the process of shopping for an
engagement ring well in advance of your proposal date ensures that you can take your time making every detail perfect. Of course, it is possible to have a fully custom, handmade engagement ring made for you in as little as two weeks. Have a shorter timeline than that? The Ever & Ever Collection by Stuller features gorgeous customizable diamond engagement rings that are available on a very accelerated timeline – sometimes as little as one business day!
Where are You Going to Get Your Engagement Ring?
Pick a jeweler who has been in business for quite a while. Awards and recognition let you know how the community feels about the way this jeweler conducts themselves; professional membership associations are a good indication you’ve found a jeweler committed to doing things the right way.
You want to choose a jeweler who has a good selection of engagement rings and diamonds in stock. If you’re searching for a very specific diamond, it’s best to choose a jeweler who is well connected in the diamond industry: this can streamline the entire process and save you money. Finally, do yourself a favor and visit a Manhattan fine jeweler’s private showroom – alone or with your sweetheart – before you choose an engagement ring. The opportunity to have skilled jewelry professionals show you a variety of diamonds and mountings selected to meet your needs can be eye opening and help you make a truly informed decision.
