A Man's Guide to Buying an Engagement Ring

Deciding to spend the rest of your life with your soul mate is an easy decision compared to finding the perfect engagement ring. With so many different cuts, carats, and colors to choose from, finding the right engagement ring can seem like a daunting task. And while there certainly are no limits on the number of choices available, buying an engagement ring that your true love will cherish for the rest of her life is actually quite easy. This quick and easy guide will help point you in the right direction. For help narrowing in on the perfect ring, talk with an engagement ring jeweler in Chicago.

Do Some Covert Reconnaissance

When presenting an engagement ring to your soul mate, you not only want to make sure she'll say yes but also that the ring will fit. Once you've decided to purchase an engagement ring, do your best cat burglar impression and lift a ring out of your jewelry box to have it sized by a jeweler. While you're in her jewelry box, snap a few pictures with your phone so your jeweler can help you pick out the ring that best suites her style and preferences.

Study the Four C's

A diamond engagement ring is an investment that both of you will cherish for the rest of your lives. That's why it's important to brush up on the four C's of diamonds: Color, Clarity, Cut, and Carat. Today, the 4Cs of Diamond Quality is the universal method for assessing the quality of any diamond in the world. Once you know how to rate the quality of a stone, you'll be able to find the perfect diamond engagement ring in Chicago that your true love deserves.

Make it Custom

If you really want to make an impression when you get down on one knee and open the ring box for the first time, talk with a ring maker about a custom engagement ring. A jeweler will help you pick the perfect band, diamond, gems, and features that will reflect your love's personality and show just how much you care.
