A ring is a symbol of a bond or a promise. Connected with love, devotion and commitment, rings have been one of the most desired present from a loved one. Choosing the perfect ring for yourself or someone special should be taken seriously. There are things to consider before buying a ring, like budget, personality, style and design. Here are 5 easy steps on how to choose a ring.
1. Establish your budget.
There are a lot of jewellery boutiques and ring designs you can choose from. Narrow down your choices by setting up your budget. Determine how much you are willing to spend for your desired ring. By doing so you can have options later depending on the price range you set. There are also options to get practical with your purchase. Some jewellery studios offer rings in negotiable prices and some designs can be modified according to your preference and budget.
2. Know the style you want.
Personality and lifestyle must be taken into consideration when choosing a ring. Make sure the ring you choose won’t get in the way of the wearer’s daily activities. The ring setting can affect one's lifestyle. For example, active people would prefer a setting that holds the centre stone lower to the hand or something with small stone accents. Does the wearer prefer classic and elegant, modern and contemporary or something extraordinary? Knowing the personal style preference is important too.
3. Know the ring size.
You wouldn't want to give a ring that is too tight or too loose. The most effective way to have the accurate ring size is to let a professional jeweller measure the finger. If you're planning to give the ring as a surprise, there are other ways to know the ring size. You can ask help from the person's close friends and relatives or try borrowing one of their existing rings. Knowing the length and width of the finger can also help in choosing the design later on. Wider bands complement long fingers well while slender bands go well with shorter fingers.
4. Find the perfect jeweller.
A ring is both a financial and sentimental investment. It is only right to find the best jeweller to help you find the perfect ring. Before choosing a jeweller, you must take your budget into consideration. Jewellers offer their service in different prices. You can check out jewellers online by searching on local listings. By doing so, you will have an idea on the rings they offer at what prices and if they come with special incentives like a lifetime warranty. Read reviews and testimonials in order to choose someone trustworthy.
5. Choose your design.
After you settle down with the jeweller you can then choose the ring design you want. Do you want a simple plain band or a ring set with diamonds or gemstones? Again, you must take your budget into consideration in choosing or modifying a ring design. Most jewellers offer ring designs with different precious rare metals for the band - gold, platinum, sterling silver, titanium, tungsten and more. They also have a wide selection of diamonds, coloured diamonds and coloured precious gemstones for the centre stone and ring band embellishments.
