So, you've decided that you're going to propose to your special lady. You've thought hard about what it means to spend the rest of your life with her and you're sure you're doing it for all the right reasons.
Now all that you need to do is buy a beautiful diamond ring and do the proposing. That should be easy enough.
On paper maybe; however in reality, buying engagement rings is rarely a straightforward task.
Thankfully, there are only a few things that you need to mindful of when buying a diamond engagement ring: the size and the clarity. The size of ring you buy needn't be massive, but it will need to be at least as big as the diamond rings worn by your special lady's friends. Similarly, the ring you buy should also have an ideal cut as this is where a diamond's true beauty lies.
Of course, price is likely to be an issue too and diamond engagement rings can be quite expensive if you decide to be extravagant and really push the boat out. However, it is worth remembering that weddings (and wedding rings) can be quite expensive these days, so you don't want to put yourself in loads of debt by investing in an engagement ring that will leave you struggling with your finances. Only ever buy what you can truly afford.
So now that you know how to buy a ring; you can get on and propose.
