Becoming engaged to someone is a very happy moment in any girl’s life, and the excitement for the wedding is then allowed to officially mount. But getting the ring right in the first place could be a huge problem if you aren’t able to have at least some kind of say in the choosing. In this article we will give some general advice about ‘helping’ your man to choose a ring, and then a focus on what kind of rings you can expect to choose between.
Your first concern (and main concern) should be that you talk to your partner about choosing an engagement ring. We don’t mean a half-hearted chat about the issue, but instead a deep and involved discussion around the kind of ring you want and the colour and so on. Every girl’s tastes are different, but you should be able to express these ideas and preferences to him before he goes out and ruins things by choosing a ring that simply does not suit you.
Be ready to say that you simply may want a classic diamond ring. These can be costly, so if you’re going for the classic rock you need to be able to express that confidently. Your partner may need to get a loan to pay for it, and the sooner he knows that you want a substantial ring the better for him. The more time he has to prepare for such a large purchase, the better.
You can go for a geometric art deco kind of shape for your ring in diamond, such as a circle or square shape. There are plenty of these around as engagement rings in Houston, and if you take the time to look at various rings with your partner before he runs and buys one, you should be able to ascertain whether or not you like this classic shape.
There are also plenty of bands out there, wider rings that are more modern and imposing, but still allow a lady to feel feminine. You certainly don’t want one of these if you have tiny fingers though, so it is always worthwhile ensuring your partner knows what they are and whether you like them or not.
You may actually want coloured diamonds, of which there are plenty on the market. Some of these are very pricey, and you will need to be clear on what colour you want if you are going to go down this route. Many women like coloured diamonds, but one colour will be very different to another. Get this part right if you are going to have coloured rock.
Remember to talk to your partner as much as you can before he starts to choose ring styles and colours. This is vitally important because the vast majority of engagement rings have to be sized and sometimes even fitted. The last thing you want to do is have to take a ring back and wait another month before it can be fixed so it suits you.
