Mens Guide: Buying Engagement Rings

0c147d765d96When it comes to choosing your perfect engagement ring it is vital that you choose a ring that your partner will cherish for the rest of their life. The ring must symbolise your love and eternal commitment as well as containing unique beauty that suits your lady’s taste. This is no easy task and the pressure can get to any man searching for the perfect ring.

Here at La Vivion, we offer our expertise and guidance to help you choose the ideal ring and achieve the perfect proposal and happy engagement.

Choosing Your Engagement Ring Is Simple:


Choosing your ring need not be stressful, all you need to do consider these factors:

  • What is her taste? Look at the jewellery she already wears as this will give you many clues as to what she prefers – colours and size etc. You will get a good idea of her preferences i.e. if she likes vintage jewellery or prefers more contemporary designs.
    You do not have to choose something exactly the same as her favourite ring but you can choose a similar metal or cut etc ensuring it suits her taste.
  • Think about her lifestyle. Think about how she spends her time – is she outdoorsy, or does she prefer taking it easy? This will affect the durability of the metal and the setting of the diamond – a higher set diamond will be more likely to get damaged on the hand of a girl who is constantly active outside.
  • Consider what size will be best. Small diamonds can look large on a petite hand so think about her size and what will compliment her fingers – it is all about proportion.
  • Use those closest to her. Her family and friends are the best resource for finding out what she may like. They have most certainly heard her express her opinion on what she finds attractive in a ring, helping you find the right one.
