Buying an engagement ring should be made with your heart but also with your head. Many couples feel rushed and are afraid to ask the right questions before they make such an important decision.
We encourage our clients to ask, to learn and to share their concerns with us, so they will live happily ever after not only with each other but with their jewelry choice!
To make sure your precious ring stays this way for many years to come, follow our tips:
Choose The Right Stone
We love unique gems stones, but most of them are very fragile, in comparison to a diamond, and so they don't make the best choice for a center stone in your engagement ring.
For example, an emerald has a 7.5-8 hardness and a pearl is ranked only 2.5 on the Mohs hardness scale, while a diamond has is ranked 10. This makes a diamond a better choice since it is less likely to easily get the diamond scratched or abraded.
Since you are probably going to wear your engagement ring most of the day, every day... keep in mind you will have to be extra cautious and make sure not to bump your ring at any hard surface.
Unless you go periodically to your jeweler to clean and secure the stones on your ring, they probably got a little loose and a prong or two might be broken. make sure all stones are secured tightly onto the ring and that all the prongs are intact.
It's a good practice to visit your local jeweler for a periodical checkup to inspect for any potential flaws or issues and avoid accidental ring damage.
Insure Your Investment
No one likes to even imagine that they may lose their engagement ring, but unfortunately, these events happen more often than you might think.
Having insurance will protect your investment in case your ring got lost or stolen. you will be able to be compensated based on the assessed value of your ring.
