Buying an engagement ring is not easy, as there are many things to consider before you commit to a purchase. The following video from Valentina Fine Diamonds explains in depth about each factor you have to consider. Factors such as…
Cost and Budgeting
One of the big issue is, of course, the cost of the ring and many couples struggle with this issue. It’s important to have a budget in mind, as spending all your savings on one ring is a bit irresponsible. You want to buy a beautiful ring, but you don’t want to put yourself under pressure financially. Many couples now make the decision on the budget together, but it can be a bit difficult when a jeweler starts to show you beautiful rings that go way over budget.
Platinum is generally the most expensive choice and silver is the cheapest. Gold is the most popular ring but try to stick to 14 and 18 carats as they will be way cheaper and are more able to withstand everyday wear.

Setting and Fit
It’s important to keep in mind that your choice is influenced by your finger and hand size. You may know if a ring will suit you just by looking at it. Always try rings on as it can have a big impact on the size and shape of the stone you choose and the size and width of the ring you choose.
Even when you think you’ve found the perfect ring, give yourself a couple of days before finalizing the decision. It is a big investment after all, so you want to be absolutely sure the ring is perfect.
Don’t forget the insurance, as losing a ring is devastating enough, don’t leave yourself out of pocket as well.
