Start a Wish List
As you are looking through the many options with your partner start a wish list. What are they most excited about as you are going through pictures of rings? Are there a certain few rings they return to over and over? It is important to make a trip to a jewelry store to see how different styles look on their hand as not every style will look good on every hand. This step really should not be skipped so that the final choice of ring will be perfect on their finger. You want the ring to be something they are excited to wear partly because it looks so good. It is important to know which styles you want to avoid so that the wish list will become relatively short. If you have too many options it will be more difficult to find the best engagement rings in Scottsdale, AZ.
The Shape of the Center Stone
The shape of the center stone many times determines the style of the ring. Traditional engagement rings feature a diamond as the center stone but this rule has been broken. Since the wife of Prince Edward started the colored engagement ring trend royals and celebrities have opted for many different gem stones from ruby rings to various sapphire stones. When strongly considering a gem stone other than a diamond the partner should try on a ring with that stone as the center stone so that they can decide if they like the color of that stone on their hand. Some skin tones will not look good with some gem stone colors. It is important to keep in mind that the ring will be worn every day with many different outfits from casual to formal. If a gemstone other than a diamond is chosen be sure that both members of the couple agree. You don’t want a disagreement that will last a lifetime.
Not sure what your partner likes
What to do if you are unsure as to what your partner likes can feel like a major problem that can’t be solved. Don’t fret! A solution to this problem is to have the ring-giving partner choose the center diamond or other gemstone. Have it set in a classic solitaire setting for presentation at the proposal. Later the ring-recipient partner can return to E. D. Marshall Jewelers to make a ring using the stone that they absolutely love. We never fail to make the finest engagement rings in Scottsdale, AZ.
