How to Pick the Perfect Engagement Ring

(StatePoint) An engagement ring is at once a symbol of love and commitment and also a reflection of a woman’s personal style. For the engaged-to-be who hasn’t quite determined the perfect sparkler for herself, articulating an engagement ring style can seem challenging.

That’s where a trusted jeweler like Jared The Galleria Of Jewelry can help, where sales associates are committed to helping every happily ever after begin with the perfect ring – and that means taking the time to understand every future bride’s personal taste. Here are a few tips to help determine what your engagement ring style may be.

Timeless Beauty

For the woman who prefers a more traditional style (think clean designs and sophisticated patterns), a classic engagement ring may be the perfect fit. A great example of this is the solitaire setting, which focuses on highlighting the gorgeous center stone, offering an elegant statement. A modern take on this classic would be the halo setting where an outline of diamonds encircles and enhances the center stone for a slight twist on tradition.

 A Touch of Romance

The woman who thoughtfully selects every accessory to offer the perfect complement to any look knows it’s all about the details. An engagement ring with ornate design and intricate craftsmanship offers a distinct, vintage feel inspired by and echoing the most romantic eras of the past. From milgrain finishing to delicate antiquing, these subtle touches offer something extra special – which is fitting for such an important piece of jewelry. 

Forever Fashion Forward

The fashionista prides herself on being one-of-a-kind, so her engagement ring obviously has to follow suit. From embracing fancy shape center stones (like pear, emerald, marquise, and oval) to standing out with a gorgeous rose gold or mixed metal setting, there are many options to ensure the engagement ring is as head-turning as the woman wearing it.

If you are still unsure of the style that’s right for you – fear not, retailers like Jared The Galleria Of Jewelry can be a good place to go for inspiration. They have a huge selection of the most popular collections and styles and even offer the option for you to design the perfect engagement ring yourself. Every Jared store offers a Custom Design Studio where customers can bring their jewelry dreams to life. Certified diamontologists and master craftsmen work directly with each customer to create a completely original piece of jewelry. Once aligned on the general design, the customer is able to customize from selecting the type and color of metal to deciding on the shape and cut of the diamond.

For what may be the most important piece of jewelry you will ever wear, take the time to understand your options, and find a piece that suits your style completely.
