Engagement Ring:

Engagement rings and their prominence in our lives have an untold magnitude. How to choose an engagement ring it is the choicest blessing that both the girl and the guy secretly and coyly crave for. And don’t presume it as an over-estimation or exaggeration. Just sit back withdrawn and grapple your heart. If even a faint smile stretches across your lips, you know I am not an expression wrong! So here we provide you with some tips on how to choose an engagement ring.

To keep your mystifying urge remains ever special to you, here are a few tips to consider while purchasing your engagement rings:

1) Settle on a budget:

Yes….while love is the emotional parameter to suffice all; monetary ability is the practical call. So, as I always say first things first, so decide your budget before everything else on how to choose an engagement ring.

Ideally, there’s a saying that one-tenth of your wedding budget should be spent in buying your wedding ring.

2) Ring size:

Imagine everything is perfect, the setting, the ambiance, the light, the dress, the smiles and then you bow down on your knees, take her hand in yours, clasp her finger, take the ring closer and ……………urghhhhhhhhhh…………it is a misfit!!! Okay! Enough to make you feel the gravity of the predicament.

So, let not your surprise leave you in shock instead. So carefully, note down the girth of the ring finger and get a size a little larger than the actual size. Remember engagement rings are usually meant to be worn through all seasons of weather and life. Hope! You get that! how to choose an engagement ring.

3) The metal of the band:

The usual Indian choices for metal are either gold or silver or platinum. But breaking the stereotype for engagement rings you can also go for red gold or white gold.

White gold is gold alloyed with a white metal like palladium, manganese but usually Rhodium. Rhodium wears over time but some good jewelers replace it free of cost.

Red Gold is an alloy of gold and copper. Trust me it looks real sport and for people like me who abhor yellow gold, this is a blissful alternative. Also, trending is bicolor rings.

 4)  Gemstone and setting:

The 4 C’s of gemstone- carat, color, cut and clarity all depends on the 5th C – Cost is one of the important factors on how to choose engagement rings. But a little research and negotiation should never be missed. A tip: find out if your partner likes the usual diamond or not. There is always a possibility of an exception like me. 😛

Talking of the setting, it is one very important criteria while choosing the gemstone. Your partner’s lifestyle should not tamper it. If your partner is an outgoing individual like a sportsperson or an adventure seeker, then the setting should be shallow and not risen. Also, the pattern recommended is the ones not having very intricate carvings otherwise it would cause dirt to settle and mar its natural shine.  Also, the risk of the stone wearing away is high.

5) Choice of jeweler:

Best piece of advice on how to choose engagement rings I can give here is to seek the advice of your already wedded friends or closed ones. Go for a reliable trustworthy jeweler and preferably in a not so showy shop. Keep it low because you know all the extravaganza is at your cost. Your jeweler should sell you hallmarked jewelry and please for the Divine’s sake do not ignore the bill. Pay a bit extra for taxes but make sure the ring is forever yours. God forbid, in the case of legal infringements you will not like to part with your wedding ring.

Hey you fella, where do you go…remember to order and collect your ring in advance. Who would like the fuss on your day? Happy Engagement!!

    The Good:

    The points were put down in bullet points and small paragraphs with comfortable spacing overall, which helps to prevent boredom from the readers and ensures that they are not overwhelmed when confronted by walls of text.

    The advice was useful and concise, and consisted of more than general facts. I thought the points regarding gemstone types, ring trends and choice of jewelers were smartly and thoughtfully written.

    The Bad:

    There is an excessive use of ellipses (…) While they should be used to give the content more personality, when used excessively it makes the content come across as unprofessional and shabby.
    I also saw a few wrongly placed semicolons and occasional phrasing errors. While it may seem like I am nitpicking, grammar and presentation go a long way in improving article quality.

    I noticed the are several cumbersome and large words in the first paragraph, while the latter paragraphs and points were much more simply written. This creates a feeling of unevenness. One should either keep it simple or complexly written throughout. Consistency is key.

    Just a suggestion: the photos of the rings could be made smaller and placed on the sides, with the relevant content written alongside them. The large pictures filling up the article space create a discontinuity in the article.

    Will prove helpful when he's going to put a ring on it. Pretty well written, maybe a little more attention on the phrasing. Thanks for the article though!
