Engagement Ring Buying Tips for Couples

Communication is key in any relationship- especially when it comes to taking big steps like becoming exclusive, moving in together... and getting engaged. Picking out an engagement ring is best done with communication beforehand. Even if you or your partner are planning a surprise proposal, it's a good idea to discuss a few key factors as a couple.

You will wear your engagement ring for years to come, through all seasons and all life events, so now is the time to explore, discuss, and try on different shapes, styles, and sizes to find a ring that feels just right for you.

While you can visit our showroom in the Seybold Building today and purchase an engagement ring, there is a lot of value in a little preparation. Start with the questions below and visit us when you are ready to find your dream engagement ring.

Get to Know the Different Engagement Ring Styles
It's a good idea to get a basic understanding of different engagement ring styles to start off with. Consider a simple solitaire, a bold halo, or a pretty vintage design to get started. You can explore different engagement ring styles here.

Decide Which Type of Gemstone or Diamond You Want
Many couples are opting for engagement rings featuring a center or accent colored gemstones. Consider if you want only white diamonds, or if you'd like to include some color as a nod to your favorite color, birthstone, or the month you plan to marry. Consider sapphires, rubies, emeralds, or fancy-colored diamonds.

Decide on the Shape
There are a number of different diamond shapes or "cuts" available, and having an idea of which you prefer (round, pear, heart, and more!) will make it much easier to find the perfect gem for your engagement ring. The diamond shape might be the most visually significant choice you make, so be sure to consider shapes that reflect your personal style.

Figure Out Your Ring Size
We can measure your ring most accurately in the showroom.

Get an Idea of Budget
It might not be the first thing you want to talk about when considering a proposal, but getting an idea of budget is healthy and helps set expectations for both partners. There are a lot of engagement rings out there, and getting an idea of budget early helps narrow the choices and keep you on track.

Try It On For Size
While it's easy to fall in love with engagement rings on Pinterest or Instagram, it's also a good idea to try on different styles in person. You'll want to know how the ring really feels and fits on your hand until you actually see it up close.

By Stephanie P. / December 2020
+ Buchwald Jewelers is the best! Lucrecia is always so pleasant and helpful. I found the perfect diamond for my engagement ring at Buchwald after searching high and low for the perfect pear shape. We always come back to Buchwald for special occasions.

+ I just upgraded my tennis bracelet at Buchwald for Christmas. One of the things we love most about Buchwald is if you buy there you can always trade in your jewelry for an upgrade.
