An engagement ring is one of the most expensive and most important pieces of jewelry you may ever purchase. An engagement ring is something that will be worn for the rest of your life. Before making that purchase, there are a few things to consider. The jewelry designers at The Diamond World, a premier Kansas City jewelry store, can guide you through these decisions to find the perfect engagement ring.
Whether you are a groom-to-be searching for the perfect engagement ring as part of a surprise proposal or a couple looking for the perfect engagement ring or wedding bands together, The Diamond World can help. We offer a vast selection of engagement rings to choose from or we can design the perfect custom engagement ring just for you. Before you shop, there are some things to consider:
Engagement Ring Budget
Know how much you are able and willing to spend before you start shopping. The traditional rule-of-thumb is to spend the equivalent of two to three months salary on an engagement ring. Some will spend more. Some will spend less. The goal should be to find the perfect ring within your budget.
Custom Ring Style
If you are shopping as a couple, the bride can weigh in on the style of the engagement ring. If you are a groom shopping for a surprise ring, you need to consider your fiancée’s style and preferences. Would the bride prefer something more modern and trendy or something more classic? Consider the size of the bride’s hands; a large diamond or thick band may look better on a bride with larger hands than on one with small, dainty fingers.
