Guide | Choosing the perfect ring

Saturday, September 15th, 2012

I had a lot of fun picking out Marissa’s ring! Choosing an engagement ring is always a significant process, whether you are looking to pick out that perfect ring for your fiancé, or you are helping with the selection process of your own ring. Naturally, engagement rings are very special pieces of jewelry, but they are also all unique and different from one another, which means that the selection process is all about finding something that perfectly suits the woman who will be wearing the ring. Many people do not actually realize until they start this process just how many options there are, and how many little details can be chosen and customized within a single ring. So with that in mind, here are a few tips on how to go about picking the perfect engagement ring!

The first and broadest tip worth considering is to think about shopping for an engagement ring online. Of course there are always going to be stores in local malls and shopping centers with plenty of nice engagement rings on display, but you will almost always find a bigger and better selection online, and you may also find that you have more options when it comes to customization.

Something else you may want to consider as you start trying to find the perfect ring is that much like other pieces of fashion and style, engagement rings do run according to trends. This is not to say that you have to simply do whatever is most popular, but knowing a few of the recent trends in engagement rings may help you to narrow down your decisions. For example, in recent years there have been a few major trends when it comes to the style of these rings. One trend is that vintage styles for engagement ring have been very popular; another is that many couples are starting to use alternative stones, such as sapphires, emeralds, etc. in engagement rings, rather than the more classic and traditional diamonds. Even if you or your significant other would not typically trend toward these types of options, understanding what’s popular can help you to get ideas as you select your ring.

Ultimately, the selection will depend mostly upon your own personal taste and that of your significant other. In everything from the color of the band, to the style of the ring, to the type of stone used, you have many options to consider. With the right amount of planning and attention, you can be sure that your engagement ring will be both unique and beautiful.

Here are some of the beautiful rings we’ve photographed! These are only a few of many different types of rings available.
