Practical Considerations When Picking an Engagement Ring

Planning on popping the question? Congratulations, this is a major moment in your life and the start of an exciting new chapter. Understandably, you will be feeling plenty of nerves when you decide to ask someone to marry you and you will want it to be as romantic as possible. Picking out the ring is a hugely daunting task but there are a few tips which should help to reduce stress and allow you to pick out the perfect piece.

Budget

First, you need to work out how much money you can afford to spend as this will filter your results - there are rings available for all budgets but they can be a huge cost. The general rule of thumb is to spend 2 months of your income on the ring but this will depend on your lifestyle and current budget.

Ring Size

You certainly won’t want the magic of the moment ruined by trying to put the ring on your partner’s finger only to find that the ring is way too small. It is for this reason why you must know your partner’s ring size before you start shopping but this is challenging if it is to be a surprise. A few ways to get their size without them realis-ing is to borrow a ring that they already own, to measure their finger with a piece of string while they sleep or to ask a friend/family member who is likely to know.

Style & Lifestyle

You must also consider your partner's personal style and lifestyle when picking out an engagement ring. Think about the jewellery that they currently wear along with the colours and patterns to get a sense of what style they would like best. 

You also need to consider your partner’s lifestyle - if they use their hands a lot then a ring with elevated diamonds is not a great idea, for example. Places like Fhinds carry a wide range of engagement rings for all senses of style so you should be able to find one here.

These are the main considerations that you need to make when picking out an engagement ring for your partner. It is a daunting decision because it is a huge moment in your life and you will want to choose the right ring, but with careful thought and considerate you should make the right choice. It is then a case of finding the right time and place to pop the question.
