Are you looking to buy gold diamond rings?
Then you should definitely brush up on the following tips and tricks to finding and purchasing the perfect ring that suits your needs and budget.
Buying the right gold diamond rings, particularly if you are shopping for someone else, can be incredibly daunting.
You want to make sure that you are choosing the perfect piece, that it will suit the individual you are buying it for and that it is under your budget.
Tip #1: Focus on the person you are buying the ring for
- What sort of personality do they have?
Is the individual extroverted and showy or are they quieter and more demure? If they are the former, you should go for a showy ring, but if they are the latter then stick to a more subtle design.
You will want to go for a ring that represents the individual’s personality and says something about who they are. Colour and type of precious metal and stone will also affect what image the ring gives.
Think carefully about who the person is and ask for guidance and help from their friends or family if you have to. It is always better to do too much research rather than too little.
- What is their taste in fashion?
If an individual prefers colourful clothing and accessories, bold patterns and trendy designs, stick to that thread with the ring. However, if they prefer traditional and classic style, then go for a subtle, traditional ring.
- What does their other jewellery look like?
If their other jewellery is chunky and showy and mostly made out of yellow gold, stick to that style. Individuals usually prefer one style in jewellery and will feel out of their comfort zones if you try to get them to wear a ring that does not match their style.
- What is their skin tone, eye colour and hair colouring?
An individual’s colouring will affect how a certain type of precious metal or a certain colour stone looks on them. Many people feel very strongly about preferring either yellow gold or white gold and do not cross borders.
Luckily, white diamonds look good with every type of precious metal and against every skin tone, hair colour and eye colour. If you want to be daring and go for a stone of a different colour then first consider what it would like on the individual.
- Do they have large hands or very dainty ones?
An individual with very dainty hands will look strange with a big, chunky ring. Larger, more showy and chunky jewellery does not suit delicate hands.
Dainty, fine jewellery can also look silly and flimsy on individuals with larger, broader hands.
Tip # 2: Focus on the reason you are buying the ring
- Are you buying the ring as an engagement ring?
Traditional engagement rings usually consist of a band of either white or yellow gold and one major white diamond set into the middle of the ring. There are many variations on this ring and you do not have to stick to the traditional design, but it is a good idea to keep in mind what the traditional engagement ring looks like.
- Are you looking for a wedding ring?
A wedding ring traditionally consists of just a plain band in either white or yellow gold. It has become increasingly popular to add stones to this sort of ring.
- Are you looking for an eternity ring?
An eternity ring has a deeper band in white or yellow gold set with stones all the way around.
Tip # 3: Stay under budget by shopping smartly
Find clearance sales or stores with percentages off certain stock.
- Shop online
Online stores often have rings at really great prices.
- Re-design a ring that you already have
Use a ring that belonged to a family member and re-design it to fit the occasion.
- Shop at second hand stores
Second hand stores and pawn shops often have beautiful rings at great prices.
