Engagement Rings: Tips to Find The Best One For Your Style
Things to consider when you begin shopping are the cut, clarity, and size of the gemstone. When picking out the actual setting, you’ll decide whether you want the ring to match in brand and style with the wedding ring, find a complementary one, or have it as a stand-alone option.
Of course, you’ll want to pick out the band color: do you prefer rose gold, gold, white gold, or platinum?
It can be overwhelming to wade through the multitude of choices available. To guide you on your path to wedded bliss, look to the experts. A trusted and certified professional can assist you on your way to that special day.
Did you know that you can even design your own ring? Imagine receiving just the right ring with all of your unique design choices to represent your style and love.
When you find a great jeweler, plan on a fun outing with your significant other to try on engagement rings. You can take a leisurely morning or a quiet afternoon. Take your time so that you can find what you really want. Be sure to look at some that you might not initially consider. You might be pleasantly surprised.
Of note, if you tend to experience hand swelling on hot days or after exercising, consider measuring your ring finger after strenuous activities to get an idea of how much it changes. Of course, have your jeweler measure your finger for accuracy and when finalizing your purchase. Here’s a useful and simple tutorial to get you started.

Planning a wedding can run the gamut of emotions from wonderfully exciting to sometimes stressful, regardless of your event’s size.
Remember to take some time out for yourself and relax. Set a reminder on your phone to look up from planning and stretch. Have a bachelorette party you will remember forever. Take lots of pictures, and just enjoy those closest to you.
Another great tip for reducing stress during wedding planning is to schedule a spa day. You have several options here, one is to spend a day alone at home (after all, there is a pandemic out there) and order your favorite products online. An excellent alternative to get out of the house will be to book a massage, or even a whole day, at a local spa.
Pamper yourself, relax, and be sure to get your nails done to highlight your beautiful engagement ring.
