Know Everything About Looking For a Unique Engagement Ring? Some
Pointers To Help Your Search
I often am
asked to help find someone a unique engagement ring. This puts in a
very awkward spot! The term "unique" is so broad that it
helps to define it a little bit.
If you are
looking for a unique engagement ring, first ask yourself what you
want to be unique about it. Is there a particular style you know you
are looking for. Do you simply want it to be a design that nobody
else has? It is important to narrow down what it is you want in your
If you are a
guy who is searching for an engagement ring and your special lady has
specificall told you she want a unique ring, ask her what exactly she
means by that. You have already talked about the ring if this is the
case, so get a little clarification from her. She can let you know
what style she wants - this will make your shopping a whole lot less stressful!
On the other
hand, if you are shopping for an engagement ring and have decided
yourself that you want to buy her a unique engagement ring, I suggest
not looking for anything too over the top. Engagement
rings are a symbol of your love and commitment to her. She will
wear it forever. For this reason, you don't want to pick anything
that risks going out of style. There is a reason why classic looks -
such as the solitaire ring - are still the most popular today. A
simple and classy setting makes you never have to worry about her
growing tired of it.
nothing wrong with want something a little different than the
ordinary though. I suggest looking at tension
settings. These rings show off the diamond in a unique way. The
diamond isn't in prongs like it usually is, but rather is kept in
place simply by the tension of the metal on each side of the diamond.
I probably haven't painted a clear picture for you - do a search
"tension settings" and you will see what I mean.
You can also
look at Pave settings. Here the band looks like it is
"paved" with diamonds - there are diamonds all along the
ring (with one central diamond). Again, do a search and you will see
suggest trying to find out what her "dream
ring" is. Get a friend of hers to find out if she hasn't
dropped any hints and you don't want to ask her yourself. Just
remember that any ring you give her will be unique in the sense that
YOU gave it to her. Don't feel as though you have to get her a ring
that looks unlike anything else she has seen - sometimes the most
classic rings are the best.
Also make sure
you focus on getting the best cut diamond you can. You want that
diamond to "dance" and sparkle like no other - this is what
will make her stare at it for hours (with a smile on her face!). And
don't stress out over the price of diamonds - Go to my website to
read a Diamond Buying guide I put together. I give out all sorts of
tip and tricks that can literally save you thousands - I hope it helps!
My best to you
and your "bride to be"!
