With the multitude of engagement ring styles out there, a little guidance goes a long way to keep your shopping experience frustration-free. That’s exactly why education is one of the cornerstones of our business. In addition to understanding the basics of diamond buying, the other key question you should ask yourself is: Who’s your girl?
Remember that an engagement ring is also an everyday accessory and to many women, an extension of their personal style. To get a sense of her fashion identity, take a look at her other jewelry and clothing choices. Those are excellent clues to help lead you in the right engagement ring direction.
Does she wear yellow or white metals more frequently?
Does she have an active lifestyle? If so, consider a ring with a lower profile, one that rests closer to the finger, rather than extending outward, to avoid knocking it or getting it caught on things.
