Popping the Question? Here are 3 Tips for Finding the Perfect Ring

Congrats! You've finally found the perfect woman and want to ask for her hand in marriage. You're probably fantasizing about your life together and how much fun you two will have as a married couple. Only one problem: you have no idea what kind of engagement ring you should get her.

It's completely common to know very little about engagement rings because chances are this is only your first time buying one. Here are a few tips that will hopefully help you find the perfect ring for your perfect finance.

Visit a Professional Jewelry Shop

Since you aren't too sure about all the nuances and intricacies involved in engagement ring shopping, you should consult with experienced professionals who are. Visiting a quality jewelry shop is a must if you're shopping for engagement rings because the workers on site will know exactly how to help. These professionals will know the four Cs of how to determine a diamond's value -- clarity, color, cut, and carat -- and can help you select the perfect one. It's important to realize that you don't have to purchase the first ring you see, and you can make as many visits as you want before you actually make your decision. But build a relationship with a few employees at the jewelry shop so you don't have to go over everything each time you speak to them.

Do Research Online for Custom Rings

Although you should purchase the ring in person, doing online research can help you learn more about what to look for. You can take a look at all kinds of custom rings on the Internet and learn about what makes them special. If one catches your eye, print out a picture of it and show it to the jeweler you are in contact with. They will help you find an even nicer one in-store that matches the style you picked out.

Trust Your Gut

You can spend months going in and out of stores and scrolling through hundreds of ring images online, but if at any moment one ring just calls out to you, don't even reconsider because that's the one. This is the most important decision of your life and if a certain ring just has that look -- go for it.

On that note, here is the meaning behind the birthstones for all 12 months of the year.

Jewelry is supposed to sparkle and shine. We all want our earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings to attract attention. But it can easily lose that luster and appear dull and cloudy. Even jewelry that has not been worn for a while needs a good polishing.
