Finding the Best Engagement Rings Takes Heart

You are ready to propose. You have found the girl of your dreams and you know you want to spend the rest of your life with her. The only problem? You are terrified of buying a ring. So much rests on finding the right one, the one that will say everything you want her to know for the next 100 years, at least. It is an overwhelming task, like finding a needle in a haystack. Except that it really is not. Finding the best engagement rings only takes a little research, and a lot of heart.

The most effective way to find the best ring for your money is to know a little about engagement rings before you start shopping. There are a few things that affect the price of a ring. For one, the type of metal has a substantial impact on price. There are several different metal options, like yellow or white gold, palladium, or platinum. The price will increase or decrease depending on how rare the metal is. Because platinum is much more rare than gold, it costs quite a bit more.

The size, or carat, of the diamond probably has the most obvious affect on price. Because diamonds are more rare the larger they get, the price jumps at every carat and half-carat. Smaller diamonds, even several of them, will cost less than one large diamond. Different shaped cuts also affect the diamond’s price, because some use much more of the rough diamond than others, meaning they cost less overall.

Another way to find the best engagement rings is to know where to shop. Online sites can usually sell their engagement rings for much less than an actual local store because of low overhead costs and a very competitive market.

But perhaps the most important thing to finding the best engagement rings is your heart. It will tell you what ring is the right one. You know the woman you love. You know her tastes and her personal style. And in your heart, you know everything you want the ring to say. And knowing that, you will know the perfect ring when you see it.
