Buying Engagement Ring Tips by ~ Sarah
In addition to these great tips by Sarah, paying attention to what types of jewelry your girlfriend likes, will be beneficial! You wouldn’t want to buy her a Yellow Gold ring, when she prefers White Gold! What kind of jewelry is she currently wearing? Is her favorite piece, a vintage pendant from her grandmother? Then you may want to go with a vintage engagement ring. If she’s into modern styles, you may want to go with a more classic and simple setting. If she likes unique things, you may want to get a custom ring!
Does she like diamonds? Some girls are taking a different approach with engagement rings, and are wanting to get sapphires and rubies instead. Also consider her lifestyle when picking out a ring… If she’s the sporty type, she may not want something that will stick too far out on her finger to catch on things.
We hope these tips will help!
