Are you getting ready to propose to your girlfriend? Most people don’t have much knowledge about engagement rings before they figure out they are ready to propose. Luckily, the internet has more information than you could ever read about choosing an engagement ring that will suit your girlfriend perfectly. The video below is a great place to start. It covers 10 things you should know before you go out to buy an engagement ring.
If you want to make sure the engagement ring looks absolutely perfect on your girlfriend’s finger, you should pay attention to the length of her fingers.
If she has long fingers, you should choose a ring with an emerald or princess cut stone. This ring will complement the length of her fingers. If she has shorter fingers, go with a ring that won’t make her fingers look shorter. A round stone or a ring with stones set parallel to the band instead of perpendicular to it will look lovely.
You should also familiarize yourself with the kinds of stones your girlfriend loves. Does she want a diamond or would she prefer a ring with a colored stone? Do note that gemstones vary widely in hardness. Your best picks for a stone she’ll wear every day are hard stones like diamonds, rubies, and sapphires.
