Avoid Common Buying Mistakes When Shopping for Engagement Rings for Your Fiancé

The engagement ring is symbolic of your commitment to keep the promise for getting married. The ring will be something that she will wear throughout her life. It is thus essential to purchase a quality engagement ring that will fit her personal preferences and lifestyle to ensure that she will proudly wear it.

Since you most probably don’t regularly buy engagement rings, you will benefit from a bit of guidance to help you avoid common pitfalls when shopping for the perfect engagement ring.

Ask to See the Loose Diamond

Where possible, you will want to see the diamonds to be used in their cut and loose state, because this will help determine the actual size and quality of the diamond. We enable this through our online browsing facility and you can view the diamonds at our office.

Don’t Pay Extra for a Warranty

If you have to pay extra for a warranty on the gemstone or ring you should be concerned. If the jeweller is sure of the quality, they will gladly back their claims with warranties on their engagement rings. We at Naturally Diamonds supply certified diamonds and thus provide you a warranty of quality.

Wide Variety is Essential

Don’t limit your imagination because of the small variety engagement rings offered by a jeweller. Buy from a supplier such as Naturally Diamonds that provides you with an extensive range of stone size, quality, cuts and setting options. In this way you will be able to get the engagement ring of your choice – something as unique and special as your dearly beloved.

Custom Designs for Best Results

If you don’t find a design that suits her style and preferences, you should have the option of custom designing a ring. Fortunately, we offer you a wide range of rings and optimal personal service for custom designing the ring to ensure best customer satisfaction.

Superior Quality Diamonds and Tanzanites

Don’t compromise on the quality of diamonds or tanzanites. Make sure that the stones you use in the making of her ring are certified and come from reputable sources.

Buying from Chain Retail Jewellers

Unless you don’t mind spending far more than you are supposed to for an engagement ring, don’t shop at conventional chain jewellers alone. Though they may have excellent specials, you will still end up paying a mark-up of 400 to 600% on the diamonds. Rather cut out the middleman and buy your diamonds at wholesale prices through suppliers such as Naturally Diamonds. This will help you to get better quality, larger diamonds and custom designs at a fraction of what it would cost at one of the conventional jewellers.

Understanding Her Preferences

Remember the ring will be on her finger. It doesn’t matter what you like. Do a bit of research first by enquiring from her friends and family members about her ring size, the type of jewellery she prefers and hints regarding the setting, band style, and metal of choice, band width, diamond shape or whether she prefers several diamonds. Once you know what she wants you can do your search. If need be look at rings at various shops in a casual manner when you’re shopping together. This will give you an indication what her style is. You can also look at her social media status to get a feel for what she likes and dislikes.

Don’t Fall for Sales Pressure

One of the disadvantages of a conventional jewellery store visit is that you have to deal with sales people who can easily pressure you into buying a ring. This is especially true when the store has a sale. Don’t fall into the trap of buying an engagement ring because the store has a sale that will end in a few days.

Now that you know what to do and what to avoid, it is time to find out what she likes before viewing our full range of engagement ring. You can also contact us for custom design assistance to ensure that the ring you buy meets and exceeds her expectations.
