How to Find the Perfect Engagement Ring

Maybe it’s when the most mundane activities seem a pleasure or when the silence is never awkward. Maybe it’s the feeling that when you are together, you can conquer any obstacle.

That’s how you know you have found your soulmate—the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. And that’s a truly amazing thing.

So now it’s on to the next step—the engagement ring! An engagement ring is one of the most exciting pieces of jewellery you will ever purchase because it is the first gift you will give when you truly commit to your partner forever.

The right engagement ring will rouse joy and jitters that will be unforgettable. Make the most of it with a few pieces of advice that will help you on your way to that piece of perfection.Â


Talk to friends or close relatives. There is a good chance that your partner has discussed what style of ring he or she likes (or dislikes) with close friends or relatives. Talking with those people before you begin shopping could help you narrow down the perfect engagement style, cut or colour. Be sure to keep your secret close, you don’t want too many knowing your intentions before your partner does. Â
Research. Gathering research about ring types, such as the 4 C’s, will clarify your options and give you more confidence when working with your jeweller. Studying before you shop will also help prepare you for what expenses to anticipate and the best options that are available for your specific budget.
Find the size. The best way to determine your partner’s ring size is to borrow a ring he or she already wears or playfully place one of your own rings on your partner’s finger to gauge the size.


The gift of your heart and lifelong commitment is invaluable, and so too is the moment you find the perfect engagement ring. Think of it as a quest, or a chapter in your own personal story. On what is clearly the journey of a lifetime, revel in the warmth and surprise and the gift of making someone you love unbelievably happy.
