Getting engaged on Valentine’s Day
Shockingly, Valentine’s Day is not the most popular time of the year to get engaged. Only 8 percent of couples popped the question on this holiday dedicated to love, compared to 19 percent in the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas. If you decide to ask for your love’s hand in marriage this February 14th, here are some tips for choosing the right style engagement ring to ensure the answer is a resounding yes!
- Don’t get caught up in trends. Choose an engagement ring that matches your sweetheart’s personality and style instead.
- Don’t focus on perfection. The four Cs – color, cut, clarity, carat – are important when shopping for an engagement ring, but don’t become obsessed with finding the perfect gemstone. There is no such thing.
- Don’t stress about the size. We’ve all heard the mantra, “go big or go home.” When it comes to choosing an engagement ring, ignore that directive. Even the smallest of gemstones can sparkle and shine with the right clarity and cut.
- Do consider a custom jewelry design. Can’t find what you’re looking for in our pre-designed selection of engagement rings? No problem! You can work with one of our gemologists and Master Jewelers to design the ring of your future fiancée’s dreams.
Giving the gift of jewelry this Valentine’s Day shouldn’t be a stressful experience. Stop by our showroom to get help choosing just the right piece of designer jewelry for your sweetie from one of our gemologists.
