Start With Pinterest

A little Pinterest stalking may be able to tell you everything you need to know about picking the perfect engagement right for your partner! It’s no secret that many people dream of their wedding day years before beginning the wedding planning process. With this in mind, it’s common for folks to have a designated Pinterest board for wedding inspiration – including examples of engagement rings!  

Ask The Besties

Does your fiancé-to-be have a tight group of friends? If so, they’ve likely talked about their future engagement rings! Before heading to the jewelers, it’s a good idea to consult a few of your partner’s closest friends. However, it’s probably best to only connect with people you know won’t spoil the surprise! Ask for feedback from one or two people you know won’t reveal your plans to pop the question. Not only will this keep the surprise on the down-low, but it will also limit the number of opinions you receive. You may be surprised to learn that your significant other has already told their closest friends the exact ring they’ve been longing for! 

Like Mother, Like Daughter

When in doubt, Mama often knows best! It’s customary to ask for permission from your significant other’s parents before you ask for their hand in marriage. If you’re planning on following this tradition, it’s a great opportunity to ask your beloved’s parents for their suggestions. Not only will they be overjoyed with the news, but they’ll also feel included when you ask them for feedback. Who knows, you might be pleasantly surprised by their response! 

Many families have heirlooms that they’ve been looking forward to passing down to their children. These pieces of jewelry may symbolize generations of love, marriage, teamwork, and even good luck! Perhaps your future-in-laws have the perfect engagement ring waiting for you in their safe. Or, maybe they have an old diamond you can use to customize something one of a kind! 

Consider Lab Created Diamonds

One thing is for sure, engagement rings can be expensive! Since you likely haven’t shopped for engagement rings before, you may have a little sticker shock when you start browsing. Keep in mind, the amount you spend on this symbol of love does not directly correlate to the unconditional devotion you have for your partner. If you’re looking for a more affordable, yet equally stunning, engagement ring option definitely consider lab-created diamonds. Lab-created diamonds are still real diamonds but unlike mined diamonds, they are ethically sourced and grown by scientists. This results in a more affordable and even better clarity option. 

After all, you’ll be spending plenty of money on your wedding celebration very soon! By purchasing a more affordable ring, you can save thousands. Instead, use the extra money as a nest egg, honeymoon fund, downpayment on your first house, or even towards the wedding festivities! 

Time To Go Shopping!

Now that you’ve gotten great feedback from family and friends, you can shop around for the perfect Houston engagement ring! We encourage you to shop in-store at reputable jewelry stores. Like most online purchases, things can look quite a bit different when they arrive at your door from what they looked like on the internet. A good jeweler will be able to walk you through the most on-trend and timeless options that fit your budget. 

You may walk into a store and immediately feel drawn by one ring in particular. Or, it might take you several trips before you’re ready to hand over the credit card. This purchase shouldn’t be rushed! Take the time to consider the type of jewelry your partner wears. If they don’t wear silver, then a gold band might be more appropriate than platinum or white gold alternatives. 

Let Them Pick It Out! 

If there’s one thing we know for sure, many couples are throwing centuries of tradition to the wind! There’s nothing wrong with letting your partner pick out their own ring. If you want them to pick out their engagement ring, but still want the element of surprise, you can propose with a temporary ring or without one at all. You know your partner better than anyone else. If you think this is the right option for you, that’s awesome! Your wedding is about the love you share for one another and you get to make the rules throughout the entire planning process. 

After You Buy The Ring

Congratulations! You’ve made the plunge and purchased a ring you can’t wait to offer to the love of your life. Before you change your Facebook status, it might be a good idea to get insurance for that shiny new rock!
