How to Find the Perfect Engagement Ring for your Fiancé

It’s difficult to overstate how important it is to find the perfect engagement ring for your fiancé. For some, this could be the difference between the ultimate profession of your love and showing that you pay zero attention to their sense of style and taste. Giving the perfect engagement ring is much more than asking someone to marry you – it’s a symbol of how much your partner means to you. With that in mind, how do you find the perfect engagement ring for your fiancé?

Assuming you want your proposal to be a surprise, you’re going to need to do a little research before you can find the perfect ring. Spend some time getting to know the kind of rings your partner wears – do they prefer yellow gold, white gold or platinum? Do they like big, flashy stones or do they prefer something slightly more subtle? All of these things are considerations to keep in mind when picking out the perfect ring.

The next consideration is the type of stone you want in the ring. While some people are particularly fond of sapphires or even their birthstone, diamonds have long been the most popular option for people getting engaged. As far as diamonds go, almost 80 per cent of people opt for the traditional Round Brilliant diamond, though this option clearly isn’t for everyone. If you want a ring which truly suits your partner, it’s important to consider all of your options.

Picking the right stone starts with examining the size of your partner’s hands – specifically their fingers. If your fiancé has long thin fingers, stones which make their fingers look longer such as a wide Oval shape diamond probably won’t look right. Likewise if your partner has shorter, thicker fingers, stones which make their fingers appear shorter could be an issue. If you can find a friend with similar sized hands who doesn’t mind being your hand model for the day, it may be worth bringing them along when you go to pick out your engagement ring. This way you can cover all of your options and make sure that the ring really does look perfect before you buy it. Remember to try a wide range of shapes, sizes and styles – cover all of your bases if you want to remain confident that you’ve picked the perfect stone for your partner.

Of course, some people are easier to shop for than others. It may be immediately obvious whether your fiancé would prefer a traditional Round Brilliant diamond engagement ring or if they’d prefer something more modern and romantic such as a Heart shaped diamond. For others, you may have to break out your detective skills and figure this out for yourself. If you’re really struggling, try visiting a specialist diamond jeweller like Marlow’s Diamonds. Certain personalities tend to fit certain diamond shapes – the best jewellers will often encourage you to tell them about your partner, using the information you give them to suggest a stone they feel best suits their personality. They will also guarantee that all of their stones are ethically sourced and come with full independent certification. In fact, the diamond engagement and wedding rings by Marlow’s Diamonds are among the best when it comes to conflict-free IGI and GIA certified diamonds.

With all this in mind you should be able to find the perfect engagement ring which truly reflects your fiancé’s style while fitting her finger to a T. Remember if you have any questions, most jewellers will be more than happy to talk you through the whole process.
