How to Buy Her the Perfect Ring

Many women tend to have distinct preferences when it comes to choices about their jewelry, and some women are so personally defined that if they don't like a jewelry piece, they won't take it. Some just don't care and will take anything. But, do you want to buy her the perfect ring, or just something that will just do?

    Never be afraid to explore her jewelry tastes. Pay attention to what she wears. See if there's a piece of jewelry she wears more than any other piece. Note this away.

    Don't hesitate to go to the mall and randomly walk into the jewelry store. If she wants to go - go! If she doesn't say anything, just follow around and see what she's peaking at. Ask her what she likes!

    If she's showing you things she likes, or researching on things - listen!

    Start looking. When you've seen everything you feel you need to know about what she likes, start looking!
    • Does she like 1 stone, or 3? Does she like big flashy rings, or small dainty ones?
    • Look for a ring that fits her likes and her personality. If she's uptight and picky, always wants to look good, she wants the bigger stone, possibly with a little extra on the side.

    Avoid getting anything smaller than 1/4k diamond when you're proposing, even if it's just a starter right and you want to go bigger later because you're broke. The average 1/4k solitaire round cut is $350-$400.
    • Look at the diamond quality - look at the prongs holding the diamond. In a round cut - 6 prongs is best. It supports the diamond better. 4 is average, think about what kind of work she does.

    Go to different stores and ask questions. Tell them what you're looking for, don't go to the first person, shop around.

    Figure out what size she is! Whether you straight up ask her or steal an old ring (sometimes finding an old ring doesn't work....it may be too big, or too small.)

    Absorb any hints she provides you with, get what she wants, not what you want. Money shouldn't be an issue. But if you can't get her exactly what she wants, she should love you for it anyway.

    Remember that shape is important - heart, pear, princess, etc. Get the shape you feel she likes, or fits her. Princess - she's your princess. Heart - show her you love her. Round - it's perfect! (personally I prefer round and no larger than 1/2 kt).
