You’ve made the decision to propose to your loved one, now what’s next?
The engagement ring is the most important decision that you will make before the wedding. A custom engagement ring is a great way to show your love and how much you know your loved one, not to mention that it will remain a special symbol for both of you even after your big day. So, what should you consider when you go on a hunt for custom engagement rings Melbourne?
Comfort is Key
When it comes to getting the best engagement ring in Melbourne, looks are not everything. Your loved one will wear the engagement ring all the time, every day, therefore you have to make sure it is comfortable. Your Melbourne jeweller is there to guide you in the right direction, but you also have to adjust your requirements accordingly. If your partner does not like the feel of heavy/bulky rings, you may want to go for a finer band. If they are doing a lot of manual work, you may want to opt for a lower diamond setting as higher settings can get knocked and may not be ideal. Try your best to get their accurate ring size (measure or take to your Melbourne jeweller a ring that they are wearing comfortably) as well as their preferences.
Once you start looking for engagement rings Melbourne, you will find plenty of styles that look amazing and that inspire you to create a unique piece. However, you have to take into consideration that this ring needs to be just as special and unique in 10 years’ time. This means that any style that is now trending may be outdated after a couple of years. It is important that you have a rough idea of the diamond shape that your loved one prefers and try and stick to a style that they will still cherish for years to come.
