Now that your budget is set, it is time to choose the ring.
We are proud to offer engagement rings that will surely fit into your budget. We consider it a privilege to help you find the perfect ring for your love story. We are the expert when it comes to engagement rings. There are a few key steps to take as you set off to choose the ring, one of the most memorable and exciting purchases of your life.
- Determine the style
Your partner’s style should be on your mind as you begin to seek out the perfect engagement ring. Is her style more classic or modern? Edgy or sophisticated? Simple or super bold? If your partner’s style is not easily defined, use your resources to discover what kind of jewelry she tends to flock toward.
Take a peek inside of her jewelry box, her closet, at her shopping wish lists. Your partner will appreciate a ring that matches her style—something she is sure to wear on a daily basis. If you are still unsure of what her jewelry style might be, turn to the internet. Many people use Pinterest to keep track of items they love, want to purchase in the future, or as general inspiration for their style. If you seek out your partner’s Pinterest board, you may find it easier to pinpoint her style.
One of your best resources? Her best friend, sister, mother, brother, or someone who will keep you company as you shop. Take someone who knows her style with you. (Just make sure they can keep a secret!)
- Choose a gemstone
If you have yet to choose the gemstone that will be the center of your engagement ring, now is the time. After familiarizing yourself with your partner’s style, it will likely be easier for you to decide between a royal sapphire, an elegant emerald, or a classic, sparkling diamond.
- Choose the ring
Here comes the exciting part. You have your budget set, you are comfortable with your partner’s style, you know that you are shopping for a diamond. It is time to set out and discover the emblem of your love.
There are a few ways to go about choosing your ring. Many of us prefer perusing the web before making a big purchase – this is true for engagement ring shopping as well. Ben Bridge is a great resource for discovering certain styles, diamond sizes, and price ranges. You can absolutely order your engagement ring from our website, but if you want to see it in person, you can find your nearest Ben Bridge store and show us a ring you loved on our website or simply tell us your story and we can help you find the perfect piece.
Talking to an industry expert will give you confidence and joy as you make one of the most important purchases of your life. Your local Ben Bridge store will happily guide you through the process.
