Engagement rings are not only beautiful, but they serve to showcase the symbol of your love to somebody. Each engagement ring must be unique to your intended lover, and they should hold some testament of the love both of you share.

You thought building your relationship was hard enough, choosing the right engagement ring can be just as testy if you do not know what to look for. The shape of the diamond cut, the type of metal band or the budget? So what should you prioritize?

Shopping for engagement rings should not make you go broke. Maximize on the width of the diamond to its depth to get a visibly larger diamond for a reasonable price. Match the ring to your partner’s sense of style and surprise them to tears when you get down on one knee.

Will you go for the modern or the vintage engagement ring? The modern rings tend to be much sparkly than their vintage counterparts, but vintage rings are rare and unique, making most people gravitate towards them. If your partner loves sparkles so much to the point of drinking sparkling water every morning to sleeping with a sparkled eye-mask on, then modern cuts will amaze her. On the other hand, if you want to cherish the uniqueness of your partner, acknowledging that no one else exists in the world like them, vintage rings are best.

Now that you’ve got the construction of the diamonds clear, what of the color of the metal? Platinum is most famous for its durability and purity making it ideal for partners with sensitive skin. Gold is also considered too. Gold comes in different colors; with white, yellow, rose and green to choose from. If you insist on getting something old and something new, palladium, a mixture of platinum and gold, is the right pick for you.

Get all these descriptions and options, make a decision and settle the insistent thoughts. Take a deep breath, get on one knee and, surprise! Have a happily ever after.
