The Importance of Finding an Engagement Ring That Fits Your Fiancees Style!!

When you ask for a woman’s hand in marriage there’s a lot to consider. Next to wondering if she’ll say yes, the biggest concern is whether she’ll love the engagement ring.

It’s no secret women give an engagement ring a lot of weight, even beyond carats. For many women it’s the ultimate accessory.  If your fiancé prides herself on being a fashion forward femme the pressure to pick something stylish is that much higher. Trendsetters are great. They’re adventurous and have a level of confidence most people will never achieve. But they also have a tendency to jump from one style to the next.
There are a lot of reasons to carefully consider the style of an engagement ring before simply going with what’s currently en vogue:
  • She’ll be wearing it the rest of her life and some styles have a way of losing their trendiness.
  • The style you choose shows how much you know her aesthetic.
  • The ring is a representation of your love, not what the general public likes at the moment. 
  • It could become a family heirloom that gets passed down for hundreds of years.

That doesn’t mean you should shy away from trendy styles when you’re picking an engagement ring. Just don’t let what your fiance is currently into be the sole guiding factor.

How to Find an Engagement Ring That Will Look Great Now and Forever

Marriage, like the engagement ring, must stand the test of time. Get yours off to a good start by using the tips below when you are looking for engagement rings in Denver – or any location in fact. You want to choose an engagement ring that will fit your fiancée’s style and still look amazing on your 50th anniversary!

Stick to Her Principles

Sometimes principles transcend all sense of style. For example, some women prefer moissanite engagement rings because of concerns about diamond mining. For others budget is much more important so they don’t necessarily want a diamond as the center stone. In other words, make sure whatever ring you choose aligns with your fiancée’s principles first and foremost.

Consider How She Normally Dresses
What does your girlfriend wear on a day-to-day basis? Is there a certain type of attire or dress code at her work? Does she use her hands a lot? Does she wear gold or silver more? Before you start shopping for a ring pay attention to how your girlfriend dresses for a week or two. This will give you a better sense of her overall style and what type of ring will be easy to wear.
Keep at Least One Aspect Classic
If you want to choose something unconventional or trendy because it suits your fiancée’s style by all means do so. But keep it from going too trendy by anchoring it with a classic element. For instance, if you want to do a sapphire for the center stone, stick to a round cut. If you want to do something different by selecting a black gold band then make the center stone a round diamond.

Go Trendier With the Wedding Band

When it comes to marriage bling, there are actually two pieces of jewelry: the engagement ring and wedding band. The engagement ring is the showstopper that most people notice first. Since the wedding band isn’t the focal point you can get away with doing something trendier. Just make sure it still matches the engagement ring in some way so there’s not a complete disconnect.

Don’t Let Her Friends’ Rings Sway You
Once you reach a certain age many of your friends are either getting married or have already tied the knot. Turns out there’s a lot of social pressure associated with engagement rings. In our social media-driven world there’s a huge amount of pressure because the ring will likely be displayed for all the world to see.
It’s tempting to go on Instagram or Facebook and start scouring your friends accounts for pictures of their engagement rings. You want to make sure you get a ring that’s equally impressive, right? The thing is your female friends are not your girlfriend (hopefully future fiance). And their husbands aren’t you. You may feel pressure to keep up with the Joneses, but keep in mind your girlfriend will have the ring forever, but she may not keep the friends that long.

    It is very true that peer pressure counts for a lot of disappointments with the ring you received… that is one thing that one must address and realize that it is YOUR ring and the person who gave it to you did so with love in their heart…

    When I was getting married, I only purchased a thin platinum band, could not afford much at all. If I could buy one now, I may settle for a lab created moissanite or a stimulant.

    I’m so complicated I don’t think he’d EVER get it right… lol I think my reaction would be something like:
    HIM: Will you marry me?
    ME: mmmmmm….ok…..how much did you pay for the ring? why isn’t it white gold? weren’t there bigger stones?
    hahahahahahahaha

    I love the “keep it classic” tip! This is something you’re going to have for a long time so it does need to be something you’ll never get tired of 🙂

    I had a friend who flipped out when she found out her ring wasn’t a diamond (he couldn’t afford one) So she demanded he replace it. Maybe it’s better to pick them out together to avoid reactions like that… 😮

    A lot of couples these days pick out the ring together. I guess, at least that guarantees she will like it, lol.

    I don’t anticipate this being an issue for me any time in the foreseeable future, but if it was…I’ve never been a ring person. I winder if engagement bracelets are allowed, lol??

    My bff and I were talking about this the other day. I’m not gonna lie and say that I don’t like pretty rings, but it isn’t important at the end of the day. I don’t want my love to go broke over this. There are more important things to worry about. 😀

    What an important post!.. Too many men my son included went way out of their financial means to purchase an engagement ring for their intended….Generosity is great and to see the young ladies face light up with the ring is a pleasure but you have to pay the bill!
