So, you’re ready to propose? Congratulations is soon in order, but you still need to find that perfect ring.It may seem like a challenge with all the different ring options available, but don’t worry — when it comes to shopping for engagement rings in Denver, you just need a little guidance. Keep these tips from Mark’s Diamonds in mind, and you’ll find the perfect ring in no time!
Know Their Style
Let’s be honest…it’s not the ring they are saying “yes” to, it’s you! BUT, you still want to present a ring that represents your love!Perhaps they love a certain diamond cut or a particular setting or style. They may have told you this, indirectly or not, or you might already have an idea of what she loves in a ring. If not, before you head out to shop around, you should have at least a ballpark of idea of what you are looking for.
If you have a chance, look at their jewelry box. Do they seem to favor a specific style of ring? Perhaps they have a sibling or a friend who would love to help you select the perfect ring, without blowing the surprise! Luckily, when you shop for engagement rings in Denver, the expert jewelers at Mark’s Diamonds will happily help you figure out the perfect style and cut for your proposal.
What Size Should You Get?
Unless you just happen to already know your partner’s ring size, don’t sweat it! At Mark’s Diamonds, we can help you pick a placeholder size so that it is sure to slide on their finger for the proposal. The worst thing that could happen is if you try to guess the right size and it ends up being so small that it didn’t even fit on their finger! Even if it is too big, you want it to slide all the way on. At Mark’s Diamonds we offer complimentary re-sizing for when after you propose! That way Mark can meet the love of your life and make sure the ring fits properly.
Make A Day of It
More and more couples pick out the ring together before the proposal or get engaged with a simple solitaire ring, and then come in to have the stone put in a customized setting together. If you decide to go this route, consider making a day of it. Your Denver engagement ring shopping endeavor will become another celebration of your engagement!
Have a special brunch prior to visiting the jeweler. At Mark’s Diamonds we can happily provide champagne or other spirits for the appointment. After successfully finding the perfect ring, celebrate with dinner and drinks with friends and family, or have a romantic night alone, if that is what you both prefer. Whatever you do, make sure that it’s a wonderful experience for you as a couple, which will only enhance the excitement about your engagement!
Knowing Your Budget & How Much You Should Spend
While it may not seem romantic, you want to know how much you can spend on an engagement ring. The wedding and the beginning of a new life together can both become expensive ventures, and you want to take care not to overspend on one particular expense.
Luckily, many Denver engagement ring jewelers have the knowledge, expertise and inventory to help you find the perfect ring without stepping outside of your budget. If you know the style, cut and setting that you’re looking for, the experts at Mark’s Diamonds will have no trouble finding a beautiful engagement ring that you can afford.
As far as how much money you should spend, that is entirely up to you. Some people say you should spend two times your monthly income, but we do not follow that at Mark’s Diamonds as a hard and fast rule. You will do better to consider your own personal budget, income and expenses. When you pair that information with the sort of ring you would like to buy, a good Denver engagement ring jeweler or jewelry store will be able to help find a beautiful ring without the need to overspend or put yourself in debt.
Remember What’s Important
While you want to do everything that you can to make your engagement special — and the right engagement ring is certainly part of that — remember that the ring symbolizes your love, not the other way around! If you don’t think you can find the perfect ring, take the aforementioned advice and make a day of it. They will love shopping for the perfect engagement ring with you. They’ll get the ring of her dreams, and you will both have an amazing time in the process.
However you decide to pop the question, and whatever ring you decide to buy, congratulations on your engagement from all of us at Mark’s Diamonds. We hope that your Denver engagement ring shopping experience only adds to the celebration of your love.
