3 Simple Tips for Picking a Unique Engagement Ring

There are a lot of reasons why picking an engagement ring is one of the most important and daunting parts of a relationship. It represents a turning point in both of your lives, and your fiancée is most likely going to wear the ring for a very long time. The ring is the symbol of your unique love story. You’re telling your fiancée that she is the one for you, so why shouldn’t the ring be “the one” too?

Your brain is probably already mulling over every detail of your upcoming proposal, so be sure not to let this wonderful occasion stress you out too much. There are a few different ways to pick something unique for your partner without making ring shopping too complicated. Here are three tips to help make the whole experience less stressful and overwhelming.

Think beyond diamonds

Many engagement rings feature a sparkly diamond, but there are plenty more options as far as stones go. Even Princess Diana was proposed to with a non-diamond ring–one that prominently featured a sapphire.
If your fiancée has a favorite color or likes to wear her birthstone, consider getting her a ring that reflects these interests.

It’s also becoming popular to ditch metal rings altogether in favor of silicone, especially for very active couples or those who have jobs that require getting their hands dirty. Rings with wooden accents also provide a non-traditional but classy look for men or women.

Design the ring yourself

Maybe you’ll find yourself wandering in and out of every jeweler you can find and still not spot the right ring for your partner. But if this is the case, don’t give up! You still have the option to create your very own design.

Even if you do go for the traditional diamond ring, there are plenty of other ways to get creative with the ring, customizing its size, design, the finish of the band, and so on. You could even include a message inscribed on the band for extra personalization.

And you don’t have to look far and wide to find these types of customization services. There are several well-known websites and jewelry shops that have departments available for the sole purpose of helping you design a ring that’s never been seen before.

Know your significant other’s style

Thinking about how your partner dresses, what kind of colors she likes, and other elements of her own personal style will help you get an idea of the kind of ring she will like. Think about the parts of her style or personality that you love the most.

For example, if you love the way your girlfriend acts like a modern-day princess, get her an ornate ring that makes her feel like one all the time. If you love how your boyfriend is low-maintenance and a man of simple tastes, get him a band that’s not too intricate, but still interesting.

But if all the stress of ring shopping has you frazzled and you need a little guidance, jewelers can usually help you figure out what to get by asking some questions about your partner’s style as well.

Even though you worked hard to choose the engagement ring just for your special someone, eventually everyone will be oohing and aahing over it. Every time your fiancée shows off her hand and every ring picture she posts will show the care you put into picking out the perfect ring for her.

In the excitement of the engagement, you will encounter a lot of friends and family members offering you their opinions and advice. You might suddenly feel like you can’t handle all the attention! But one thing you can totally handle is picking out the ring that will serve as a reminder of your love forever.
