In the last post, we discussed some of the most critical mistakes to avoid when shopping for an engagement ring. Having a full understanding of these mistakes will maximize your chances of buying the perfect ring. Here’s part two of our guide that will explore some more common mistakes to avoid when shopping for womens wedding sets and engagement rings.
Not understanding your choice of metals
Many buyers may think that they have two main options for metals: gold and silver. However, there’s much more to be considered when it comes to choosing the right metal type in comparison with the stone type and size. In reality, the most popular metal options are gold and platinum, but if you do choose gold, you’ll also have to choose between white gold, yellow gold, and rose gold. As for karats, 18-karat and 14-karat tend to be the most popular options.
Having the ‘two month’s salary’ mindset
It’s obviously important to purchase a ring that’s within your budget, but don’t feel like you need to have a secret formula when it comes to determining how much you should spend. The ring is about the thought and symbol of love behind it, not the cost. As long as you choose something within your budget and try to accommodate your significant other’s tastes, you should be fine.
Ultimately, avoiding these mistakes can help you make the best engagement ring purchase. Keep an eye out for the third and final installment of our guide to avoiding these engagement ring buying mistakes.
