 Choosing an engagement ring can sound like a lot of pressure. Check out this guide on how to pick an engagement ring that your lover will adore.

 Congratulations, you've found the person you want to spend the rest of your life with! Planning a proposal is an exciting time, but also very stressful as you try to pull off the big event without your partner's knowledge.

Then there's the quest for the perfect engagement ring. Luckily, when you know what to look for, finding the right fit is easy, and your future fiancée will love it no matter what.

Wondering how to pick an engagement ring your partner will adore? Read on to find out the basics of engagement ring shopping. 

Find Out Your Partner's Ring Size

Rule no.1 of picking an engagement ring is knowing your partner's ring size. Find a ring that your partner wears on their ring finger and take it to the jewelry store.

This is a bit risky because your partner may notice the ring is missing, so a safer option is to trace the inside of the ring on a piece of paper. You can always resize the ring in case it doesn't fit.

Consider Your Budget

The next step to learning how to buy an engagement ring is setting a budget. This will help you discover your options and decide on the type of metal, gemstone, and style.

The price of the ring doesn't determine your love and commitment to your partner, so whichever budget you're comfortable with is the right one.

Choose a Ring Style

Once you've set a budget and have the ring size, it's time to choose a ring style. Consider your partner's personal style in terms of fashion and jewelry. Look into their jewelry box to see the types of accessories they wear.

Check if the jewelry is mostly gold or silver to find out your partner's preference. Also, the ring should match both casual and occasion wear and go with almost everything in your partner's closet.

Decide on a Gemstone

Diamond rings are the most popular and most expensive, followed by sapphire and moissanite rings. These gemstones are also the hardest and most durable, so if you have the budget, they are a safe bet.

If your partner wants a colored gemstone, try amethyst, ruby, emerald, pearl, morganite, opal, or topaz. These are also more affordable, so you can get a bigger stone for a fraction of the budget.

Choose a Gemstone Shape

The most common shapes for a gemstone are round, oval, square, rectangular, pear, heart, and almond. What you choose depends on your partner's style and wishes, so take a peek at their current rings to see which shape prevails. These are all classic shapes, so whatever you pick, you'll get it right.

Once you decide on the shape, you should choose a cut. This is the way the gemstone is cut under different angles to reflect the light and be sparkly.
Choose a Precious Metal

Engagement rings can be gold (white, yellow, or rose) or platinum, which are more costly and more durable. Sterling silver and rhodium plating are more affordable, strong precious metals that are equally beautiful if your budget is limited.

To see what your partner prefers, consult their jewelry stack and see what metal prevails. If you can't decide, gold is the safest option that can fit almost any budget and style.

"A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

Albert Einstein
