If is not as easy as it may seem but if it is planned correctly then the process will not be as hard.
The first thing that you need to do is decide on the budget.
Decide how much you wish to spend on the ring/rings and then begin the search to find the perfect one that fits into that budget.
The search is one that can be done online as most jewelers have websites that you can access to see the various rings that they have to offer.
The difficulty here would be to decide the cut of the diamond, the style of the ring and the type of metal.
If the bride or groom does not have their minds set on what it is that they want already, be it an old fashioned ring or a new modern design.
The best thing to do is to find out what your fiancée likes before you go ring shopping.
If you decide to choose the ring together or to let her choose it then half your job is done.
If not then you have to do your research.
Her best friend is the best one to check as they will know her preferences and her likes and dislikes.
The very next thing is to ensure that your jeweler is reputable and skilled enough to answer all the questions that you may have.
When speaking to your jeweler as well make sure that you are updated as to their policies on returning or exchanging items so that if the ring you choose is not to her liking, you will be able to make an exchange for one of similar value.
You should also ensure that you have a little knowledge of what carat weight, color, cut and clarity diamond you want to get so that you do not get lost when the technical jargon begins to hit you.
The carat weight of a diamond refers to the size that the diamond is.
The bigger it is the more carats it has and the more expensive it is.
The color of a diamond is also important.
There is actually a grading system which has been set up on the color.
D indicates a pure white diamond and is the best ranking and Z indicates a discolored diamond.
The best thing that you can do is to ensure that you stay between the E to H color range.
If you have the money you can always go for the D rated diamond.
Jewelers will also refer to the clarity of a diamond which is a rating based on the defects that can be found in a diamond.
The more defects it has the less clarity the diamond will be said to have and by default the less expensive it will be.
The last thing to bear in mind is the cut of the diamond.
When jewelers use this term it is referring to the shape of the stone (i.
round, baguette, princess) or to how symmetrical proportionate it is.
It must be noted that when picking out an engagement ring set you must ensure you get the best rating on the symmetrical proportions.
Ensure that the stone is cut properly.
