How to Shop For an Engagement Ring

Finding the perfect engagement ring for your significant other can be a stressful and even challenging process. If you are new to the jewelry and diamond world, it might even seem like a foreign language. Then there comes the pricing and budgeting, the style of the ring, and the type of diamond. Fuller’s Jewelry is here to simplify the process of shopping for the engagement ring and help you find the perfect gem for your life partner.

Set a Budget

The first step in the shopping process is to set a budget. You don’t want to go into a jewelry store without having a budget in mind because it will make your decision tougher. When you have a budget, you are able to limit the options and refine your focus. There is no rule that sets your budget for the engagement ring, but we recommend choosing one you feel comfortable in. 

You may have heard people say that you should invest a three months salary, but that’s not always the case. What you should really keep in mind is what your partner wants and desires in a ring, and what your personal circumstances are. 

Fuller’s Jewelry will help you find the perfect size, style, and diamond that fits well within your budget. We offer a variety of gem options, such as diamond substitutes and lab-created diamonds that are more budget-friendly solutions. Just let us know what you are looking for and we’ll help you find it. We also offer financing options to make the perfect gem affordable.

Choosing a Diamond

When choosing a diamond, you need to understand the 4 C’s. These C’s are cut, color, carat weight, and clarity. Once you have a better understanding of them, you will be able to find a ring that fits within your budget. To start off, choose a diamond shape and then we can take a look at the sizes and quality. A smaller diamond can get you a higher quality diamond. If you want a bigger diamond, we can help you look into lab-created diamonds. Diamonds with more color are less expensive than colorless ones. The less color the diamond has the rarest it is. Think about the clarity of the diamond. If there are little to no inclusions in the diamond, the rarer it is. The cut of the diamond influences how much it sparkles. In other words, the cut influences the reflective qualities of the diamond.
