Shopping for a wedding ring can be a very fun and exciting experience. To make the most out of the hopefully once in a lifetime experience follow the advice below for what to look for when picking out a wedding ring. First when picking out a wedding ring you want to make sure that you choose a good jeweler. Just because the store is all fancy and the prices are through the roof, doesn’t mean they are good. Ask friends and family for recommendations. You can also look online through the Better Business Bureau. You want to make sure you are comfortable with who you choose to work with. They are not only pleasant, but you are able to get a hold of them and they respond to calls or emails in a timely manner. You can make sure the jeweler you choose is certified. Feel free to ask about their credentials when you first start seeing their inventory. Cartier Fort Lauderdale is a great option to look at. Don’t underestimate the importance of a good jeweler. You want to make sure your ring is made very well and that you can trust the craftsmanship. Second when picking out a wedding ring you want to find out your fiancés taste. Chances are the woman wants to be part of the decision making process, so if you want to surprise her, buy a cheap ring at Walmart and go shopping for a real one later.
Feel free to ask her what style she likes. Does she like a lot of bling and glitter or does she prefer something more plain and simple? If you trust her friends and family not to spill the beans of a surprise ask them for their opinions of what she’d like or prefer in a ring. You can get some good ideas from how she dresses and the types of jewelry she already wears. I know for me personally, I wanted to chose the ring on my own so I made this clear to my boyfriend at the time. Third, whining picking out a wedding ring you want to fix the budget you have and what you are able to spend. A good rule of thumb is that the male should spend about two months salary on the ring he purchases. This by no means is a rule, just tradition. When you walk into a jeweler make sure to be upfront about your price range budget so that they can help to steer you in the right direction and keep you focused on reality. Don’t get into debt for a ring. Buy something in your price range, and upgrade later, as in years down the road, if needed. Keep in mind that you can also custom make rings and sometimes jewelers are able to work with you to make something great with your particular budget. Lastly, keep in mind the practicality of the ring you purchase. Make sure it fits for the type of person she is and the activities she engages in. If she is a real active, outdoors person perhaps something a little less gaudy would be most appropriate.
