3 tips to help you choose the perfect engagement ring

  • How do you choose the right ring size for her engagement ring?
  • How do you choose the alloy for your engagement rings?
  • How do you know what precious stone suits you the best?

Usually the groom himself buys the engagement ring for his fiancé. However, perhaps you would like to choose a ring together. In that case, the purchase is made even more carefully, but the ring will fully meet your taste. But how should you choose a ring from the vast array of engagement rings? We would like to list a couple tips to make the decision easier.

How do you choose the right ring size for her engagement ring?

When your future groom wishes to buy the engagement ring himself, he must know beforehand what your ring size is. Traditionally, the ring is worn on the left ring finger, just as the wedding ring, but if you would like to wear it on your right hand, this is possible as well. In case you are present at the time of the purchase, it is a lot easier. You can try the ring on and feel if it is too tight or too loose around your finger. When your future husband picked the ring without you, it is of course still possible to adjust the ring size at a jeweller.

Take your time to try the ring on multiple times, to be really sure that the ring fits you perfectly. When choosing the perfect engagement ring, the size is very important. A ring that is too big is not very elegant. Thus, opt for a more delicate ring when you have shorter fingers, and choose a wider ring when you have bigger hands. This will show off your hands beautifully.

How do you choose the alloy for your engagement rings?

When you have finally found the perfect ring for around your finger, it is meant to stay there for a long period of time. And of course, nobody wants a ring that gets scratched or changes colour over time. Therefore, you must pay particular attention to your habits and everyday activities when choosing your engagement ring. If you are very active, choose a platinum ring, as it is very a hard and durable material. Because it naturally has a beautiful silver colour, platinum will retain its original colour.

Ultimately the white gold ring remains a real classic. With this ring, you are guaranteed that it will stay fashionable forever. However, white gold needs good maintenance and should be taken care of.

How do you know what precious stone suits you the best?

After the alloy of your engagement ring, you have to choose the precious stone. For celebrities and for the most of us, the diamond remains the best option. Besides it being perfect for every alloy, the diamond is very hard and durable. You cannot lose a diamond very easily and it will not lose its shine even though you wear it every day.

At BAUNAT you will find the best range of diamond engagement rings. In addition to diamonds you can opt for other precious stones as well, to give a personal touch to your ring. A ruby or an emerald, for example, is a beautiful coloured precious stone.
