Don't spend more than you can afford
One of the most common hidden or unsuspected dangers out there are the extremely expensive, yet alluring jewelry stores. They usually have a very inviting ora. The canny salesman will smother you with "intelligent" and beguiling reasons as to why to purchase that utterly expensive ring. So, avoiding stores like that can be of great benefit for the ones who are about to pop the question.
Start off small
If you are on a tight budget and are not able to purchase a big rock, do not fret. Taking out a humongous loan will haunt you for a long time. So, avoid making that mistake. Instead, purchase the diamond you can
afford with the option to upgrade it
later. Doesn’t that sound smarter and more practical? Basically, when the time comes and you can splurge more on your beloved one, choose a good occasion, like a birthday or an anniversary and surprise your partner with the upgraded version of their already captivating ring.
Options for sets
Nowadays, when buying an engagement ring, we advise soon-to-be-weds to consider buying a set. This can be for the engagement ring as well as for the wedding bands. These also come in various shapes and size and vary in price. They are designed to complement each other. You notice that purchasing both rings at the same time saves you often time and money.
Pros and cons of online
One huge perk of online shopping is anonymity. You are able to truly surprise someone. There are various internet sources where you can browse and research everything you want to know about rings. Once you come across on the perfect one, you are simply a click away from making the dreams of your partner come true. These rings can be less expensive compared to those in physical stores. Ship it to a safe address, like your best friend’s house, is also a great idea. This way you can avoid getting busted.
An unfamiliar sparkle
But online shopping also has its cons. Each and every diamond has a unique sparkle. You want to let the sparkle of that special diamond captivate you. Easy in real life, but online almost impossible. Many photos and videos just don't do the diamond justice. And many companies are known to photoshop their diamond. On the photos, the diamond looks bigger, whiter and more beautiful overall. You don't know exactly beforehand what you will get and chances are, you're even a bit disappointed with your purchase. Our diamond consultants always try to present your ideal ring as good as possible. But nevertheless, we always strongly advise to come over and see the diamond(s) yourself.
