Things to consider when choosing the perfect engagement ring for your partner

Choosing an engagement ring is a very personal experience. One person’s dream engagement ring could be another person's nightmare! If you are heading out to buy your other half an engagement ring, it’s not quite as easy as just seeing what you fancy on the day. It requires careful thought and planning beforehand. Here are some things to consider when choosing the perfect engagement ring for your partner.

Your budget

When buying an engagement ring, your budget is the first thing you need to consider. It can be easy to go overboard with spending, but you don’t want to put yourself in debt! Set a budget for yourself before you start browsing, and if you can’t find what you are looking for in your price range and don’t want to compromise on this, it might be a good idea to wait a little longer before making your purchase.

The shape of the diamond

When you're shopping for an engagement ring, consider what shape you would like the diamond to be cut into. Emerald diamond rings, cushion cut diamond rings and oval diamond rings are some of the most popular shapes for engagement rings, but the shape of the stone you choose will depend on your budget and the amount of sparkle you're looking for.

Your partner's personal style

You know your partner better than anyone, so it's essential to consider their personal style when you're shopping for their engagement ring. Would your other half like something big and flashy, or would they prefer something understated and elegant? Would they like a coloured stone or a diamond? Think about their style carefully and take a look at their jewellery collection to see whether they tend to opt for silver, gold or even rose gold jewellery. It's also a good idea to think of what they do for a living too; if they have a hands-on job then it could be a good idea to get something more practical that they won't have to remove for work.
