I'LL BE COUNTING ON YOU AGAIN...The diamond necklace I gave to my wife Karen for our anniversary was more beautiful than I had hoped. She loved it. Thank you so much for making our special day even more special.
HER LIFESTYLE AND CAREER ARE IMPORTANT - Follow These Steps to Pick a Jewelry Style That's Right for Her!
Lifestyle: The first consideration when choosing an engagement ring, wedding ring or other jewelry for your loved one is her lifestyle. Is she very active? Will her jewelry need to stand up to an adventurous lifestyle of mountain climbing? If your beloved is very active, you should probably stay away from stone shapes that are easily chipped or broken. Pear and Marquise shaped diamonds contain points that can easily chip. High settings are also more inclined to suffer damage from hitting hard surfaces and catching on everyday objects and clothing.
Career: If she has a career that involves using her hands such as in medicine she will need to wear latex gloves. Taking these on and off all day can cause some problems if she receives a ring with a very high setting. Ask about a lower profile setting or a bezel setting.
The size of her hands and length of her fingers are also important:
Are her hands small, and are her fingers short? Or does she have a long and slender hand? These are questions you will need to consider when choosing your wedding ring sets. A broad banded ring will not flatter a small hand with short fingers, however, it will balance the proportion of a long, slender fingered hand. A small engagement ring will make a larger hand appear bigger and most women do not like that! Hand size and proportion are very important when deciding on the engagement ring or wedding ring sets. Take a good look at your loved one's hand and decide what size of engagement ring will look best. You can still choose from all of the styles, but you must keep proportion in mind.
Will the engagement ring look good when you put a wedding ring next to it?
Finally, remember that you will purchase a wedding band to be given on the day of your marriage. It is important that the engagement ring and wedding band complement one another. We offer a wide variety of wedding ring sets to make this process effortless. Want more information about ring styles or setting choices?
