This is an article on how to buy a diamond engagement ring. There are men who do not understand the inherent symbolism of an engagement ring. It is a mark of commitment, promise of ultimate love and devotion and so on.

I like engagement rings

I don’t think that you have to spend a fortune, but women appreciate the tradition of the engagement ring. The tradition of the diamond engagement ring began in 1477 when Archduke Maximillian of Austria bought lots of diamonds to his future wife, Mary of Burgundy. Since then, the tradition has spread throughout the Judeo-Christian ethos and men began spending an inordinate amount of effort, time and money in order to find the perfect ring for their soon-to-be spouses.

Blame the women

Many men believe that women are to blame for all account liquidations in the name of the ideal finger, especially those who have been through costly divorces.  You must separate yourself from other couples, diamond engagement rings and lofty expectations so that you can start your personal path with the perfect ring for your woman and circumstances.

These are some things to take into consideration before buying a ring:


A diamond expert would tell you that when it comes to buying an engagement ring, you must follow the two-month rule and by that I mean that you have to spend your, at least, two-month salary on the ring. Some men spend more, others less, but, no matter what, the choice is yours.

The four C’s

If you want to buy her a diamond engagement ring, you must learn about: carat, clarity, color and cut in order to know what determines the cost of a diamond ring.

Carat: This refers to the weight of the diamond. The bigger the diamond, the more expensive it is.

Clarity: Part of the diamond’s price is based on luster and sheen, which is related to the quality of the stone. Fewer flaws visible with the naked eye mean that the diamond is more expensive.

Color: There are color grades for white diamonds, from D-E-F the clear ones to V-W-X those with a yellow tint. The price is higher for the clear one. Other colorful diamonds such as pink diamonds are rare and very expensive.

Cut: This is the most elusive C to understand. The amount of light that enters the diamond and gives it the brilliance and sparkle depends on the cut.


Certification of diamond

If you want a diamond ring, make sure that you buy it from reputable jewelers who can certify the stone and give you a certificate of authenticity. The document will outline the characteristics of the stone, but not its price.

The ring’s band

The best setting of a diamond is in platinum, but you can also choose silver, gold or white gold. You must find out her taste and go from there. Go for modesty and class for a timeless look.

Her ring size

In order to find her ring size you can take one of her rings  and press it into a bar of soap or trace the outline onto a piece of paper. You can also push it down to your finger and see where it stops.

Customize or not?

If you want to buy the perfect ring, you must make it unique and custom-made.  It requires a lot of research but you might also be lucky enough to pick the ring with her on your side.  Though, you might want to do it alone because you can brag more and the ultimate reward will be much sweeter.

Know her

If you want to buy her the perfect ring, you must know her. You must observe her demeanor, body language, her dress and all the allusions she makes about jewelry, fashion and style. If you are wondering if this diamond will be an investment, the answer is no, but it is an example of commitment, love and devotion. For some, a diamond ring is actually priceless, but no matter what ring you are going to choose, if she loves you, she will be happy.
