Choosing an Engagement Ring That’s Right for You

Has your sweetie been dropping hints that a proposal may be in the near future?

Sometimes these hints can be pretty direct – things like asking you your thoughts on Halo settings, for example, are a pretty good clue that somebody’s been doing some shopping. It’s important that you’re happy with your engagement ring. This is a piece of jewelry that you’re going to be showing to everyone you know, and more importantly, wearing on your wedding day and during the many happy years that follow.

Choosing the style best for you:

If you’ve never picked out a major piece of jewelry before, it can be a little intimidating. Diamond engagement rings come in a wide variety of styles, and there are many different engagement ring designers and brands. There are just so many choices.

Wedding magazines, websites, and even TV commercials are full of advertising, telling you that you have to get this style or that style to celebrate your love. Friends and relatives are often full of advice, sometimes to the point where it can be a little overbearing. If you’re feeling stressed and freaked out, we have one word for you: relax. There is only one opinion that matters when it comes to engagement rings – the one you and your sweetheart share.

Take Your Time:

You don’t have to pick out your engagement ring in a hurry. Lots of brides-to-be find it very helpful to check out engagement rings online first. Instagram and Pinterest are full of beautiful engagement rings. It’s a nice way to browse without anyone looking over your shoulder, offering their opinion.

Create a private Pinterest board to save pictures of your favorite styles. Don’t be surprised if there’s more than one style that captures your attention; there are so many beautiful designs out there, it’s easy to fall in love!


Best Options For You:

It’s important to think about your lifestyle and personality when choosing an engagement ring.

If you’re a country girl who loves getting out into the woods and is always going on adventures, you may want an engagement ring that has some substance to it, with a profile that keeps your diamonds relatively safe. Practical rings can still be extremely beautiful.

Another factor to keep in mind is the budget your sweetheart
has to work with.

Most better jewelry stores offer financing, which means your sweetheart can pay for your ring over the course of time, rather than all at once. There are bridal jewelry brands that specialize in helping couples get the most out of the budget by providing beautiful engagement rings at realistic prices.

The Promise Collection is a local favorite for exactly this reason.



Finally, don’t be afraid to do a little pre-shopping research on your own. If you have questions about the different engagement ring styles, prices, and customization options, any of the sales staff at Rogers and Brooke Jewelers will be happy to help you. If you’re a person who prefers to shop when it’s not so busy, schedule your engagement ring research trip for the middle of the day in the middle of the week. If you prefer to get lost in the crowd a little bit, arrive later in the day or on the weekend.
