Even if you strive to be fashion-forward, there is something to be said for embracing timeless looks.
Current fashion trends can influence your wardrobe. That’s all well and good because clothes are (relatively) inexpensive and you can replace everything from one season to the next.
However, an engagement ring represents a bigger financial investment. You want to make sure that you’re going to love the look of it for years to come. This is why choosing something from this gallery of custom engagement rings will work in almost any situation.
They Become Heirlooms
It can be hard to think more than a week or so ahead in this hectic world. But when shopping for an engagement ring, this is a great time to look into the future. Consider starting your own family tradition and creating your own family heirloom.
Wouldn’t it be great to have your granddaughter wear your engagement ring someday? And wouldn’t it be great if she didn’t cringe at the thought of it because she thinks your ring is dated?
Choose something that future generations will love by choosing a classic ring that will never go out of style.
They Are Incredibly Versatile
The good news is that classic engagement rings are often more on the simple and minimalist side of design.
Even if your current fashion style is more modern, a classic ring will look amazing no matter what you’re wearing.
If you’re trying to pick out the perfect ring for your partner, experts recommend taking note of what they already wear, or taking a peek in their jewellery box to see what’s inside. Do they already wear a lot of classic yellow gold? That is your best bet.
They Are Low-Risk/ High-Wow for Surprise Proposals
Anytime you’re looking to set the stage and blindside your partner with a surprise proposal, you’re always taking a number of risks. And taking a chance on the ring design is right at the top of that list.
Jewellery may not be your forte and you may not be sure what she will want. More importantly, you may not know what she will hate. This is a purchase that you won’t want to regret.
If you’re lucky, she may have dropped a hint or two already. Women are sometimes less-than-subtle in hinting at what types of engagement rings they like. This could take the form of comments she’s made about other people’s engagement rings. So, if one of your friends pops the question, pay special attention to what she says about the ring after the fact.
A good solution for this tricky problem is to customize the engagement ring together. Custom jewellers will help you design the ring so that everything is to your fiancée’s liking. If you don’t mind spoiling the surprise, then a romantic date at the jeweller’s is the best way to go.
This is a big decision. Whatever you choose, it will be in your life for years to come. So, choose wisely!
