There is no doubt that finding an engagement ring in Maples, IN that reflects your love and commitment to the woman you plan to marry is intimidating. If just the thought of making the wrong choice in a Maples, IN engagement ring has kept you from proposing, we are here to help you get the process underway. Of course, if you are reading this page, then it is probably safe to say that you have started looking for an engagement ring in Maples, IN, but still have not found one.
BC Custom Jewelry is here to help guide you through the process of finding not just an ideal engagement ring in Maples, IN, but to ultimately find the perfect fit for the woman of your life. There was a time when all you had to do was find a diamond solitaire engagement ring that would fit snugly, but not too snug, on the “ring finger” of your loved one, but times have certainly changed! Now, you have to consider a number of different things, which makes finding the right engagement ring in Maples, IN incredibly daunting for most men.
Before you take the plunge and drop your life savings on what you think is the right engagement ring, we have compiled a list of things that you should consider.
Beware of the Judgments
Rather than taking what may be considered the “easy route”, you may want to avoid selecting a simple solitaire engagement ring and think about the alternatives. Most women today are going to immediately snap a picture (probably without your knowledge) and post it on Facebook and Pinterest and every other social media network they participate in to show off their new and exciting piece of jewelry. This is a special moment, so you need to know that your choice of ring is going to be judged by not just her, but everyone she knows. (No pressure!)
Size & Budget
If the size of your wallet is a huge factor, there are a couple of things that you need to know. First of all, if you purchase a diamond with a carat weight that is just below the even number (1.9 carats versus 2 carats), you can save about 20%. Also, take a look at the wedding bands that are laden with pave diamonds to see if they might be an option that fits her style and taste. You could save up to 90% if you purchase a Maples, IN engagement ring with a total of just less than 2 carats of pave diamonds when compared to one solitaire diamond of the same weight.
If you are still planning on getting a solitaire engagement ring in Maples, IN, you know what is best for her. When it comes to diamond solitaires, if you want a diamond to appear bigger, you need to compare different settings. The deeper the setting, the smaller the diamond will appear. Generally, a bezel setting will make a diamond appear larger than a prong setting, for example. While you are shopping for engagement rings in Maples, IN, ask to compare diamonds of the same carat weight in different settings so that you can visualize the difference that the settings make.
The Importance of the Metal
By now, we hope that you have a good idea of which types of metals your lady normally wears. Some women strictly wear yellow gold, but there are plenty of women who prefer white gold or silver. Typically, gold and platinum are the most popular engagement rings in Maples, IN. Platinum will dig deeper into your wallet than gold will. As a matter of fact, if you were to compare to similar weight engagement rings, the platinum one would cost around $500 or $600 more than the gold one would. This is because platinum is a harder metal, which makes it more durable and less susceptible to scratches, and the prongs are stronger, therefore ensuring a more secure fitting with the diamond.
Consider A Custom Made Engagement Ring in Maples, IN
There is a good chance that you have a mental picture – a vision – of the engagement ring that you want to get for her, but simply cannot find it in any Maples, IN engagement rings stores, or even on the Internet. Maybe you envision an engagement ring with intricate and delicate details along the band. Maybe you have found two rings that, if combined, would make the ring of her dreams. That is where we come in.
