By kalwant Rana
Your engagement day is just around the corner, you got the suit, the dress, the hall, the flowers, the guests, everything is arranged......but... where are the engagement rings? noooooooo...
This has to be the worst thing that could happen! how could you forget the rings? The most important items for your special day are the rings! Your only concern should be whether you want diamond engagement rings or antique engagement rings.
So now all you have to decide is what kind of ring you want for your engagement. Diamonds");
are always a good choice. Its not everyday that you make a commitment like this, so why not have huge diamonds");
sparkling on your finger. Or if you have more of a traditional taste than a ring that is antique, is perfect for your engagement.
Going for a theme that you both like can save a lot of embarrassment.
Following your instincts is your first point of call when choosing a ring, also, ask yourself if it will be a ring that you will be comfortable wearing every day for the rest of your life. A simple plain gold band will be in style for many years to come. If that's too conservative for you, why not try a beaded edge or an engraved style.
If you like living like an A list celebrity, what about a ring of channel-set diamonds? Ultimately, the ring you pick will be a physical expression of your style and personality. There are couples that base their choice on extra curricular activities they partake in, for example they are nature enthusiasts and have their rings made in the shape of their favorite perennials. Not everyone's cup of tea, I know...but.. there is no wrong choice because its what you want.
Surprise the one you love and show her how much attention you pay her.
By far the best option is to let her pick her own ring. Everybody she knows will be there at the event of the year and the last thing you want is her wearing a ring she hates! Can you imagine the look on her face at the engagement?
If you decide you want to surprise her, then choosing a ring for the engagement needs a lot of careful thought. What kind of lifestyle does she lead? What kind of rings does she wear? What is her favorite precious metal? Does she have a favorite gemstone? The ring has to be the embodiment of all these characteristics. Remember, she is going to want to wear her ring everyday, not just for that day. The last thing she wants is an unsightly eyesore on her finger.
Preparation you need to do to pick the perfect ring.
Pay close attention
One thing that we tend to do is switch to standby mode
as soon as the better half wants our opinion. Either she is about to
buy her 300th pair of shoes or the next piece of clothing she is thinking
to add to her already bulging walk in cupboard. Stop...look... and
listen! This information is absolutely vital. She is telling you what
she likes, dislikes, used to like and most importantly...what she wants.
you know what size she is?
Well.. if you followed step 1, you would
know this information. However, if this essential data slipped your
attention, its time to go shopping. But if you are planning a surprise,
this reconnaissance mission is going require some covert tactics and
bond style execution. You can't let her know what you are intending,
so you might need to take her on a few trips just to make sure she
doesn't get suspicious.
What style would look best on her hands?
one of us has been made different; however there are some tricks of
the trade that can bridge these differences. Not everyone is born a
supermodel and has hands that can advertise tiffany diamonds. But there
is hope yet for the majority amongst us:
For example if you have
short fingers, an elongated diamond like an oval or marquise can give
the effect of sleek, elegant fingers. Where as if you have long slender
fingers, a wide band with a bold style can take the emphasis of the
Its time to put the icing on the cake
All your research
has been done, now its time to take the plunge. You know what she likes
and what she dislikes, her favorite stones and her favorite precious
metal. So.. what does she want? A huge solitaire set in a stunning
platinum band or maybe a heart shaped ruby surrounded by 18kt yellow
gold. The final decision is now in your hands..
So if you decide
on a diamond rock or an antique gem, the ring is the most important
item on the list for the engagement and without it you better get used
to sleeping in the spare room!
